It's always good to hear a new Soulwax remix.
Metronomy’s Love Letters was one of the better albums to come out last Friday. The band’s fourth album displays their trademark deft touch in making sparse melancholic pop that is completely out on its own.

I completely lost interest in The Weeknd as the approaching Kiss Land moved into view like some sleazy sex fart. It definitely lacked the charm of the mixtapes that came before it. ‘Wanderlust’ broke the album’s mould by inserting (excuse me) some disco funky disco rhythms into proceedings. Clever UK production duo Snakehips have used… Read more »

Glasgow band and SOAK's label bosses rework her single.

Dublin producer puts a clouded twist on the Perry's new single.
Katy Perry’s new single ‘Dark Horse’ angles for more street cred than her normal tunes as it features rapper Juicy J and trap-style production.
