Ark Prose / Cadence EP

    Tuesday, Chrimbo round the corner, everyone talking about Brexit and Meghan fucking Merkel, who gives a fuck about all that? I don’t, I’m drinking red wine, eating choc and listening to Britain’s greatest lyricist lay into silly subgenres and local councils or something… “Stripped down Italian speedcore New wave of righteous handbag What’s your contribution to […]

  • Tune of the day #105 – Labi Siffre – Bless the telephone

    For the past year, I’ve been working from home. My girlfriend and our littlest have been at home the whole time too (maternity leave see). It’s been lush having everyone under one roof but today, sadly the band has broken up. Maternity time is over, back to work. It’s weird and a bit shit. Here’s […]

  • The Awakening – Mirage (Black Jazz)

    The Awakening’s second album on the legendary Black Jazz Records. Originally released in 1973, ‘Mirage’ is a sprawling masterpiece of spiritual jazz which takes in the whole spectrum. Effortlessly the Chicago sextet jumps between Hard Bop, Jazz-Funk and Free Jazz whilst still retaining a surprisingly consistent sound throughout, its a banger! Sadly, for me, I […]

  • Dead Man’s Chest – Trip II Eclipse

    Dead Man’s chest comes correct with the final part of his Western Lore Trilogy and it’s a smasher! Blissed-out, oversaturated and laced with oodles of rave nostalgia. The title track is a clattering jungle affair fusing dub, tape noise and a lush mono stab. The flip-side of which being the half speed rehash ‘Dub II […]

  • Tape It! Some random thoughts on tapes

    A while back I saw a post by someone, I can’t remember who, asking ‘where the demise of digital sales (Spotify) and the rising price of vinyl leaves today’s producer or DJ’, presumably deep in shit was the general tone. I’ve been known to rant a bit about ‘the gentrification of dance music’ as I […]

  • Cassettes / S&M / Ice

    In 1990-91 my muthler worked in NAAFI (Navy Army Airforce Institute if memory serves). Every so often would come home with a new cassette tape for me. Knowing rap was my interest at the time (I had no idea but the bigger lads liked it and I didnt want them to deck me) The first […]
