It was just about a year ago that Franck Roger dismantled (or at least mothballed) his label Real Tone at its peak. Real Tone broke a number of artists internationally (Maya Jane Coles, whose work since hasn't surpassed it;...
Are you going to remember this in six months? That’s a new litmus test I’m trying out with new music. It’s limited and a bit pretentious - not everything good is meant to stand the test of time. Sometimes good...
Photo: 'Tal-Paul: Paul Johnson (left) and DJ Lil'Tal (right) are the Doobie Brothas, from the artwork for the Doobie Bruthas EP on Dance Mania. This summer marked the release of The Doobie Bruthas project (DM-301), a new EP from the...
