Experimental 80′s music from Newcastle meets 2016 in a self-sampled material with both new and old content. The British duo Dumdum Score, Cristopher Simpson and Michael Fielding, were never quite satisfied with the outcome of their 80′s album. They sampled their own songs and reworked it to an album which breathes synth and tape loops from the 80′s as well as a complex, multilayered content that feels more 2016 than 1987, when the original was released . The atmosphere feels somewhat metallic and desolate, but is also music with a kind of black humour. There are tracks with vocals and voices, sometimes clear, sometimes quite obscure, and there are tracks based only on instrumental and other sounds.
According to Dumdum Score they have tried to create a surrealistic music with connections to various popular currents within art, and they mean that their music is a collision between the concious and the subconcious. Beside the music there are also associatied art and videos you can check out on their site and on Youtube.
