The band who launched a thousand clubnights, including our very own DYC night! So we thought we'd run a special dedicated to everything we learned from the masters of the indie/electro dancefloor banger.
Expect to hear plenty of the back catalogue from the band, plenty of material from James Murphy's indie label DFA Records, plenty of LCD collaborative/side projects, plenty of stuff that we reckon had an influence of the band, as well as all the best in danceable guitar music from those heady times in the early 2000s.
