YDP In the Know: Delorean

If, like most people, you consider Dusseldorf’s own Kraftwerk to be one of the originators of what we now enjoy as dance/house/electro etc., then it’s easy to view Europe as a  kind of Garden of Eden.  Far more recently, groups like Daft Punk, Justice, and the rest of the Ed Banger crew have shown us that great dance music is pouring out of France.  But the old continent isn’t anywhere near done yet.

Delorean, a group that’s recently caught my ear, hails from the Iberian Penninsula.  I feel a bit disingenuous claiming that I’m In the Know regarding them, because this Spanish group released an album way back in 2004, for a total of 3 before this year.  Their most recent album, 2009’s “The AyrTon Senna EP,” has a bunch of cool little house/dance beats on it.  You can really hear the influences of the group’s other projects, coming largely in the form of remixes, (they did my favorite re-hash of the Mystery Jet’s “Half in Love with Elizabeth”) and the experiences the group has had running their own Barcelona club.  They performed in the US for the first time this year at the SXSW festival in Austin, and it shouldn’t be long before they’re doing the good ‘ol USA tour circuit.  When they do, YDP will definitely get to one of their concerts, and share the magic.

Enjoy a sampling-
