An air of mystery seems to surround electronic South African newcomers “Dahl Hates Disco”
Is it a concept? A music collective? An experiment of sorts? Perhaps. For now, nobody really knows.
In mid 2016 they released their debut single “Endless Motion” (Come With Me). Despite a lack of social media presence and shunning radio interviews, the single ended up being charted/playlisted on 35 SA radio stations , Top 100 SA Shazams, music video on MTV, Trace, M-net, Club 808 and multiple reviews in local and international music blogs.
Their debut EP Some People is finally ready (itunes) and contains 4 original tracks and two remixes by internationally renowned producers Abicah Soul (Chicago), Cuebur (Jhb) & UPZ (Jhb). Soundcloud Preview
In their debut EP, Dahl Hates Disco explore various sub genres within the house music soundscape including pop-melodic house, afro house, and indie-house. Lyrically, they seek to avoids the cliché and mundane, and cover an array of topics touching on humanity’s inner search whilst providing a take on social commentary, whilst leaving the overall message universal and open to the listener’s interpretation, as art should be. Their next single is “So Long” which combines afro- centric infuenced house music production with moody pop-indie vocals reminiscent of bands like Empire of the Sun.
