Michael Forshaw : Paaws (Wip)

One of our fave exponents of experimental dirty electro and techno has to be Michael Forshaw, right from his early "Boyzone Make Me Wanna Smoke Crack" EP on his own Chan 'n' Mikes label up to his 2010 release on Coin Operated.

He has just put up something new, its a work in progress, but sounds interesting with that gritty familiar analogue sound but also a slight leftfield Dubstep feel
Blink and you missed it!!

Dark Tantrums : Get Darker Dubstep Mix

Dark Tantrums brings a full on energetic set loaded with heavy weightlines!

Disco Bloodbath Launch New Label

Courtesy Of Juno Plus

The collective behind Disco Bloodbath, the long running nomadic club night that has taken place in many a sweat-filled basement across East London, have decided to expand operations with the launch of Disco Bloodbath Recordings.

The Disco Bloodbath story began back in 2007 as an infrequent party inspired by the hedonistic atmosphere of late eighties clubbing in Manhattan. The inaugural party took place at Passion, a Dalston basement club set underneath a Caribbean restaurant and soon grew by word of mouth to become one of London’s most popular unannounced parties.
This is thanks in part to the standard of guests that have manned the decks (Tim Sweeney, Justin Vandervolgen and Permanent Vacation to name but three) and also down to the accomplished DJing skills of it’s residents Damon Martin, Ben Pistor and Dan Beaumont.

While Beaumont is no longer part of Disco Bloodbath, Martin and Pistor maintain operations, and along with a busy DJing schedule the duo have been dipping their toes into production with a number of remixes in recent times which have laid down the foundations for a label, which pleasingly eschews the chance to stuff the world with yet more “disco edits” in favour of some original material.
Damon Martin is at the helm for the debut release with That Ain’t Right, a pumping slab of house music clearly indebted to the 90s US style which comes backed with remixes from Waze & Odyssey and the excellent Legendary Children.

Disco Bloodbath Recordings will release That Ain’t Right by Damon Martin on 12″ vinyl on June 18 with the digital release to follow in July.

Broken20 : Red Night Part 1

Second release on Glasgow's Broken60, the cassette release subsidiary label of Broken20, is just around the corner and is produced by TVO (The Village Orchestra)

This release ditches the widescreen lush ambience and techno of previous releases and delves head first into lo-fi, noisey spacial sounds with its inspirations from artists Zoviet France, Porter Ricks, Pan Sonic and above all William S Burroughs.

Each copy of Red Night comes with a code to download the digital version of the tracks. All downloads will contain the album twice, once as individual tracks and also as it was intended to be, two long tracks of side A and side B.
A remix release of Red Night is also due featuring reworks by Law and a mysterious well established name in techno circles working under a pseudonym.
