HOW THE hourglass casts its sand; believe it or not, and I’m struggling with this, 2021 actually marks 30 years – 30! – of releases from Portland, Oregon’s Kill Rock Stars. I ain’t countin’ no more. Special releases and fun things are promised all year from the label that began back in ’91 with releases …

Mark Archer (Altern 8, Nexus 21, Slo Moshun) brings together a collection of tracks released over the past twelve years on various labels. A superb collection of House/Acid/Techno quality, that only a oldskool veteran DJ/Producer could create. You know the deal, your either in the know, or your not. Over the last couple of decades, …

Meghna Mitra releases the most sublime music under her name Meghna and her new single ‘My DNA’ belies her youth with its world weary tones and chilling themes. Over a sparse trip-hop electronic beat, Meghna’s evocative vocals recount the experiences of her Indian parents and grandparents and the horrors and realties of a life in …

Drawing on inspiration and experience from a wide range of scenes including UK Bass, Breaks, Jungle, Electro, Garage, and more, Debasser follows up singles ‘Separation Anxiety’ and ‘Bad Behaviour’ with his second long-player ‘The Invitations are Real, The Party is Not’ via his WIDE Records label. Active throughout the early 000’s on labels such as …

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 …

BRIGHTON’S cool groovers Fujiya & Miyagi used what we can now refer to as period of history known as Lockdown One wisely, and kept on creating. They dug back into the archives, blowing the dust from abandoned hard drives and found a fragment of an idea dating all the way back to 2000. Socially distanced …

LET there be no doubt: Sneaks, known to friends and family as Eva Moolchan, is COOL.  Last year’s Highway Hypnosis album for Merge wended through seductive, deconstructed electro; leftfield, whispered lofi soul with an eerie undertow; almost nursery-rhyme incantations, stripped back grooves. I mean, she wears yellow Cons too. This a woman you can trust …

THE SPHERE of dance music is one of constant, healthy cross-fertilisation and contrast, of new sounds arising. But when Warp’s leftfield hiphop and breaks reinventor Hudson Mohawke began working with Canadian electroclash hit-scorer Tiga, even the latter had to admit it looked a stretch. He said that it “seems kind of unlikely on paper, but …

Out right now is the new single from live-electro duo KIDSØ, out via Springstoff. It’s the title track of the German duo’s forthcoming album, out later in the year, and features African rhythms and a childrens choir. The band shared a little about the journey behind creating the track, saying: “The single ‘Childhood’ is the …

Venezuelan artist, singer, DJ, performer and composer Arca has returned with anew album KiCk i, out via XL Recordings on June 26th. She’s roped in stellar collaborators for the album including Björk, Rosalia, Shygirl and SOPHIE, But don’t expect an album that follows one path – “I don’t want to be tied to one genre,” Arca explains. …
