TUSH; who they? You enquire, entirely within your remit. Well, if the groove is in you, they’re someone whose acquaintance you should make forthwith. Coming from the dancefloors of Toronto with a love of disco, soul, electro, Nineties’ house and more, the twin pillars of Tush are the dulcet vocal talents of Kamilah Apong and Jamie Kidd. They’ve …

Unfathomably, in our particular tangent of reality that hasn’t …

WILL HOLLAND, the Brooklyn-based, British-born musician who dazzles us with his absolute nous in a array of deeply danceable styles, has announced a twin celebration for the first anniversary of his imprint, Selva Records.

MORT GARSON is a name that’s intoned with due gravity by those who know. Hailing from Canada with an interest of the sounds of early circuitry-based music and a penchant for conceptual albums – concerning witchcraft, the zodiac, even music to help plants grow: to the sort of people you find in the kitchen bathtub …
