WE SWOONED for “Metal Man”, a dusky tale of yearning from former Clayhill quiet songwriting genius Ted Barnes featuring the vocal talents of Brighton folkie Kristin McClement a month back now when we premiered it; and now Ted’s lovely album 17 Postcards is out in the world, he’s offered that track up for a remix …

WITH their deliciously tempting new remix album GGP/RMX out in a month’s time, GoGo Penguin are just keeping them comin’; following the deeply energised MachineDrum retake on “Atomised” and Squarepusher’s stealthily head-melting inversion of “F Major Pixie”, the Mancunian trio have just dropped the blissful dream of “Totem”, as overseen by James Holden. Come listen …

Earlier this month, psych rock band Japanese Television released an EP of remixes of their much lauded 2020 EP entitled ‘III‘. The band collaborated with UK producers James Lavelle’s UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey, James Welsh, Space Age Freak Out, and International Teachers of Pop for the EP.

IT WAS only a month back that we covered the third single drop from rather obscenely talented upcoming Glasgow tunesmith Jeshua, “IDK”; and it was another fine entry in his fledgling catalogue. I mean, he’s been releasing tunes for such a short length of time. And they’re all effortlessly cracking. When “IDK” first came out, …

They’ve taken the …

NIKLAS PASCHBURG is a modern compositional pianist and composer who’s released two rather fine albums for 7K!, K7!’s mirror-image boutique ambient label, namely Oceanic and Svalbard.
