Electroclash Style Overview
Electroclash Music Description
Electroclash fuses electro, techno, synth-pop, new wave, punk and performance art. Early examples of the style include Miss Kittin & The Hacker's Champagne! E.P. and I-f's "Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass". DJ Larry Tee, who coined the term, and DJ Hell, whose International Deejay Gigolo Records label was home to many of the acts, helped create a cohesive scene in the early 2000s. The term is particularly associated with acts such as Miss Kittin & The Hacker, Fischerspooner, Tiga, and Goldfrapp. Towards the middle of the 2000s, elements of the sound became popular in mainstream music with artists such as Madonna and Kylie Minogue releasing material with an electroclash sound.
