She Was Coloured In

Dublin/Wicklow duo Solar Bears performed their first live show at Rough Trade London recently. You can catch the performance below and the lads play the Forbidden Fruit Festival in Dublin on the June bank holiday weekend.

The Look

Great new e.p from Jacques Greene on LuckyMe which is well worth a purchase. The highlight for myself is the Mark Flash UR Remix. You can hear it below..


I almost exploded with excitement when I heard Burial was releasing new material. Collab work with Four Tet and Thom Yorke and a new e.p on Hyperdub. Sounds ace....


Japanse TV

Nothing to do with the tragic events that have unfolded in Japan although it does bear mention. These guys started following me on Soundcloud and I am loving all the stuff they have up on their page. This mix in particular but I would highly advise checking them out for yourself.

Highly Recommended. Tracklist here


Mr Oizo

Trousers that stayed creased launched Mr Oizo. Listening back to this mix the French swagger and laissez faire attitude is clear with each track somehow managing to roll into the next. Theres a very fine line between someone putting on a crap performance and someone who manages to pull off blending music questionably by changing tempos and momentum but still keeping the energy levels up. If you can look past the Justice track and a few others this mix is full of great music and well worth a listen.

His first love of course was photography and film and his new offering Rubber, about a tyre that comes to life and starts murdering people, is out soon. You can get a peak and listen to some of the mans thoughts on it over here.
