EMI MUSIC is launching "Electrospective," a multi-platform campaign celebrating the development of electronic music since 1958 and the earliest days of technological innovation at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, through to the rise of current dance music superstars including DAVID GUETTA and DEADMAU5.
Electrospective brings together the EMI MUSIC, MUTE and VIRGIN catalogues chronicling the key works of visionaries like KRAFTWERK and BRIAN ENO to the success of DEPECHE MODE and THE HUMAN LEAGUE, the explosion of electronic dance music in the late 80s and the rise of global stars like DAFT PUNK and THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS.
EMI VP/Global Campaigns DAVID ROWE said, "EMI has enjoyed more than 50 years of success with electronic music artists and labels, as demonstrated by the depth and breadth of the albums featured in the campaign. With 'Electrospective' we have a unique chance to work with the genre's biggest names in order to share this inspiring story with fans on a global level."
