EP Premiere: Oscar Key Sung – ‘Holograms’

A quick Google of Melbourne’s Oscar Key Sung reveals a palette of electronic production that spans between minimalist R&B (Oscar + Martin) to an unclassified genre of, let’s say, glitchy hip-hop (Brothers Hand Mirror). It’s on his debut solo EP, however, that a blended concoction of these traits are so …



Review: Rhythm Operator – No More Games EP

If classically inclined house music is your thing, then this EP on Mexican label Vicario Musique will be right up your street. Produced by Rhythm Operator, who is a little known talent from LA, it comes with three remixes that all tweak for slightly different purposes.

The bets of …



5 Years of OFF Recordings

Andre Crom’s OFF label started 5 years ago with an EP from Mirco Violi & Fabio Giannelli and has since gone on to release music from the likes of Chris Carrier, Daniel Dexter, Robosonic, Sharam Jey, Tiger Stripes, Round Table Knights and many more. To celebrate a half-decade in operation …



Review: Crowdpleaser ‘Nenekri Remixé’

DJ Crowdpleaser released his debut album back in 2011. One track on that collection, ‘NENEKRI’,  garnered serious underground plays and some stella feed back from some of the worlds top DJs including, Duke Dumont, Paul Woolford and Brodinski. Featuring unique vocals from Burkina Faso native, Wamian Kaïd, the track was …



BOTW Review: LAW – Haters & Gangsters

Lauren Holt’s debut EP as LAW, Haters & Gangsters, doesn’t end with a bang. Rather, the seven-track suite’s closer ‘OG’ culminates in an extended coo, a final breath drawn from the Edinburgh songwriter. It’s a telling sign. Over the course of Haters & Gangsters’ 22-minute …



Luca Lozano & Mr.Ho – Dobb Meep/Different Circles (Disc Over Music)

Lest you’ve not encountered its many charms yet, Disc Over Music is the new label helmed by British DJ/producer Tim Green. While the early signs were more than auspicious (not least thanks to the work of Green himself), the label’s latest party trick confirms their reputation as a label of …



Review: Fabio Effe – Pump (SSOH)

Paris based label SSOH has long been considered a bastion for upfront house music, but even by their lofty standards, the Pump EP definitely sees them break radically with tradition. The EP in question comes thanks to Italian up-and-comer Fabio Effe; an individual, it seems, whose knack for a party-starting …



EP Review: Happyness – Happyness

Oh, how misleading first impressions can be. From the moment a series of discordant coos and loosely chugging guitars ring out over ‘It’s On You’, the first cut from London trio Happyness’ self-titled debut EP, it’s clear to see what kind of ride the three-piece are going to …



EP Review: Flume & Chet Faker – Lock Jaw

The news that producer-du-jour, Flume, and alternative singer-songwriter Chet Faker were to release an EP together was not a surprise. After working together on Flume’s ‘Left Alone’, and touring for some of 2013, the two headed into the studio together for what has been described as a “four-day writing …



EP Review: Destroyer – Five Spanish Songs EP

I don’t speak a word of Spanish. To be honest I don’t speak a word of anything other than English (unless you count American, Canadian, Australian…), something of which I’m ashamed. But I’m very proud of my love for Destroyer, which is constantly rewarded with excellent music. As the …
