Electrolight is the collaboration of Chris DiPietro & Steve Diffenderfer.
Chris and I started working together in 1981 as middle school students, silkscreening t-shirts to sell at local hardcore punk shows, slashing speaker cones to find that elusive guitar distortion well known by The Kinks after hearing them play at the Philadelphia Spectrum, making trips to Zipperhead and listening to everything we could get our hands on.
We attended art schools in Philadelphia & NYC. We played in bands and hosted college radio programs with live studio jams.
We started jamming again in 2009 through file sharing and SoundCloud.
In October 2010 we released our first official EP. Electrolight "Riptide".
We worked with Saskia Bloem in 2012 with the song "Memo". It is a collaboration of the song "Eff F". We continue to seek out vocal talent for future collaborations.
We continue to record, mix & master using Sony Acid Pro, Propellerhead Reason, Cubase & IK Multimedia T-RackS and gear from Fender, Ibanez, Marshall, Mesa Boogie and Electro-Harmonix. Our Electrolight project is informed from the worlds of guitar driven Alternative Rock, Surf & Electronica.
