You can have all matter of insanity going on in a track but when i get a cymbal after the kick then i feel like im hopping into a lovely warm familiar bath...

    Hypnagogic pop

    yeah seems there a bit too much of a LOL hipsters vibe going on here. Theres a clear line between the guys with the ideas and the shit bands looking for the next big post animal collective sound. That aside, the new James ferraro record 'Feed me' is amazing. Like eating mushrooms grown in an...

    Disco Ragas house music from Bombay

    i had similar doubts about the authenticity of this brilliant compilation of early 80s electronic music from east germany, sounded too crisp. I suppose a good remaster job counts for a lot

    House 09!

    yeah kassem mosse is one of the best producers out there at the minute. If you are liking that raw sound check out levon vincent, some of the best deep house out there that is at times as chilly and bleak as pan sonic but relentlessly groovy. His recent mike dehnert mix is fantastic
