1981 was a groundbreaking year for the music industry. By releasing BGMand Technodelic in one year, YMO made a shift happen in Pop music. YMO introduced a new way of using samples and loops by cutting sound bites into fragments and reprogramming them with newly available computer technology.
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.
