Jon Sa Trinxa Interview (Part Two)

Here’s part two of the Augmented Ibiza Jon Sa Trinxa interview I did as part of the (iPhone app) promo. Here he talks about his secret and not so secret spots in Ibiza (and the man knows!); if you’re heading to the island this summer or intend to in the future, this is a must-see. Sorry […]

Gangs Of Rome ‘Sol Invictus’ (Heads Down Records)

Well, here I am diligently (hand) stamping the Heads Down logo on my (ultra) limited 12″ release on my new (imaginatively titled) Heads Down Records. It’s very exciting, because I have some incredible releases to come: the first release in ten years from DFA’s Research, a new one from my other label’s (Untracked Recordings) star […]

Jon Sa Trinxa Interview (Part One)

Jon Sa Trinxa is an extremely lucky dude. He has (I think 80% of DJ’s would agree) the dream gig. He plays epic sets twice a week to the sun-kissed faithful at Sa Trinxa on Ibiza’s Salines beach, as well as further sets all over the globe, all through the week. To put it simply, […]

Bryan Ferry ‘You Can Dance’ (Padded Cell Remix)

Do you remember back in the nineties when you used to describe a hot joint as being straight “gaaaangsta!”? Now don’t front, I know for a fact a lot of you know exactly what I’m talking about. Before you became the austere chroniclers of all things high end, collectable and beardtastic, you used to rock […]

Bubble Club ‘Morning Star’ (Soft Rocks Remix)

Soft Rocks are four guys from Brighton with more records than you. And they know more peripherally about those records than you (or me, let’s be straight) so we should really be experiencing that internal conflict between admiration and loathing that these facts generally ignite. I’ve generally loathed them up until now (they’re so frikkin’ […]

Leo Zero Interview (July ’10)

If you ever wondered what it was like to be at ground zero at the genesis of one of the most important cultural movements of modern times, you should probably sit down with Leo Zero (aka Leo Elstob). Lots of people claim to have been there at the birth of Acid House, but few were… […]

Chemical Brothers ‘Swoon’ (Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Remix)(Parlophone)

It’s very rare for major labels to bother pulling out the big gun remixers for major artists anymore (witness the hopelessly rubbish mixes for the Gorillaz album). These days they usually get some kid who’ll do it for nothing on a crack of Reason or something; you know- a electro mix from DJ Wizzle Wozzle […]
