BOTW Premiere: Indiana – ‘Solo Dancing’ (KAOS remix)

While the original ‘Solo Dancing’ somehow made bleak Depeche Mode-like synth-pop sound like a viable, fun AND appealing proposition in today’s 90s-obsessed house/garage-centric world, and Joe Goddard’s effervescent 7-minute remix added a) more bass and b) more spontaneity to the song, the even more marvellous KAOS remix is …



BOTW Premiere: Glass Animals – ‘Gooey’ (Gilligan Moss remix)

You don’t half feel a sense of unease when listening to Gilligan Moss’ playful, verging on manic reworking of Glass Animals’ ‘Gooey’. Starting with the very last element of the original—a misleadingly ebullient, simple twinkle-twinkle xylophone melody, subsequently warped, looped and fiddled around with—Moss proceeds to …

Review: Lorenzo Bartoletti – Smokey Job EP

Italian producer Lorenzo Bartoletti has cropped up on a series of esteemed releases over the years, with the likes of Natural Rhythm, Trapez and VIVa all playing host to his inimitable and emerging talents. His debut outing for his own Alfa Romero imprint, however, might just be his best yet, …


The Saturdays Not Giving Up

Premiere: The Saturdays ‘Not Giving Up (TKNIK Radio Edit)’

The Saturdays are back, and we’ve all missed them. Following Frankie’s baby and some obvious rest-bite, the 5-piece are ready to rip up 2014 (metaphorically, obvs). Having released their fourth top ten album, Living For The Weekend, last year and a number one single under their belt with ‘What …



BOTW Premiere: Tensnake – ‘Love Sublime’ (Ewan Pearson remix)

You only have to look at the accompanying clip for Tensnake‘s Nile Rodgers and Fiora-featuring ‘Love Sublime’ to get a sense of the nocturnal themes at play in the track. The video, which focuses in on the wonder of a city’s after hours away from the club circuit, …



BOTW Premiere: Clean Bandit – ‘Rather Be’ (Royal-T Remix)

Taken in its original guise, Clean Bandit‘s ‘Rather Be‘ already had one foot firmly placed in the world of vintage, throwback garage. With his remix however, ascendant grime producer – and Rinse affiliate – Royal-T drops us in at the deep end immediately. Eschewing the celestial strings …



Track Premiere: Lover Lover – ‘Lakeshore Line’ (Bright Light Bright Light remix)

In every thing from its four-to-the-floor beat to the pulsating bass that thunders forthright throughout, Wales-via-London vocalist Bright Light Bright Light‘s remix of Lover Lover‘s ‘Lakeshore Line‘ screams of perpetual motion. It serves as a perfect extended realisation of the track’s nomadic theme, which the latter’s …



Track Premiere: Crystal Bats – ‘Falling in Love’ (Paper Crows Remix)

While Crystal Bats‘ original take on ‘Falling in Love‘ saw the electro-pop duo exploring a strain of nostalgia-laced tropicalia that evoked all the romanticism of those long summer nights, with their remix the pair’s London contemporaries Paper Crows stretch the track’s nursery rhyme simplicity into all the …



Introducing: Wayward

About halfway through our chat with Leeds-via-London production duo Wayward, the pair – when asked about an apparent increasing sense of soul in their music – tell us how they’re “just trying to make music that creates an atmosphere; that’s the over-arching theme rather than any influence of genre.”
