Solarstone - Restless 4. A.M. (Jam El Mar Remix)

On his musical imagining of your first 24 hours on Ibiza, Solarstone used the ‘island’ album’s ‘Restless 4.a.m.’ to encapsulate that exact time of the clubbing night. A moody, pensive bass-heavy piece, with a portentous nod to ‘Tubular Bells’, it was a transitional tune that - in a…

Roger Shah Presents Jukebox 80s - Nightride

The last ten months have seen many artists pivot, experiment, branch out and generally direct their attentions to other musical areas. To group the latest longplayer from Roger Shah in that though would be to overlook a musician who already album-moves out of ‘his lane’ one year in every two.…


Dennis Sheperd - Find The Sunrise

A fair amount is made in music’s realm of ‘the personal album’. In truth though all artist albums are inherently personal - the only distinction being to what degree. By his own acknowledgement, Dennis wrote his third longform predominantly for fans, but also - in part – for himself. Starting the…

Sneijder & Billy Gillies - Afterdark 003 [Belfast]

Mirroring a musical region that’s had a particular impact on him has been the M.O. of Sneijder’s ‘Afterdark’ album run since it embarked back in 2018.
