Ruf Dug Presents The Committee ‘Down 2 It’ ft. Watson

OK, so this isn’t fresh-out-of-the-box (it was released back in April), but it’s super fresh. Newness for the sake of newness is not really what Heads Down is about. This is a stone cold mid-tempo basement detonation, period! Once again, this is not speculative; this record is tried, tested and certified at Body Electric. That […]

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 […]

Eno Louis ‘Hot Love’

My old school friend Justin Atkinson pointed me towards this beauty, newly released on the curatorial purveyor of all things lost, funky and African that is Voodoo Funk. They’re having a bit of a moment right now: their last two disco releases have both been heaters (especially the Tony Grey 12″) and despite being remastered […]

LX ‘Synchro Swim’

I’m totally off the pace on this one (its pretty much sold out everywhere bar LN-CC, last time I checked), but this Lexx edit of ‘Black Stations/White Stations’ is the splice of the year for me, hands down. Absolutely perfect dancefloor-detonating arrangement, nice mastering… Fire in the hole! When Lexx is going to bestow upon […]

Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold ‘Truth Machine For Lovers’

Just as I was starting to bemoan the lack of interesting music appearing in this latter part of our frankly incredible summer, along came this filthy missive from Heads Down favourites Velvet Season & The Heart Of Gold. From the skin-crawling title to the Balearic-gone-bad darkness of the sleaze-sodden bass line, this is a much […]

Ashley Beedle at Caravan THIS Saturday

Ashley Beedle’s music has been a bit of a THING with me over the years. I can pinpoint so many moments when I first heard AB records: from Ballistic Brothers to Black Science Orchestra to his latest productions under his own name, they’ve all had a profound effect on me, seeing me through some of […]

Caravan ‘Enfant De La Nuit’ Mix

So here it is: mix numero duo for 2013. I don’t know what it is (or was) that proved such a melon-twisting distraction, but this mix took eons! Hopefully it’ll be worth it though, and subsequently give you all loads of sun-soaked pleasure over the (slow to burn) summer months and beyond (as the other […]

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 […]

Caravan ‘Nouveau Départ’ Mix

Could it be? Is this a hallucination? Am I drunk? Nope, this is, unequivocally, the start of Spring. Bared flesh, people dressing inappropriately for ANY time of year… It’s all there. And subsequently that can only mean one thing: it’s time for the Heads Down Sessions to conjure the sunshine once again at Caravan Exmouth. […]
