Disco Pogo is the new electronic music magazine, website and community from the original founders of Jockey Slut. In fact we're just going repost something else they wrote as they'll say it much better than us. Point being looking through all the old Jockey Sluts (especially the early days ones) they literally got "it" bang on the money. 'It" being an attitude of just genuinely being into stuff and wanting to share it with others. Any old fool can review everything they get sent but it takes some heart to just do what you want and thats what these chaps did. We fully embrace this attitude at Test Pressing and really hope they get the funding together to get this moving as the Weatherall book they put together was just ace. Think Wax Poetics for acid house lovers. Anyway, here's what they said...
"The original founders of seminal electronic music magazine Jockey Slut have announced Disco Pogo – a new magazine, website and community inspired by Jockey Slut featuring the best new electronic music and music from the last 50 years. The magazine will favour longform articles and original photography and will also include some archive content from the original magazine.
Jockey Slut ran from 1993 – 2004 and was the first magazine to feature artists like Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers as well as documenting the Detroit techno and Chicago house scenes with exclusive access to the likes of Underground Resistance, Carl Craig and Green Velvet.
“After the success of the ‘A Jockey Slut Tribute To Andrew Weatherall’ book (published in 2020 and now sold out) we felt compelled to create something fresh.”
You can pre-order the magazine plus buy packages that include a lifetime Disco Pogo community membership, an invitation to the launch parties in London and Manchester and an exclusive Disco Pogo t-shirt here."
