Hailing from North Yorkshire, producer Joel Hood creates blissfully melancholic electronic pop that is both as big as a sunset and personal as a whisper. His work sounds like the work of a person who listened to nothing but Air France for months, because he did. The CD got stuck in his car player and what was probably initially really frustrating became an immersive experience …

If you’ve ever seen the man, you won’t be surprised to hear he’s got a thing for vintage.
He loves all things analog and when he was approached about remixing Beck’s “I Won’t Be Long” – based on his remix of David Bowie’s “Golden Years”—he knew exactly what he wanted to do.
He wanted to …

Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy – “11 11″

The long-rumored collaboration between the unlikely duo of Guy Gerber and Puff Daddy (as he is apparently now known as again) is finally here and it’s probably not what you’re expecting.
Gerber is an Israeli-born producer is primarily known for his cerebral tech house productions.
And that’s pretty much what you’re getting with “11 11” — it’s a Guy …

Bahamas Covers Bobby Womack: “Please Forgive My Heart”

Bahamas by Brian Lowe

When I first heard Bobby Womack’s “Please Forgive My Heart”, what really stood out (aside from his always soul-barring vocal delivery) was the ultra-modern production.
Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz) and Richard Russell (one of the founders of XL Recordings) produced the track, which was part of his first album of original material in 18 years.
It was striking, combining deep emotional depth with the electronic stylings of …

There has been a Queen resurgence that I have really been enjoying.
I recently read an incredible article in Rolling Stone, surviving members of the band are touring for the first time in 30 years, and here in LA the Center Theatre Group is presenting a musical based on their music (I hear the female lead has an extraordinary voice).
I grew up hearing “We Will …

Leftfield UK dance stalwart Richard Norris has been in the game since the early days of Acid House, but unlike his peers Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan, Norris has maintained (and seemingly purposefully fostered) an air of relative anonymity.
The driving force behind The Grid, The Time & Space Machine and as half of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (his collaborative project with Alkan) Norris has …

los porcos

Always a fragile and tenuous experiment, bands are an intimate relationship with all the ups and downs of a romantic relationship but multiplied exponentially and generally without the tension relieving outlet catalyst of sex to help weather the rough patches.
Consequently, when a band breaks up, there’s rarely any one thing that can members of the band can point (or are willing to share) as …
