Oneohtrix Point Never ‘Garden of Delete’ – Album Review

Brooklyn experimentalist Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, appears to have spent just as much time teasing information about his second album for the Warp label, Garden of Delete, as he did making it. A cryptic PDF file, a blog interview with an alien named Ezra and a website dedicated to a fictional genre called “hypergrunge” are just some of the bizarre tactics that have been used to promote the […]

Floating Points ‘Elaenia’ – Album Review

Nicknamed the techno Einstein, neuroscience graduate-turned-DJ Sam Shepherd, aka Floating Points, has taken almost as long to produce his debut album, Elaenia, as the legendary physicist did the theory of relativity. Indeed, it’s been seven years and over a dozen E.P.s and singles since the Londoner first began to stake his claim as one of ambient electronica’s most intriguing young composers, meaning that this eight-track collection arrives with a certain […]

grimes art angels

Grimes ‘Art Angels’ – Album Review

Given that she took on the roles of multi-instrumentalist and producer to gain full creative control, you would probably have expected electro-pop pixie-girl Grimes to have out-weirded herself for her fourth studio effort, Art Angels. And yet, despite recent talk of being impossible to pigeonhole, the 27-year-old has largely dialed down the hyperactivity that made 2012’s Visions one of the most wonderfully warped pop records of the decade. Sure, Art […]


The November 2015 Dance/Electronica Playlist

From the welcome return of Brooklyn’s premier synth-pop duo to a clever mash-up of LCD Soundsystem and Bruce Springsteen, these are the five dance/electronica tracks you need to hear this month. DJ Snake feat. Bipolar Sunshine – “Middle” The follow-up to his monster Major Lazer collaboration “Lean On,” “Middle” sees Frenchman DJ Snake team up with indie-soulman Bipolar Sunshine for another sublime piece of bass-pop which offers a slightly more […]

Jamie Woon Making Time

Jamie Woon ‘Making Time’ – Album Review

As the missing link between James Blake and Justin Timberlake, Londoner Jamie Woon inevitably became one of the post-dubstep scene’s breakout stars. But with his second album, Making Time, arriving four years after his first, the 32-year-old now has to reassert his place in the pecking order of after-hours singer-songwriters. It isn’t immediately clear why the record took so long, with producer Lexx (Wild Beasts, Gwilym Gold) largely stripping back […]

Bob Moses

Introducing: Bob Moses

Not to be confused with the legendary jazz drummer or the civil rights activist, Bob Moses are in fact a Brooklyn-based Canadian duo currently bridging the gap between the dance floors and the dinner party with their smouldering take on deep house. Lead vocalist Tom Howie, a Berklee College of Music graduate who initially pursued a career as a solo singer/songwriter, and Jimmy Vallance, a DJ/producer who once specialized in […]

felix jaehn

Introducing: Felix Jaehn

Last year it was Robin Schulz. In 2015, it’s Felix Jaehn‘s turn to become the German producer whose remixing skills can transform the most unassuming pop song into a globe-conquering chart-topping floorfiller. The 21-year-old’s infectious reworking of OMI’s “Cheerleader” recently saw him become the first German artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 since notorious lip-synchers Milli Vanilli way back in 1989, while his similarly sun-kissed makeover of the Chaka […]

armin van buuren embrace

Armin van Buuren ‘Embrace’ – Album Review

After years of trying, superstar DJ Armin van Buuren finally scored that elusive mainstream hit with 2013’s Grammy-nominated “This Is What It Feels Like.” It’s little surprise, therefore, that the majority of his sixth studio effort, Embrace, sticks rigidly to his belatedly winning formula. Indeed, “Heading Up High,” “Freefall” and “Indestructible” are just a handful of the songs that attempt to replicate the over-emotive male vocal delivery, hands-in-the-air chorus and […]

Jean_Michel_Jarre electronica1

Jean Michel Jarre ‘Electronica 1: The Time Machine’ – Album Review

Following in the footsteps of Giorgio Moroder’s star-studded comeback, fellow electro wizard Jean Michel Jarre has also assembled an impressive line-up for his first new studio effort in eight years, Electronica 1: The Time Machine. But whereas Moroder’s unexpected return largely relied upon today’s synth-pop sirens, Jarre’s features a far more eclectic list of guest artists that have inspired him over the past four decades, ranging from legendary horror film […]

avicii stories

Avicii ‘Stories’ – Album Review

Third only to Calvin Harris and Tiësto as the world’s richest DJ, few have done more for the EDM cause than baby-faced Swede Tim Bergling, aka Avicii. But his second studio effort, Stories, suggests the 26-year-old is getting ready to leave the world of epic drops behind. The follow-up to 2013’s hit-packed #TRUE is still very much a floor-filling affair with ventures into everything from tropical house (“Gonna Love Ya”) […]


The October 2015 Dance/Electronica Playlist

From a belated summer house anthem to an indie-pop supergroup’s surprise reinvention, these are the key dance/electronica tracks you need to wrap your ears around this month. XYconstant ft. Tom Aspaul – “Do It Well” The summer may be well and truly over, but fresh from his triumphant remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do,” rising British producer XYconstant is doing his best to keep the sunshine vibes […]

chvrches every open eye

CHVRCHES ‘Every Open Eye’ – Album Review

Having recently bemoaned the fact that “too many bands end up throwing away the thing people liked about them in the first place,” it should come as little shock that the second album from Scottish electro-pop trio CHVRCHES, Every Open Eye, doesn’t exactly deviate wildly from their first. Indeed, the 80s-inspired wave of celestial synths and booming echo-laden beats that defined 2013’s The Bones of What You Believe is still […]

oh wonder

Introducing: Oh Wonder

Following in the footsteps of Justin Bieber’s Journals and Ash’s A-Z, British electronic duo Oh Wonder are the latest act to toy with the album format by pre-releasing every single track that appears on their first full-length studio effort. The risky strategy might not have exactly reaped rewards for the former tween idol or Northern Irish rockers, but with each song racking up over a million Soundcloud plays and topping […]

disclosure caracal

Disclosure ‘Caracal’ – Album Review

After their debut almost singlehandedly changed the landscape of commercial dance music, in-demand siblings Disclosure now face the difficult challenge of avoiding the dreaded sophomore slump with Caracal. Thankfully for the Lawrence brothers, the follow-up to 2013’s Grammy-nominated Settle is unlikely to derail their career, but by sticking rigidly to their well-worn formula, it’s also just as unlikely to elevate it. Indeed, like its predecessor, which flirted with two-step garage, […]

Shorts to Watch For: ‘Sic Transit Glory’

Going against the grain of the current glut of punchline-driven, quick-plotted short films trying to clamor for attention, Sic Transit Glory is an insightful piece dealing with human emotion at a depth many shorts fail to reach due to their limited runtimes. Set for release this fall, the fourth short by emerging writer/director Joshua McQuilkin is a moving visual poem reflecting on the pain of a dying friendship. From the […]


Guillermo del Toro Is Launching A Horror Film Contest

Guillermo del Toro. He’s one of the biggest names in the movie business. He writes, directs, and produces his films. He also produces other peoples films. Meaning he cherry picks brilliant works that wouldn’t be seen by a wide audience and he, through his fast connection network, is able to get them wider distribution. Well, now the man is taking his producer habits one step further. He’s launching a contest. […]


Watch David Fincher’s New Gap Ads

David Fincher is one of the greatest living directors. He’s created masterpieces like Fight Club, Seven, and Zodiac. He also directed Alien 3. But that’s neither her, nor their. He’s a man who, with some regularity, creates some of our culture’s most talked about films. And on occasion he directs commercials. It’s a fairly common occurrence. Directors working in commercials allows them to make smaller films, with less risk, at […]


Michael Fassbender Has Ideas For X-men: Apocalypse

Michael Fassbender is, arguably, one of the biggest stars on the surface of planet Earth, currently. He’s a leading man who can pull massive crowds into a theatre and simultaneously win numerous amounts of awards. We’ll have to wait till May 2016 to find out exactly what Fassbender, Kinberg, and company have in store for us. I, for one, am really excited to see what happens. I’m really into the […]


Donald Glover To Play Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-man Cartoon

In 2010, the Amazing Spider-man was rumbling to life. People were saying that Sony was going to reboot the franchise and of course the topic of what actor could take over the role of Spider-man was an instant debate. One of the names the quickly became a source of heated discussion was Donald Glover. Fans of the actor-rapper-writer were convinced that he could play Peter Parker, while more conservative individuals […]


Ridley Scott Talks Prometheus and Blade Runner Sequels

Ridley Scott has a line of projects that seems to circle the block. He’s wrapping up Exodus: Gods and Kings, then he’s moving on to The Martian, with Matt Damon, and then he’ll finally be getting around to the films that everyone wants him to make Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. Scott recently sat down with EW and had a few things to say about each of the upcoming […]


Bond 24 In Need Of A New ‘Iconic’ Henchman

Bond 24 is inching towards production. They have a script, they have a director and an established cast. What they don’t have is a cool new henchman, apparently. A casting call just went out for a man who is above 6’2”, age 30 – 45, and has a ‘ very unusual look’. What that means is they’re looking for someone who is taller than Bond, and has the capability to […]


Parks and Rec Blooper Reel

Parks and Rec is inching towards completion. And as such interesting odds and ends from is sixth season are ending up online. Check out this hilarious blooper reel from the season. Needless to say, Parks and Rec has one of the most comedically gifted casts currently on TV. Watching Chris Pratt, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Nick Offerman, and Aubrey Plaza in these bloopers makes me almost wish the show was […]


‘Young Ones’ Looks Absolutely Jaw Dropping

Young Ones is the second feature film from writer and director Jake Paltrow. It’s a futuristic western with an amazing cast that looks absolutely spectacular. The film appears to have gravitas and empathy in spades. Set in a futuristic dystopian world where drought has covered the United States, the film follows a family and their struggles to find equilibrium in this new unforgiving world. The cast includes Michael Shannon, Elle […]


The Emmys Don’t Matter

The Emmy’s have long been the strange, slightly gangly, socially awkward cousin in the award show family. They don’t really matter. They’re there. They’re at the table. They’re frequently seen around at family functions. But most people don’t like them. They’re certainly not the Oscars. The pride and joy of the family. The accomplished and good looking favorite child. They’re not even the Golden Globes, the stocky, slightly less accomplished […]


Men, Women, and Children

Jason Reitman is one of those directors that you always need to keep an eye on. He’s always in the background, doing interesting things. While other directors with his level of clout would be attempting to direct Transformers 16, he’s out making interesting, character based pictures. His latest effort is entitled Men, Women, and Children. What’s it about? The intersection of technology and the human condition.  


Jackie Chan Needs To See A Script For Rush Hour 4

In the endless deluge of sequels, reboots, preboots, and remakes I can honestly say I’ve never heard anyone say ‘Man, I wish there was another Rush Hour movie’. Well, apparently there are plans slowly rumbling to life. Somewhere there’s a studio executive who is attempting to breathe new life into the franchise. While promoting the Chinese Zodiac, Jackie Chan sat down with Jonathan Ross and answered some questions. One of […]


William H Macy’s ‘Rudderless’ Looks Heartwarming

William H Macy is one of the few ‘that guy’ actors who has transcended character acting and become a household name. In films like Fargo, Magnolia, The Cooler and Mystery Men Macy has showcased his skills and verisimilitude at every turn. The man is an amazing talent. Well, now it looks like Macy is turning his skills to another aspect of filmmaking. Namely, being behind the camera.  


The Revenge of the Green Dragons

Crime movies are released pretty regularly. They’re easy to make from a logistical point of view. They don’t require tons of special effects and high profile actors. But, let’s be honest, most of them aren’t earth shattering. They’re just not. Yeah, of course there are amazing crime films made. But let’s be real. They’re few and far between. Well, the godfather of crime films is executive producing a new one […]
