In a thought-provoking format, Warp Records’ online electronic music store BLEEP, has put together both a Facebook Timeline project and 55-track mix they call Bleep’s Guide To Electronic Music.
Starting in 1930 up until present day, they chart the historical emergence of electronic music, from Alexander Graham Bell to Aphex Twin and John Baker to James Blake, and it is completely mind-blowing. On the project, they say:
Our aim with this selection of music is to show the length and breadth of the medium, providing a snapshot of the genres forms and styles, and the development of the artform. Whilst there are omissions and compromises that we have had to make, we hope that we achieve our aims and we do some justice to the variety of music that we love.
