Come Home to Music

We wrote about the venue for the first time in Summer 2017 after going down to see Micky do his thing for 5 hours. Now head honcho miche is running tings handling the programming for both Spiritland venues and a few other spaces in London. Things have escalated nicely with both kyle and miche playing…

Culture featuring Idioteque & Grizz

These boys need no introduction to the local dnb scene as of 2017, and have been smashing things throughout 2018. They’re only getting started apparently with a release of their track “Sinister” out a few weeks ago and a bunch of shows already booked for 2019, Idioteque and Grizz are definitely ones to watch out…

lo key’s Quick Fire Q’s – Ryan Cannon

We met Ryan online due to his affiliation w/ Afrosynth Records, in JHB South Africa. The young selector took the time to record this deep and mellow journey for us, and we’re stoked that he agreed to get involved in our Quick Fire Q’s. He watches the scene with a close eye based on social…

What is the definition of eclecticism?

Nick Shearer I know in the recording above, Nick refers to his good friend ‘Bevis’ as Mr Italo, but I honestly have never heard of this section of music before I met Nick, and I’m particularly a big fan of the way he pronounces the word Italo in his husky northern tones 😉 2018 has…
