Song of the Day: The Palace Discotheque – Niko

The Palace Discothequeis the second single from NIKO’s new album Electric Union, released last Friday (22nd October) via ATIC Records. Upping the tempo and getting all ‘electronic’ the track is built on a foundation of pulsing bass and Linn Drum-ish beats with layers of intricate micro melodies and synthetic vocals.

Produced by and written with long-time partner in crime Aim(Cold Water Music, Hinterland) ‘The Palace Discotheque’ has echoes of early Tubeway Army, a perennial influence on the Barrow-based beat maker that combine with Niko’s abstract pop sensibilities to create a heady, neon cocktail.
