Interview: Will Saul & October

UK-based house label Aus Music are preparing their 100th release this July.  The label have released zeitgeist-defining EPs by acts like Midland, George Fitzgerald and Bicep before their names became ubiquitous with the contemporary scene. The feat is even more impressive considering it means they have roughly put out a record a month for a decade […]

Sunday’s Best Pt. XXXVII

Kablam’s debut EP for Berlin’s party-cum-label Janus is a haunting set of twisted, frantic club music. Happily perched at the intersection of ASMR, hardstyle and choral music, Furiosa slams together various body-music herstories. It brings to mind the militant rigidity of the hakken alongside the sensual tingles of a whisper. The EP surveys the sonic […]

Premiere: 2030 – In Aeternum (Luke Hess Remix)

A man has many names. 2030 is just one of them. Under this alias, Nico Campanella has released a cassette album as well as a recent 12″ on Clone, and now he’s landed on Black Crow with a super package of nostalgia-inducing electro backed with some stellar remixes. “In Aeternum” is a gorgeous cut, breathy synths leading the way down […]

Premiere: Fox – I Swear

Fox has been recording music and MCing in Manchester and beyond for longer than most of us at Truants have been allowed to venture outside the mansion. He’s prolific and ubiquitous. Chances are, if you’ve spent any length of time living in the North of England’s premier city over the last decade or more, then you’ll […]

Interview: Space Dimension Controller

We’ve been fans of Space Dimension Controller from the start, featuring him way back in the (relative) infancy of both our own blog and his career in early 2011. Since then he’s traversed worlds with his mind-expanding releases for R&S, focused on the floor with 12″s for Clone, and right now he’s preparing the release of […]

Recommended: Klara Lewis – Too

Klara Lewis makes strange, dark music. It’s full of unnerving, swollen sounds, and is laced with electronic pulses that might seem to belong in the club, but the layers that surround such beats preclude them from such base functionality. Indeed, interviewing Lewis for The Quietus, Matthew Kent notes that her music seems caught in a “between” place, referring at […]
