Producers made the records for DJs to spin and DJs spun those records with great dexterity and flare. All was well with the world... Until one day the wicked witch of the western world hatched an evil plan, a plan that caught everyone napping. And with one bite of the forbidden Apple, DJs became Producers and Producers became DJs. At first, like any great evil, no one noticed the change or even questioned it. But as the years rolled on cracks began to appear, and balance lost... Thankfully, like any ...

Lavish House Music via Lobster Theremin with Grant – Hommage Today's selection comes via the underground specialists Lobster Theremin. We're not entirely sure what their connection to Grant is, other than they like to retweet said artists Soundcloud posts and appear to be on distribution duties for this record: Grant - Hommage. And like this vague connection, the details surrounding Grant are equally sketchy. Even the mighty FACTmag, who had Grant in the mix early last year, had few insights to offer.  That said Grant's Soundcloud handle is GrantLA and therefore like Benedict's Sherlock we can extrapolate that he/she resides in Los Angeles, is ...

10 Song Writing Quotes – Inspiration, Hardwork or Luck? There's nothing quite like discovering a great song. It can lift us up in our darkest hour, relate to us personally, bring joy and often times inspire us. Often times, for me at least, finding new music or just music in general is one of the few things that gets me through the day, that and walks in nature and reading my bible. Not very hard-core DJ I know, but I suffer with depression and at times it's hold on me is unbearably strong...Thankfully music has the unique ability to transform the wilderness of our everyday surroundings.

Top 10 Movies of 2016 | Film 2016 has been a turning point for a lot of reasons; a year many would care to forget – hopefully 2017 will be better. The same can be said for 2016 at the movies. After the shockingly disappointing one-two gut punch of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, DC are going to need to pull up their elasticated onesies if they’re going to satisfy audiences - though the hilarious trailers for The Lego Batman Movie suggest that they may have found their niche in ironic animated adventures.
