The Dirty Disco "White Room" original and unclean remixes available on iTunes now : http://tinyurl.com/WhiteRoomiTunes
Finding their local music scene to be packed with pretentious, self-important shoe gazing Indie, "Emerging British Electro-pop Sensation" The Dirty Disco desired to create something different, something fresh and something theatrical. Something they’ve succeeded in doing, and then some.
In fact, when asked to describe the pulsating electro theatrics of The Dirty Disco, one crackpot follower had this advice: “Imagine… the lust child of Ziggy Stardust and Britney Spears”. And they weren’t far from the mark. What they neglected to mention was this Britney Spears would also have to have a penchant for bad acid, more than a passing interest in the happenings of back-street Soho and a unique way of fusing gyrating Electronica with infectious pop hooks.
"Fantastically loopy, theatrical and infectious in a warped land that encompasses New Order, The Cure, Cher; Electro-Pop fuelled madness and a dash of psychedelic panache thrown in for good measure. Transcends any real critique. A masterpiece in a world entirely its own.” All Gigs
"Their glam, electro-pop reminded us a lot of Lady Gaga if she had decided to strap a guitar to her body instead of Kermit the Frog" Boom Boom Chik
"An unhealthy dose of glam! Sleazy and above all irresistibly catchy pop" Tom Robinson, BBC6
"The Dirty Disco will give you a uniquely glamorous, highly-electrifying, disco ball-shattering, shimmer-induced ride that will make you dance until your feet hurt so bad you'll have to get a cast" Pop From The Block
“White Room” is the The Dirty Disco’s second single, the follow up to their debut and introductory single "Sista!" which peaked at No. 20 in the iTunes Dance Chart. Both tracks, along with future single “Storyteller” were mixed by Grammy Award Winning Dylan "3D" Dresdow, Will.I.Am / Black Eyed Peas long-term studio accomplice, after the unsigned band got in contact through facebook. Dresdow has been responsible for mixing the likes of Nas, Michael Jackson, Wu-tang Clan, and more recently Black Eyed Peas, Cheryl Cole, Rihanna and Kelis. "White Room" was mastered by Tom Coyne (Britney Spears / Beyonce / Pink / Cheryl Cole).
Initial remixes of White Room are available from Last Japan, Subsource, Shooting Horses, Voltergeist and The Art.
"I wrote the lyrics just as I was getting over a really shitty phase of black, blue and turd brown" says The Dirty Disco's Adam Boy, "And after the ever-so-efficient NHS insisted i needed to spend a few hours in a “White Room” many moons ago. I didn’t want to write a self-pitying song. Sometimes you need to laugh at yourself to get out of the state of mind that has engulfed you. It’s tongue in cheek galore and lot’s of fun”
"Emerging British electro-pop Sensation The Dirty Disco... a perfect balance between emo-fueled pop rock and 80s inspired synth pop with a theatrical twist.. A potent package of both style and substance" Arjan Writes
The bands last 4 headline shows have sold out, including their Death Disco @ The Notting Hill Arts Club appearance, which had a queue around the block, and their festival season kicked off with two fantastic shows at The Great Escape and a headline slot on the New Bands Stage at Beach Break. The Dirty Disco appear on the second stage at GuilFest on Sunday 18th July with more shows and festivals to be confirmed.
"The Dirty Disco will rip off your head and shout down your neck if you stare in their eyes" Virtual Festivals @ The Great Escape
"The whole afternoon however was entirely overshadowed by The Dirty Disco. They were great, equal parts drama school and what Lady Gaga was probably dreaming about when she was playing solo gigs in New York." Quism @ The Great Escape
"If the dirty disco were an actual club, i'd be there every weekend. the place would be sleazy, extravagant, intense, and glamorous. i'd have a lifetime pass, and i'd never leave. alas, there's no such place. but there is a u.k. electropop band with the same name, and those adjectives are a pretty accurate description of their sound. synthy and sexy, it rockets through you like that first snort of coke at the start of a 6-day binge. and you never want it to end." The Pop Sucker
"Ragamuffins who have excellent hair and even better eye makeup for a bunch of dance punk dudes.. tremendous elements of glamour and a vicious take on the 70s that their fore bearers like Bolan or Bowie would've employed had they had the full reign of a studio" The Culture Of Me
"A creature has spawned so bizarre and so colourful...a new chapter in the melting pot of modern pop culture... with a refreshingly authentic ‘Don’t give a fuck’ attitude that seems to seep from every pore.. The pretense is real – Viva La Revolution!!!" We Are Not A Rock Band
“As polished and professional as it is artsy and avant garde...A dynamic frontman. an absolutely bat-shit crazy performer. I was converted into a major fan about ten seconds into the song. Mixes glam, electro, punk, and pop into a perfect cocktail!” No.1 Hits From Another Planet

Four years ago, 20 miles south of central London, four people went into a studio to start a war. Fucked off with so-called live dance acts mincing behind laptops, and rock acts with no more substance than the product in their hair we decided things had to change.
The snarl of Punk, the oscillating sub bass of dubstep, the harrowing melody of coldwave all had to be in there with as much of electronica’s glitches and edits, hip-hop’s flows, the galloping ferocity of drum’n’bass and metal as possible. No subgenre’s safe from the “treatment.” The vivisection becomes complete when firing up the live beast. Amalgamated from double bass, synths, drums, guitars, and vocals, like an amphetamised Rottweiler running riot through a free warehouse party, tearing holes in speaker cones, our live shows leave saucer eyed audiences writhing in sweat-drenched ecstasy.
