Club Scenes: Electro


This week we are taking a look at four club scenes - and for the last in the series, we turn to electro.

Bugged Out is a club night described by its promoters as an "all night mutant techno party".

It started in Manchester 15 years ago as an offshoot of the now-defunct magazine, Jockey Slut.

Promoter Johnno told us they started out playing techno, which morphed into electroclash - and then into electro/techno.

We caught French band Justice and DJ Erol Alkan at London club, The End, just before it shut down. Johnno told us he's seen their brand of noisy electro-rock explode in popularity in clubs around the world.

Produced by Sara Barman

Where to go: There are now regular Bugged Out nights in London, Manchester, Milan, Rome and Barcelona, and occasional visits to other clubs in the UK and around the world.

Key names: Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, Tiga, Fatboy Slim, Felix Da Housecat, Miss Kittin, Mylo, Scissor Sisters, 2ManyDJs, Simian Mobile Disco, Rex the Dog, Boys Noize.
