A chat with…Anu

If there’s one thing that Rhythm Section-affiliated anu is an expert in, it is making bodies move. As one of the party’s resident DJs, she has been key to making it not simply an organisation, but a movement (and an international one as its full name suggests). Her radio shows, often calm affairs that trace a history […]

Influences: ZamZam Sounds

There is a sense in which the ZamZam Sounds label now acts in the same manner as the wellspring of Islamic mythology from which it takes its name. It is an ever-flowing fount of nourishing sounds, all aimed at engaging the spiritual potential of dub-reggae through modern production techniques.

Tomorrow night (9th May 2017), Blink are bringing contemporary techno legend Perc for what will be one of the toughest midweek sessions the club has ever seen. Ali Wells has been releasing music for […]

A chat with…Minor Science

The UK underground dance music zeitgeist is soundtracked by the post-dubstep techno sound of London. It is bass-heavy, beautifully produced and often mind bending music, constructed from killer breaks and abstract sounds. Labels such as The Trilogy Tapes and Whities are leading this movement. Both are immaculately presented, placing art and fashion on level with their fresh-sounding […]
