[Above image credit - NME] Set of the Year: Pearson Sound Garage Only Set – London Underground, Glastonbury 2017 Having moved to London fairly recently, 2017 has easily been the year when I was most exposed to the dance music scene.

A Review: Frank Mowatt’s 2017

Album Highlight 2017 Colin Stetson - All This I Do for Glory https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSaVYSpqRNg&list=PLZqsyBiYZFQ3ZgLuZqRcb5PDgDxSWI2jp Colin Stetson’s album All This I Do For Glory is unlike any music I have heard before, but there is a good reason for that.

Release: Etapp Kyle - Ahora [Ost Gut Ton] Looking back over a whole year, it’s difficult to select a favourite release. I’m normally most excited by recent finds, and few tracks have enough staying power to stick with me. Etapp Kyle’s Ahora is an exception to this. I first heard it dropped by Function in…Read more A Review: Gavin’s 2016
