Steve Albini Vs Electronic Dance Music (EDM)
“The electronic music I liked was radical and different, shit like the White Noise, Xenakis, Suicide, Kraftwerk, and the earliest stuff form Cabaret Voltaire, SPK and DAF. When that scene and those people got co-opted by dance/club music I felt like we’d lost a war.
I detest club culture as deeply as I detest anything on earth. So I am against what you’re into, and an enemy of where you come from”. (TheQuietus)
Big Black legend and alternative rock uber-producer/ deity Steve Albini grants permission to XL electronic producer Powell to use a spoken word sample of his for Powell’s new single ‘Insomniac’.
