Item description for Discstyle Ö the Graphic Arts of Electronic Music and Club Culture House Techno Electro Triphop Drum'N'Bass Big Beat: The Graphic Arts of Electronic Music & Club Culture Techno Electro Triphop Drum'N'Base by Markus Pesch Martin; Weisbeck...

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.

Markus Weisbeck master of underground knowledge.  Nov 28, 2000
Seriously. Markus Weisbeck is one of those obsessed guys who just gets so deep into a topic that if he claims something is the way it is, you better trust him. If you are looking for a super comprehensive source of excellent design then trust Mr. Weisbeck. This book contains all the good stuff... from Eike to Stardax, Karl Kliem and meso's "involving systems'. And if you ever wondered how certain styles of club electronic house and techno electro are interconnected, Weisbeck and Pesch provide you with a very exact two page family tree of music styles. This 12inch softcover is technically a volume two to Pesch and Weisbeck's "Techno Style",... Well, and one more thing. This book contains some of the work of the master himself. Markus Weisbeck likes to include his own design in his books. He is the creator and the critic in one person. Everydesigner should have his books in their collection. Learn from Markus Weisbeck. He is a good designer and he is good for design. This book is fresh. Get it.
 
*slick, simple eye candy that comes from the beats...*  May 3, 2000
I found this book at the Virgin Megastore in NYC and I have yet to see it elsewhere, but it should be picked up wherever it is found. For those who find the graphic design of 'electronic' music a style of its own, Discstyle provides the best in book thats a example piece itself. The CD covers, vinyl sleeves, flyers, and fine art pieces of many different designers all contain the same concept of big-time visual impact with their simplicity. The layouts may contain nothing but a few words and a picture, but it reflects the music- for those who love the infectious beat, you know what I mean. With a guide in the beginning that traces the short history of today's house, trance, breakbeat, jungle, etc. the book shows where it's contents came from- getting down all night long.
