Frank Booker Interview

Last year I had the total pleasure of playing alongside one of my favourite DJs, Mr Chris Cox aka Frank Booker down at Body Electric at Club 121 in Wellington, New Zealand. It was a classic evening from the needle dropping on the first record to the last hugs… One of those ones. Beforehand Monsieur […]

Maurice Fulton & Peggy Gou ‘Jigoo’

For those of you who have followed the blog over the years it will come as no surprise that this is just another article of proof that my Maurice Fulton fanboydom is veering on out of control. From wayback in the Spectrum and Tranfusion label days to the golden era power punches of the Love […]

Omar S ‘You Want’ LP

Omar S’s new LP might just be the best electronic album of the year, in February (how’s that for annoying journalistic hyperbole). Let’s get that out of the way. It swerves on an empty Detroit superhighway between dance tropes with a gas face ghetto steeliness that just can’t be faked. Like the Ron Hardy reel […]

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 […]
