I’ve been a big fan of German techno producer Gabriel Ananda for a while and play his tunes in my DJ sets quite often. I admire his music and after I watched this video, I am now in admiration of his lifestyle as well. It was great have an insight into this talented producer’s world and hear how… Read More Hearing Gabriel Ananda
Very few records hit me this hard the first time around. LTO‘s absolutely gorgeous No Pasa Nada EP is one of them. The Ransom Note gets it right here, it “mixes organic and mechanic sounds together, and melds all sorts of genres as diverse as dubstep, post-rock and modern classical music, a style that no-one else… Read More Get To Know: LTO

His latest offering came in the form of a dark and emotional electronic number with a video to match. Although… Read More Theatre of Delays

And the reason is Jack Tatum, aka Wild Nothing. I am supposed to interview him before his London show at… Read More Here comes “the snob!”

There hasn’t been one review which doesn’t mention his band. It’s apparent that he’s tired of the never-ending comparisons, particularly that of Pitchfork’s which claims that Banks sounds best when he’s… Read More Dreams, shadows and light…
Like them or not, there is no denying that Kaiser Chiefs are among the best live acts around. I have seen them three times, interviewed them as much. (Once for Billboard, twice for NTV). Ricky Wilson is just a beast onstage. He goes wild and makes the crowd go even wilder. The band just never… Read More Third time’s not the charm with Kaiser Chiefs!
