Ok, I’m going back in time to 1997 for what many consider one of the very first electro-clash tracks called, “Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass” by I-F.
Here is a little background of I-F via wikipedia:
I-F (short for Inter-Ference; real name Ferenc E. van der Sluijs) is a producer and DJ based in The Hague, The Netherlands. He is a former member of the Dutch electro pioneers Unit Moebius. In 1997 he produced the track “Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass”, which became a huge underground dance hit and is often credited the earliest example of Electroclash, although I-F himself has been of critical interest in the Electroclash scene.

From one of my favorite albums of 2005, “Love Songs of the Hanging Gardens”, comes the track, “Ashamed of Myself”. This whole album was on heavy rotation on my computer for months.

Seems to be 80’s week, so I though I might as well add this little ditty from Calvin Harris.

80’s syths, vocoders, and a funky bass make up the core of this track.

Voom Voom is Peter Kruder from Kruder & Dorfmeister fame, Roland Appel (Fauna Flash, Truby Trio), and Christian Prommer. This track has a deep groove with an expansive bass that will pummel any dance floor.
