EMI Launch Campaign to Celebrate Dance MusicJune 22nd, 2012 ⋅ News ⋅ by Ryan
EMI Music has launched its campaign celebrating the historic development of electronic music. The campaign, called ‘Electrospective’, celebrates dance music’s early beginnings from 1958 and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop all the way through to the modern-day successes of David Guetta and Deadmau5.
From the early works of visionaries like Kraftwerk and Brian Eno to the groundbreaking success of Depeche Mode and The Human League, the explosion of electronic dance music in the late 80s and the rise of global superstars like Daft Punk and Chemical Brothers.
Electrospective will collaborate artists, labels, commercial, technological, digital and media partners and will start with the launch of Electrospective.com which runs through to November 2012. This will include the chance to rediscover electronic music, including key artists, DJ and producer interviews, app launches, merchandise, social and print media activities.
There will also be a series of competitions running through to November, which includes prizes such as a Kraftwerk CD box set, a T-shirt signed by the 50 of the most influential people in electronic music, an original signed Nord Drum and more.
What’s more, a Roundtable event will take place at a London location in July that will play host to dance music’s big boys in conversation with early music pioneers discussing a range of topics. You can enter the competition to win over 450 electronic albums as well as enjoying our exclusive video and audio content but above all, enjoy the ride…
