LN-CC Recordings Launch Night 12th December

It was inevitable I guess; LN-CC were always going to take this step officially. Think about who works there: Jonny Nash from Land Of Light, Dan Mitchell from Bad Passion… In fact they’re all total record nerds. So, subsequently you also know that when they do this they’re going to do it with some conviction. […]

Machine ‘Redhead’ (Joe Claussell Interpretations)

This looks great- I’ll definitely be getting my shabby ass down there. Maybe I’ll even don a caftan in Claussell’s honour. Or not, as the case may be. Go here for RSVP.

Caravan ‘Une Nuit De Voyage’ Mix

I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of 2012’s titanically eventful summer, and subsequently ALMOST the Heads Down summer sessions at Caravan. Considering it’s a summer that won’t be particularly remembered for it’s Copacabana-esque weather, for some reason when it came to the sessions it was always sunny and warm. Praise the Balearic spirit! […]

Land Of Light ‘Land Of Light’ (ESP Institute)

I’ve been championing Jonny Nash as a genuinely exciting talent to watch for some time now (see my post on his wonderful Cos Mes remix), so when I heard that he and Kyle Martin (he of Heads Down favourite Spectral Empire) were producing an album together I did a little wee and clapped my hands […]

Andy Blake Interview

Andy Blake is a London-based DJ, producer and label owner. He is also a man that brings a punk rock DIY aesthetic to an industry full of sycophants and predictability. Andy is unequivocally neither. For me, talking to Andy is like being re-baptised in the music and culture you once loved and emerging refreshed and […]

Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold ‘Camel Toe Central’ (Lucky Hole)

This is the debut release on Gerry Rooney and Joel Martin’s new Lucky Hole imprint and the first release as Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold, which they describe as ‘all about sharing their love of music with the world, having fun and not taking things too seriously’. Well despite all this, this is […]

2 Bears Interview

We’d been going back and forth with these guys and their management for a while at the Basement Sessions, so I was subsequently surprised and stoked when it happily eventuated. I had tentatively high hopes for their LP ‘Be Strong’, but as I’m very used to be colossally let down by seemingly promising dance artists […]

Bad Passion with the Idjut Boys

I’m posting about this for two reasons, those reasons being the two exceptional sets of people involved. The Bad Passion boys are, you guessed it, endlessly passionate about their music and incredibly serious about the less-than-serious business of throwing a wicked party. The Idjut Boys are absolutely sensational on a good night, and nothing less […]

Nick The Record Pop-Up Store At LN-CC

Nick The Record is one of those names that has been buried deep in my London musical consciousness since the early nineties (he was a regular player at DJ Harvey’s Moist night in Covent Garden), his name is almost a byword for record lust, obsessive collecting and an uncynical love for spreading the (near) perfect […]

Caravan Le Fin Du Fin Mix

Well, here it is folks: my last Caravan mix of the year. I’ve so loved my second year doing the Saturday night summer Heads Down Sessions at Caravan in Exmouth Market; it’s been amazing to me just how many of you lovely people have actually come down to support- THANKYOU. I went quite housetastic in […]
