The next installment of synth comes out of France by a band called Casino Music. I stumbled across this track when I listened to this weird compilation BIPPP: French Synth Wave 1979-85, a variety of strange mutant disco synth with a hard edge. This track by Casino Music titled "Viol af dis" instantly caught my attention. France has given us Daft Punk and other forms of disco, but it has usually been of the softer and pop variety. This carries a dark, gritty, and robotic edge that is extremely hard to explain- I never knew this shit existed. You could almost say it's French synth-punk, check out the rest of the album if you like this.
