Black Deer ‘Circle Dance’

I can’t stop listening to this. ‘Circle Dance’ is as much a Post-Punk or Krautrock record as it is house music (if we must revert to these tired genre descriptions). That reverbed, echoing guitar is as close to Johnny Marr as to anything from the black foundations of dance music. William Burnett (Black Deer) has […]

Christopher Tubbs’ Caravan ‘Amour Et Lumiere’ Mix

God this took me ages to do. It’s not even as though it’s some uber-dexterous feat of turntablism or anything, it just wasn’t feeling right. Today though, with all the windows in the house open, the geese taking shelter from the blistering sun under the footbridge outside and the occasional light caress of a cool […]

Caravan ‘Heat Of The Night’ Mix

Seahawks Questicle Comic Strip

Pete Fowler (one of the cosmic adventurers behind the wonderful Seahawks) has just started posting these ‘Questicle’ comic strips, which I think are striking high on the awesomometer. Pete’s obviously well know for his Monsterism designs; now he’s turned not just his musical but his visual skills to the Seahawks project. Dope.

Exclusive Balearic Mike Mixes

I don’t know Balearic Mike (aka Mike Smith) personally, but there’s something about his apparent lack of cynicism and infectious enthusiasm that makes him very welcome at Heads Down. Aside from being a celebrated DJ and collector, he’s also the dude behind the wonderful Fascinating Rhythms label; that last Sam Sallon 12″ is one of […]
