The Death Disco

One of the darkest Electro Disco tracks I have heard has landed in my inbox. This is just the B-side to a new Discodeine release from the Dirty Soundsystem crew and it wipes the (dance) floor with the much more pedestrian Electro House of 'Joystick' found on the A-side. Described as music for fans of Dario Argento and Goblin, it utilises bass synths so dark and nasty it is what Radioactive Man would sound like if he ever made a Disco record. Be Afraid.

And the reason it's called Homo-Compatible?

"Male electronic duos always convey a load of queer eroticism, latent (Silver Apples, Ralf & Florian) or assumed (Softcell, Pet Shop Boys).
For their love of the moustache, DISCODEINE was almost named "Homo compatible". But Benjamin and Cedric still fall for epilated ladies."

Discodeine - Homo-Compatible // DLL 011

Another slice of tripped out druggy Techno has also just been released from the same stable. Photonz are two Portuguese producers that describe their sound thus... "Think Kristof Komeda, Kevin Shields, Throbbing Gristle"

Photonz - Trembler (Discodeine Mix) // DLL 010

Trembler should be out by now, The new Discodeine will be out mid June. Both limited to 1000 vinyl copies.

Labels: , ,

I always had that silent association with male electronic duos and something queer.
Thank you for this! (I'm a homo and a fan of Argento) (:
The mirror-skull is by Peter Pan Speedrock...
Can you send me the link for the trembler remix please ?
Thanks for sharing.
