Ikuko Morozumi – Null

Experimental electronic artist Ikuko Morozumi releases her latest EP, Null, with ID Spectral. The summer debate of what constituted an album thanks to K*nye’s slew of mediocre offerings may have died down but Ikuko Morozumi is far removed from that nonsense. Her new EP, entitled Null, consists of two tracks and clocks in at just over 6 minutes. The experimental musician maintains her “industrial aesthetic”…

My Favourite Jamiroquai Albums [RANKED]

I ranked my favourite Jamiroquai albums in reverse order for you to debate or agree with. My list of best to worst Knxwledge albums was tongue in cheek but it appears people are taking it seriously enough to search for his best albums and finding the article. I was tempted to do the same for Jamiroquai but decided against it. And rather than have a…

You’ve gotta love a sample showcase and SAMPLE RECOVERY does precisely that. This edition focusses on Justice’s debut, †. I’m on a heavy Justice tip at the moment as I look for inspiration for my new album. Cross (†) is an album I’ve regularly played since I first heard it in 2009. During my research, I found this incredible video on YouTube by an uploader called ArctiliX….

Sit back and relax to the unique tones of Claire Courchene and her upcoming EP, Parallax. The last time I heard the word parallax, I was researching names for one of my own albums. The word has meanings in mathematics and science and that ties in thematically with Claire Courchene’s music. She’s a classically trained cellist living in København and she has lent her multi-instrumental…

The band shot footage of a live performance of new single “Blinded”, filmed at Small Seeds in Huddersfield. The song itself is a beautiful downtempo number with a delicate arrangement. Between the emotive…
