New Track: High Contrast and Claire Maguire – ‘Who’s Loving You (Part 2)’

As his name suggests, contrast is the key and High Contrast has continued to defy conventional bass boundaries since he signed to Hospital Records in 2000. His music seems to rapidly progress from one year to the next comfortably hybridising samba, jazz and hip hop elements to the eminent 160 …



Premiere: Detour City – ‘Merlin (Everybody Knows)’

There comes a time in any talented musician’s life when they just don’t want to be that ‘featuring..’ artist any more. And for East Londoner Tabitha Benjamin, of Detour City, that time has arrived.

As if we hadn’t have enough of festivals already, here’s another. But it’s a more convenient one, set in Shoreditch, with a plethora of dance acts. The line-up is aplomb with acts you’re likely to find at an out of town club event, or smaller festivals – names like JJ …



Festival Report: Dimensions

Snap backs? everywhere. Hawaiian shirts (coupled with short-shorts)? Everywhere. Gimmicky tattoos and hi-fade haircuts? Everywhere. That’s right, the hipster Brits have landed, to leave their Dalston footprint all over Croatia’s face.

Billed as the younger, sexier and cheaper kid sister of Outlook, Dimensions Festival was new on the scene this …
