Phantogram – Black Out Days (Future Islands Remix)

Phantogram – Black Out Days (Future Islands Remix)

I’ve loved Phantogram since their Eyelid Movies album. Nightlife that came out in 2011 was absolutely stunning as well. This track Black Out Days, from their most recent album Voices have just been released 3 days ago as a remix by Future Islands – still retaining the melancholy of the original song, slowing it down, elevating it...



Marcel Dettmann

Marcel Dettmann

One of Ostgut Ton‘s biggest techno exports - Marcel Dettmann is making an appearance in Leeds with Surgeon again this 31st of May at Warehouse with a 3 hour set. Last time Dettmann shared the bill with Surgeon in Leeds was about 2 years ago. Be prepared to immerse yourself in total hypnotic beats. I really enjoy Dettmann’s style...



Juan Atkins

Juan Atkins

You know those artists who have been around for ages but seem to slip past you, even though they’re one of the most influential musicians of our time? That’s what happened with me and Juan Atkins. The incredibly talented 51-year-old has been going strong since the early ’80s, when it’s said that he, alongside Derrick...



Pulse & Sines

Pulse & Sines

There is really nothing else on the internet that is available for me to find out more about this guy. All I know is that he’s a producer from Greece and this is the only track I’ve chanced on by accident. Low slow beats, chilled out electronic vibes with a reassuringly deep bassline. Just beautiful:...

Holloh – Young Lord EP

Tell me what does heartbreak sound like. Drowning here, and yet thirsting for more.  Lips sealed, and hands washed clean. Nothing to hide. A whisper, the sharp gasp for breath and yet – nothing, not a sound. Tell me what does total self-destruction sound like, painting the town black, movements like fast lines in a...



Beacons Festival 2013 Was AMAZE!

Beacons Festival 2013 Was AMAZE!

Wow wow wow. Took awhile to write this because I was ill all last week but can I just say, Beacons Fest was AMAZE. How amaze? Well - The festival was way bigger, much bigger than it was last year. It was ridiculously warm and bright, clear blue skies on the first day. It was...

Marcel Fengler (Ostgut Ton / Berghain)

Marcel Fengler (Ostgut Ton / Berghain)

I have always been fascinated, obsessed almost dependent on german techno –  especially the kind that almost visualizes the grittiness of urban landscape and how man reacts, adapts, interacts with his surroundings. This urban landscape, man-made, concrete and steel crevices in between buildings and walls pulsating with the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of modern living. I’m...



Maya Jane Coles

Maya Jane Coles

Just as I thought it was going to be a quiet Easter weekend, we got this through the inbox: Maya Jane Coles. In Leeds. With Joy Orbison. Fuck. Yeah I know she’s played in Leeds many times but I have never got the opportunity to go see her. Finally, the time has come. For those of...
