Biography

Laserdance is a synthdance studio project formed in 1983 by Erik Van Vliet and Michiel Van Der Kuy. The first single, “Laserdance,” was composed by Erik Van Vliet.

The band released their first album Future Generation in 1987. They continued to release one album per year until disbanding in 1995.

While many of the songs on Laserdance’s full albums are listed as being composed by Erik, Michiel contradicted this in an interview, stating “Yeah, he was actually the person who was selling the records. He wasn’t playing at all. […] Yeah, he sold the rights. I was playing the songs, and he sold, sorry, bought the rights. That’s why his name was on the songs.”

In 2000 Erik van Vliet released a new album as Laserdance called Strikes Back.

Michiel Van Der Kuy stayed silent in the synthdance scene for these intervening 9 years, but then with Rob van Ejik started a new project: “AREA 51”.

    Laserdance and Koto - music of my teenage years... Cassettes played hundreds times... Later I forgot about that sounds for long years and now just discovered it again. It's amazing! Thanks to Spotify, I can come back in my memories to these old, good times. Surprisingly, I remember almost everything - like patterns printed in my memory.

    Laserdance один из немногих проетков кто делал просто шедевралного качества эелеткроник на тот период. Даже сейчас ихние старые треки середины 80-ых звучат очень сочно.
