NOW are proud to present NOW That’s What I Call Electronic, this 78-track 4CD compilation features iconic tracks from legendary artists, Queen, Blondie, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, ABBA and many more.

The album showcases the emergence of synthpop as a dominant sub-genre of new wave, following the breakout success of former Tubeway Army singer Gary Numan with his debut #1 solo single ‘Cars’. Electronic music took over the charts during the early 80s, Duran Duran’s ‘Planet Earth’ and Japan’s ‘Quite Life’ filled our soundwaves alongside tracks such as ‘Vienna’, ‘Tainted Love’, ‘Together In Electric Dreams’, ‘Never Ending Story’ and The Human League’s breakthrough single ‘The Sound Of The Crowd’. Plus Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s ‘Enola Gay’ and Paul Hardcastle’s ‘19’ gave voice to powerful social statements.

Indie pop tracks such as Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ and The Cure’s ‘The Walk’ became key in the 80s alternate scene. Other massive hits included on the album which have become radio staples include a-ha’s ‘Take On Me’, Visage’s ‘Fade To Grey’ and Heaven 17’s ‘Temptation’.

Transport yourself to the dance-floor as NOW That’s What I Call Electronic celebrates huge dance-pop records ‘I Feel For You’ by Chaka Khan and ‘Let The Music Play’ by Shannon, both of which pushed the genre boundaries by fusing electro, Hi-NRG and rap. Freeez’s ‘I.O.U.’, Man 2 Man’s ‘Male Stripper’ and ‘Fascinated’ by Company B sit alongside extended versions of dance classics including the 12” version of Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’, Dead Or Alive’s ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’ and the original ‘Blue Monday’ by New Order which lead the way in 12” single sales.

Of course, we found room for ABBA’s ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’ the synth riff from which was sampled so effectively in Madonna’s 2005 single ‘Hung Up’. NOW That’s What I Call Electronic is the perfect collector’s item and gift for any lover of dance music.
