Kapote Remix EP2 (Toy Tonics)

There I was about to start bemoaning the idea that dance music had finally hit rock bottom and that we should storm the offices of Beatport et al with pitchforks and duct tape (this might still be fun) when there’s suddenly this sustained glut of brilliance! Just goes to show, don’t look to me as […]

James Massiah ‘Natural Born Killers (Ride For Me)’

This is without a doubt one of my absolute faves to emerge from the intra-web ether in the third quarter of 2019. James Massiah is a London poet, as at home performing at the Tate as he is in a sweaty basement getting his diaphragm shook. This track he alluded to in a Red Bull […]

CZ Wang & Neo Image ‘Just Off Wave’ (Mood Hut)

It’s been a while since Mood Hut hit us with a straight up deep detonation party banger. The Gladys Knight sampling ‘Better’ was their last true discoid destroyer in my opinion (which I just loved mixing into that Walter Gibbons mix of ‘It’s A Better Than Good Time’), so I can’t wait to hear this […]

In Flagranti ‘Affective Placebo Effect’

Recently I posted about the staggeringly good Green Carrot & Selvagem ‘Ossain’ track on Disco Halal and I had a fair bit of enthusiastic feedback asking me to divulge a few more throwback essentials. OK then! In 2007 I booked a young Daniel Avery to play my Discolexia night at Cargo in London. I’d followed […]

Martyn Interview

A still-relevant interview that’s been sitting on a hard drive for a hot minute: we cover his early days and inspirations, thoughts on DJing and production… It’s a goodie. You can tell it’s 2012 though… Check out the scoop necks- HA!

Miss Represented (Party Central)

Laughing or whimpering? Blood stained five quid notes. Cheap chaffing leather. A beaming Patrick Cowley. The wrong party at the right time. Forgetting where you are on day two. The above were a few extremely half arsed notes that I made upon listening to this basement sleazefest for the first time. It’s a darkly gleeful […]

Evans Pyramid ‘Never Gonna Leave You’ (Joakim / Max Pask Disco Mix)

Here lies a killer vinyl-only edit of Evans Pyramid ‘Never Gonna Leave You’. Yes yes, it’s all about new music… Except when it’s not. Let’s start by stating there are countless edits of records out there that never needed editing. Someone way more famous than me once said that by removing the cheese you might […]

Lexx ‘Eye 1-2’ feat Asé

I met Lexx aka Alexander Storrer once many moons ago: he was one of the first people I interviewed for Heads Down (see the interview here) in the early days of the blog. I remember we finished the interview after about 30 minutes and then sat around drinking red wine listening to tunes… It was […]

Ruf Dug Presents The Committee ‘Down 2 It’ ft. Watson

OK, so this isn’t fresh-out-of-the-box (it was released back in April), but it’s super fresh. Newness for the sake of newness is not really what Heads Down is about. This is a stone cold mid-tempo basement detonation, period! Once again, this is not speculative; this record is tried, tested and certified at Body Electric. That […]

Rebles ‘Sweetest Taboo’ (Club Mix)

Ah Soundway. Can this label do no wrong? I could dedicate a post to the towering power of their recent output alone (Steve Monite? Flamingo Pier? Hinde? Etc etc), but I’ll refrain because this isn’t a PR release. Still, right now if it’s got Soundway Records on it it means you should definitely pause Big […]
