Recommended: Pedestrian – Kalakuta / Ndizi

Sometimes an act’s nom de plume can work perfectly, aptly summing up their style and reputation in three words or fewer. This isn’t the case with Pedestrian. His “Hei Poa” release on Push Run showcased muffled terror and beautiful melody, “Hoyle Road”, replete with his own Sampha-esque vocals, was overflowing with shimmering emotion. His initial […]

Recommended: Snow Ghosts – A Small Murmuration

When a legendary nightclub starts a new record label, it might be easy to assume that its output will be solely the stuff of late-night parties and dark, after-hours vibes. Not so with Houndstooth, the offshoot from London’s fabric. While its releases to date, coming from the likes of Call Super, _Unsubscribe_ and House of […]

Paul Woolford has no fear; this is a man who simultaneously has one of Ibiza’s tunes of the summer and spends his free time experimenting with rave influenced sounds of nineties. Not to mention, he is responsible for one of the noughties’ most pulsating and noise-laden big room tracks, “Erotic Discourse”. Last March he christened […]

Innervisions certainly know a thing or two about good house records. Since co-founders Dixon and Âme began the label as an offshoot of their popular Berlin club night “Innercity” back in 2005, a steady output of consistently excellent music has seen Innervisions become one of the leading purveyors of quality house and techno. The latest […]

While at the moment new labels seem to be popping up left, right, and centre, quite a few of them will undoubtedly be slipping through our pretty wide-cast musical net. Not Hadal, however. When one of the Hessle Audio boys announces something new, we here at the Truants mansion sit with our ears pricked and our headphones […]

Truancy Volume 73: Jazz Neversleeps

With only two releases to his name Belgian producer Jazz Neversleeps isn’t breaking any world records, however he is pouring his energy into jazz influenced and hip-hop informed house music. Listening to a track like “Live in Maredsous” demonstrates the ease at which he appropriates samples and flips them into melodic gems. Aside from writing […]

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 […]

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 […]
