    label: different

    Padded Cell return with new single ‘Guardians Of The Night’. · Padded Cell are Richard Sen and Neil Beatnik. Having won notoriety as a Bronx Dog (Heavenly) and a Dirty Beatnik (Wall Of Sound) respectively, Padded Cell came about in 2002, partly as a response to the conservatism of early millennium dance music but also to act as a conduit through which they could conduct and realize their most outlandish ideas. · A shared history as club DJs and producers means that even the most mindbending elements of their sound are conducted through dancefloor focused channels; disco breaks and rolling percussion combining with menacing synth workouts, electro sensibilities and live instrumentation to create an unholy brew that has been described variously as ‘dark disco’, ‘goth disco rock’ and, perhaps most tellingly of all, ‘devil’s disco’. · Previous support from Harvey, James Murphy Erol Alkan and David Mancuso. · They have also remixed LCD Soundsystem and Bryan Ferry, toured the world from Rio de Janeiro to Istanbul, and seen their music infiltrate mainstream entertainment such as ‘Grand Theft Auto’ and HBO comedy ‘Eastbound And Down’. · In 2012 Richard Sen put together a compilation of early UK house and acid from 1987-1991, called ‘This Ain’t Chicago’, which was released to great acclaim through Strut.
