radioWell it sure has been a while, hasn’t it? Once upon a time, this website buzzed daily with new music, charts, interviews, competitions, mixtapes and anything else we could think of to deliver new music to the masses. We had a team of 17 writers, enjoyed thousands of hits per day, sold merchandise, put on warehouse parties, did radio shows and generally had a merry old time.

So what happened? Well – blogs died out, we all got ‘proper’ jobs, and this wonderful vehicle for music discovery was put to bed.

Until now.

Because, for the next 3 weeks, we’re returning in the form of an internet radio station. It’s designed to be a fun distraction from the difficulties that we’re struggling with right now globally. It’s not for self-promotion; it’s for everyone to just enjoy music and feel a bit nostalgic.

The plan is simple – this temporary radio station will focus on eras. That could mean 90s rave music, 00s electro house or modern day techno. Any genre is up for grabs. It’s up to the DJs who play, and what listeners ask for (if we get any).

Anyone can play a set. Anyone can listen. So if you’re a DJ and fancy getting involved, hit me up (matt.j.montagano@gmail.com). If you’re not a DJ, tell us what you want to hear, and we’ll try to play it.


Thanks in advance for tuning in. Stay home, stay safe, stay happy. Big love.

Like the title says Tiga’s back with a new track ‘Trust Your Body’ getting released this week on his label Turbo Recordings! The track was created with help with Finland’s own Jori Hulkkonen, one of the most underrated producers in the world! With just about two decades under his belt the man has become a living legend working with the likes of José González, Jesper Dahlbäck, Chromeo and a shit ton more!

He also has a pretty cool last name.

But wait there’s more…

Tracklist after the jump

It’s always good to hear a fresh take on old school electro in an upcoming release, and Endangered Species is definitely a stomper. It’s one of the tracks off No Regular Play’s upcoming album, of the same name. The rest of the album is leftfield and indulgent, but polished. The title track, Endagered, is the killer though.

Sounds like: Marc Romboy making sweet percussive love to an electronic water buffalo.

Check the track here:

And NRP have even been kind enough to offer a free download of an alternative version; check it here:

Endangered Species, out on Wolf & Lamb Music on Nov 23rd

VIDEO: Tensnake Feat Syron – Mainline

Tensnake - Mainline

This morning brings another ’90s infused music video treat in the shape of Tensnake’s new single for Defected, Mainline featuring Syron. Think recent Bicep with a dash of Kim Ann Foxman plus a generous helping of GAP adverts of yore and you’re basically there.

Waze & Odyssey are part of a new wave of emerging UK producers who are helping to keep the UK house scene on its toes.  After their first release in early 2012, “Ah Baby (Here We Go Again)”  they’ve released a whole load of remixes, originals, and bootlegs, ranging from raw, urban garage tracks through to epic ’90s-influenced house anthems.  They originally created a fake background story about being US garage veterans raised on a diet of funk & soul in Miami, but then they came clean that they were just having a laugh with that story and are actually a couple of London veterans called Serge Santiago and Firas Waez.  With a distinct Waze & Odyssey sound evolving, a new W & O record label, a love of keeping people guessing, and support from the likes of Pete Tong, Lazaro Casanova, Bicep, and Friendly Fires, Waze & Odyssey are set to be BIG in 2013.  We caught up with them to find out what they’re all about…

Climbers have been getting a lot of attention this year after their Beatport success with their feel good disco-house track, Equal Responsibility, amongst other things.  Their remix of  a MANIK’s track, Parasol, is another low slung deep disco affair that will definitely get the girls dancing.  They did a nice deep house set for a Colombian group of promoters called Sneakpeak, you can check it out here.

Out 16th October
