It was back in the mid 80's when Sheffield based electronic post punk band Cabaret Voltaire got new facets into the musical scene. Formed in the early 70's they explored the possibilities of combining new wave attitudes with electronic sounds. Together with bands like Throbbing Gristle they showed us how electronic music and dancefloor music can live together. Their EP Drinking Gasoline was a milestone of pre-dancefloor music and made my ears open to some very different sounds. I think without this basics I couldn't get into house, trance and modern space music.
