Rotten Vegetable Recommendations: Brian Bennett – Voyage (1978)

You can find him on numeruos compilations for Library and Soundtrack Music. May it be the huge KPM Music Library or the “Further Nuggets” compiled by Luke Vibert. Brian Bennett is one of the most charming composers of electronic kitsch from the mid 70’s.

In April this year his most funky album “Voyage (A Journey Into Discoid Funk)” got rereleased on the Australian Label “Isle Of Jura”. So chances are good tto grab a fair priced copy right now.

Various Vegetables Radio #50 | Present Past Perfect |

We start this show by silently proving that female artists in electronic music have never been a phenomenon but have been there since day one. As we move on we connect classic electronic sounds to more modern sound concepts of housish music and what we once had to call IDM. Whatever that means.
