Label: We Are Busy Bodies
Release Date: November 12th, 2021
Canadian label We Are Busy Bodies announces the official reissue of the seminal 1959 album, The Fascinating World of Electronic Music by the Dutch electronic music pioneers Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan. In fusing jazz and experimental electronics, the album's playful compositions significantly predate other early renowned electronic music productions such as the "Dr Who" theme, realised by Delia Derbyshire at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (1963), and Wendy Carlos' Switched-On Bach (1968.) Adored by David Bowie and sampled by the likes of DJ Premier, Cyprus Hill, Klaxons, RZA and David Holmes, the music of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan holds a prominent and influential position in the long and complex history of electronic music.
