Electronic System :: Skylab (1974)

Space is the place. Speaking of cinematic in scope, enter "Skylab", released in 1974 via the Belgium group Electronic System's lp, Tchip.Tchip (Vol. 3). A fourteen and half minute instrumental glide that renders the rest of the album disposable, "Skylab" sits confidently as the final entry of side B.

While the preceding tracks come off as novelty Moog synthesizer exercises, "Skylab" is anything but. Moody, nuanced and atmospheric, the composition evokes an era-appropriate futurism. Dim . . .
