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 […]

Maurice Fulton RBMA Radio Show

Anyone who regularly visits my blog probably knows that I’ve got the hots for anything Maurice Fulton related. He hasn’t really delivered any stone-cold monsters since his work with Kathy Diamond though; remember the three pronged assault that was his mix of Alice Smith, the Ost & Kjex remix and Kathy’s ‘All Woman‘? I like […]

Robert Owens Interview (Part 3)

I really enjoyed interviewing Robert; he’s an underground legend, a warmly endearing person and a fantastic artist. And as much as I loved hearing about his writing process, his collaboration with Larry Heard and the creation of his new album, what I REALLY wanted to hear about was the clubs, the atmosphere- what it was […]

Disco Discharge Compilations Competition

It’s competition time here again at the venerable Heads Down, and this time I have an interesting series from Harmless called Disco Discharge. It’s compiled over four packages and eight CDs (it’s freekin’ massive!) comprising of Disco Fever USA (as you’d imagine), Mondo Disco, Euro Beats (some gems here amongst the predictably dodgy gear) and […]

Bill Brewster Interview (Part Two)

Well, my intention for this interview was for it to be in two parts. Annoyingly, when I came to edit, it was all too strong: Bill talking about his seminal experiences in New York is straight-up gold. Damn you Bill Brewster! Part Three to follow… vimeo Direkt

LCD Soundsystem ‘Bye Bye Bayou’ (DFA Records)

It’s always, or rather generally, something to get excited about when a new LCD Soundsystem record emerges from the ether. If you’re a regular reader/viewer/listener of Heads Down, you’ll realise I have the occasional predilection for twisted or ethereal pop- this is one of those records (WARNING: if you’re only here for the discoid underground […]
