Remember when central Florida ruled the dance scene with an ecstasy-laced Mickey Mouse glove? Don’t lie, most people don’t either. But it happened. Orlando and Tampa for a brief, delicious, 8-up moment ruled the underground dancefloor with a distinct sound that could only be identified as “Funky Breaks”, aka Florida Breaks. Hard to believe that […]

The aptly named Cosby is a band made up of the Cosby brothers: Chris Cosby on keys/synth vox and Chip Cosby on guitar/vox with friend Mike Levinson on drums/percussion. Formed in Richmond, VA in the winter of 2012 (what a dark place it was) they managed to create a musical vision of dreamy fizz, a soda can of cosmic synth pop. “Heartracer” is the first single from their yet-unnamed […]


Continuing the release of the Wu Tang Clan’s new album A Better Tomorrow (not to be confused with their other new album coming soon, but just for one person), the Wu has dropped a video to accompany the eponymous single. Perhaps related to the group’s long maturation as both artists and citizens, or simply the needs of the […]


We’ve covered many of Ninja Tunes’ Solid Steel Radio shows and podcasts over the years, because frankly the Ninja Tune team is peerless. Everything from their tribute to De La Soul’s legendary 3 Feet High and Rising to Herbaliser’s War Of The Worlds mixtape to their 25th anniversary Genesis of Coldcut recap, the team always puts out immaculately conceived and executed musical […]


In 2008 I was sent by the now-defunct BPM magazine to Berlin and Vienna to document the emerging Future Bass movement percolating from the dank basements of those Teutonic capitals. While Modeselektor proved to be the most successful of all the acts from that scene, many were making amazing music — including Jahcoozi, The Tape, Chris Deluca vs […]
