Paweł Zadrożniak’s Floppotron performs yet another all-too-perfect tune for its clanky electromechanical instrumentation, the 1983 New Order classic Blue Monday. Those little click breaks on the hard drive servos are just what the doctor ordered.
The Floppotron plays a song which feels like it was tailor-made to be performed on old floppy and hard disk drives – Eurythmics’ 1981 classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). The synth sounds just work perfectly on the computer hardware, and who are we to disagree?
Paweł Zadrożniak’s retro-mechanical orchestra The Floppotron is back with another great cover. Listen up as it performs a Bee Gees’ disco classic. If you prefer something a bit more modern, he also dropped a cover of Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger this week.
