Nextup: Hokusai – Black Rose (Blawan Remix)

Following a substantial break from producing under his Blawan alias, Yorkshire techno baron Jamie Roberts is back with a remix of Source Direct’s Black Rose. Blawan has twisted the seminal drum and bass duo’s original into a straight-up techno banger which Surgeon is already describing as his ‘tune of the year’. While sounding slightly less […]

Nextup: Mosca – Suckle/Vinny

From the generic tech house of Eva Mendes to the sublime garage remix of T. Williams’ Heartbeat, Mosca’s career has undoubtedly produced some varied productions. This week, however, saw a landmark release for the Scotsman: the first on his own label, Not So Much. A-Side ‘Suckle’ is a sparse, reverb-drenched track whose centrepiece is a […]

Nextup: Lone – 2 Is 8

Lone’s latest album ‘Reality Testing’, the sixth in his already-accomplished discography, is due for release on R&S on the 16th of April.

Spottieottiedopaliscious, the 12th track on Aquemini, is one of the tracks which for me best represents them in their neo-soul peak. Following a brief introduction, the song’s most important element soon comes to the fore: […]

Nextup: Pev & Asusu – Surge (MMM Remix)

Multi-faceted Bristolian producer Peverelist had a brilliant year in 2013, with his Asusu collaboration ‘Surge’ being just one of a string of releases on Livity Sound. German duo MMM have channelled the abstract, noisy stylings of the original track into a more straightforward techno banger that is ideally suited to the kind of squalid venues […]

Event: Project 13 and Chow Down present DJ Rashad

Event date: 20.02.14 Venue: Soup Kitchen Soup Kitchen’s busy schedule has been consistently impressive this year, and the weeknight booking of DJ Rashad (who came all the way from Chicago) is no exception. Entering the venue at 10.30, I was initially treated to a selection of lackadaisical hip hop in the kitchen, with tracks from […]
