Truancy Volume 106: Huntleys + Palmers

Celebrating its seventh birthday this December, Huntleys + Palmers is a record label and club series that never strays far from the Truants radar. Moving between Glasgow and London, and headed up by Andrew Thomson, it has slowly become a cult institution, bringing the most interesting strains of electronic music to the fore. Their afro-futurist Highlife […]

Truancy Volume 98: Beneath

Another mad one for you: Truancy Volume 98 comes courtesy of Beneath. The depth and weight of Beneath’s output – initially released on his own white label No Symbols – always has us queuing up for more damage, and he’s found himself in the position of truly being a favourite of critics and punters alike. His […]

Recommended: My Panda Shall Fly – Higher EP

This year’s first release from the new Sonic Router imprint is an offering from My Panda Shall Fly, aka South-London based Sri Lankan Suren Seneviratne. Suren’s idiosyncratic releases have caught our eye before (and we interviewed him back when his music career was just hitting its stride a couple of years ago), but on this six track EP, entitled […]

Recommended: Raw M.T. – Raw Music Theory

Italian producer Raw M.T’s self-titled EP, set for release at the end of the month on Ukrainian label Wicked Bass, comprises four serious selections.

Brooklyn’s Fifth Wall, run by Hound Scales and Divvorce, have taken it upon themselves to release the debut EP from Unklone, an alias for a somewhat mysterious Leeds-based producer who’s been very busy in the studio recently. “Designated #41” is just under half an hour of techno productions, lead by the wonderful “Tetsuo”, which rightfully […]

Recommended: Untzz – BDOH001

Another day, another label, right? You’ll hear a lot of heads, old and young, moaning about the over-saturation of the market, complaining about the proliferation of record labels run by just-come young guns looking to make quick cash money. Let yourself get comfortable in that state of smug knowledge b2b overstated ennui, and you might […]

Recommended: DJ F – Transformación EP

We’re at the end of the first month of 2013, and for some of us here at Truants HQ it was a slightly hectic one to say the least. Now that we’ve sobered up and started meeting deadlines again, we’re on the lookout for sounds that soothe our ears, minds and bodies. “Transformación“, the latest […]

Recommended: Clouds – Tannhauser Acid Works Pt. 1

It seems you can never have enough fresh Scottish talent, as this EP by Clouds testifies. The duo have been pretty busy over the past few years, releasing on Fake Blood’s Blood Music and Tiga’s Turbo Recordings. They’ve remixed everyone from the likes of Boys Noize and Brodinski to Erol Alkan himself, but when it […]

One On One Vol. V: Oni Ayhun – OAR003-B

“Drink in spectacular canyon vistas. Watch elk, deer, bighorn sheep and ranchers at work in this rugged habitat. Enjoy the relaxed pace of a free-flowing river with few rapids, stunning scenery, interesting geology and rich natural history.” This is a mere sample of Oni Ayhun‘s lengthy description of the track we’ve chosen as our latest […]
