Introducing: Karen Harding

An early elimination on not just one but two televised talent shows might not be the most auspicious of career starts, but that hasn’t stopped Karen Harding from becoming one of the most dominant dance-pop divas currently around. The 24-year-old first came to attention in 2010 when she was knocked out of the penultimate round of Your Country Needs You, the BBC’s search to find an entrant for the Eurovision […]


Introducing: Gallant

Championed by tastemaking DJ Zane Lowe, dubstep wizard Skrillex and none other than Sir Elton John, Christopher Gallant surely has the most impressive star-studded fan base out of all this year’s hotly-tipped alt-R&B vocalists. It’s little wonder that the 23-year-old, who also recently shared the stage with Sufjan Stevens for an impromptu cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” has been wowing such A-list talent. Indeed, with a glorious falsetto that evokes […]

Tricky ‘Skilled Mechanics’ – Album Review

Named after a term used for trained assassins he heard in a documentary on espionage, Skilled Mechanics sees trip-hop trailblazer Tricky assemble his own killer team for the most collaborative studio effort of his lengthy career. Some of those on board are no stranger to the world of Adrian Thaws, including regular vocalist Francesca Belmonte who lends her sultry tones to the eerie synth-balladry of “We Begin,” drummer Luke Harris […]

Love ssega

Introducing: Love Ssega

As you’d expect from a founding member of studious classical-electro outfit Clean Bandit, British-Ugandan vocalist/rapper Love Ssega certainly isn’t short on brainpower. Born and raised in South London, the 24-year-old graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, then made the brave decision to quit the aforementioned Grammy winners to finish his Ph.D. in laser sensing. Love Ssega (real name Ssegawa-Ssekintu Kiwanuka) is just as cultured as he […]

Steve Angello ‘Wild Youth’ – Album Review

Judging by all the pre-release talk of shunning EDM, steering dance music back into a proper direction and making a piece of art, you’d expect Steve Angello’s second solo LP, Wild Youth, to be something of a game-changer. So it’s slightly baffling to hear that the Stockholm DJ has delivered the kind of unadventurous, generic and largely forgettable record he appears to be rallying against. Indeed, featuring guest appearances from […]

David Bowie

Music Icon David Bowie Dead at 69

While previous rumors of his death in years past were greatly exaggerated, the news has been confirmed by Bowie’s representatives and his son Duncan Jones (via Twitter). The following statement appears on Bowie’s official Facebook page: “David Bowie died peacefully […]

Dance/Electronica Preview 2016: What to Watch For

So after crowning Jamie xx’s “Loud Places” and Bob Moses’ Days Gone By as the greatest single and album of 2015 respectively, we now switch our attention to what we can expect to hear over the next twelve months in the world of dance/electronica. The first big album out of the blocks this year is Moth (Jan 22), the third album from alt-pop duo Chairlift, which judging by its first […]

Powers Legendary

Introducing: Powers

Following in the footsteps of N.E.R.D. and Miike Snow, New York duo Powers (a.k.a. Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru), are the latest powerhouse songwriting team to step out from behind the scenes and launch a career as artists in their own right. Del Rio, who has penned tracks for the likes of Cheryl Cole (“Under the Sun”), Kylie Minogue (“Into the Blue”) and Christina Aguilera (“Make the World Move”), first […]

Happy 2016! 5) Shamir – Ratchet Blessed with a striking genderless voice, androgynous style icon Shamir justified all the comparisons with Michael Jackson, Grace Jones and Antony Hegarty with a striking, self-assured and unpredictable debut […]

Bob Moses

Finishing our year-end countdown of the best dance/electronica singles of 2015 (40-31 is here, 30-21 is here, 20-11 is here), let’s cover the Top 10. 10) Chet Faker feat. Banks “1998” Originally released on Chet Faker’s 2014 debut Built on Glass, the brooding electro-soul of “1998” was given a new and even more sensual lease on life this year, thanks to the addition of sultry alt-R&B chanteuse Banks. 9) Shura […]

LA Priest Inji

Top 20 Dance/Electronica Albums of 2015 (#10-6)

Continuing our countdown of the best full-length dance/electronica releases of 2015 (20-16 is here, 15-11 here), let’s take a look at numbers 10-6. 10) Grimes – Art Angels From shrieking nu-metal to opera, Grimes’ fourth LP still contained plenty of bewildering moments. But overall, Art Angels was a more streamlined pop-focused affair which proved that the Canadian pixie girl could still be just as captivating when she toned down the […]

Top 40 Dance/Electronica Singles of 2015 (#20-11)

Continuing our countdown of the best dance/electronica singles of 2015 (40-31 is here, 30-21 is here), here’s a look at numbers 20-11. 20) Hurts – “Lights” Teaming up with Rhye’s Robin Hannibal, dramatic synth-pop duo Hurts embraced their previously hidden funk side on a slinky serenade which suggests they should lighten up a little more often. 19) Class Actress – “More Than You” Accompanied by a provocative noir-ish video that […]

The Top 20 Electronica/Dance Albums of 2015 (#15-11)

Continuing our countdown of the best dance/electronica albums of the year (No. 20-16 is here) – here are numbers 15-11. 15) New Order – Music Complete Having arguably been on Autopilot for the last 20 years, few expected anything special from New Order on their first proper studio effort without founding member Peter Hook. But the bassist’s acrimonious departure appeared to have sparked some passion into the indie-disco pioneers, with […]

Top 40 Dance/Electronica Singles of 2015 (#30-21)

Continuing our countdown of the best dance/electronica singles of the year (No. 40-31 is here), let’s pick up at number 30. 30) Nick Brewer – “Talk To Me” Okay, so Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman” might not be the most original of sample choices, but in a year swamped by reworkings of ‘90s club classics, this hip-house anthem was easily the most joyous. 29) FKA twigs – “In Time” The standout […]

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 […]
