So, we think we have found the one invention that will finally convince all our friends with questionable hygiene to finally put their grubby ways to an end. With its red, green and blue LED lights, the Underwater Disco Lightshow guarantees to make a flickering disco out of any bath. Unfortunately, it’ll probably be the […]

Star Wars French ballet disco

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Tuesday 1 May 2012

Not quite Star Wars, not quite French, not quite ballet, and not quite disco. Bet you never knew Darth Vadar and 3PO ever had a feud. Or used The Force to play scissors, paper, stone. Warning: you’ll need to have a very high threshold for silliness to enjoy this without a hint of irony.

By Andy in New Trends on Friday 12 March 2010

We’re not shy about our love of all things 80s, and Goldfrapp’s Rocket clip has taken us right back to a cloudy pastel world of big hair, synth optimism and glittering disco. We might just stay here for a while. Who’s in?

Heart music

The Epi-Cure Reader Find

By The Epi-Cure in New Trends on Wednesday 1 July 2009

Most of us know eating a balanced diet helps maintain a healthy heart, and that there’s nothing better than a romantic ballad to nourish blossoming love. But did you know blasting Beethoven might also help to keep your cardiovascular system in tune? New research suggests that music can directly trigger physiological changes that modulate blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration. I’m definitely breathless after listening to Cyndi Lauper’s I Drove All Night, but that might be from dancing my rigorous jazz ballet routine, not necessarily from the emotion it engenders.

Lindstrom

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in New Music on Sunday 11 January 2009

Lindstrom, the man who single-handedly coined the term ‘minimal space-disco’ (well, perhaps nudged in the right direction by Orbital et al), recently released a new, rather ambitious, album, Where You Go I Go Too. Weaving between ambient trance and breakbeat-flecked disco, the producer responsible for the mesmerizing reworking of that tune we all secretly love, […]

Andy from Chicken Lips talks about The Emperor Machine

Michaella Solar-March Reader Find

By Michaella Solar-March in New Music on Monday 8 December 2008

We checked in with Andy Meecham, one half of Staffordshire duo Chicken Lips, about his latest side project, The Emperor Machine and why he prefers using vintage equipment wherever he can: ‘I like the feel and touch of vintage equipment — if that doesn’t sound weird. I like the hands-on approach and get a lot of inspiration from buying new, old vintage equipment. I have nothing against computer software — it is getting to the stage now where you can’t tell the difference — but for me, it’s just not the way I prefer to work’.

By Zolton in Cool Websites on Friday 17 October 2008

What’s not to love? Moby told us this recently about the Donna Summer disco classic, I Feel Love: ‘This is the best electronic club song ever recorded. It breaks my heart to know that I’ll never write anything as good as I Feel Love. I always play it when I DJ, though not the remixes; […]

Aeroplane are Ital-disco

Michaella Solar-March Reader Find

By Michaella Solar-March in New Music on Tuesday 19 August 2008

How many bands can you name who’ve formed over drunken conversations at parties? Add another to the list. Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano of Belgian duo Aeroplane met around six years ago at a party, and decided to work together after discovering a shared appreciation for 60s and 70s psychedelic pop, Fleetwood Mac, Brian Wilson and 80s synth pop pioneers Brian Eno and Giorgio Moroder. ‘At the beginning Vito made me listen to the demos which he made and I found it very interesting!’, Fasano says. ‘I wanted to do disco-rock-electro music with my influences, and after several working years, we both found our own sound’.

The Shakes’ Sister self-doubt

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Friday 12 October 2007

Oh man, close your eyes if you will and transport yourself to a place far, far away; where disco is in, polyester is up, and everyone bows long and deep to the gravitational pull of the almighty afro. Sister Self-Doubt by The Shakes takes me there. It takes me front and centre, feeling that slippery, […]
