Zombie Zombie ‘Rocket Number 9’ (Gesaffelstein Remix)

Everyone loves a banger. I don’t care if you’re usually to be found trimming your Bonsai trees in Claremont 56 boxershorts, silhouetted against a life-size mural of Ku Club circa ’86 whilst wearing a poncho made entirely of DJ Harvey’s matted pubic hair… At a certain time, in a certain place, you’ll like a banger, […]

Bicep ‘$tripper’ (Love Fever)

The Bicep boys have been fiddling around on their analogue gear for a while now (when they’re not posting on their literally world-famous blog) and they’ve made some good music, but, BUT: this is the sound of producers coming of age in a major way. ‘$tripper’ is a (you guessed it) stripped back and passionate […]

TONIGHT at Mighty Mighty, Wellington, NZ

I’m very excited to announce I’ll be playing tonight at Wellington’s legendary Mighty Mighty from midnight till late with extremely able assistance from local hero B Lo (who more than knows his onions). The last time I played here two years ago I had A BALL, so it’s always a bit nerve-wrecking going back to […]

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 […]

Stefan Goldmann on Berlin & the music business

vimeo Direkt I recently went with AllSaints to Germany to record our first ever Basement Sessions in Berlin (including Aérea Negrot and Gold Panda) and it occurred to me if there was one person I unequivocally had to speak to it was Stefan Goldmann.

Lexx Interview

vimeo Direkt Swiss DJ and producer Alex Storrer aka Lexx is one of the most respected members of the modern disco house firmament. He manages to achieve this without being particularly prolific, but by being high on the quality control and by being very selective as to where he releases his music; Permanent Vacation, Drumpoet […]

Massimiliano Pagliara ‘Focus For Infinity’ LP

I first became aware of Massimiliano Pagliara back in 2009 on discovery of his ‘Toxic Love’ EP on Live At Robert Johnson. His beautifully hazy musicality, deft analog production and perfect mix-downs made him, for me, the man to watch. And the Italian in Berlin has not disappointed with this, his ‘Focus For Infinity’ album […]

Jacques Renault Interview

Signed to DFA and Rekids as part of Runaway, proprietor of On The Prowl Records and remixer du […]

Limited Edition Locussolus album at LN-CC

DJ Harvey to you lot probably needs no introduction. If you are unaware of the surfer-cum-DJ-cum-producer then here’s your wakeup call. Harvey seems to live one of the most male-aspirational existences on the planet; after being landlocked in the States due to visa issues (in Hawaii- feel his pain), he now tours the world in […]

Brennan Green Interview

vimeo Direkt Well, it seems I’ve sorted out the technical issues that have been dogging me for the past month at Heads Down (I won’t bore you with the mind-numbing details) so it’s on with the show… Not so long ago those lovely chaps Toby Tobias and Danny Clark from Late Night Audio kindly got […]
