This Weeks Top 5 (according to and listened by me!)

It’s been a busy week for me; a lot of University work as deadlines are approaching, I’m currently working as boom operator on set of Snowglobe and my laptop broke on Thursday!! It was a nightmare, the keyboard stopped working; I think I deleted something vital to make it work by accident. Thank goodness for … Continue reading

Millenial Tweet

So the thousandth tweet came and went today and sadly it was all wrapped up in the passion of the student demos again today. The tweet was RT @flayman When police use riot control tactics, a riot is what they’re going to get. This is not a coincidence. #demo2010 Powerful, relevant and passionate. Maybe I … Continue reading

the 1000th Tweet

So I’m coming up to my 1000th tweet (I need to be careful not to waste it on a throwaway tweet to someone like @darrylmorris – that would be annoying) so what shall I post?Meaningful and insightful?Poetical and inspirational?I’ll have a think.In the meantime suggestions on the back of a postcard (or email, tweet or … Continue reading

This Weeks Top 5 (according to and listened by me!)

Here we go, in reverse order… Number 5Addicted to Bass Winter 2010 (Ministry Of Sound) Always good to keep the MOS compilations on the list and (it might just be me) but their releases seem to get stronger! This album sees some very generic drum n bass, bassline and dance come together with some more … Continue reading

Mutated Music – Part 1

This is the start of a series of posts which I hope to eventually compile into a book haha! Or maybe just one big post 🙂 Music is something that is both reflexive and conscious. It inspires, discourages and creates (all at the same time). One track spawns two more equally the same and equally … Continue reading

Logistics – Spacejams (Hospital Records) For those of you who don’t know, I genuinely believe that Hospital Records, as a label, are responsible for some of the best electro, dance and drum n bass artists in the world and are therefore responsible for some of the best tracks in the world. Their latest release, Logistics’ … Continue reading

This Weeks Top 5 (according to and listened by me!)

I feel a little bit lazy with this weeks Top 5 and it’s not my fault! Album releases over the last week have been slow and nothing has really gripped me (other than I Blame Coco’s The Constant of course). So here we go, in reverse order… Number 5Addicted to Bass Winter 2010 (Ministry Of … Continue reading

Album Review

I Blame Coco – The Constant (Island Records) Since watching I Blame Coco at Manchester Academy the other week (see the review here), this album has been highly anticipated and so when I woke up singing Self Machine yesterday morning I can admit to being excited. For those of who don’t yet know of I … Continue reading

This Weeks Top 5 (according to and listened by me!)

In reverse order….. Number 5This is UK Grime Vol. 1 (Defenders) A 40 track compilation of some of the UK’s top grime artists featuring Tinie Tempah, JME, Chipmunk, Lethal Bizzle and Boy Better Know. £38.99 is a bit optimistic but at £7.99 for mp3 downloads its a steal! Highlights include Too Many Men by Boy … Continue reading

Album Review

Danny Byrd – Rave Digger (Hospital Records) For those of you unfamiliar with Danny Byrd he is what I would consider a drum and bass genius. His previous album, Supersized had some truly amazing songs such as Red Mist, a brooding, excited song with a distinguished melody and sublime vocal hook. But that’s enough of … Continue reading
