Initiation Tape - Part One is the fourth studio album by American electronic musician Vektroid under her New Dreams Ltd. alias.[1] The album has mixed reviews[2][3] but is still popular among Vektroid fans. The album was reissued in 2014 as Initiation Tape: Isle of Avalon Edition, featuring a different tracklist as well as new artwork (an image of the 'King Corner Suite' at the ANA InterContinental Hotel located in Minato, Tokyo, Japan[4]). This version was uploaded to Vektroid's Bandcamp page, however it has since been removed.[5] The album samples music from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.[6][7]
