Constant State was launched with a series of artistic yet vaguely unnerving videos that reminded me of some of the creepy shit that you can find scraping the sides of YouTube with random search strings. But rather than a...
It was somewhere between the second and third track on Pittsburgh Track Authority's debut LP that I realized something extraordinary was happening. In less than 15 minutes, Enter The Machine Age had shifted adeptly from the broken beat, 4Hero-esque...
World Psychedelic Classics Vol 5:Who Is William Onyeabor? Luaka Bop In the six months since Luaka Bop's reissue album Who Is William Onyeabor? was released, the obscure, reclusive Nigerian funk and disco musician has been acclaimed as a lost genius, was...
One year after the tragic death of Scott Hardkiss, Gavin and Robbie Hardkiss have brought the iconic San Francisco label back from the brink. This is the fascinating story of Hardkiss - or, at least, the story so far.   It...
Not all of your heroes died young and left a corpse handsome enough to sell t-shirts twenty years later. Some of your heroes just had bills to pay. Hardly anyone stays on top in any form of pop music...
I feel bad for this, for adding what's become Shaun J. Wright's epithet - "of Hercules & Love Affair" - every time I say his name. Shaun has done more than enough - as an artist, a DJ, a...
This is the work of some bad motherfuckers right here. Let's get the introductions out of the way. Brawther doesn't need one if you've been reading what I've been writing. Together with Jeremy UndergroundParis from My Love Is Underground, Brawther...
One of the most versatile producers to come out of Chicago in the 1990s, DJ Skull is back on the scene and working at a more prolific pace than ever. Consider it making up for lost time, as the one-time...

DJs today are confronted with an astonishing number of choices, from vinyl to digital media, controllers, mixers, and the unending stream of more music being released for consumption than at any time in history. It's all a bit overwhelming. We...
If my record collection is any guide, Giorgio Luceri isn't just going places - he's already arrived. In the wake of another EP on Chicago's Mathematics (A Love Supremacy) that has been getting a lot of love, don't overlook...
Vanguard Sound has been going since 2006; I believe we reviewed a one of or two of the early records from Amir Alexander's home base but none lately since he's been "discovered" abroad. There's something tying together the four...
Where do you begin the story of the man who began it all? The man who began it for you? Should I start at the beginning - the literal beginning, the first three words of the House Music Bible as...
