Kapote Remix EP2 (Toy Tonics)

There I was about to start bemoaning the idea that dance music had finally hit rock bottom and that we should storm the offices of Beatport et al with pitchforks and duct tape (this might still be fun) when there’s suddenly this sustained glut of brilliance! Just goes to show, don’t look to me as […]

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 […]

CZ Wang & Neo Image ‘Just Off Wave’ (Mood Hut)

It’s been a while since Mood Hut hit us with a straight up deep detonation party banger. The Gladys Knight sampling ‘Better’ was their last true discoid destroyer in my opinion (which I just loved mixing into that Walter Gibbons mix of ‘It’s A Better Than Good Time’), so I can’t wait to hear this […]

In Flagranti ‘Affective Placebo Effect’

Recently I posted about the staggeringly good Green Carrot & Selvagem ‘Ossain’ track on Disco Halal and I had a fair bit of enthusiastic feedback asking me to divulge a few more throwback essentials. OK then! In 2007 I booked a young Daniel Avery to play my Discolexia night at Cargo in London. I’d followed […]

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 […]

Carrot Green & Selvagem ‘Ossain’

As Heads Down has been out of commission for the last 4 years (!) I feel that’s it’s not too out of order to have a little retrospective on some of the tunes that during the last couple of years have turned out to be weapons-grade club destroyers of a more underground nature. One of […]

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 […]

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 Young Gentlemen’s Adventure Society/Parada 88 – Adventure Party / You’re Gonna Miss Me

Well, this has been a long, cold and oddly bleak road to finding some new music worth posting on Heads Down. After sending out a disarmingly sad request on Facebook for something fresh to beat my drum over (as it were) the answer was sitting buried in my inbox all along. While not wildly upfront […]
