Psychemagik Presents ‘Magik Sunrise’

Over the years I’ve met all types in my two decade trawl through the choppy seas of dance music. From those souls who never quite made it back from Ibiza, the hoards of house producing opportunists in the nineties (and they’re back!), the misguided clubbers who gave their lives to the nocturnal utopianism of dance […]

Lexx Originals Compilation (Claremont 56)

I noticed to my profound surprise today that there are still copies of this destroyer of a comp in a couple of shops, which is baffling to say the least. The Originals series of compilations are an Aladdin’s cave of rare music, curated by some of the world’s premiere and tasteful (in a good way) […]

Kris Needs Interview (Part Two)

Six months later and here, finally, ashamedly, is part two of my Kris Needs interview. I would wear you down with numbingly predictable excuses, but because it’s Christmas I’ll generously refrain. To remind you: I went to see the infamous music journo and raconteur to talk to him about part one in his amazing ‘Watch […]

Disco Discharge Compilations Competition

It’s competition time here again at the venerable Heads Down, and this time I have an interesting series from Harmless called Disco Discharge. It’s compiled over four packages and eight CDs (it’s freekin’ massive!) comprising of Disco Fever USA (as you’d imagine), Mondo Disco, Euro Beats (some gems here amongst the predictably dodgy gear) and […]

Terry Farley & Dave Jarvis on going to Shoom

I mentioned in a post the other day that I might be cornering these guys for a chat about the early days of Acid House, and here it is. I have about an hour of footage (all gold) and I’m going to chop it up into swallowable bite size edits for you the MTV generation. […]

Terry Farley & Dave Jarvis ‘Happy Days’ Interview (Part 2)

Here’s part two in my two part interview with the boys. Here they talk about the occasionally intimidating nature of dancing in clubs in the late seventies and how clubbing outside your area was akin to going to the moon. This is definitely one of my favourite Heads Down interviews! If you want to hear […]

Terry Farley & Dave Jarvis ‘Happy Days’ Interview (Part 1)

Last week I sat down with two men who’ve seen more than their rightful share of the nightlife; from Junior Boys Own to Faith respectively, these guys were there and in my opinion remain relevant exponents of all that is good about dance music. Terry and Dave have just released an amazingly comprehensive series of […]
