THE GASLAMP KILLER – ‘LAVENDER AM’ (MEDITATION MIX)

Fantastic collection of meditative pieces, seamlessly put together to make the perfect wind-down mix – ‘Lavender AM’




LA BASED GASLAMP KILLER, PART OF THE LOW END THEORY CLUB CREW, DROPPED THIS IMPRESSIVE FIVE TRACK MIX EARLIER THIS YEAR AFTER HE SUFFERED FROM AN ACCIDENT  WHILST RIDING HIS SCOOTER AND NEARLY DIED.

IT’S A TRULY BEAUTIFUL SELECTION, EACH PIECE IS A STORY, ALL SPANNING MORE THEN TEN MINUTES IN LENGTH. 

WORDS FROM THE CREATOR – Lavender AM is the first time that I have ever released selections this close to my heart. This is a mix that represents the inner peace that I have found through my time of healing & meditation. I share it with you now, with the hope that it will bring you all the same peace that it has brought me.”

EBONY BONES – ‘BEHOLD A PALE HORSE’ (LP)

EBONY BONES IS BACK AFTER A 4 YEAR HIATUS, LOUDER, FEARLESS AND MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER BEFORE!



I first saw London’s Ebony Bones perform live at Brooklyn’s ‘Southpaw’ back in 2009 in support of her debut record Bone of My Bones. She was an exceptional performer, fierce, colorful and exuded a  punk rock attitude that floored everyone in the place…the audience was thin, but she rocked that gig like a stadium performance a true professional. Apparently in a past life she was a theatre performer and worked in a soap opera until 2005, this woman knows how to work a room and fortunately has the pipes and writing skills to support her steez.

I was wondering what she has been up to over the last few years and was happy to see this new release from this most talented producer/artist.

Ebony Bones grew up in Brixton she was born into a Caribbean family, and spent her childhood working with her father in the market selling vinyl, a fine base that made for her eclectic musical education.

‘Behold, a Pale Horse’ is a solid gem of a record from start to finish, really…it blew my socks clean off and to be honest that’s a lot considering I’ve not been too impressed with a lot of music out there at the minute (have you noticed a lull in my blog posts…yeah..well….nuff said about that!) 

The album is home to 12 tracks and has a super dark and apocalyptic vibe in sound and lyrical content…electronic beats rub shoulders with punk guitar riffs and don’t even get me started on the samples!! The Morrissey cover (What Dfference Does It Make) featuring ‘The New London Children’s Choir’ and ‘The Warriors’ cult classic film soundtrack sample kill!! Got to love this woman!! 

The release also sports guest appearances by Mechanical Elephant and The Mumbai Symphony Orchestra….wonderful sounds abound.

The Whole record was produced, written and arranged by Ebony Bones at YRF studios in Mumbai, India.

PHOTEK DROPS NEW RECORD AND REMIX!

PHOTEK RELEASES NEW ALBUM AND REMIX OF LANA DEL REY…

(Did I just write that?!)



BRITISH ELECTRONIC ARTIST PHOTEK HAS BEEN PRETTY SILENT IN TERMS OF FULL LENGTH RELEASES FOR THE BETTER PART OF A DECADE. HE RELEASED AN EP LAST YEAR, AND ALSO GOT A GRAMMY NOMINATION IN THE BEST REMIX CATEGORY FOR HIS REWORK OF DAFT PUNK’S ‘END OF LINE’ FOR THE ‘TRON LEGACY’ SOUNDTRACK. HE HAS BEEN WORKING ON A NUMBER OF SOUNDTRACKS OVER THE YEARS, AND MORE RECENTLY A NEW RECORD. 

THE ALBUM ENTITLED ‘ku:palm’ (REVIEW TO FOLLOW!), JUST DROPPED AND FROM THE TRACKS THAT I’VE HEARD IT’S A KILLING!

I MUST ADMIT I WAS A BIT EXCITED TO HEAR THAT L.A BASED RUPERT PARKES (PHOTEK) WOULD BE DROPPING A NEW ALBUM, NOT ONLY IS HE FROM MY HOMETOWN, ST. ALBANS (REPRESENT!), BUT HIS DJ KICKS MIX THAT CAME OUT IN THE SPRING WAS TO DIE FOR….SUPER ECLECTIC, JAM PACKED WITH EXCLUSIVE TRACKS AND FULL OF CLASSIC PHOTEK SURPRISES, SEAMLESSLY STRUNG TOGETHER.

THE NEW RECORD FEATURES GUEST APPEARANCES BY RAY LA MONTAGNE, LINCHE AND VERONIKA COASSOLO. 

I THINK I CAN HONESTLY SAY I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF LANA DEL REY…I GENERALLY DON’T ENJOY HER CROONING AND POUTING, AND FIND HER PRETTY PRETENTIOUS TO SAY THE LEAST, PLUS SHE LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE MY DOG SO IT’S HARD TO TAKE HER SERIOUSLY, SURE THAT’S NOT LANA’S FAULT… I’M JUST SAYING IS ALL. HAVING SAID ALL THIS…I REALLY LIKE PHOTEK’S REMIX OF HER TUNE ‘RIDE’…CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF – HERE!
