Teebs Interview on One Magazine

I am a big fan of One magazine (because it is all about blading) and was pretty happy when Justin (the editor) told me he liked one of my recent articles. It is an interview with Brainfeeder signing Teebs, who has a great debut album called Ardour.

Hot Chip interview

Thanks to my buddy Gin Trewhella at Exposure PR I got the chance to interview Joe Goddard from the much hyped electro pop ensemble that is Hot Chip. Talking with him was kind of like talking to an older relative: He was very calm, careful with his words and warm in a way that usually only occurs in the company of close friends or family.

I am not the biggest fan of Hot Chip, but Joe Goddard gets my vote every time.

Huoratron - Corporate Occult

I am a big fan of really dirty techno. I don't mean that crap you hear on Ministry of Sound compilations, I mean dirty, bassy techno that makes you want to swing a baseball bat into a thousand windows. Phil Hebblethwaite, the editor of The Stool Pigeon, knows of my hedonistic tendencies and pointed me in the direction of Huoratron.

The Icelandic producer decribes himself as live electronic grindcore and he is not fucking kidding. This is some brutal techno that combines elements of Mr. Oizo at his nastiest (Positif) and Vitalic (before he got all electro on us).

The video for his recent single, Corporate Occult, was directed by Cedric Blaisbois and features some rather extreme scenes of sex and violence that makes The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up promo look a little tame. Watch this and you will think long and hard about having a one night stand with that pretty young lady you met on the dancefloor.

The Stool Pigeon Issue 28 is out now

This is the first issue of The Stool Pigeon that I have worked on and it was awesome. Phil Hebblethwaite is a fun guy to hang around with and the rest of the team are on the top of their game.

This issue features interviews with drag pioneers Salem, hip hop legend Ice Cube and N*E*R*D. The indie hipsters are not going to be happy. Oh well...

Andreya Triana interview

A few weeks ago I got the pleasure of meeting the lovely Andreya Triana, a Brighton based singer songwriter that has just released her debut album, Lost Where I Belong, on Ninja Tune.

You may recognise Andreya's voice as she provided the sultry vocals on Flying Lotus' Tea Leaf Dancers. She also collaborated with Bonobo on a beautiful song called The Keeper.

Her debut album is an amazing example of contemporary neo soul that easily matches anything by Jill Scott or Erykah Badu.

Check it out, you won't regret it.
