I’ve been meaning to do a new Dark Electro / Disco Noir mix since I did the last one 3 years ago (was it really that long?).

As I’ve gotten more into dubstep, psych garage and surf oddities this is also now reflected in this late edition of Disco Noir 2 – it also has rock, dubstep, doowop, dnb, mashups (including a few from the excellent new Texas Chainsaw Mashacre album), and of course dark and cheesy disco and electro. Big love and thanks goes to them and also Mr Fab via WFMU 365 Days Project for his Disco Sickness compilation which donated a few horrible disco tracks from hell….and I’m guessing quite a few of the spoken word bits are from either of them too!
