Melbourne's Inkswel Twists Disco Revival Like No Other Australian

He must ink pretty well.

Inkswel has about as many synthesizers as the next Australian guy doing disco revival, but this one doesn’t use his for the poppy stuff you hear from most.

The Melbourne producer rocks odd melodies over synthetic drums and muffled voice samples, and though it’s dancy, it’s all a bit strange.

A ton of great vocalists blessed Inkswel’s tracks for his Get To My Party release, and they make it disco-y as hell, and you can even hear crispy vinyl noise now and again.

Deep Sea Voyage, Inkswel’s most recent release before Get To My Party, is an apparent collaboration with the UhOh Orchestra, who may very well just be a collection of machines in Inkswel’s lab. Then again, maybe it’s a big group of actual musicians. There’s really no telling when you hear his twisted incarnations of hip hop, funk, breaks, and electro.

PS – This is definitely something for Mr. Oizo fans.
