Recommended: Stroboscopic Artefacts – Stellate 2

Supporters who spend their money on music often find themselves explaining to others why they buy music. We know very well that we can spend our whole lives listening to a lot of good music without ever having to pay for any of it. We sometimes do have to ask ourselves why we really buy […]

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. Thankfully this is not true, Fallon is planning to give […]

We wish it was possible to package up whatever it is about California that’s been steady bringing out some of our favourite American music as of late. If any San Franciscans or Los Angeles natives want to let us in on what makes certain West Coast members of the Friends of Friends or WeDidIt crews […]

Recommended: Kevin Eames – The Eddie Willers EP

Last December after letting loose a few cheeky demos on his Soundcloud Kevin Eames released a free collaborative LP, “Bricks”, with one of Canada’s best-kept secrets Prison Garde. The result of multiple jam sessions in their studio, they produced an album of unfiltered, no frills house music complete with sharp basslines and classic drum machines.  […]

Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artefacts has put us on to a lot of new music since its establishment in 2009.

Recommended: Dynooo – De Vlindermes

Dynooo is an enigmatic figure in the Belgian beat music underground. His Twitter features a stream of rather incoherent information and his Tumblr shows numerous low-resolution snapshots of, well, things. He preaches triviality: while others use social networks to promote themselves, Dynooo occupies these structures ad absurdum. Moreover, with the excess of pointless tweets and washed out […]

R&S just keep them coming. The latest signing to one of our favourite labels is the New York duo Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi, who go by the moniker Teengirl Fantasy. These two gentlemen are making techno and house with an analogue approach and a nonconformist mentality, and when we say that they’ve caught our attention, we […]

What do you get when you cross a pet cat named Fudge and Larry Heard? That, my friends, would be the work of Edinburgh based producer Gavin Sutherland who is also known by his alias Fudge Fingas. Having played the keyboard for the likes of Carl Craig and Plastic Avengers in his early years, the man […]

Recommended: BD1982 – Iron Trees EP

BD1982 has always been in a league of his own, channeling diverse and disparate musical influences through a left-field creative filter to produce a finished product that is simultaneously exploratory yet cohesive, boundary-pushing but with a familiar feel. The producer, born Brian Durr, co-runs Japanese label Diskotopia – which has been behind incredible releases from […]

Recommended: George Fitzgerald – Child EP

When we heard rumours of a new George Fitzgerald EP coming our way this June, we expected his usual fare – incredibly catchy melodies and some of the easiest to digest danceable music out there, a perfect example of an artist exploring a delicate mélange. He simultaneously treads the sweet spot right between house and […]

Preview: Charo – Floating Free

One of the guys behind WotNot, Charo, is making his debut on the label next month and for the most part it’s left-field pop music.  These are the same people behind Deft’s well-received “Clotting EP“, which treaded the ground between some of LA beat material and synth-pop. Knowing that they gravitate towards trippy beat-driven material, […]
