Technodelic is the fifth studio album by Yellow Magic Orchestra, released in 1981. The album is notable for its experimental and heavy use of digital samplers which were not commonly used until the mid-to-late 1980s, resulting in a more minimalist sound compared to their previous work. It is considered the first released album to feature mostly samples and loops, influencing the heavy use of sampling and looping in popular music

By releasing BGM and Technodelic in one year, YMO made a shift happen in Pop music. Technodelic is far more experimental than previous albums, and at the same time their 5th album ismore minimalistic and full of Funk and Soul. YMO remained remarkably adept at inventing new ways of looking at compositions and creating a whole new music scene at the same time: Dance. 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

The highlight of YMO (Yellow Magic Orchestra), introduced by their 1981 BGM album.

YMO - Xoo Multiplies ( 80 179mb). This album has had a confusing array of releases, well record company's what do you expect ? But as such its a good album, plenty to enjoy. I had a hard time chosing between Technodelic and BGM i like both albums very much, ive chosen Technodelic as its a little more adventurous- specialy vocally and i think its a classic which productionwise lacks just that edge which would have completely raised it above everything else ( no chance it will ever get a full kling klang treatment), that said.
