Back in the 1950’s, electronics company Philips tried their hand at creating electronic music. The results were… interesting. That is, with the exception of the above track, a jittery cut that resembles acid house almost four decades before it was actually invented. It’s an interesting piece to listen to—just think what would have happened if people started to listen to and be inspired by this music in 1958.
