And now for something completely different: Clubbing in the UK

2008 London, and I’m standing outside the George & Dragon (a cultural fixture that sadly got lost in the gentrification that still ensues in London today), with a flat pint in my hand on an unusually warm summers evening. It’s my first weekend back in London, after a long absence and I’m determined to find […]

JM#53 – August

August breaks out of the gate of his Jæger mix with a dubby, stripped back groove. A track that just keeps walking on the spot, instills a tangible Sunday mood before bongo drums, sultry pads, and a pulse join the fray. 4/4 territory awaits and through a slow progression August takes the energy from a […]

A new world awaits us under ground

In the cold, sobering light of day on a Sunday morning our thoughts yet again drift to Blå and its uncertain future.

JM#052 – Rulefinn

Syncopated hats, snapping bass-lines, larger than life string arrangements and an energy you can almost touch; it must be the sound of Disco, and selected by one of Oslo’s staunches admirers of the genre, Rulefinn. The Oslo DJ takes us back to the early seventies, to a time before Abba and the Bee Gees, when […]

In the booth with Johanna Knutsson

“Let me take you on a journey”, suggests the vocal just half way through Johanna Knutsson mix recorded live in our courtyard two weekends ago. It feels like we’ve reached the possible outer limits of space through Johanna’s mix already, but it appears she’s not done with us yet. We travel deep through the cosmos […]

Pistol Pete is in the House

The name Pistol Pete might bear associations with Basketball and a notorious gunslinger from the wild west, but in Sweden it’s a name associated with the sound of House. Inspired by a graffiti artist, Peter Eriksson took the name Pistol Pete when he made the move from Hip Hop to House and joined the dub […]
