Due to demand, Disco Inferno’s widely acclaimed EP collection album ‘The 5EPs’ is getting a vinyl release. Gathering together for the first time all five long-out-of-print EPs which were originally released between 1992–95, the album gained widespread praise from across the board last year, bringing the band deservedly back into the spotlight.
Since they split up in 1995, Disco Inferno’s influence on modern music has grown steadily. Certainly more popular now than they were during their creative peak, you might detect either direct influence or certain similarities in the likes of Deerhunter Atlas Sound, Matmos, Animal Collective, Black Dice, The Avalanches, Battles, and No Age.
“The whole is much greater than the sum of it’s parts… one of the most creative uses of sampling I’ve ever heard. It sounds like the future. I’m still figuring out just how cool they are.”
Ben Goldwasser – MGMT (2011)
