white noise (delia derbyshire) - An Electric Storm (Remastered Edition)
*Remastered Edition* What do you mean you've never heard of White Noise? White Noise is the musical lovechild of producer David Vorhaus and electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire. There's little to connect this to her more well-known work as part of the Radiophonic Workshop - White Noise is at its core a psychedelic record, albeit with some incredible electronic production. The Silver Apples or the United States of America (considered by some to be White Noise's US equivalent) would be good reference points, but what White Noise managed was quite honestly beyond compare. Check the opening: all vocoded vocals, epic soundscapes, clattering percussion and the kind of layered production that Stereolab and Broadcast would end up making their own years later. You'll perhaps struggle to believe that this album was recorded in 1969 as you absorb the collage of samples, noise, synthesis and tape effects before you - every synthesizer part, every edit, every sound seems so perfectly placed and provides a showcase for Derbyshire's unique talents. 'An Electric Storm' is an innovative, genre-bending album that's been a huge influence on a myriad artists on the scene (Surgeon even sampled some bits..) - grab your mitts on this vinyl edition while you can.
