Sunday’s Best Pt. LI

It’s amazing that there are legends walking among us today. It’s astonishing that a Theo Parrish record on his own label can fly slightly under the radar when music appears to be at its most available. It’s astounding that twenty years into the game, the Detroit luminary would continue to blow us away with his […]

Les Graciés is a collaboration between Gaël Segalen of IhearU and Eric Douglas Porter of Afrikan Sciences. Following several years of musical exploration and recording, they released their debut LP Low Doses for Scotland’s Firecracker label in 2016. Put simply, their music is a fascinating melange of sound art and techno, moving beyond a collision […]

Truancy Volume 183: Ahadadream

A few months ago we asked some questions to London-based producer and DJ, Ahadadream, just as he got set to drop the second release on his own label More Time. We discussed his inspirations and mantras, his dream Boiler Room lineup and how he went about producing the tracks for that very second EP. Titled Movements, we described it as a […]

Sunday’s Best Pt. XLIX

Despite the rich musical history of Washington, DC, its neighboring suburbs aren’t the first places that spring to mind when it comes to thriving house and techno scenes. But with labels like 3024, Future Times and 1432 R, crews such as TNX and Rush Plus, and parties by ROAM and SEQUENCE, the District at-large continues […]

Sunday’s Best Pt. XLVIII

With a couple of releases on Local Action already under his belt, NTS Manchester’s Finn has launched his own label, 2 B REAL (which we’ve been reliably informed is named after this DJ Deeon classic). Setting out with the sole purpose of creating a platform for fun dance records, he’s done just that with “Late […]

Championed by the likes of Ben UFO, Jane Fitz, Steve Davis, Tasker and Lee Gamble (the latter two having […]

Recommended: Mr. Mitch – Devout

The instrumental grime scene has acted as a hot bed for producers to splinter off from the norm and evolve their sounds into abstract forms. Slackk is one of them, and the dancefloor mutations from the likes of Mumdance and the Different Circles crew only serve to back this up further. Mr. Mitch is a […]

Following on from previous records by the likes of Prettybwoy, Howie Lee and Damacha, this EP is a continuation of output from artists based in East Asia producing a vast array of club-friendly music.

Sunday’s Best Pt. XLV

Released this month via San Francisco’s Honey Soundsystem, Octo Octa’s second album, titled Where Are We Going?, begins in a sunlit daze. Like blinking awake from a too-real dream, there’s a sense of confusion and wonder to the LP’s opening seconds. This nervous energy flutters throughout “Where Are We Going? Pt. 1”, but is offset […]

Recommended: Sega Bodega – Ess B

For a producer of Sega Bodega’s ilk, a release on Crazylegs seems like a logical step. A lot of music that straddles the club and the more progressive side of electronic music can often feel a bit tired, as some producers tend to make use of dissonance and heavy tones to package something that’s supposed […]

Truancy Volume 169: Apeiron Crew

Born out of the closure of Copenhagen based nightclub Dunkel, Apeiron started as a means of throwing parties to help enrich the community of promoters that had started to shape the city and their local scene. Throwing parties quickly evolved into being booked to play them, with their eclectic back-to-back sets taking them outside of […]

Sunday’s Best Pt. XLIV

Three decades on from the genre’s initial explosion, acid rarely fails to move dancefloors. The label arm of NY clubbing institution the Bunker shines, beacon-like, as a home for fresh acid house. For their next release, ex-LWE writer Justin Cudmore presents the Forget It EP, a collection of four heady club tracks. Its title track […]
