Datassette - GUI Spew

from by Various



Datassette has been releasing his own brand of synth-heavy emotive electro and mangled funk on and off since 2001, releasing EPs and Albums starting off from CDRs and netlabels through to a range of indie labels such as Ai Records and MinimalRome. He's also been hired as remixer for the likes of Röyksopp, Altern-8, Al Tourettes, and inexplicably, stadium-indie whingers White Lies.

In the last few years, his work has become more obviously influenced by a worryingly large ever-growing collection of (mostly awful) synth library music from the beloved analogue heyday of 1971-1988, highlights of which can be heard in his popular BusinessFunk series of mixes, available from his website. ( may cause mild grinning).

His latest EP 'People Without Mouths' can be previewed here:

Datassette also curates a site concentrating on mixes intended for listening while... concentrating: with contributions from Com Truise among other library music, drone, and synthwave aficionados.

He is perhaps best known for the 2008 work 'Stop The Message' as Datashat, which put the grandmaster flash acapella from 'The Message' processed through a vocoder up against the Italodisco classic 'Stop' by BWH with floor-smashing results ( ), and for the 2005 remix of 'Running Up That Hill' ( ).
