Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan produced a whole library of unearthly electronic music for the Phillips Research laboratories in the 1950s and '60s. A snapshot of it can be heard in this compilation. Compositions such as "Drifting" could be put forward as precursors to Tangerine Dream's ambient classic Phaedra; "Song of the Second Moon" sounds like a Stanley Kubrick soundtrack out-take, with a more harmonically groove-based feel. Twisted percussion and organ samples aplenty, this album is an electronic galaxy in sound and scope.
