Throwback 2015: Top five labels

We thought then we’d at least try and be a little more interesting, so here (in my totally biased and extremely techno-centric opinion), are the top five record labels of 2015…

Throwback 2015: Top five twats

Instead of the general ‘top five tunes of 2015’, upon reflection, we’ve realised that the music industry’s twats came out in full force this year. We bet you can’t guess who’s top… 5. Elastic Agents Back in the Halcyon days of Myspace; would-be promoters, producers and musicians of every stripe could find, message and forge […]

Nextup: Jet Lag – Kalden Bess

Kalden Bess is a young (in the game) producer from Canada who seems to have his feet firmly rooted in the underground. He recently dropped a three track EP on the Organism label, which included two remixes to round off the package. Organism is one of those beautifully understated labels with a backcatalogue of around […]

Event news: Gottwood 2016

One-of-a-kind festival, Gottwood, returns to its picturesque setting in the forests of Northern Wales. A hop and a jump away from local Northern cities such as Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield, it has become renowned for attracting a plethora of colourful characters, as evidenced in one of the beautiful post-event videos (see below for last year’s edition).

Nextup: Roberto Capuano – Obsessed

What I love about Drumcode is its consistency – releases are always undeniably well produced.

Nextup: Christian Löffler – Lost EP

Christian Löffler is a name that most of us with an interest in deep house will recognise. A steady 6 year stream of releases has seen Löffler become one the genres prized possessions, with a reputation for producing deeply moving melodic excursions. Releasing on the Italian based label, Just This, Löffler offers more of this […]

Nextup: Hans Bouffmyhre – Down the Drain

Hans Bouffmyhre is at it again, the guy is only 25 and he’s already charted a bunch of releases on esteemed techno labels and runs Sleaze Records, one of my favourite UK based techno outfits, at the same time. This latest release sees him dropping a two track EP on Decoy which includes a tantalizingly good […]
