No doubt, EDM has become more popular than ever before, and we’re talking about way back to 1958. Though the names Avicii, Deadmau5, and David Guetta may be more familiar in today’s club scene, one sometimes forget the pioneers before them who helped transform the EDM genre to what it is today.

Luckily Electrospective, a website brining together some of the key moments in the development of Electronic Music, brings these historic heroes to light. From the work of early visionaries like Kraftwerk and Brian Eno to breakthrough groups like The Human League and Depeche Mode, Electrospective chronicles over 600 albums from the historic catalogues of EMI, Virgin & Mute Records and features contributions from over 50 of Electronic Music’s greatest protagonists.
