Turbo Drive presents
Dance With The Dead
Turbo Drive is a night of new music that pays tribute to the retro-futuristic synth sounds of the 80s. Think Blade Runner meets Miami Vice. Did you like the soundtrack to the movie Drive? We can't get enough of that. Fast Cars, neon lights, and sometimes, Robocop.
Featuring artists like: Kavinsky, Cut Copy, Barretso, Lazerhawk, Com Truise, Neon Indian, Chromatics, College, Anoraak, Electric Youth, Miami Nights 1984, 80's Stallone, Tesla Boy, DVAS, Futurecop!, The Outrunners, FM Attack, Flashworx, Mitch Murder, Noir Deco, Garth Knight, Power Glove, Protector 101 and much more!
Essentially, Dance With The Dead produce heavy electronic music with an emphasis on big riffs, arpeggiated synths and no vocals. The band have a remarkable talent for producing heavy songs with simple, catchy hooks. 'Invader', taken from the band's third album Near Dark is an excellent example of the band's formula; featuring soaring guitar solos and a simple, powerful lead riff. A powerful band with a strong formula and dedicated mindset, Dance With The Dead have already carved out a massive fanbase over three short years. The future is very bright for this electronic duo.
Coming quickly on the heels of the retro scene's overlords, GosT's unique blend of retro horror has finally hit full stride in his aggressively beautiful debut album. Slicing bass grooves as sharp-as-a-machete, wonderfully evolving atmospheres, and smooth analog melodies that may even convince the shyest kids to dance. This is part slasher film, part monster movie, part late-night danceclub desperation - with equal amounts of influence from 1980s horror films, 1990s black metal, and a touch of 2000s club electro - sometimes it allows you to breathe, sometimes it chokes you to death.
