Alois Huber & Didi Neidhart
Discozma is an Austrian electronic duo consisting of Alois Huber (Electronics, Sounds, Sonic Spirits) and Didi Neidhart (Beats, Sounds, Sonic Effects) with a deep passion for disco, house, dub and space. But most of all they love to transform those styles into something else (together with the mixing desk wizard FALM). Disco is just their launch pad to explore further regions. On the other hand we have Ozma, or as they say, Princess Ozma, the rightful ruler of Oz, the land over the rainbow whose name gave inspiration to the legendary "Ozma Project" a pioneering 1960s SETI experiment to explore alien life forms. But their 4-Track-12" is not only about outta space.
"Uppsala Jaguar" comes as a modern re-enactment of a drunken Michel Foucault speeding up his car (a jaguar) in 1955 thru the city of Uppsala/Sweden. "Lavender Island (Disco Montez)" is an incredibly strange sonic trip to an enchanted island with exotic life forms, dedicated to Princess Ozma, Jack Smith, Mario Montez and Thee Deep Ones. More party goes on on "Under Green Wigs" where kinky rhythm machines in drag go wild at a fancy ball at the house of Jacques Lacan who wears one of his favourite green wigs. And on "Space Jaguar (FALM Remix)" we'll meet again with Foucault. But this time (with vocals & lyrics contributed by the famous Austrian painter Elke Silvia Krystufek) our Uppsala Jaguar is heading outta space after tripping on LSD at the Death Valley in 1975. So if you want philosophy you can dance to - DISCOZMA is the right choice for you!
