Electro band Concrete Disco’s new single Sounds of the Void is ‘winter anthem’

A London-based electro band are aiming to create this year’s winter soundtrack with their new single, Sounds of the Void, released later this month.

Written and produced by Concrete Disco – aka brothers Joe and Dom Berditch, and friend Jonny Wharton – Sounds of the Void is an unapologetically heavyweight track.

Out on November 27, this second single from the outfit marries vocals from Hackney-born poet and performer Raymond Antrobus with dub step and hip-hop sounds – as well as Buddhist chants.

Jonny, 28, from Muswell Hill, who goes by the stage name Jonny Falls Over, said: “The song captures the essence of London’s underground club scene. Sounds of the Void is the ultimate soundtrack to a cold winter’s night in a hot sweaty club.”

The live band and DJ team sees Dom play drums, Joe laptop and keyboard, and Jonny laptop, keyboard and guitar.

Concrete Disco are no strangers to fame, reaching the live semi-finals of Sky 1’s X Factor style show Must Be The Music in 2010, under the name Toxic Funk Berry.

Since then they have rebranded and honed their unique sound to fulfil their aim of “delivering electronic music back to humanity from the tyranny of computers.” Highbury-based Joe, 28, said: “Sounds of the Void is a bone crunching track that will shatter your ear drums.”

Drummer Dom, from Harrow, even caught the attention of London rapper, Dizzee Rascal who, on the Sky 1 show, said he “wouldn’t mind going a few places with [him] – you’d have a good time I think.”

The trio hope to follow in the footsteps of their heroes Faithless and The Prodigy.

Dom, 31, said: “We want to become one of the UK’s top live dance acts.”

Sounds of the Void is available to buy on iTunes from November 27.
