Beats Meets Manifesto

Beats Meets Manifesto

In the post post-punk aftermath, as electronic rhythms and synthesisers began to dominate, cutting edge artists began fusing minimal, proto-house music with dark, Gothic-tinged aesthetics to create a hybrid was simultaneously cold/alienated and danceable. Our latest 3CD compilation, Control I’m Here: Adventures On The Industrial Dance Floor 1983-1990, collects many of those tracks to explore this industrial-clubland crossover. Cherry Red are the custodians of many such tracks by artists including Laibach, Alien Sex Fiend, The Residents, 625 Lines, Screaming Trees, M.A.D, Silver Chapter, Hula and The Jackal.
