Recommended: Scuba – The Hope (Recondite Remixes)

There’s no denying that Scuba’s “Personality” was a milestone not only for the man himself, but also for Hotflush Recordings. In a way it completed the label’s transformation from fringe dubstep label to purveyors of techno, garage influenced house and everything in between. Keeping in line with their recent output they’ve enlisted Recondite, whose “On […]

Chronicles: Honey Cocaine – 90’s Gold

We love to blame music platforms for enthusing a dangerously fast-spinning carousel of hype and short-lived careers by the use of the cyberspace and its social networks.

Stream: Courtship – The People Around You

Courtship, Patric Fallon’s playful side-project for writing sluggish, lo-fi pop music, has been unusually silent over the last six months and in a digital world where people move from project to project at an unholy rate this may have led some to believe it had reached its end.
