Introducing: DrDr

2012 was, without doubt, a big year for Brighton’s DrDr. Across the last 12 months, the trio – comprised of producers Chris Campbell and Joe Woods, and vocalist Donna Curson – remixed some of the biggest names around in the form of Major Lazer, The xx and Kissy …



Album Review: Duologue – Song and Dance

With a much delayed rise to (relative) prominence via the twin evils of reality TV (Road to V) and the third series of Skins, London five-piece Duologue have certainly taken their time with their debut album – I mean, Skins was almost four years ago. This begs …

Album Review: Ulrich Schnauss – A Long Way To Fall

Something disturbingly mathematical this way comes. Ethereal break-beat and rushing saccharine shoegaze of this magnitude is no accident. This record has been scientifically manufactured; a thousand electronic scrawls condensed into a sonic torrent of gigabytes and nanoseconds, orchestrated through a million synthesizers, levers, pedals and switches, magnified and purified and …



Album Review: Toro y Moi – Anything In Return

Toro y Moi, AKA Chazwick Bundick, emerged with his debut album Causers Of This in 2010. Despite being pretty damn great, I dismissed it as tagging onto the indie electro trend of the time and dismissed it as part of the hype genre that would fall by the wayside within …



Album Review: Inc. – No World

It feels strange to be saying this in November (and to have been saying it for months): but I promise that No World is one of the best albums of 2013. On No World, the brothers Aged (Andrew and Daniel) who constitute inc. make good the promise shown by …

Tips For 2013 Advent #13: King Krule

We first came across King Krule (namesake of Archy Marshall) last year and were totally shocked into amazement. His deep bass voice mixed with experimental sombre production, combined with the knowledge that he’s seventeen and the visual of his ghostly, skeletal frame with fiery red hair, is a stunning series …

Tips For 2013 Advent #8: Syron

We first cottoned onto Daisy Syron Russell when her delectable vocal featured alongside that of MNEK in Rudimental’s track ‘Spoons’ back in February. We’d been chasing her ever since and finally got a chance to interview her for Issue 59 of our magazine. After releasing ‘Breaking’ on Black …

BOTW Interview: Stubborn Heart

We talked to our BOTW, Stubborn Heart, about their album, Northern Soul, and the year in music.

Can you talk a bit through the recording process of the album, seeing as I consists pretty much electronic/synthesized production?
We made the album using Logic on Ben’s Mac, a tiny keyboard, and …

Tips For 2013 Advent #5: AlunaGeorge

AlunaGeorge have been around for a couple of years now, but since they were picked up by Island Records earlier in 2012 people have been paying more attention to their original take on modern RnB. Thanks to George’s bloody awesome production skills and Aluna’s unique, otherworldly vocals, the duo have …



BOTW Album Review: Stubborn Heart – Stubborn Heart

It’s hard to imagine an album like Stubborn Heart – an eponymous debut full-length from the electronic duo – coming from anywhere other than London. The soul-infused, post-dubstep terrain traversed by the record’s ten tracks feels symbiotically linked to the city that birthed it; clearly informed by contemporaries such as …
