An international overview of the most innovative and exciting examples of graphic design created for electronic music and club culture in the 1990s, Discstyle is a visual journey of incredible variety. Its predecessor, Technostyle, was reprinted several times and won wild applause from both music industry publications and mainstream media.
The primary message that Discstyle conveys is that the electronic music scene has undergone enormous change - with the emergence of new genres such as Dopebeat, Drum'n'Bass, Triphop, Big Beat and the very latest of all, Electro, Techno no longer dominates party culture and club life. Like the music, design has branched out too, and as Discstyle's remarkable collection of record covers, CD booklets, labels and flyers show, achieved even greater heights of creativity. The book features an updated timetable of the genesis of electronic club music and a preface by founder of the Designers Republic and master of visual beats, plinks and plonks, Ian Anderson.
