Where past productions and remixes have been on the poppier end of the musical spectrum, Hardcore conjures up a darker, edgier vibe – think the throbbing, industrial-heavy opening club scene in “The Doom Generation” – yet still retains a melodic center on many of the tracks. “I think we’re making music for the apocalypse,” says Michael, only half-joking. “The state of society is at a place where people just don’t give a fuck and that’s what inspires our music.” School hasn't stopped the group from putting on memorable live sets as much as possible. Spend a few minutes at one of DESIGNER DRUGS’ live shows and you’ll see the normally humble pair, spurred on by the intense energy of their music, transform into a different beast.
“It gets pretty wild,” admits Michael. “Even though we’re mellow, there’s lots of stage diving and almost slam dancing. It’s next level dance club shit that almost morphs into that ‘90s hardcore/punk vibe.” Designer Drug’s Hardcore/Softcore will be released February 2011 on Ultra Records More to Know: Website: http://www.designer-drugs.net Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/designerdrugsclubmusic Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Designer-Drugs/21951474675 Twitter: http://twitter.com/designerdrugs Hometown: East Village, New York, United States Label: http://www.ultrarecords.com Read more on Last.fm.
