New Shy Child track & video

Shy Child have just débuted the video for ‘Disconnected’, the first single from their forthcoming album ‘Liquid Love’ and is one of the most Poppy tracks thy have done to date, although still as noisy as you’d expect from Shy Child there is some Nu-disco creeping into their Indie-Electro!

when the single drops expect reMixes from Ocelot, Moscow, Shuttle and Anoraak!!! That should be a really sweet single!

Dada Life get beeped

DadaLife

Swedish duo Dada Life, who are currently touring with Tiësto off the back of their début album ‘Just do The Dada’, are gearing up for the release of their next single ‘Let’s Get’ Beeped Tonight’ on Big & Dirty.

The single will feature reMixes from Don Rimini, Mustard Pimp and Tiësto himself and it’s a fun, analog, anthem in the way only Scandinavians can do!

Music Go Music & Fred Falke

MusicGoMusic

Oh man, this is one smooth Nu-Disco jam! The always quality Fred Falke has brought the funk to LA avant-garde popsters Music Go Music.

Clocking in at just over eight minutes it’s an epic, funky, electronic journey (and mildly shorter than the original!) that dips and peaks in all the right places.

The Vault: Creaking open to bring you some Halloween Ministry!

The Vault: The classics of Electronic Music. The influential and the groundbreaking. The pioneering and the music we grew up on…

Ministry

Happy Halloween readers!

Just a quick one today, but we couldn’t really let Halloween slip by without posting this gem could we?

You may know who Ministry are; black dreads, long beards, Metal guitars, shouty vocals, skulls on mic stands etc…,  basically a walking Metal cliché. Things weren’t always the case!

1981 to 1984 Ministry were actually a really good SynthPop band, probably one of the best the US has ever produced Releasing a handful of 12”s on Wax Trax! Records culminating with the album ‘With Sympathy’ on Arista Records, Al Jourgensen (above; later to sport black dreads, a cowboy hat and a heroin addiction) produced some fantastic, emotional and groove laden New Wave music. With 1986’s ‘Twitch’ album Ministry discovered Industrial music, and it was still all good. ‘Twitch’ is a well crafted, harsh, electronic record. Even 1998’s ‘Land Of Rape And Honey’ has some good tracks on it, although it’s standing at the top of (if not actually sliding down) the slippery slope of mediocre rock music.

Ministry’s career, from1989 onwards, is just a decent into stereotypical Heavy Metal with any originality or innovation stripped from the mix. In a laughable attempt to sound ‘hard’ Al Jourgensen has disowned his early recordings as “…an abortion”.

Such a pity…such talent gone to waste…

Anyway, it’s the ‘season of the witch’ and all that, so get your listening gear ‘round Ministry’s classic ‘Everyday (Is Halloween)’, a brilliant poppy disco track, and imagine the band that could have been…
