Recommended: KaraKara – Yet Another EP

Another week, another Irish producer making bleepy, buzzy electronica. Following in the footsteps of acts like Faws and Orquestra, KaraKara has caught our attention with his third release, the knowingly titled “Yet Another EP”. His track titles alone attract your attention – previous EPs “I Can’t Use Decks” and “My Laptop Just Broke” include such numbers […]

Recommended: Fatima Al-Qadiri – GSX Remixes

Last year Fatima Al Qadiri simply blew us away with her Genre Specific Experience EP on UNO NYC. Five tracks that defied expectation and offered a truly unique listening experience, it was one of our favourite releases in a year of exceptional music. When UNO announced a remix EP, to say we were excited was […]

Preview: Eliphino – VRYBDY / Don’t Make Sense

Eager fans of Eliphino have seen numerous vastly different reincarnations of the London-based musician come to life as he’s steadily explored entirely different corners of sound over the years. It’s safe to say that he’s been efficacious in pursuing all of his deviating musical endeavours. While many saw the whirlwind of support for his 2011 effort […]

Recommended: Guy Andrews – The Wait / Hands In Mine

Guy Andrews, Brighton-based producer, Truancy Volume contributor and generally funny guy has had a pretty good twelve months.

Recommended: NKC – Fading Floor / Shockout

Aside from skimpy clothes, day drinking, and road trips to the beach, summer is the much anticipated season of music festivals. It’s also the season of the anthem, as producers gear up for extensive touring and playing for hundreds of thousands of eager fans. And even though we still have to make it through another […]

Review: I:Cube – “M” Megamix

The name I:Cube might ring a bell with some of you from a remix of his track “Disco Cubizm” by a certain pair of French robots, used in their famous Essential Mix way back in 1997. Don’t get it twisted, dude has been grinding ever since with four albums, a remix collection and a shedload […]

Preview: Protect-U – Motorbike EP

It’s been a little over a year since we’ve heard anything from Protect-U, but after having a few listens to their new “Motorbike EP” on Planet Mu we’ve concluded that it was worth the wait.  The duo is made up of Mike Petillo aka Mondo, who is also one half of Future Times, and Aaron […]

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. Bhamra’s words ring true without question, but we’re certainly not the first ones to tell you […]

Recommended: Pariah – Rift EP

 Has it really been almost two years since Pariah’s last solo release?  That’s almost as hard to believe as him being only two releases deep.  He popped up on everyone’s radar with “Detroit Falls / Orpheus”, which not only cemented him as a staple in the new breed of British producers, but marked R&S’s massive […]

Their latest output is a full-length album from Danish producer Tomas Barfod, who has […]

Recommended: Last Step – Sleep

It’s not uncommon to hear musicians talk about music that came to them in their dreams. It is, however, uncommon to hear of musicians actively composing music during their period of slumber. Strange as it may seem, that is exactly how Canadaian producer Last Step, better known to most as Venetian Snares, put together his […]
