Maurice Fulton & Peggy Gou ‘Jigoo’

For those of you who have followed the blog over the years it will come as no surprise that this is just another article of proof that my Maurice Fulton fanboydom is veering on out of control. From wayback in the Spectrum and Tranfusion label days to the golden era power punches of the Love […]

Omar S ‘You Want’ LP

Omar S’s new LP might just be the best electronic album of the year, in February (how’s that for annoying journalistic hyperbole). Let’s get that out of the way. It swerves on an empty Detroit superhighway between dance tropes with a gas face ghetto steeliness that just can’t be faked. Like the Ron Hardy reel […]

Mathew Jonson ‘In The Stars’

I’ve never really followed techno auteur Mathew Jonson’s career particularly closely. I enjoyed ‘Marionette’ and that original Cobblestone Jazz 12″ like every other dance anorak, and occasionally delved into his Wagon Repair label’s catalogue, but his releases on Perlon and Minus have generally passed me by. ‘In The Stars’ is the incredible B side to […]

Lexx Originals Compilation (Claremont 56)

I noticed to my profound surprise today that there are still copies of this destroyer of a comp in a couple of shops, which is baffling to say the least. The Originals series of compilations are an Aladdin’s cave of rare music, curated by some of the world’s premiere and tasteful (in a good way) […]

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. […]

Hot Coins ‘Freestyle Lover’

Daniel Berman, aka Hot Coins (aka Red Rack’em) is an infuriatingly talented Scotsman living in Berlin. This blinder is from his upcoming album ‘The Damage Is Done’ (more about that later) which is out at the end of January on Sonar Kollektiv. I absolutely love it. Check out my Basement Sessions interview with Herr Berman […]

Caravan ‘Special Days Indeed’ Mix & final party

It had to end sooner or later I suppose. Not even the most repeatedly lobotomised optimist could call my Caravan night a ‘Summer’ session anymore. Still, it’s a hell of a shame (as I so adore doing it) and we have the long dark tunnel of winter to stumble through before I start talking to […]

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 […]

Massimiliano Pagliara Interview

Massimiliano Pagliara interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints on Vimeo. Massimiliano Pagliara is without a doubt one of my favourite new producers of the last few years. Immaculate analog-soaked production chops matched to a very musical take on modern disco: it’s an approach that resonates strongly with me. His ‘Focus For Infinity’ debut LP […]

Takuya Matsumoto ‘Drafting Under The Stars’

I am probably so hilariously off the pace on this record, but… Who cares right? This is why I became intractably immersed in this music in the first place! This is some top draw, Krug Rose, Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme type shit. Beg, borrow, steal.
