Founded in Y2K, Disasteradio is a fast / fun synthpop project by New Zealand solo performer and bedroom recordist Luke Rowell. Playing high-energy live electronics, keyboards and vocoders, Rowell has played over 400 shows across 22 countries - in malls in small-town China, on boats in Lake Geneva, ski-fields in Austria, squats in Slovenia and The Netherlands, and art galleries and house parties across the USA, New Zealand and Australia. 2017 has seen the release of his new independent "Sweatshop" - his fourteenth release, which also includes the MIDI Vaporwave of Eyeliner, and the chiptune project Super Doobie Bros. Continuing as he began with software and virtual instruments in high school in the late 1990s, Sweatshop has taken six years to complete and hybridises rich and, layered plugin synthesizers, symphonic vocoders, driving percussion and a classic songwriting approach.
