Dark Disco / Electro Noir mix (Part 1)

Dark Disco / Electro Noir mix (Part 1)


About the show

Playing tracks by

The Sisters of Transistors, Fad Gadget, Peter Gabriel, Maethelvin, David Shrigley and more.

Dark electro / Disco noir is what I call a certain type of music referencing or sampling certain horror movie soundtracks from Goblin to John Carpenter that’s popped up recently in certain electro / electro house quarters, & it’s a music that I can connect to for several reasons, it’s dark & broody & seems to fit the state of the nation at the moment (& I also love the music of those 70s & 80s horror movies).

It seems like a lot of new bands from the French (Zombie Zombie, NOTe Found, daRoc, Justice, Maesthelvin, Mustard Pimp) to the British (Padded Cell, Emperor Machine, Does It Offend You, Yeah? and Sisters of Transistors) and even further outposts (Rico Tubbs, Tsk Tsk, Presets, Supermayer) have a common basis to me, so this is also a manifesto of sorts linking these bands together with older & less obvious inspirations (or just my guilty pleasures!) such as Fad Gadget, David Shrigley, Meat Beat Manifesto & Peter Gabriel.
