Ones To Watch: Burn The Negative on Clash Music

by: Tom Spanklin

Big fuck-off dance vocals. They are back for sure. Just look at Chew Lips, who are puffing to keep up with Little Boots, who in turn is sprinting past Ladyhawke faster than you can say ‘glitterball’.

These obese and glammed-up electronics are rife on airwaves and strewn across the dancefloors of house clubs to grimy indie basements, and now are being beamed from places like Carlisle via a band called Burn The Negative, whose sequined manifesto is an antidote to the grim realities painted on every mundane wall of their northern quarter. Singer Mark Baker used to work as one half of Lil’ Devious and has seen every shade of taste pass under his nose.

“We’ve seen it grow and recede then grow again. I LOVE most electronic or dance orientated music with all my heart, the exciting stuff is where you see it cross into other genres, but there’s so much shit around too. As producers and song writers, we’ve seen the music within its formats and its distribution change dramatically, its piracy sadly escalate, its fans grow massively with the mainstream coverage and, most significantly, the accessibility into production, recording and writing through new technology.”
