Dark disco mixes by Von Schwartz
Over recent years, though, a new sound has emerged, evolved, and taken hold. It’s one that is too dystopian to be called disco, too melancholic for house, and too musical to be techno. It’s called dark disco, and it’s music for strobe lights and smoke machines rather than mirror balls and lasers. It’s rugged and raw, with oriental melodies and chugging grooves, tobacco-stained synths and angular riffs that appeal to biker boys and goth girls.
