It’s easy to see why the productions of Stranger Than Horses dwell in no fixed genre. One look through their history and you’ll see classical training, a ton of unorthodox DJ experience, an eclectic love for music that spans many decades and a technical geekiness that goes beyond obsession into the realm of the indefinable. Trying to describe their sound includes disco and house influences but going down that route isn’t going to do them much justice in print, just let their music do the talking on that one.
Admirers of the strange and the beautiful, their music instantly turns the listener on.Having played out together for over a decade now, their scope and experience is as varied as their musical productions. A couple of DJ highlights include playing alongside The Hacienda’s Dave Haslam, long running residencies at the prestigious Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Museum as the music curators for various exhibitions, the illegal warehouse scene throughout the North of England and bizarre… curry house …erm let’s just call them ‘scenarios’. Their whole vibe doesn’t really fit within one specific scene, and it’s exactly this that makes them at home with their diverse tracks on Lagoon recordings.
