On The Cover:

The Revenge: Body Music. – Our cover story: Lauren Krieger talks to Graeme Clark (aka The Revenge and half of 6th Borough Project) about the magic of making music from nothing (or even a Commodore Amiga) and his latest Roar Groove Meets Dirt Crew vol 4. And an exclusive new 5 Mag Mix to boot.

Boiler Room is Changing. – Into what? It’s hard to say.

Boom Kick Revival. – In the battle of Roland cloners vs. Roland’s Cloud, the cloners are winning, and it isn’t even close. Why won’t Roland just give people the iconic classic gear they want?
