OUT TODAY: ‘Blah Blah Blah 15’ Cropper – Sunlight + Hackman Remix Searching strings, live double bass Jazz like keys and a whispy yet penetrating vocal all conspire to dazzle the senses on our stunning 15th record: Cropper - Sunlight F.T A.Z. Cropper - Sunlight is out today on limited vinyl, backed by the dazzling Deep House 3am curveball 'Shade' and the sizzling Hackman remix.

Boards of Canada meets Mathew Jonson: Deepspace – Shinjuku Lights As our post title suggests the opening track on the EP 'Shinjuku Lights 01' is firmly in the Boards of Canada, Mathew Jonson realm of deep, spacey and swirling atmospherics. Sort of tune you could also imagine Joris Voorn weaving into one of his epic track busting mixtapes. To use a classic dance music reviewer's cliche, Deepspace - Shinjuku Lights 01 is other-wordly. With its deep, progressive, trancey structure elegantly sweeping you into another dimension. A dimension that effortlessly dissolves your surroundings with a sense of introspective discovery. Thats a load of big fluffy ... Read more / Preview track

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 ...

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.

A belief that has brought them back together for one more record. Cropper - Shade is the ... Read more / Preview track
