Been a while since we’ve had much to shout about regards to straight up rap, but when this arrived in my inbox I was surprised for two reasons. 1. It’s by P.U.D.G.E, of leftfield beat producing fame (All City/RAMP), and 2. particularly considering I didn’t even know he was a rapper, it’s really pretty damn good! This track, Dorothy Looks Crazy, is produced by House Shoes and is lifted from P.U.D.G.E‘s PUDGESNACKS VOL.2 “I Didnt know!!! U Rap???”… [read more]

Keeping ones ﬁnger on the pulse of today’s dexterous music scene is a time-sponging, even arduous task. Yet such diligence sporadically uncovers sparks of creative vision that would otherwise languish in the ether. With Sepalcure’s latest XLR8R mix pounding through the speakers, a choppy vocal sample paired to a sumptuous bassline creeps in, immediately catching my attention. The track in question is The Look by Canadian producer Jacques Greene, who notes 90s garage and Chicago house as reference points when composing music in a … [read more]
This is the fantastic music video for the new track, Ariel, by Stateless. Recent signings to the Ninja Tune label, Stateless are back after a bit of a hiatus with a new album, Matilda, due out in February 2010 and which Ariel is directly lifted from. If this first single is anything to go by, then I’d be willing to suggest that the album is gonna be a bit special too!
