Hereâ€™s the details in the compilerâ€™s own wordsâ€¦
Project History: The 45 Tribute started as an idea of a member of the Elektron-Users.com site last October. Several people from the community wanted to pay homage to Daniel and his genius. We then reached out beyond the Elektron-Users community and asked many well-known artists to participate. With Elektron's blessing and the generosity of the artists, we were able to make 45 Tribute â€“ For Daniel Hansson a reality.
Song Selection: Many of the established artists were asked if they wanted to be a part of our project. Additional songs were submitted from the Elektron user community. We received so many songs that we established a panel to vote on which ones should be included in the release. Since we received so many submissions, we created the 'Free Songs' section.
Name Significance: The name of the compilation is inspired by Daniel's old C64 demo group called Zone 45. Apart from that, it was also his favorite number.
