VARIOUS ARTISTS
Close To The Noise Floor: Formative UK Electronica 1975-1984
(Cherry Red)

WHO?
This four-CD box set bringing together over 60 tracks from a raft of artists who were at the forefront of the synth explosion.

WHAT WE SAID:
“There was no single unifying event for the formative UK electronica scene, no point when something suddenly clicked, no precise year zero moment. But there was a bunch of like-minded souls beavering away in what they thought was their own little void, unaware there were others just like them all over the country.”
