The band Spektrum might not technically fit into the Electro category, personally I consider them to be more Punk-funk or Disco-not-Disco. One thing is for sure though, the band really do churn out some great tracks.

If you recognise the name already, it might be because of their club smash Kinda New (We all Live and Die) as remixed by Tiefschwarz and Dirty South, the Tiefscwarz mix of which is below, just to jog your memory.

(Apologies that it's got other music around the edges, this was the best YouTube could offer).

All that was back in 2006, and of course we don't expect the band themselves to produce more tracks sonically similar to a remix they weren't responsible for in the first place!

Fast-forward to 2008, and Spektrum have a follow-up album entitled Fun at the Gymkhana Club, showcasing their own musical style, which bears more than a passing resemblance to that of New Young Pony Club, but somehow with much more energy then the aforementioned band. Indeed, Spektrum's album cover features the band in horse-riding gear, and the album itself contains a track named Horny Pony(!) possibly in a sage nod towards NYPC.
