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 […]

2 Bears Interview

We’d been going back and forth with these guys and their management for a while at the Basement Sessions, so I was subsequently surprised and stoked when it happily eventuated. I had tentatively high hopes for their LP ‘Be Strong’, but as I’m very used to be colossally let down by seemingly promising dance artists […]

Massimiliano Pagliara ‘Focus For Infinity’ LP

We chat about Chicken Lips’ upcoming album, his origins and his inspirations, as well as fitting in a quick behind the scenes look at […]

Ichisan & Nakova ‘Tarantela’ (Nang)

Most records coming out under the so-called ‘Nu Disco’ banner are unimaginative, uninspired and will soon (as in next year) sound terribly, terribly dated. There, I said it. Unfortunately there seem to be a gaggle of producers who continuously genre-hop with the seasons, bringing their crappy plug-ins, questionable taste and horrible sunglasses with them. They […]
