(also called Retro Electro, Nouveau Disco, New New Wave, Tech-pop)
Electroclash fuses electro, techno, synth-pop, new wave, punk and performance art. Early examples of the style were I-F with 'Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass' and Miss Kittin & The Hacker's 'Champagne E.P." DJ Larry Tee, who coined the term, and DJ Hell, whose International Deejay Gigolo Records label was home to many of the acts, helped create a cohesive scene in the early 2000s. The terrm is particularly associated with acts such as Miss Kittin & The Hacker, Fischerspooner and Tiga. Towards the middle of the 2000s, elements of the sound became popular in mainstream music with artists such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue and others releasing material with an electroclash sound.
