The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

Jean-Jacques Perrey - Moog Sensations

I have a lot going on in my personal life right now, so until further notice I'm going to try to keep my posts here as brief as possible. That may mean that you will have to wait (not long) for album art, track listings, and other additional info concerning the material that I post. I'll go into more detail as soon as I have time.

It is no secret that Jean-Jacques Perrey broke considerable ground for electronic music. But did you know he also cut his fair share of sound library tracks? It makes all the sense in the world. Created for the Montparnasse 2000 label during an unspecified year (probably in the early '70s), Moog Sensations has all of the hallmarks of Perrey's brilliant sound: pulsing electronic rhythms, whimsical melodic inventiveness and virtuoso keyboard work.

Listening to tracks like "Aerolithe Alpha" and "Ballet Intersideral" one quickly understands why today's electronica artists (and even techno pioneers like Kraftwerk) owe such an incredible debt to Perrey.Perrey's cooly cerebral sonic fabrications set the stage for today's electronic musicians.
