My Top 10 Tracks: Slave Republic

My Top 10 Tracks: Slave Republic

Slave Republic are a German synth/new-wave band whose début album Electric One was recently released on Accession Records, home to futurepop artists Assemblage 23 and SITD.  I really liked the album, it’s full of catchy songs and it put me in mind of IAMX and Duran Duran at their best. Slave Republic have worked with the likes of Olaf Wollschläger (And One, Paradise Lost) and Haujobb and are shortly going on tour with De/Vision [...]

Co-founder DJ Electric Dream and guests host the night, featuring live performances from many of the hottest up-and-coming synth bands. I asked Electric Dream for her Top 10 favourite tracks. She decided to [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: I Monster

My Top 10 Tracks: I Monster

I Monster are Sheffield-based duo Dean Honer (All Seeing I) and Jarrod Gosling. They describe their sound as “pop, psychedelic, rock, other stuff” where “other stuff” might include Vaudeville, trip-hop, jazz, R&B, and strange electronica from the fifth dimension. I Monster’s third album A Dense Swarm Of Ancient Stars was my favourite album of 2009 — a truly brilliant release, it’s one of those [...]

My Top 10 Tracks: Electro Arc

Electro Arc is an independent German label specializing in industrial dance and oldschool EBM (Electronic Body Music). They were featured on this blog last year and since then label boss Intrendent has been busy putting out more of Electro Arc’s showcase compilations, as well releasing artist albums such as the brilliant Brutpop from First Aid 4 Souls. I asked Intrendent what his ten favourite tracks were: here’s his list.
My Top 10 Tracks: Planet Earth Rock and Roll

My Top 10 Tracks: Planet Earth Rock and Roll

Planet Earth Rock and Roll is an online fortnightly radio show playing 60s and 70s psychedelic rock, progressive rock, folk, acid and other related cosmic vibrations. DJ Jake King (aka drawkward) hosts the show on my local radio station, Leith FM. Jake’s musical knowledge of 60s and 70s music is encyclopedic, and his velvety voice is perfectly matched to the show’s style. I asked Jake to let me know his Top 10 tracks, with a [...]

Northern Kind are Sarah Heeley and Matt Culpin, a synthpop duo who’ve worked with oldschool greats like Alan Wilder, Kajagoogoo, and Simon Heyworth. Regular readers of this blog will know I’m a massive fan of this band: I rated Northern Kind’s second album WIRED as my favourite synthpop release of 2009. Northern Kind write and produce some of the finest electro around at the moment, and their live shows are guaranteed to get [...]

My Top 10 Tracks: Hyperbubble

My Top 10 Tracks: Hyperbubble

Hyperbubble are Jess and Jeff, a fun synthesizer couple from Texas. Their blend of synthpop is quirky bubblegum electro-pop with a great sense of humor (think Freezepop, Vic Twenty, S.P.O.C.K or Schmoof). I  saw them live on their recent European tour and had a blast: they put on a fantastic show with boundless energy. I urge any fan of synthpop to check them out! Hyperbubble’s third album Candy Apple Daydreams was recently released [...]
