June sees yet another batch of must-have releases from Another Timbre, a label that’s dented my wallet like no other before or since. First up there’s the above, described on the AT YouTube page as follows: “Extract from ‘Chantier 1’ – a CD by Pascal Battus, Bertrand Gauguet and Eric La Casa. The CD documents […]
Worth a bit of a break from the kind of music we’d usually feature in order to share what should become everyone’s feel good hit for this summer. I never understood the reactionaries who claim that El-P can’t rap… quite frankly, this one tune has enough swagger to last a whole career. Splendid stuff.

In his own words, from the link: “The Party Van is a live sampling and performance instrument built using Max/MSP. It was programmed around the Monome 64 and Arc 2 controllers but includes mapping for an […]
Right Where I’m Sitting Now by Danmatic on Mixcloud Excellent all-vinyl mix from my Best Man and all-round best man Danny Lowe. You can download it here. Enjoy.
Well worth giving an early heads-up for this excellent forthcoming concert organised by Watchful Ear blogger and Cathnor label-runner Richard Pinnell. From his blog: “I am happy to announce a rather fine looking concert I am co-organising in Oxford on June 28th. The line up consists of three duos- Radu Malfatti and Jürg Frey, Angharad […]
