All That Glitters is Noisy Treasure
Fool’s Gold Records, known for their dirty, cut-up, fidgety electro artists, recently signed Atlanta-based Treasure Fingers. Tomorrow, May 15th, Treasure Fingers teams up with rising bloghouse master Kill The Noise for the “School’s Out Forever Tour” at Wrongbar, courtesy of the boys at Dopplehertz. Plus there is the added treat of a DJ set from local favourite Vaneska.
Which reminds us, somebody really needs to make some clearer subgenres for electro. From the gritty, chopped, stuttered sounds of “fidget house” (see Jesse Rose, Bryan Cox), the bells and rolling basslines of “jump-up electro” (see Stupid Fresh, Ed Kane), and the thumping, clean, bass-heavy noises in “electro house” (see Hatiras, DJ Dan, Donald Glaude), there is no shortage of confusion about what electro is, exactly. The only thing that is clear is that it has quickly become the sound of the era, and will likely dominate dance music for a long time. House music has somehow sneaked back in to popular culture.
