The hills glowed like purple amethyst;
the sky glowed topaz and vermillion colours.
I never saw a finer screen than Pentland.”         

A few post’s ago we put up a TPA mix by Chris Raeburn aka Pentland. We mentioned circuit bending and taste: here are the results. The first track to go up with an enigmatic Pieross, this is:

 ‘Varied, deadly, minimalist to contemplative, slower House.’  

We’re not into this because he’s an associate, we’re into it because its actually good. Smoked out, swirling pads and gentle arps that will tickle your fancy. As usual follow and like Pentland’s new facebook page for more of the same and be sure to check Moskalus‘ youtube channel for more LoFi visual gold.

Friday night was a ripper. Thanks to all that came down danced and talked shite to each other. Follow the links and check the quality gear that Rohan has out there already. He also mixed with us on our radio show prior to the party, this will be available shortly. More events in the pipeline.

“Having recently made the jump from Melbourne to London, Rohan Bell Towers hasn’t wasted anytime making an impression. After releasing two records on Munich imprint Public Possession, delivering an impeccable Juno Plus Podcast and just partaking in the mandatory Boiler Room mix we are in no doubt that Bell Towers is more than qualified to bring the heat.”

In his own words “I’ll be hitting L Town’s airwaves tomorrow night playing backto back with Edinburgh’s finest and one half of Crucial and Fresh Tom Russell. Tune in and get a meaty fix of sleazery that’ll see you right for the weekend ahead.”

That was just over a week ago and now is your opportunity to listen again. Watch out for him playing the Downlow Radio Tent at Glastonbury this week.

Carib Zine Launch

photo 2We are doing the music all afternoon at a secret location for the Carib zine launch tomorrow afternoon. Artists Liam Richardson and Ruairi McCance have been pouring over this for over a year now and has finally come to see the light of day. The printing is done, the bar has been built, the chicken has been jerked and the Carib beer is being chilled.

“Expect to see; Jelly and AK47s glistening in a rum sunset, an LA raiders Homer carved out of wood, Jesus in space playing with effervescent globules of sludge with his scythe, Old Monk with his see-through head and floating emblems on pyscho camouflage. All under spangly lights with cold beverages.”

Check the preview pages below. Get in touch if you’d like to order on of these very limited Carib zines!

LISTEN AGAIN: Crucial & Fresh w/ Farm Fest DJs

CrucialandFreshFarmfestPOST

Last week climbing up dangerous non compliant ladder of death and into the studio with us were Joe & Si (Farmfest DJs)

So Farmfest Dj’s you may be wondering? Their name comes from the intimate festival they created in the heart of Somerset, showcasing new and old musical talent, spanning a variety of genres. We went last year and we can assure you its well worth a visit if you haven’t already. 

“FARMFESTIVAL STARTED AS A PARTY FOR FRIENDS AND HAS STAYED THAT WAY 9 YEARS ON.” You can buy tickets here

The boys played a top notch selection of disco/boogie, freestyle and house. Included in our set were the likes of Hi & Saberhagen, Atlus (see previous posts) and Guised. Make sure you check them all. This friday joining us for a special mix is dear friend Saul Wilkes of the Boogie Cartel. Promises to be good wan.

 

Atlus – ‘Teem’

Atlus

‘If you’re not squad, team, or troops then i’m afraid you’ll have to get out,’ the words I hear on my first ‘4am on a Saturday-Atlus’ encounter. It’s safe to say you’ll want to be part of the Atlus squad. When not working in Rubadub, Glasgow’s young gun Hector Barbour has been making tunes / waves / faces melt in his cupboard (and the club) for 2 years and his ascendancy to a Deadmaus\Avicii type supremacy seems almost set in stone.

His latest offering ‘Midweekend,’ is a 3 track ep conjuring up images of an endless weekend, never going to bed and nervously waiting for the off license to open as you realise you have written off your weekend and your mum probably hates you. With titles such as ‘Sunday Morning’ and ‘You’ve Got To Let This Thing Go’ you get the idea..

Our favourite has to be ‘Teem,’ a big old anxiety inducing shuffler of track that purveys a ‘we’ve got the whole weekend ahead of us’ type excitement. (We will be playing this on our ‘Crucial & Fresh’ radio show tomorrow night)

When asked about the e.p he says ‘it’s based primarily on when I moved back to Glasgow, I kinda got shown that there are so many ways to look day to day life… and the weekend hasn’t really ended for me yet…’

We highly recommend that you but this 3 track weekend journey from his bandcamp HERE. You name your price. Check his Soundcloud here.
