Bondax ‘Gold’ – Review on DT

“Echoing the point at the turn of the century when daytime radio was filled with playful pop informed electronica, spearheaded by Daft Punk’s colossus ‘Discovery’, the sample histrionics of the Avalanches, crystalline charm of Royksopp and the downright gleeful escapism of Junior Senior, we’ve got things good again.”

Gorgeous track from Bondax you’ve all probably heard already. Hit the quote. Lovely Starslinger edit which didn’t make the review to peep as well.

DT Podcast 292 – Tanner Ross

Happy Valentines Day! Falling back in the mellow warmth of electronics on the day of love, this brand new podcast from Tanner Ross and Data Transmission is the real soundtrack to what you should be getting into, regardless of it just being a winter reflective mix rather than one specifically themed around emotive feeling. Just take a glance at the tracklist; Chilly Gonzales, Atjazz, Kendrick Lamar, Dam-Funk, Toro Y Moi and Bob Marley.

Or you can just smile at the charm of last year’s V-Day mixes from Soul Clap and Breakspear.

David Glass ‘Lost EP’ – review on DT

DAVID GLASS EP CIRCUS022

“Throw in some scratches, wisely used vocals and the presence of that oh so smart drum work underneath and you’ve got a record that appeases the true heads, bang on trend in terms of reference point for sample but utilising one so timeless it’s hard to see this sounding tired or played out.”

David Glass has got a new EP out on Circus Recordings, click my quote above to see the review. It is ALL about the Nas sampling track ‘Tell the People’ however, an absolute humdinger of a house groove which lifts some brilliant Large pro production. Beatport link here.

Art Department ‘Social Experiment 003’ review on DT

NO19CD002_cover_2000x2000

“It transforms the original from an almost tongue in cheek parable on alien invasion to a more seductive, steadier portrayal of house. That flash epitomizes the way the music of that period has been re-appropriated nigh on a decade later.”

As usual, click the quote for the review.

Huxley ‘No Matter What’ – Data Transmission Review

“As the song progresses the aforementioned stabs become more accentuated and there’s a definite slowed down Detroit vibe on the go, a lascivious groover that nags and tugs at your heart-strings without ever grappling them completely; perfect fodder for the skilled DJ to inject a degree of atmosphere into their set.”

Great deep house from Huxley on Tsuba, with MK gifting two completely on point remixes.

Severino Interview on Horsemeat Disco

“I think it is the combination of the crowd, the vibe and the idea of being able to keep everything and everyone happy. I don’t mind sometimes playing “that” cheesy record at the end of the day we are having fun so what’s the problem? That balance is always needed”

I chewed the fat with Horsemeat Disco’s Severino about his new compilation for Classic Records, disco, gays and a few other things that rank highly on my favourite things list. Hit the quote

Odd Parents & Maceo Plex ‘Get Enough’ Review on DT

“It’s formulaic, but when that formula delivers the kind of incessant shuffling manifesto that has characterised the Spaniard’s meteoric rise it’s certainly nothing to baulk at.”

Maceo Plex returns with ODD Parents to deliver an engaging house cut… hit the quote for the full review. Purchase link here.

Darius Syrossian & Friends ‘Metal EP’ – Review on DT

“It’s a robotic funk monster that boasts a gargling acid line that sits somewhere between a more pared down heir to the freakish overtones of Paul Woolford’s Erotic Discourse project and the electronic train recreations Kraftwerk stapled to Trans Express.”

Brand new review over on Data Transmission; this time from Leeds boy Darius Syrossian who has been the dark horse of 2012. Well worth checking. Out on Halloween.

Guy J Interview on Data Transmission & Circus London Fri 27th Oct

“Every place has its own style of music or its own way to react to music and that is what is so inspiring about all this. There are places I go and beforehand I’m working on music specifically for that place and those people – music that is inspired by my experiences, that I feel belongs to these places.”

I spoke to Guy J ahead of him dropping by the Egg in London this weekend for Circus for Data Transmission, clicking on the quote as ever takes you straight to the feature.

The event in question is the launch party for Yousef’s sophomore album ‘A Product of Your Environment’, with Yousef and Guy joined by Luca Bachetti, Jon Rundell and Lewis Boardman.

Yousef also recently released two videos, one which previously got a mention here and the other for ‘For the Terraces’ which takes in the sunk issed shores of Ibiza, a certainly different approach to the Liverpool focused approach on ‘Feel the Same thing’. Check that out below.
