‘Next Wave Acid Punx’ is a journey across nearly 40 years of dark club music compiled and curated by Berlin-based Musician and DJ, Luca Venezia aka Curses. The first part takes early tracks from bands who came directly out of the punk and new wave scenes, that played a major role in forming Luca’s musical taste. The second part celebrates current music influenced by these early pioneers and exclusive tracks made for this compilation, with the passion for these genres in mind.

Three Derrick May (Mayday) remixes from back in the day: Funtopia’s ‘Do you wanna know’ and Yello’s ‘The race’. Essential techno history.
Hypnotic mixes of hypnotic classics… Gay Marvine fixing ”Love Hangover” by Dianna Ross, I Need You (unreleased Tom Moulton mix)” by Sylvester, ”Daily Disco” by Yello and ”Emerald City Sequence” by Quincy Jones.
The latest Strut Records release shines more light on the clanking, far-sighted world of the 1980s’ most revolutionary genres – namely industrial, post-punk and EBM. This time Trevor Jackson is at the helm. His two-disc selection touches on many different strands, from bleak synthesizer jams and crunchy punk-funk to twisted industrial disco, mutant electrofunk and almighty percussive workouts.
