Henry Hood gives a requiem for one of the greatest music duos.
Elinor Jones reviews Metronomy’s latest single.
In a recent feature for Resident Advisor, DJ Koze laments the fact that so often “the mood of house music is really limited”, and his second full-length release, Knock Knock, is an electronic album which refuses to settle in one mood or sound, even within the confines of a single track. Knock Knock is an […]
At a time where alternative and indie acts are in abundance, Los Angeles trio Lo Moon are one who attempt to stand out from the others with their dreamy, cinematic 80s pop vibes. Blending the artistry of a variety of influential predecessors and at times America’s answer to the likes of Oh Wonder and London Grammar […]
I first heard Kelela Mizanekristos’ brand of experimental R&B-infused electronica back in October 2013, when I downloaded her Cut 4 Me mixtape upon receiving a recommendation from one of my favourite blogs at the time.

The Emperor of Ice Cream followed, showcasing remixes and sampling ingenuity, injecting life and colour into a kind of music that can be quite […]
Self-described as “Tokyo-born, NYC stuck”, electronic artist Ken Herman, or Exitpost, gets an Exeposé look-in as a friend of trendy, Exeter-based, electronic pals Delmer Darion and grooves in the same wave of post-Aphex Twin, post-Kanye bedroom producers that grew with the increased accessibility of Macbooks and Logic Pro. The availability of electronic music and it’s […]
