Tangent 2002: Disco Nouveau

With Disco Nouveau, the nÜ-electro movement—also called electrocrash and electroclash—has yet another reason to be cheerful.

With Disco Nouveau, the nü-electro movement—also called electrocrash and electroclash—has yet another reason to be cheerful. The robust Disco Nouveau, from Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Ghostly International, brings together many notable acts, including Memory Boy (aka John Selway), Lowfish (aka Greg de Rocher), Ectomorph (aka Brendan Gillen & Gerald), and Solvent (aka Jason Amm). Equal parts Italo-disco and Detroit techno, Disco Nouveau features brand-new music from the likes of the U.K.'s DMX Krew ("Make Me"), Japan's Susumu Yokota ("Re: Disco"), and Michigan's Adult ("Nite Life"). Fans of Giorgio Moroder, Derrick May, Carl Craig, and Gazebo will find much to admire here. Racked by, among others, Caroline.—MP
