Matthew Collin - Dream Machines: Electronic Music in Britain from Doctor Who to Acid House - (Hardback Book)

An expansive and illuminating account of the development of electronic music in the UK, told with passionate enthusiasm by the critically-acclaimed author of Altered State and Rave On.

Dream Machines tracks the music’s evolution from early avant-garde experiments after World War Two through psychedelia, art-rock and synthpop to electronic dance music, sampling and the techno era. As well as profiling the sonic futurists who pioneered new styles, it documents the scenes and underground movements that built Britain’s thrillingly diverse electronic music culture in its formative decades.

Based on interviews with key players and a wealth of in-depth research, Dream Machines explores genres as diverse as space rock, electro-pop, ambient, dub, industrial music, prog, electro, hip-hop, hi-NRG and house, highlighting how developments in British electronic music were shaped by changes in society as well as technological advances.

Matthew Collin has been writing about electronic dance music culture for over three decades. His critically-acclaimed books include Altered State and Rave On. He has written for many newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Observer, The Wire & Mojo.
