Guest Mix: Section Five

Our latest guest mix comes from the west coast of Ireland, and with it comes a really enjoyable accompanying piece of writing discussing the mix and the music selected. The stream/download is at the bottom of the post…enjoy!  For most of the year dancing as we do it is confined to sweaty basements where the…

…now where’s your bite?

Any of us paying attention to dance music media outlets in recent weeks will have most likely spotted at least one interview or promotional piece with regards to Mark Hawkins’ –  aka Marquis Hawkes –  new album, Social Housing. Hawkins has gotten into a spot of bother in recent years over his new moniker and…

Guest Mix: Dan Orchard (Delete)

Our latest guest mix comes from Bournemouth, England via Moscow, Russia – which reads better than “Berlin based” any day of the week. Dan Orchard, resident at Bournemouth’s Delete party is a name possibly many aren’t familiar with – though he has popped up at festivals such as Free Rotation –  but that should most…

Well, well, well its time for another installment in the most Sporadic Mix Series on the Internet. This time around we are handing over the reigns to a man from the soundest part of the UK (oohh, topical), Scotsman Jamie Thomson. He’s a man long in the game and while may be not as well…

Dj Technician & Dj Overdose

It will come as no great surprise to our readers when I say that we here at ISM take the long view when it comes to ol Electronic Dance Music. It is still partly viewed as “new” and there has always been a certain obsession with innovation within its varied sub sections even though we…

Sherkin Jerkin’

For those of you not too bothered about seeing Tiga for a 4th time in 12 months, or slightly perturbed by how last years Electric Picnic’s headliners were copy and pasted on to this years Forbidden Friut line up and / or generally can’t tell the difference between most festivals on the calendar any more, this June…

Lumigraph – Bulletproof Holiday / Melly – Flying Ducks

The world of sparse, gritty house and techno can certainly feel like a chore at times, such is the seemingly never ending stream of it we are faced with these days. As an aesthetic choice there is fundamentally no problem with it, it only becomes an issue when one lathers tracks in distortion to hide behind the fact…

Body Mechanic – Techno Sexual

It sometimes feels like Discogs is most notable for the constantly inflated prices of many old records, but some genres and oeuvres have so far been fairly immune to this at times most frustrating of cultures. The ghettotech sound of Detroit is one such, most notably the back catalogue of Mr ‘De’s Electrofunk label which…

Rob Rowland – Freestate One

A couple of days ago I posted a white label record with no information on it to my Instagram with the tag “The finest techno record ever to come out of Ireland…?”. Speaking subjectively I will stand by that statement when discussing Rob Rowland’s first Freestate record, which surfaced some time around 2000/2001 and then…
