“Seoul’s Idiotape have been making waves internationally with their live mix of analog synthesizers and bombastic drumming. It’s hard not to imagine a sea of people dancing to their forward-leaning energetic live electronic/EDM.” –

Influenced by Korean classic rock from the 1960s and ’70s, Idiotape’s dynamic, synth-driven rhythms and electrifying performances quickly helped them climb the ranks in Seoul’s electronic and indie music scenes. In September 2009, the group earned an invite to play at the Korean edition of the world-famous Global Gathering festival – a remarkable feat considering they had been making music together for just over a year. In July 2010, Idiotape issued their debut “0805” EP. While supporting the EP, the group embarked on a North American tour in March 2011 to play at Canadian Music Week (CMW) and South by South West (SXSW). Garnering rave reviews at both events, the Toronto Star newspaper highlighted them in their “Nine acts that stood out from the pack” CMW wrap-up. That summer, Idiotape performed at two of East Asia’s biggest music outings, Korea’s Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival and Japan’s Summer Sonic.
