The multi-CD release gives a historic overview of Dutch popular and applied electronic music from 1956-63. The CD’s contain music from Henk Badings, Kid Baltan, and Tom Dissevelt. Besides tracks that have been released on vinyl in the late 50’s / early 60’s on Philips (Kain en Abel, Song of the Second Moon, Evolutionen, Electronic Movements, Contrasts, Mechanical Motions, Pianoforte, Intersection, Fanatasy in Orbit), many never before published material has been re-discovered and restored for this project.

Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
