Borghesia on the anthological compilation ‘Dancing in Darkness’ along D.A.F., Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle...

We are proud to inform you Borghesia’s mythical track No Hope No Fear’ has been included in the anthological compilation ‘Dancing in Darkness’ (Spotify // Deezer // Google Music), dedicated to the beginnings of electronic music. The double LP compiled by their former label [PIAS] LE LABELincludes legendary hits from bands such as D.A.F., Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, Front 242, Nitzer Ebb and other cult names from the black synth, dark beats and EBM universe.

EBM’s popularity grew rapidly in the underground scene during the 80s and early 90s, especially in Europe, before breaking through in the rest of the world, also influencing the subsequent electro-industrial and techno scene. Today we are witnessing a comeback, or rather re-discovery, through the releases and DJ sets of young producers and DJs from all over the world.

‘Dancing in Darkness’ is homage to the birth of “European techno” music and to bands that changed contemporary music in terms of ideology, politics and aesthetics.

The compilation will be accompanied by a major exhibition on electronic music ‘Electro, de Kraftwerk à Daft Punk’ at the Philharmonie de Paris. Through the exploration of its imagination, its innovations, its mythologies and its correspondence with the visual arts at, you will learn about its epochal importance for music and popular culture. The exhibition will be open from April 9 to August 11.

Yet, Borghesia do not rest on their laurels!

The band is still promoting its magnificent current full length 'Proti kapitulaciji', a free-floating retrofuturist industrial art rock epic based on Srečko Kosovel’s modernist poetry that sits somewhere between an alternative soundtrack of Blade Runner, the uncanny ambience of Coil, melancholy of Berlin era David Bowie and immediacy of Nine Inch Nails.

Borghesia is also getting back on stage soon - having 4 shows announced in Ljubljana, Belgrade, Nova Gorica and Zagreb.

19.4.2019 @ Ljubljana, Orto bar – Ortofest (SI) – FB
