1 - INTERSTELLAR FUNK
- ARTIFICIAL DANCERS - WAVES OF SYNTH - (LP)
Birthed at the turn of the 80s, synth and wave music has remained a constant force over the last four decades, with a recent spike in interest in the sound offering further proof of its timeless, out-of-this-world quality. Its against this backdrop that Dutch DJ Interstellar Funk presents his celebration of the style, "Artificial Dancers - Waves of Synth".A bumper compilation bristling with obscure and hard-to-find gems, the set sees the Artificial Dance label founder joining the dots between synthesizer and drum machine-driven tracks in a variety of subtly different styles. Its the result of hundreds of hours spent digging through dusty old records, tapes, and the Bandcamp accounts of DIY musicians who have been active since the sounds first boom in the early 1980s.The 11-track set draws on tracks made and released at different times over the last 40 years, with the earliest cut committed to tape in 1978 and the most recent in 2018. While the tracks date from the 80s, 90s, noughties and 2010s, the showcased cuts are united by a primitive but futuristic quality that makes dating them difficult. In many cases, its hard to tell which tracks were made in the early 1980s and which were conjured up in 21st century studios.
