James Lavelle Interview

Mo’ Wax Recordings releases were an essential part of my musical evolution. Plain and simple. I remember sitting in a warehouse at Taranaki St (in early 90’s Wellington, New Zealand) with a few fellow DJs and hearing for the first time DJ Shadow’s cinematic ‘Influx’ permeate the room like a sweet, dense opiate fog. It […]

Ewan Pearson Interview

It’s funny, despite the monstrous weight of electronic music being vomited out of Apple Macs on a weekly basis and being released by instantly forgotten labels around the world, there are but a handful of producers across the genres that anyone would describe as Premier League. By this I mean producers who can be genuinely […]

Toby Tobias is an excellent British DJ and underground producer best known for his uniquely woozy, technoid take on modern disco and the lesser known fact that he is undoubtedly one of the nicest men in dance music.

Cosmo Interview

Cosmo Interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints Spitalfields on Vimeo. Cosmo (aka Colleen Murphy) is a one woman good vibes generating unit.

Leo Zero ‘Very Repetitive’ LP (with free download)

If you’re a fan of Soundstream, Crydamoure and the rougher cut and paste end of vintage Roule, then you are going to lose your proverbial when you hear this. Leo Zero seems to be going from strength to strength production-wise; the relentless remix schedule over the past couple of years seems to have given him […]

Feel My Bicep Residency @ Plastic People

My friends over at the illustrious Feel My Bicep blog have launched a monthly residency at London’s world-famous Plastic People club (a club known for it’s impeccable soundsystem) and I have a strong suspicion it’s going to be a killer night.

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 […]
