History of music is a story about resistance against slavery and depression. The pure joy of living will not make you sing. Maybe in German „Musikantenstadel“, while drinking too much beer. Quality music arises from misery, asking for protest, bringing people onto the streets, making one’s voice heard. Just think of Afro American Slaves, creating Rock’n Roll, or Jews and Gipsys strongly influencing European music. Or Russians, always being suppressed, knowing a lot of songs by heart. When Russians meet, even if they don’t know each other, they are able to sing for hours. Always knowing the lyrics. Germans were suppressed for a long time and could have sang a long song, but they forgot all the lyrics after 1945. The rule stays: As longer people are being dominated as more revolutionary they sing. Music nowadays has lost its revolutionary potential due to growing commercialisation. We are eager to help with our Revolution Disco! – Wladimir Kaminer
From Moscow to San Francisco – that’s how Revolution Disco sounds! Passionate, political, energetic, radical and ideal to blast the dance floor. DJ Leo Trotski and his sound system Red October transform every party to a demonstration with their sound selection! Viva la Revolution Disco!
What is in a DJ case these days? You can hear the sound of old vinyl scratching and the choir sing „Haydi barikata, Haydi barikata“. Bandista from Istanbul is the name of a band, that likes demonstrations and happenings as much as they like a club’s stage. Their repertoire contains lots of Turkish evergreen versions from the past decade, that belong into every true revolutionary’s songbook – just like the next track. „El Paso Del Ebro“ by the Motives. You can find it on a record named „Chants De Lutte, a true classic. A milestone in the history of Revolution Disco. Some members of the legendary band Zebra and their friends from the movement „Motive-e-s“ recorded the album in 1997 in Toulouse. It is one of the records, that is played a lot by Red October. It had to be bought two times in order to be always played, says Lady Molotova.
