you just love compilations? Oh well, I agree, most compilations
nowadays aren't quite what you'd call tremendously entertaining:
more-of-the-same, broken promises, label-samplers in disguise
and whatnot... digital boredom, generally; circular, silver irrelevance.
But do you know what the coolest thing about running a label is?
If you are an image neurotic music lover on a mission, like some
people here at STROBELIGHT are, you may have already guessed:
that you can pester the world with your own personal tastes, legally,
and on a large scale. Don't tell me that's not a good thing. There
you go, thank you. You're just lucky that we've got such fabulous
taste in music...
1 is just the start of a series of healthy sonic endorphin kicks
from the most exciting parts of the music spectrum where the concept
of age has no meaning and personal preference is the only criterion
(apart from, well, funds, obviously). Sensational songs which,
according to us and black band t-shirts (because they're always
right), deserve to get more attention. STROBELIGHTS are selections
of the stuff that keeps our clocks ticking, although, admittedly,
this one here is of considerable stylistic narrowness. But it's
my first opportunity of this type after half a lifetime of preparation,
so to speak, some sort of teenage dream coming true in the end,
so you'll forgive me for simply having to fill it with as much
of what is subjectively The Cool Stuff as I possibly could...
and this list is by no means exhaustive. But it shouts "this
is the sort of music I demand to hear in clubs!"
together well-known and less-known genre smashers shall be the
general idea of the STROBELIGHTS series, and the upcoming volumes
may very well be more varied in terms of musical styles. Define
'genre' then, I hear you scream... don't bother, it's all essential
stuff. But it says somewhere on the flyers...
for the meantime:GOFF,
DEATHROCK & BATCAVE GALORE... admit it, this list is simply
