electro is dead.

the other day i was checking out bigstereo and came across their gameboy/gamegirl feature. the track really got me excited and so i went straight to miami horror who produced the track. the 'electro is dead' quote on his profile made me shake my head - until the myspace player got going. imagine daft punk rolling with prince. get ready for heavy banging drums and ecstatic chords covering thick layers of synth, making way for mindbending guitar solos and tons of funk, in short: miami horror is sharper than axel foley's new haircut. and even though the new justice single leaked on the very same day, i couldn't stop listening to "don't be on with her". that night, electro was dead.

when asked about who has influenced his music he named prince, early madonna, joy division, italo disco, giorgio moroder and the devil. a full-length with all new tracks is currently in the works, get ready for "both a pop 80's disco adventure and musical journey through a range of lost epic 80's styles, with some songs feeling reminiscent of movie soundtracks". i can't wait, this 20-year old australian is the freshest thing i've heard in ages.

i am more than excited to have these tunes as exclusive firsts on discodust:

miami horror - don't be on with her
stardust - music sounds better with you (miami horror remix)
