Carl Cox Documentary – Space Is The Place [Watch Now] Earlier this year global DJ legend Carl Cox played the last ever party at the iconic yet now defunct Space nightclub. A nightclub so significant to club culture and Ibiza that Fabric's subsequent fight for survival seemed almost frivolous in comparison. Yet unlike Fabric, Space will not be re-opening, at least not in its original guise. Tonights 45 minute documentary - Space Is The Place, follows Cox across the 2016 season in Ibiza, from the Music Is Revolution opening in June through to the closing in September. It offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on a pivotal moment in clubbing ... Read more / Preview track

Mixcloud SELECTS – David Mancuso Tribute [ Mixtape ] Since the birth of the DJ his or hers most important weapon has been the mixtape. The mixtape is essentially the DJ equivalent of an artist’s portfolio, without which many DJ’s past and present would still be annoying parents with their fat bedroom beats. Yet despite the mixtapes enduring relevance with the likes of Resident Advisor, BBC Radio 1, and Fabric among others faithfully supporting the medium, it has to be said that its impact is somewhat diluted these days. Not only has every man, dog and gran recorded one, but mixing dexterity is no longer a prerequisite either. That said we ... Read more / Preview track

New Music – Shanti Celeste, DJ Koze, Traumer, Erol Alkan This weeks new music round up see's Shanti Celeste release her first official record for 2016 with Dolphin Chant. DJ Koze goes dark with Driven on his forthcoming split 12 for Hart & Tief Germany. Traumer unleashes his third Gettraum record, and whilst not as strong as the first two instalments, Catimini is our pick of the bunch. And finally and by no means least Erol Alkan has gotten all deep and reflective with his thoughtful 80's tinged rework of Beyond The Wizards Sleeve - White Crow. Shanti Celeste is not an artist we have previously featured on Blah Blah Blah. This is not due to ... Read more / Preview track

Bicep – Synthol Hit : Part II [ Mixtape ] Right now few can match Bicep's rapid ascension to the top. Thankfully, unlike some recently elected officials, who shall remain nameless, their rise to the top has been anything but elitist and contrived. Bicep have simply written and played music they're evidently passionate about, and that enthusiasm has propelled them from gym runts to gym Gods. And now, just as the dust is settling on another heavily stacked year it would appear the Belfast duo are preparing one final flex with their second Synthol Mixtape, the rather cunningly titled - Synthol Hit : Part II. The original Synthol ... Read more / Preview track

Gold Panda – Time Eater [ Fort Romeau Remix ] Interestingly, to us at least, our first encounter with Fort Romeau was back in 2013 and his remix of Gold Panda - Community. It was from this point onwards that Michael Greene aka Fort Romeau became a permanent fixture in our listening habits. In 2016 alone he has delivered the imperious Secrets & Lies EP - a record we recently grabbed on the repress. And just last week he unveiled Korgs via his own 'DJ Mag - Best of British' nominated Cin Cin label. Fort Romeau is a master at deep synth led House Music and it was with much anticipation that we clicked play on his second Gold Panda ... Read more / Preview track

Fabric Nightclub wins back its licence… Fabric has formally announced that Islington Council has reinstated its licence.

Nathan Fake – DEGREELESSNESS [Ninja Tune] In recent times Nathan Fake has been somewhat conspicuous by his absence. Yet despite this absence its a name like Boards Of Canada, Four Tet, and Bonobo that instantly commands respect. Admittedly he was perhaps at his most significant in the early to mid 2000's. That said it is often stated that class is permanent and it was with this in mind that we were very intrigued when Ninja Tune sent us his Degreelessness single. Have you ever watched a movie and realised within the opening credits that its going to be a good watch? Something within those early moments immediately captures ... Read more / Preview track
