Ivan Smagghe Interview

I’ve been rather fascinated by Ivan Smagghe since I heard his first co-mix for Kill The DJ at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007, whilst speeding along the waterfront to Nice in a convertible beamer at 3am with someone who SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DRIVING (long story). Anyway, it struck me in my addled state […]

The four-piece from oh-so-hot-right-now Silverlake are creators of druggy, woozily psychedelic records about longing, isolation and possessiveness (amongst other things). Andrew Weatherall‘s one of the producers behind the […]

Gang Gang Dance ‘Glass Jar’ (4AD)

I’ve never been big on these guys to be honest; didn’t like their choice of hard preset sounds, didn’t like their very digi-sounding productions.

Idjut Boys Interview

I interviewed the Idjuts for the first time a year or so ago, and it was great fun. Unfortunately it was on a very lo-res format and it’s like watching an interview with two cartoon bubble men made out of Tetris blocks (or something). Anyway, My work with the AllSaints Basement Sessions has luckily allowed […]
