Sold out at source, few copies available - Even before the landing of men onto the moon or any space travels, majestic Tom Dissevelt captured the essence of the space mood and science fiction aesthetic. Fantasy in Orbit draws the blueprint for a future sound, later recognized as "Electronic Music," as simple as that. The music is this jaunty space-age swirl, with synthetic oscillations and bubbling textures, creating what is one moment playful, the next menacing, as they struggle to reign in the beast that would become electronic music. You can hear everything from bachelor pad exotica to avant-garde electronics, and even a primitive precursor to acid house. It's all here. As a side note it's music that could've been the soundtrack to 2001: A Space Odyssey, as Stanley Kubrick requested the music for a new space project he was working on. Dissevelt had never heard of him so he ignored the letter. The vibe is tremendous and vital. Proto-so-many-things. It's a relic of electronic music. Get it now.
