Released in 1980 by George Fenton and Ken Freeman, this is one of the more obscure KPM's. As the title suggests it is a collection of electronic themed songs but the surprise here is that there is a strong orchestral / soundtrack vibe running through the record.

Things really begin to heat up on the ominous "Forwarning", "Mobile Unit" is a great bit of robot disco funk and "Memories Of The Future" and "Computer Crime" are absolute killers. A few of the tracks feel a bit out of place but there is also a lot to like. It's difficult to comprehend what t.v, radio show or film would have required this kind of music for their production but 30 years later and in the context of a complete listening experience, it certainly has appeal.
