Recommended: Marina Rosenfeld – P.A. / Hard Love

What do art installations, sound system culture and Marcy Playground have in common? Not much, except maybe this record by Marina Rosenfeld. Her latest release for Australian label Room 40 heavily blurs the lines between the gallery and the club. Often Rosenfeld is on the other side of the divide, bringing her dub inspired audio […]

Recommended: Karman – 2005 Forever EP

At 19 years old, Karman released his debut EP 2005 Forever out of nowhere in late December of 2013. A young beatmaker from Beverly Hills, Karman makes melancholic dance music, or better yet, “devotional dance” as described on his bandcamp. 2005 Forever takes the misery of loneliness in the internet age and gives it rhythmic […]

Exclusive: Kozee – Let’s Ride

There’s no doubt that you’ll have read a lot about how 2013 was the year in which many genres saw their emergence/re-emergence. In some cases this will be true, but a look back at Moveltraxx’s releases suggests that there may well be heaps you’ve simply been missing out on. Taking all of your favourite genres […]

Recommended: Hotline Recordings

Hotline Recordings have steadily built their reputation as another Bristol-based bastion of quality music over the last 12 or so months, dropping a series of rock-solid club tracks across their first three releases from the likes of Kahn & Neek, Lurka, Rachael and DJ Sotofett. The clandestine outfit’s inventive approach to putting out music has […]

Recommended: Jeremiah R – The New Wave EP

It’s been said before, but 2013 was truly the year of the label. Every other week a DJ or producer announced his or her new imprint, for a multitude of reasons: for artistic autonomy, to step outside of restrictive schedules, or to bypass stylistic boundaries, self-imposed or otherwise. While Organic Analogue wasn’t one of those […]

Recommended: Motëm – Caveman in Japan

Remember that episode of the Simpsons when Homer gets obese? Calling to warn of an imminent meltdown, the operator tells him that his fingers are too fat to use the number pad. What if your fingers were too phat to operate a SP404; so fat, in fact, that you could hold the world in an […]

Recommended: My Panda Shall Fly – Higher EP

This year’s first release from the new Sonic Router imprint is an offering from My Panda Shall Fly, aka South-London based Sri Lankan Suren Seneviratne. Suren’s idiosyncratic releases have caught our eye before (and we interviewed him back when his music career was just hitting its stride a couple of years ago), but on this six track EP, entitled […]

Recommended: Sega Bodega – Song Dynasty EP

Glasgow-based Sega Bodega (who’s real name is the equally eye-catching Salvador Navarette) has been compiling quite the CV on the low. Making sense both geographically and musically, he counts Hudson Mohawke and Rustie as two of his greatest influences and his musical output straddles that same line between extra-melodic hip hop and other electronic based […]

Recommended: Visionist – M / Secrets

One of last year’s most notable developments was the continued emergence of a wave of new producers able channelling the spirit of early grime and combine it with an astute sensibility for today’s listeners. Grime’s new school excited us a great deal; so much so that we even dedicated a new mix series to championing […]

Truancy Volume 88: DJ Haus

Since his days in Hot City,  DJ Haus has continued to establish himself as a name who has his sights set firmly and only on the dancefloor – through both his productions and his Unknown to the Unknown imprint. Originally a YouTube channel (which, testament to his crazy work ethic, still uploads on a regular basis), its […]
