Lost Albums: BETH DITTO EP

Not an album at all of course, but BETH DITTO's self-titled four track EP from early 2011 showed what she was capable of when presented with a juicy electronic soundtrack away from the funk laden punk of GOSSIP. Following their first collaboration ‘Cruel Intentions’ on SIMAN MOBILE DISCO’s album ‘Temporary Pleasure’ in 2010, the dance duo acted as producers on this brilliant solo EP.  Throughout the four songs, Ditto’s voice was rich, emotive and powerful.

BOYTRONIC interview

Since 1983, the Hamburg based BOYTRONIC have dazzled with non-quintessential electronica, not quite fitting into any box. Many line-up changes ensured freshness but guaranteed durability. After ten years since their previous opus ‘Dependence’, they’re back with a dazzling ‘Jewel’. It marks the 2017 reincarnation of the trio with Ingo Hauss, Hayo Lewerentz and James Knights. TEC has a pleasure of chatting to Hayo Lewerentz of BOYTRONIC just in time for their eleventh studio release. More Inside ›

BLANCMANGE + CURXES Live at 229

At one of the most prolific stages of his career, Neil Arthur is also on an artistic high with the new BLANCMANGE long player ‘Unfurnished Rooms’ easily surpassing the lame 2017 effort by another act who were also showcased on the influential ‘Some Bizarre Album’ in 1981. Playing host to the second date of the ‘Unfurnished Rooms’ tour was London’s 229, a spacious new venue with an unusually high stage opposite Great Portland Street tube station. More Inside ›

MATTHIAS Line In

Once upon a time in 1994, the Canadian radio station Z95.3 FM played a song... The song was called ‘Everytime’. The listeners went nuts thinking it was the latest serving from ERASURE, but it wasn’t... The band was called FRONT & CENTRE and the audiences in and around Vancouver marvelled at the track. Fast forward a few years and Matt Danforth, the musical brains behind FRONT & CENTRE returns as MATTHIAS with his mini album called ‘Line In’. More Inside ›

Introducing KNIGHT$

Coming over like the love child of Richard Butler and Neil Tennant, KNIGHT$ is making waves with his self-confessed brand of sparkly Britalo! Formally of London duo SCARLET SOHO who were capable of a good tune or two as proven by ‘Gigolo’ and ‘Two Steps From Heartache’, James Knights has a new electropop anthem in ‘Alligator’. With its unashamedly glitterball disco drive, KNIGHT$ plays on his crowd pleasing nature like KID KASIO collaborating with LES RYTHMES DIGITALES. More Inside ›
