Yesterday, I rediscovered my stash of Electromancer music.. So I burned the best of it onto an MP3 CD and bunged it in the car JVC.
Today, I’ve been whizzing around town to the sound of Datafreq, Vic Twenty and Zaibatsu. (these are the guys who inspired me to have a go myself), and Butterfly Messiah, DJ Elektro, the odd bit of Global Citizen, 101 Music, Xtro, and LOADS more.
Back in the days of Electromancer.Com, I was massively impressed and inspired by an artist called DATAFREQ, who posted several tracks: DISKOPHONIC, SILHOUETTE CITY, DER KOMISSAR, and I LIKE JAPANESE GIRLS. Silhouette City is in the style of John Foxx.. DISKOPHONIC is an excellent romper stomper of a track..
I was unable to find out anything about them at the time, and I could find NOTHING on the web.
Nobody I raved at on Electromancer seemed that impressed by them.
Today, purely by chance, I stumbled across a video on Youtube by DATAFREQ. A web search threw up LOADS of hits. And there they were, the three tracks, and MORE.
DATAFREQ turns out to be one guy in CANADA called Dave Rout. Check out what I’m on about by checking out DATAFREQ on last.fm.
