Almost as good as a beach packed with bikinis & pina coladas

If by chance you were unlucky enough to be the 99.99999999% of the world that missed Art Department’s set at this New Year’s BPM Festival in sun-drenched Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, we’ve got good news.

San Fran & Bristol producers team up for dirtybird's latest

Those rambunctious rabble-rousers over at dirtybird records are at it again, creating some masterful music aimed at dancefloor bedlam. San Fran’s Justin Martin teams up with Bristol’s finest, Eats Everything, on a two-track EP titled Hello Mr. Jello, due March 31st on dirtybird. We were big fans of both Justin Martin’s Jungle Mix Winter 2012 drum & bass [...]

In other words, superb underground house.  If [...]


The dubstep pioneer known as Skream (aka Oliver Jones) recently disavowed the genre he built, saying he had played his last dubstep DJ set “until further notice”. While this is a stake through the heart of old school dubstep fans, it seems the move was imminent after the genre has moved from subtle, slow bass [...]


What are your feelings on Daft Punk’s massively (over) hyped long play Random Access Memories? While it’s a solid piece of work with moments of brilliant production (e.g. “Contact”), it’s clear that it lacks the immortality of Homework. Chilean/American tech house phenom Nicolas Jaar seems to agree. He’s collaborated with Dave Harrington on a series [...]
