The final two artists announced!

electriXmas is delighted to at last be able to announce the final artists for this years lineup!
Yes, you read that right – not just one, but two bands! So this year you’ll be getting a total of six bands for the price of five!

Lights Of Euphoria (de/dk)
Lights of Euphoria formed in 1992, initially intended to be just a one-song project for the Body Rapture Volume II under the Zoth Ommog label. However, the club success of ‘Subjection’ was so immense that the band decided to forge ahead with their success. They released several singles in Europe including ‘Violent World’, ‘Fortuneteller’ and ‘True Life’, as well as seven full-length albums.
With a rhythmic quality that strongly hearkens to such well-respected bands as X Marks the Pedwalk and Front 242, Lights of Euphoria’s music is known for its heavy beat and playful style of sequencing. Their vocals are rough, but completely undistorted and totally legible, which in itself is a source of distinction in a genre where distortion is often the name of the game.

Empathy Test (uk)
Empathy Test is childhood friends Isaac Howlett and Adam Relf. Inspired by ’90s bands, underground dance music and ’80s sci-fi soundtracks, the London based duo combine a knack for writing instantly memorable pop hooks with ’80s analogue synth samples and intricate, cinematic soundscapes.

electriXmas 2019 first bands announced!

We’re out early this year with electriXmas! This years lineup is still being put together, but we have the first two artists for you already.

DAF (de)
Many things have been said about this band: they were called the “godfathers of techno,” the pioneers of EBM and the forefathers of electropunk. Yet they only laugh coolly and remain tight-lipped in the face of any attempt to historicise them. Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft – better known as DAF – is a myth.
DAF’s militaristic aspect is only broken by their attitude of denial, which invites us to dance in the dark with them and to follow Delgado-López’s rhythmic movements – even if he seems to be dancing entirely for himself. Perhaps it is that contradiction itself that renders this duo so eternal.

Promenade Cinema (uk)
A modern synthpop duo from the UK. Influenced by the early pioneers of electronic music, together with dramatic film scores and soundtracks, you will find them captivating audiences with ‘danceable darkwave’ and striking multi-layered vocals. Memorable hooks and opulent melodies will take you on a musical voyage covering a wide variety of emotion and imagery.
