Miss Represented (Party Central)

Laughing or whimpering? Blood stained five quid notes. Cheap chaffing leather. A beaming Patrick Cowley. The wrong party at the right time. Forgetting where you are on day two. The above were a few extremely half arsed notes that I made upon listening to this basement sleazefest for the first time. It’s a darkly gleeful […]

The Horrors ‘Still Life’ (Connan Mockasin Remix)

First heatrock of the year alert campers! This killer is part of an upcoming The Horrors remix box set, and it’s worth the price of admission alone. You can here Connan Mockasin’s Kiwi heritage in the scank; this is a record that’s going to be in the box for years to come.

Phil Manzanera ‘Listen Now’ (Velvet Season and the Hearts Of Gold “Unlimited Financial Resources” Remix)

Now considering my last post was LN-CC based (in fact it referred to the release party for this very record) I know it might appear as though I’m some kind of Dalston shill, hungry for fashion love and a free Yohji jacket or something (actually, I wouldn’t mind that) but nothing could be further from […]

Lana Del Rey ‘Blue Velvet’ (Lindstrom Remix)

I’m not going to focus particularly on the original artist here (surprise surprise), or talk about Bernie Wayne’s original or the David Lynch cinematic classic, as I think it’s all a bit beside the point. The star of this performance is definitely the Norwegian Lindstrom, who turns in what can only be described as a […]

Hot Chip ‘How Do You Do’ (Todd Terje Remix)

Why so late in the summer guys? If this doesn’t scream festival anthem I don’t know what does. If anyone ever doubts that great art, psychology and mathematics lie at the feet of every great dance remix, point them to this serotonin release value. Ascending bassline- check. Driving, techy pads-check. Life affirming, sob-athon of a […]

Jose James On The Moodymann remix of ‘Desire’

vimeo Direkt Jose James is an intimidatingly cool cat. I’d like to see someone give him a fright, just so I could see a fracture in that seamless wall of cool. Even more intimidating (in it’s own strange way) is the fact that he’s disarmingly charming, earnest and… Talented (the most offensive of all). I […]

Mountaineer ‘Golden Chalk’ (Version Idjut)(Leng Records)

These days buying new vinyl can be a heart-wrenching experience. Not because it’s all terribly pressed or the music’s hopeless, but because the very sound of most modern music is not really suited to vinyl. That loud, compressed block waveform is very much the product of the digital age, and something ill suited to the […]

Idjut Boys Interview

I interviewed the Idjuts for the first time a year or so ago, and it was great fun. Unfortunately it was on a very lo-res format and it’s like watching an interview with two cartoon bubble men made out of Tetris blocks (or something). Anyway, My work with the AllSaints Basement Sessions has luckily allowed […]

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 […]

Leo Zero’s Disconnect Competition

I have a couple of copies of Leo Zero’s seriously awesome Disconnect compilation to give away here at Heads Down. Leo Zero (check my interview with Leo here) is always welcome here at Heads Down towers, and this compilation is a very good indication as to why. His ‘Disconnect’ mix for Strut is a masterclass […]
