Temporary Trax: CYPHR – Metanoia

The second in the Temporary Trax series comes in the form of “Metanoia” by CYPHR and it couldn’t be much further from the bright funk of the first. Most recently, the Her Records mainstay has drawn heavy doses of critical acclaim for his 6 track EP “Ekleipsis”. Much like that EP, “Metanoia” is a showcase […]

Truancy Volume 92: Local Action

We recently sat down for a lengthy Skype chat with Tom Lea, head of the peerless Local Action record label. There’s no one out there doing what they do, perfectly bisecting the spectrum of grime and garage. We talked early beginnings, the various directions the label has taken, the parties they’ve thrown (especially their epic […]

Introducing: LinG

We’ve something special here. Liverpool artist LinG, who’s also a member of three-piece Ninetails, recently put out the Anthracite EP on Get Some. It’s an EP that mixes the sound of classic grime and garage with organic, filtered noise, distilled through the heavy machinery of the industrial north. To coincide with Anthracite he’s given us […]

Truancy Volume 91: Timbah

We’ve been fans of Timbah ever since his first EP Can’t Love Without You. Two long, quiet years have passed since that offering which we called “like being served a plate full of tropical fruit after a decade of microwaved Supernoodles” but now he’s back on the warpath. His new EP Flow Poke, again out on Bad Taste Records, embraces […]

Truancy Volume 89: Avalon Emerson

Our 89th Truancy Volume comes from San Fransisco native Avalon Emerson, who’s just put out her debut release on Icee Hot. “Pressure/Quoi!“ is a full-on assault, combining tough beats and frivolous samples. Her mix for us, meanwhile, throws together classic rave anthems and more recent house jaunts, all in the name of the party. We […]

Introducing: Talbot Fade

Talbot Fade is the musical project of a guy who is part of the YRZ collective. Describing his music is a challenge as simple words don’t cover the depth of emotion inherent in his tracks. Ambient interludes inspired by periods of heartache and introspection, ghostly pianos sitting over fog-like drones – evocative and resonant of […]

Truancy Volume 87: Opal Block

Opal Block, a self-confessed 1992 obsessive trapped in 2013, has found a home for his first full-length release in Jon Phonics’ Astral Black imprint. Having released music from Phonics and Jaisu, and with a beat tape from Inkke in the works, the label knows a thing or two about how to bridge the gap between […]

Five Mixes Are Better Than One Pt. XIX

Matthew Kent’s Blowing Up The Workshop mix series is a riveting mix series – rather than easy, instant mix after mix after mix after mix gratification, the project deviates from the norm of intensive publicity and has a more focused selection of broadcasts who are often focused in their own turn. From commissioned work, sounds from ancient keyboards […]
