Moodboard: I Break Horses

Maria Lindén and Fredrik Balck’s second full-length as I Break Horses, Chiaroscuro, is a rather sublime thing. Whether the Swedish duo are dabbling in lurching witch-gaze (‘Medicine Brush‘, ‘Berceuse‘) or blissful, escapist synth-pop (‘Denial‘), what really comes through is the clarity and

Moodboard: Brolin

Producer/singer/everything-er Brolin‘s ‘Swim Deep’ is an incredible penso-banger: a metallic autumn sort of a track, perfect for late afternoon blue hour strolls in the crisp industry of cold winds. We loved it so much we had him compile a moodboard of the surprising influences that go in to making



Interview: William Arcane

Like a lot of Londoners, William Arcane hails from the countryside but has thrust himself upon the thick smog that is our capital city, and that transition can be felt in his experimental creations. His infectious, synth driven sound was first showcased in his debut EP Permanence but developed into



Classic Chats: The Field

Berlin – a city for the modern dance music lover more than any other nowadays. Behind its walls of history and modern balance between cultural heroism and strife, its nocturnal life has grown beyond just the ways of hedonism for The Jetset Pack. The superclubs of Berghain and Watergate may …

It all started with a drum kit and a self confessed love for the Spice Girls – Florrie is the girl who moved to London at the tender age of 17 and eight years later has a substantial base of adoring fans.

This artist has the whole package. The British …



Soundchecking with… WIFE

In 2012, James Kelly (singer and chief songwriter in metal band Altar of Plagues) released his debut project under his new electronic alias, WIFE. The release, the ‘Stoic EP’, made a massive impression and led to the hallowed Tri Angle records inking a deal with Kelly for his forthcoming full



Track Premiere: Labyrinth Ear – ‘Lorna’

UK duo Labyrinth Ear is comprised of Emily and Tom. Their paths crossed over mutual tastes in music and their eclectic backgrounds mean that their sound is rather interesting. The blend of folk-like lyrics fosters a visuality to their songs, while the production incorporates references and influences from diverse areas, …



BOTW Moodboard: East India Youth

With his much-anticipated debut album, Total Strife Forever, finally seeing release this week, London-via-Bournemouth’s William Doyle – aka East India Youth – has drawn upon a smorgasbord of inspirations; from Brian Eno to Detroit techno, from Radiohead to Sufjan Stevens‘ sprawling The Age of Adz. It’s the



BOTW Review: East India Youth – Total Strife Forever

2013 was big for British producers. Disclosure hit number 1 with their debut Settle and, amongst others, Mount Kimbie‘s second album shone through in the year UK producers won.
Maybe William Doyle knew something, then, when he quit his role as frontman of indie-rockers Doyle & the Fourfathers in …
