Lady Blackbird ‘Collage’ (Bruise Remix)

Collage (Bruise Remix) by Lady Blackbird Not since Roisin Murphy’s ‘Incapable’ has there been such a tub-thumping, sweat-dripping-from-the-walls euphoria dowsing of a record. The slightly off kilter piano loop, jacking baseline and this talented woman’s exceptional vocal make this a record I’ll be playing all summer (if you’re in the southern hemisphere) and the perfect […]

Maurice Fulton & Peggy Gou ‘Jigoo’

For those of you who have followed the blog over the years it will come as no surprise that this is just another article of proof that my Maurice Fulton fanboydom is veering on out of control. From wayback in the Spectrum and Tranfusion label days to the golden era power punches of the Love […]

Omar S ‘You Want’ LP

Omar S’s new LP might just be the best electronic album of the year, in February (how’s that for annoying journalistic hyperbole). Let’s get that out of the way. It swerves on an empty Detroit superhighway between dance tropes with a gas face ghetto steeliness that just can’t be faked. Like the Ron Hardy reel […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Roisin Murphy ‘Incapable’

It seems I am officially a Roisin Murphy super fan. I’m not sure when this happened. The shrine I’ve built in my attic next to my Morgan Geist place of worship (which is starting to look a bit dusty tbh) is looking very nice! Some shreds of a Comme Des Garcons dress she wore on […]

Al Dobson Jr ‘Santiago Black’ (Ptaki Version)

Well, well, well. A new record I really love. I’m not going to reel into some verbose soliloquy about how the bassline makes me feel the same electrified joy at finding a copy of Knave hidden in the bushes outside the school bus shelter thirty years ago. I mean it might- I’m not at all […]

The Cult Of The White Shirt

  I have an obsession with white shirts. It’s not just a case of ‘liking’ white shirts, it’s more that I find them calming, inversely pornographic (considering a white shirt’s inherent purity) and, when done well, an act of near perfect creation. A lot of people think that a white cotton shirt is just a […]
