I used to play in a band in Australia called Untitled Red - pre-techno electronica. It was early-mid 80's, New Order were big, and it seemed like we were following the crowd, but actually some of the tracks would make cool contemporary dance music.
Some of the tracks I'm thinking of are Celestial, Aquatic, Windows on Black, Legions Move, House Above the World and Forever. Some modern production would suit both the dancy ones, and a bit of chillout treatment would suit others.
Greg Day the singer is actually a writer of some note.
