Recommended: Huerco S. – Apheleia’s Theme

It’s no secret we’re fans of Huerco S., so much so we asked him to mix Truancy Volume 56. With musical excursions on Wicked Bass, Opal Tapes, and Anthony Naples’ fledgling imprint, Proibito we’re not the only ones to take notice. In the last two years the Kansas City based producer has synthesized his scuzzy beats […]

Interview: Berlin Community Radio

London has NTS, New York has WYNU, Los Angeles has Dublab, Glasgow has Subcity Radio, Amsterdam has Red Light Radio and Berlin has…? Until recently there as been no Berlin based community radio similar to the stations just mentioned which is very surprising considering the reputation of its music scene and the amount of talented and […]

Recommended: Various Artists – The Health of the Oceans

When you think about electronic music in Glasgow, you think of Hudson Mohawke or Sub Club – titans in their respective fields who have gone on to become ambassadors for the city’s music scene. The industry’s gaze has rested squarely on Glasgow since the rise of the LuckyMe and Numbers collectives, a gaze which seeks […]

Recommended: Fuewa – Birth Palace

Fuewa is the new project from Dorset native Chris Sallows, who’s previously released for Svetlana Industries as Microburst. His work under that name was fuzzy yet structured dancefloor music, combining crisp percussion and basslines with hazy atmospherics and found sounds. The “Birth Palace” EP, the fifth release on Sonic Router Records, sees him eschew any […]

Recommended: Leon Vynehall – Brother / Sister

Will Saul’s Aus Music label continues to focus on experimental yet danceable interpretations of house, techno, electro and dub. Such an approach makes Aus a logical home for a talent such as Leon Vynehall, so it comes as no surprise to see the Brighton producer’s latest release come courtesy of the illustrious imprint. Vynehall is a […]

Download: Spooky – Party Package Vol. 1 & 2

What gets us coming back to grime every time is its sense of melody. When rhythm or timbre are the pursuit of much dance music, melody can be swamped, or indeed purposefully neglected in favour of different, more functional elements of music. Grime functions differently in this way, it’s one of the few dance genres […]

“To me Broadcast was mainly glass and metal, large structures, the reverberant sounds of an empty city, most of it set at night. This one felt more like a view of that city from the surrounding dessert obscured by a red fog, with some day trips to the coast line.” So says Hyetal of his […]

Recommended: Musk – Take Me Higher / A Visible Action Of Life

Berlin duo Musk debuted recently with a handful of self released twelves. Their initial cuts trafficked in raw disco but this latest record skips a little farther down the timeline, landing right in the second summer of love. While their releases are currently only available on vinyl (with great art to boot), Musk know the […]

Interview: DjRUM

We’ve been huge fans of DjRUM since he came into our world nearly two years ago. After several releases and remixes, he’s taken the leap to album territory with the release of “Seven Lies”, his first LP. A nine-track, 50-minute affair, it covers all the ground you’d expect from him after his stellar EPs and […]

Recommended: j.Faraday – Beat Tape #1

If you paid any attention to our 61st Truancy Volume earlier this year from Kid Smpl, you may recall a short, fleeting track stuck in between Burial and Jhene Aiko by one Javier Escareno. The stuttering hi-hats and hushed keys lasted for but a minute, but the whole Truants crew immediately wondered when we’d hear more from […]
