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. […]

Well in my book it’d be hard not to mention Begin’s ‘Optical Holiday‘, Mudd & Pollard’s ‘Vincent‘ and this out […]

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 […]

Ichisan & Nakova ‘Tarantela’ (Nang)

Most records coming out under the so-called ‘Nu Disco’ banner are unimaginative, uninspired and will soon (as in next year) sound terribly, terribly dated. There, I said it. Unfortunately there seem to be a gaggle of producers who continuously genre-hop with the seasons, bringing their crappy plug-ins, questionable taste and horrible sunglasses with them. They […]
