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 […]

I recently talked to Heads Down favourite and all round compadre-in-arms Red Rack’em (aka Daniel Berman) about his debut album ‘The Early Years’, on his very own imprint Bergerac. Danny’s been going from strength to strength in the last year with heavy releases on my own Untracked imprint and some other lesser-known labels I can’t […]

Gangs Of Rome ‘Body Electric’ (Heads Down)

As some of you may know, I’m one of the two guys behind the Untracked Recordings label, the erstwhile home to Frank Booker, Red Rack’em and my outfit Atlantic Conveyor (amongst others).

Red Rack’em Interview (Part 1)

Last weekend I nervously travelled to Nottingham to DJ at a secret party thrown by Red Rack’em, he of the Smuggler’s Inn Radio Show and eclectic releases on Untracked, Tirk and Deep Freeze. The party started at 2am and finished at 7am; the well-up-for-it partygoers consisted of the kind of freaks that DJ’s dream of […]
