Trending Now

If you liked Kraftwerk and D.A.F., early Yello, Soft Cell and Human League, then you’ll love what the International Deejay Gigolos, Disko B and City Rockers labels have been unleashing these past few years in the name of electroclash?essentially, the primitive pulse of early-’80s Swiss, German and UK synth-pop with the steel phallus of late-’80s Belgian New Beat, encased in a shiny 21stcentury carapace.

The fourth in the Dr Lektroluv series features artists familiar to fans of the aforementioned imprints’ recent output. These range from Bangkok Impact (23-year-old Finnish computer whizz Sami Luski) and the Mysterymen, whose “Electromode” is bassgasmic nitro-deluxe house, to dawn-of-electro types such as original sleazetronicists Neon Judgement and this season’s digital disco favourites, Liaisons Dangereuses, and their ubiquitous “Peut Etre… Pas”.
