EMI Music announces the October launch of Electrospective, an impressive multi-platform campaign celebrating the development of electronic music since 1958. Electrospective is a global collaboration between artists, labels, and commercial, technological, digital and media partners.
Electrospective brings together the EMI Music, Mute, and Virgin catalogues, chronicling the key works of visionaries like Kraftwerk and Brian Eno as well as the ground breaking 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. The campaign features big name artist participation (David Guetta, Carl Cox, Midge Ure, Martyn Ware, Daniel Miller, etc.), live events, newly created merchandise, magazine / tech brand partnerships and promotion via branded online and social media platforms. There will be a host of opportunities to discover and rediscover electronic music in the coming months, including exclusive key artist, DJ and producer interviews, app launches, merchandise, social and print media activities.
EMI Music will also launch an Electrospective radio series hosted by KCRW Music Director and host of “Morning Becomes Eclectic” Jason Bentley, chronicling the rich electronic catalogs of EMI Music, Mute, Virgin, and Astralwerks, featuring in-depth interviews with electronic dance music visionaries. The Electrospective radio series will debut nationally in October.
Both a compilation and remix album for Electrospective will be released on October 9, 2012.
