Tommi White ‘We, The Unexpected’ (Oblong)

This undoubtably comes under the archival heading of ‘secret weapon’. Every time I’ve played this sucker over the years someone’s run up to ask what it is. I remember Rocky from Express-2 even offering me hard cash for it! ‘We, The Unexpected’ was released back in 1999 by Lewis Copeland (ex owner of the now […]

Exclusive International Feel T Shirt & CD

My lovely peoples down at LN-CC (Bad Passion’s Dan Mitchell and the top-notch producer Jonny Nash amongst them) have just released this exclusive T Shirt/CD from Uruguay’s cosmic leftfield label International Feel. I remember when International Feel released those first edit bits and everyone thought the label being from Uruguay was some kind of joke […]

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 […]

Leo Zero Interview (July ’10)

If you ever wondered what it was like to be at ground zero at the genesis of one of the most important cultural movements of modern times, you should probably sit down with Leo Zero (aka Leo Elstob). Lots of people claim to have been there at the birth of Acid House, but few were… […]

Chemical Brothers ‘Swoon’ (Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Remix)(Parlophone)

It’s very rare for major labels to bother pulling out the big gun remixers for major artists anymore (witness the hopelessly rubbish mixes for the Gorillaz album). These days they usually get some kid who’ll do it for nothing on a crack of Reason or something; you know- a electro mix from DJ Wizzle Wozzle […]

Seahawks ‘Omega Beach’ (Captains Log)

Seahawks are two music enthusiasts named Jon Tye and Pete Fowler (he of Monsterism fame). Couple of guys, little vinyl record label (Captains Log), a bit of gear (I’m talking about synths here, hedonists)… All pleasantly predictable enough right? But here’s where it gets interesting. Because these guys are doing something truly and identifiably original. […]

Luca C & Brigante ‘Lucio’ (Double Drop)

OK, Luca C is not what you’d call an unknown. He’s Ali Love‘s tour DJ and occasional co-writer, a relatively well-known promoter in London (with his east end night ‘Spangles’) and from what I can see, a bit of a man about town. Even taking this into account, given his recording history this collaboration with […]
