"Discopolis at Bloc, Glasgow"

If there’s one new band setting the heather alight in Scotland this year, it’s Discopolis - NME


"Radar's T in the Park Reviews Part Three"

"They are the absolute triumph of this year’s T Break, the epitome of what the project is designed to do. These guys will be playing bigger and busier shows in no time." - The Scotsman


"Radar Tip of the Day #45"

"The Edinburgh trio – reviewed live in the Radar section of this week's issue of the mag – sound like the banging-est bits of Friendly Fires and (when they really go for it) Deadmau5 colliding in some student halls." - NME


"T Break Line Up For 2011 Announced - Napalm Love's Top Five"

?"Won’t be long until they’re rightfully signed to a record label... sound quite unlike anything in Scotland at the moment... sound like digital fucking, Napalm Love imagine songs being romantic backing tracks for synthetic-ecstasy-fuelled robot fornication in the future... unless they manage to crack time-travelling as quick as they wrote their stellar songs, they’ll have to make do with T Break... going to be huge." - Napalm Love

Bio

Discopolis are a young, emerging three-piece band from Edinburgh. They create electro/indie/house music with synthesizers, computers, guitars, drum machines and more. The three school friends, Fergus (vocals, synth and guitar), Laurie (synth, guitar and samples) and Dave (synth and drum effects), formed in 2010 and began playing live in 2011, being selected for T in the Park's T Break initiative after just 2 live performances. The band has balanced honing their live act at summer festivals and across the UK supporting acts such as The Futureheads, Metronomy, Matthew Dear and Fenech-Soler while writing a wide selection of new songs and remixing songs for Paper Crows, Diagrams, Airship and more. The band have several UK and European performances lined up for the remainder of the year. They have received a great deal of airplay nationally on BBC Radio 1 including a live session on BBC Introducing in Scotland and England, with early support from Nick Grimshaw and Rob Da Bank and recently on the BBC Introducing Playlist, across digital DAB stations and have also received a great deal of press attention and acclaim, from sources such as the NME, The List and The Scotsman. They released their first single, 'Lofty Ambitions', on August 15th on digital label Eli and Oz. A recent live review from the NME said “The band have captured the unlikeliest of hearts, and with any luck, they’ll soon be after yours too…”
