Review: Boo Williams – Moving Rivers

“There is no House Music revival! It never went away, did it?” When we interviewed Bob Bhamra alias West Norwood Cassette Library last November, he expressed this sentiment as a mantra against the notion that house is somehow back.

Review: Girl Unit – Club Rez EP

“Another one I’m going to have to talk over – No IDs yet, just to say it’s new” interjected Bok Bok on the Night Slugs Rinse.fm show during August of last year, to the frustration of eager YouTube-rippers worldwide as he dropped a mysterious new cut.
