Electric Youth - Runaway

Old-school italo-disco couple Electric Youth just dropped their newest hit "Runaway" via Secretly Canadian. "Runaway" is from Electric Youth's debut album INNERWORLD scheduled for release on 30/09/14. The track features typical Electric Youth "feel-good" modular synths, and their signature, eerily piercing vocals grâce à  Bronwyn.

Tesla Boy- Strong- Track Premiere July 2014

One of Disco Unchained's original favorites, Tesla Boy, just released their brand new single, "Strong". Tesla Boy's last album, "Dream Machine" really set a high standard for them and its great to know they haven't lost it. Anton Sevidov's vocals, as usual, are hauntingly beautiful and piercingly poignant. "Strong" features a highly melodic synthline and  kick-ass guitar riffs, basically the kind of sound you expect from a band as progressive and original as Tesla Boy. Special props to Mr. Sevidov for his vocals because they made our day! Be on the look out for new stuff from Tesla Boy in the future as well... They have a lot of surprises coming!

Östberg - Summer- Disco Unchained Track Premiere!

The Norway based nu-disco prodigy Östberg has got us hooked. No, seriously, it's physically hard trying to stop playing his music. His last premiere at Disco Unchained was his remix of Gold Spectacles' "Steal You Away", and though that track was enough to get you feel the kind vibes Östberg has, his other track, "Summer" more completely captures his 'sound' and his sharp, stinging originality. 

"Summer" has, within 30 minutes or so, become a Disco Unchained summer essential, along with Östberg's other  Gold Spectacles remix. "Summer" features a french-house sound only comparable to that one of our all-favorite sampled-funk producers; Vanguard. Östberg has swept us off our feet, and it's almost a crime that this man has only a few thousand plays. Its up to you, the connoisseurs of synth and independent music culture, to ensure that some justice is served. Be sure to follow Östberg here, and be sure to really take a listen to, what we consider, his greatest work produced, below!
