Deep Cinematic Techno: Trevor Jackson – RGBPM Today has been a strange day of conflicting emotions regarding my own personal and continued involvement in music. For anyone who has seen the film 'Eden' and can relate to its final third will perhaps understand where I am coming from. With all that in mind today has been a serious battle against the demons of failure, insignificance and opportunities missed. Yet like a carrot dangling in front of an expectant mule, music continues to lure me down its merry path, with todays seduction coming via Utter and their pressing of Trevor Jackson - RGBPM... According to the official blurb - ... Read more / Preview track

Acid House Anthem Reissue: Grey House – New Beats The House Before clubbing was a thing it was all about the beats and the party. In the late 80's early 90's electronic music was synthesized punk as apposed to v-neck t-shirt wearing, fake sun tan, Prosecco endorsed nonsense. This is not to say that banging rave's no longer exist, rather that this once landscaping altering sound has become, in the most part, overly homogenised and devoid of originality. A reality that means the majority of the current generation of clubbers no longer get to experience the thrill of what 1989's 'Grey House - New Beats The House' embodied. So what makes 'New Beats ...

DJ Sotofett presents Jesse – Twotinos [ New Music ] Creative block, stunted inspiration, lack of mojo? Might be time to move to Norway... Of Nordic origins DJ Sotofett offers up another alluring, effervescent almost allusive EP - 'DJ Sotofett presents Jesse - Twotinos'. Our first introduction to Sotofett was via his utterly hypnotic DJ Sotofett - Current 82 record. A 12 minute opus of sprawling tranquility that despite it's sedate pace was utterly euphoric. A sentiment that his latest offering has no intension of shedding across its 7 exploratory tracks. For comparison purposes it's 'The War On Drugs' minus the guitars. Right from EP ...

Exclusive: Eton Messy preview ‘Cropper – Shade’ [Blah Blah Blah Rec] Cropper has returned to Blah Blah Blah Records to follow up his world wide smash ‘Forever’. Since marking BBB’s tenth release in 2013 ‘Forever’ has been snapped up by Universal, racked up half a million plays worldwide and played on Radio 1 by Pete Tong. To some such success may seem common place, or not that remarkable, however for artist and label these were very proud moments, not to mention moral boosting confirmations in their personal belief in the music they were presenting. A belief that has brought them back together for one more record. Cropper - Shade is the ... Read more / Preview track

Listen New Music:  Mathew Jonson, Bicep, Hodge, Daphni New Music from 4 top line names: Mathew Jonson - The Prophet, Bicep - Aura, Hodge - No Single Thing and Daphni - Face to Face. All naturally caught our eye due to the names involved but not necessarily our ear. There are no stinkers here, no point wasting words on a stinker. That said do all 4 pass our - 'would we pay to own it on vinyl', test? Mathew Jonson - The Prophet Opening with what can only be described as true analog noodling The Prophet suggests Mathew Jonson is in free form mode once again. For anyone who watched his FACTmag against the clock video will know that Mr ... Read more / Preview track

Dynamic percussive House: Novio Dub Tribe – Kakiuchi Dub If thumping kicks, crisp percussion, deep atmospherics, strong groove and smatterings of melody make you go weak at the knee's, then you may want to sit down before spinning todays recommendation: Novio Dub Tribe - Kakiuchi Dub. Novio Dub Tribe - Kakiuchi Dub is the lead track from the AKIBA EP and it's Microhouse at its finest, well at least we think it is, as truth be told Microhouse is not a term we use that often. And with that in mind perhaps a better analogy would be to compare this record with an elaborate DJ Drum Tool or a bass led Pearson Sound, minus the perplexing the twists and ...

Minimal Tech-House hypnosis from Paris: YYY – YYY 797A Salut... Need some bouncing, grooving, minimal tech-house? Then Parisian born YYY - YYY 797A may just be your jam. It's most certainly been ours since featuring their similarly titled YYY 398A in the 47th edition of the WeAreBlahBlahBlah mixtape series. And because of that feature YYY France has now become one of those enigmatic underground labels that we hope can become the pièce de résistance of our record collection. Like 'YYY 398 A' which you can preview , YYY 797A has an immediate head nodding, toe tapping bounce to it. Suggesting that YYY, who ever they may be, have ... Read more / Preview track
