9th House ‘Keeping Me Up’

This vinyl-only gem from W&O Street Tracks has been made to satiate Nu Groove loving ‘real’ house evangelists, the kind who sign off their text messages with ‘Keep On’ and cry every time a Braxton Holmes 12″ is bootlegged. Still, what’s wrong with that, eh? It samples Maxwell (yes yes, hear me out) but you […]

Takuya Matsumoto ‘Drafting Under The Stars’

I am probably so hilariously off the pace on this record, but… Who cares right? This is why I became intractably immersed in this music in the first place! This is some top draw, Krug Rose, Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme type shit. Beg, borrow, steal.

Massimiliano Pagliara ‘Focus For Infinity’ LP

I first became aware of Massimiliano Pagliara back in 2009 on discovery of his ‘Toxic Love’ EP on Live At Robert Johnson.

Kasper Bjorke ‘Heaven’ (Prins Thomas Diskomiks)

I don’t think anyone would argue that this past summer has heralded a real resurgence in the Balearic music tradition (how’s that for a red rag to a bull). What have the big tunes been? Well in my book it’d be hard not to mention Begin’s ‘Optical Holiday‘, Mudd & Pollard’s ‘Vincent‘ and this out […]

Begin ‘Optical Holiday’ (Begin)

Today has been one of those days that almost transcends the summers of your childhood. Piercing blue skies, a mere suggestion of wind and a look of rural contentment on everyone’s face (and this is frikkin’ Camden we’re talking about). When I got home this afternoon, I put on what is absolutely one of my […]
