Sounds Like Film Noir: My 2nd DJ set on Mixcloud

People have as many misconceptions about film noir as they do about electronic dance music.

Some examples:

Perception: Film noir is always in black and white, and takes place in the seediest part of the city.

Reality: LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN is in Technicolor, takes place at a gorgeous lake house in the mountains, and is one of the darkest noirs ever made.

Perception: EDM is nothing more than mindless escapism, and has no depth or soul.

Reality: Herman Brood’s performance on “Saturday NIght” is as gritty a portrait of loneliness and alienation as anything in film noir.

Noir is not about style, it’s about bad situations in an unsympathetic world. People get in a jam due to their own greed, and sometimes for no reason at all. Bad Girls are a noir archetype, but the point is everybody’s on the take. Nobody’s any damn good, and if they are, they’re a sucker. No good deed goes unpunished.

That’s the noir worldview. Didn’t say it was mine, but… it can be hard to argue with.
