Concrete Disco make live electronic music. Playing an incendiary and spontaneous show that is captivating audiences across the country and beyond, the band bring the excitement and expressive energy of a live band to dance music.
The band’s sound is a party soundtrack with a darker edge. Combining driving drums, deep basslines and ethereal textures with crunching guitars, catchy vocals and glitchy mashups the trio have spawned the mutant offspring of Prodigy, Justice, Nirvana and Aphex Twin. They have taken their show to venues such as Glade Festival, The Nest and The Roundhouse and supported Deadmau5, Modestep, Plump DJs, Beardyman and Zane Lowe along the way.
In their former incarnation as Toxic Funk Berry, the three-piece took the Sky1 TV show “Must Be the Music” by storm, impressing Dizzee Rascal along the way before their vitriolic live semi-final performance (and Dom’s drum face) proved too much for Sunday night primetime audiences. They eventually lost out to an 11-year-old harpist.
Emerging from their foray into the whirlwind underworld of reality TV, the band sensed the need for a fresh start and out of the ashes of Toxic Funk Berry was forged Concrete Disco.
Continuing to play their high-octane live shows, the threesome have built up a dedicated following whilst working on capturing the energy of their performances in the studio.
Two singles released in 2012 (the second of which, Sounds of the Void, was described by Eddy Temple-Morris as “...sublime” when played on his XFM radio show) gave the first taste of the forthcoming debut album “Work for your Living, Play for your Life” set for release in 2013. Released as two full length albums, one side will feature the band’s original material and numerous guests providing vocals alongside their own. The other will be given away as a free download and will take in re-workings of their own tunes mashed up with pop and hip-hop vocals. Look out for Concrete Disco at festivals this summer.
