Starchildluke – Boas Festas

An alternative Christmas beat tape by Starchildluke with a worthy cause attached. This is my album; I am Starchildluke. I refrain from promoting my music too much on the site but I thought this was relevant for two reasons: It’s for Christmas It has samples in it It came about while I was on holiday in Lisbon in November (hence the name). I got into…

Interview: Imperial

Imperial is the first guest in our new mini interview series. It’s difficult to find a balance between long form and short form writing. Long form is extensive but takes time to read. Short form is quick to absorb but might not offer as much in comparison. We’ll never cease long form content but we appreciate readers might not have as much time to spend….

Experimental electronic artist Ikuko Morozumi releases her latest EP, Null, with ID Spectral.

My Favourite Jamiroquai Albums [RANKED]

I ranked my favourite Jamiroquai albums in reverse order for you to debate or agree with.

I was tempted to do the same for Jamiroquai but decided against it. And rather than have a…

Leftover Links #21: Rappers’ Delight

This edition of Leftover Links is all about the rappers. We get so many submissions every day, it’s not possible to get to them all as and when they come through. That means we miss things and get to them late. A bit like when you’re stuck for something to eat and have nothing substantial in, you put together a mish-mash concoction. And then it…

VIDEO: Emma-Jean Thackray – Make Do

Emma-Jean Thackray premieres the first video from her new EP. I listened through Emma-Jean Thackray’s EP Ley Lines a couple of Sundays ago and it was time well spent. Accentuating that is the first video from the EP for Make Do. Isolde Penwarden directed the visuals with an all-female team starring actress and choreographer Mela Murder. It’s shot in a single take with choreography from Murder and a…
