Mother Rose ‘Mother Rose #1’ (Mother Rose)

Occasionally it seems the slightly more advanced DJ slash producer (in years and taste) feels a need to be true to his roots and and release something that strays from the 120bpm four-to-the-floor template. If you’re Eric Duncan or Harvey (Rub N Tug live and Map Of Africa respectively) this seems to be an OK […]

Warpaint Interview

It’s been a good while since I’ve had my head turned by a rock record, but I’m totally seduced by this stone-cold badboy: ‘The Fool‘ by Warpaint. The four-piece from oh-so-hot-right-now Silverlake are creators of druggy, woozily psychedelic records about longing, isolation and possessiveness (amongst other things). Andrew Weatherall‘s one of the producers behind the […]

AllSaints Basement Sessions

Recently I’ve been hard at work in the basement of AllSaints clothing, not in a janitorial role as you might imagine, but rather as part of the music team putting together interviews and sessions with new bands, interesting DJs and pioneering producers for the new music page on their website. I’m going to post my […]

James Pants Interview

James Pants makes me want to make more music, period. His productions have a level of joie de vivre and straight joyfulness that most music makers I know would give their left testicle (or ovary for that matter) to maintain. He wears his influences on his sleeve: post punk, disco, hip-hop and rock all get […]
