"Tangent 2002: Disco Nouveau is a compendium of the Robot Disco sound as seen through the eyes of contemporary electronic musicians. The Disco in question, or 'Disko' as it is often referred to, is the electronic dance music from the late 1970's and early 1980's spawned from the icy textures and synthesized basslines of Giorgio Moroder ('I Feel Love'...). This music harkens back to an era of colorful futurism encompassing the boom of video game culture and also perhaps the last great visual futurist agenda that has succeeded in changing our commercial landscape, from font types to fashion. Visions of both high optimism coupled with the hope/fear of a computerized tomorrow, define an era that will be remembered for excess and vanity, of innovation and dream-like plasticity." Artists include: Mat-101, Adult, Legowelt, Solvent, Daniel Wang, Charles Manier, Ectomorph, I-F feat. Nancy Fortune, DMX Krew, Perspects, Lowfish, Susumu Yokota, Hong Kong Counterfeit, Memory Boy. All exclusive tracks specially commissioned for this project. 2nd pressing in digipak cover.
