It’s an album of seven original compositions from Dan Lacksman, who’s better known as being part of the group, TELEX.
Impressively, this material was recorded way back 1977, pre-dating his involvement with the aforementioned electronic pioneers.
Listening to ‘Disco Machine’ not only challenges you to ‘move that body’ in the direction of the disco floor but, more importantly, also suggests that Dan Lacksman’s influence for the later Telex sound was indeed decisive.
A perfect example of this is ‘Rock Machine’ – extremely comparable to ‘Twist à St.-Tropez’ - the track that was later recorded by Telex into one of the craziest cover versions of the French twist hit, and also Telex’ first single.
Picture an evening down Studio 54, with the Kraftwerk guys shaking a leg on the floor with Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, and you’re not far off the sound and vibe of this project.
