8 Tracks: Of Intergalactic Voyage with Horse Meat Disco

Catch Jim and James at Patterns on NYE.

For a long time Horse Meat Disco roamed beneath the surface, an underground party collective moving from space to space with a dedicated crowd of passionate dancers and lovers. They had been championed and praised by some of the most pivotal figures in dance, disco and electronic music but were still relatively unheard of beyond a local circuit. 

Given all of the above it is now absolutely delightful to observe the evolution and transformation of the collective who are now busier than ever and have become a staple outfit amidst not only British but world wide club culture. Their remarkable ability to draw for the unexpected, to blend the alternative and reimagine the present has placed them at the forefront of disco. However, this is not to say that they remain a one stop shop - ask anyone who has watched them play and they will tell you that they have the capability to take you upon a cosmic voyage far beyond the realms of the expected. 

On New Year's Eve James and Jim of HMD will play at Patterns in Brighton, along with Ross from Friends (DJ set) and Patterns’ residents for what promises to be a special evening. The bells will ring and the dancers will follow. We invited the duo to take us through eight tracks...

Girogio Moroder - Battlestar Galactica

From the man who gave us ‘I Feel Love’. The ultimate in sci fi/futuristic sounds from the disco era is his take on one of my all time favourite sci fi tv shows from when I was a kid. Disco really came of age post the release of the first Star Wars film. The cannon of disco is littered with references and influences from the boom in science fiction films spurred on by the overwhelming success of Star Wars. In this clip, which features on the first side of the LP, is one of Giorgio’s best pieces in my opinion. Evolution.
