Dorothy - designers of great prints such as The World Song Map and The Barometer of Popular Music - have released a new and improved edition of their bestselling Electric Love Blueprint. The print, which maps out the history and evolution of electronic music on to the circuit board of a Theremin - one of the world’s first electronic musical instruments - now includes over 250 inventors, innovators, composers and musicians who have been pivotal to the evolution of electronic music.

The print works its way through electronic genres, from the obscure to the better known, traversing through Krautrock (Kraftwerk, Can, Tangerine Dream and Faust), Synthpop (Human League, Depeche Mode) and Electronica (New Order, Massive Attack, LCD Sound System).

40 new names have been added to the print including both some musical omissions (John Carpenter and OMD), and a slew of contemporary artists such as FKA Twigs, Oneohtrix Point Never, Mount Kimbie, Floating Points and Arca.

The print is metallic silver screen on 120gsm uncoated paper, measures 60 x 80cm and will set you back £35. They also have a Hip-Hop Love Blueprint and an Alternative Love Blueprint if electronic music isn’t your thing.  

But if it is? Get ready to have your Electronic Dreams come true.
