  • ¿Y not? – “Time Machine” – a vibrant and mesmerizing ambiance

    Anyone who tries to move to “Time Machine”, or any other track by ¿Y not?, is cruising for a date with the chiropractor.

  • Celiane the Voice: “Why Can’t You” strikes with conviction!

    When I read the following description: “A marriage of dubstep, electronica, hip hopera and R&B” – my ‘fear factor’ reached Adrenalin levels at the thought of the type of thundering noisy mishmash my ears would have had to succumb to. The idea of growling synths, and screaming auto-tuned vocals,...

But Malazan flits between all and none of these approaches; the result, perhaps,...
  • Jason Miller: “Poundtown” – cleverly produced

    “Poundtown” is a beautifully composed album that probably marks a defining moment in Jason Miller’s career. He has a sound that has developed far beyond the type of music that is simply suitable for a DJ set. There is much more to this than a simple selection of tracks;...
