Luke Vibert is a man of many aliases - Plug, Wagon Christ, Spac Hand Luke, etc. etc. - but for our money, one of his best has always been Kerrier District.
Kerrier District has been an outlet for Vibert's bizarro disco excursions since 2004, when he released his stellar debut album under the name through Rephlex Records, as well as an unfuckwithable remix of Black Devil.
Although he's only occasionally returned to the moniker since then (one single in 2006, another in 2011), everything that Vibert has produced as Kerrier District has been gold. Combining oddball grooves, funky drum samples, and hints of acid with Vibert's outrageous sense of humour, it's the sort of grin-inducing dance music you wish you could hear every day.
Here, Vibert takes a look at some of his favourite weirdo disco tracks. "Disco" might seem like a loosely-fitting descriptor for some of these, but every track is loose, louche, and funky as hell.
Luke Vibert: "Always love a drum machine beat with loads of loose, funky percussion and handclaps, and a few synths thrown in for good measure. The tiny record label this came out on - Chocolate Star Entertainment Group - is still going!"
Luke Vibert: "Totally ill disco funk synth madness. Love this boogie era - 1983. So much funky yet synthesized shit."
