  If you don’t have plans for New Year’s Eve by now, then it’s time to get your shit together, my friend. Time is ticking. However, most people tend to forget that the day before NYE is just as ripe for partying and getting down to some fucking good music. So even if you do […]

[Drum & Bass] Netsky Vs Metrik – Can’t Speak (Ft. Stealth)

Netsky Vs Metrik

  2014 has been quite the massive year for Metrik. Between his wildly popular remix of Gorgon City’s “Unmissable” and his ridiculously diverse Universal Language album, this musician has suddenly become one of DnB’s prime time producers – and for those of you that thought he would just quietly cruise into 2015 from here on […]

[ELECTRONIC] Bare Noize – “Dire/Reticulum”


  Tearing its way out of Pilot Records is the fresh sounding “Dire/Reticulum” release from production duo Bare Noize, whose previous works have come through the likes of Ministry of Sound, EMI and Mau5trap. This double-sided release kicks off with a dark, eerie build, dominated by deep swells of bass and the repetitive pulse of […]



  In my opinion, there’s nothing like some deep, dark techno. It’s trance’s evil twin, in a way; techno feels slightly sinister and decadent when compared to trance’s uplifting melodies, yet both of them share the same musical DNA. Techno is pure energy throughout, whilst trance has a story, but techno should never be without […]

[CONCERT REVIEW/PHOTO RECAP] See You In The Pit: Attila and The Monster Energy Outbreak Tour

[END OF YEAR] Hipster Had A Mainstream Baby: Best Pop 2014 (James Kabat and Kavi’s Pop Powers Unite)


  The bones of a song are good. Sometimes, even, no matter whose mental vagina it crawled out of. Mainstream does not equal low quality, just so long as all the accouterments of the modern studio  are put to use carving a track to its heart. Not acting like child proofing, saving us from anything […]

[THE DAILY SWIM] Imagined Herbal Flows – “Clouds”

[THE DAILY SWIM] Imagined Herbal Flows - "Clouds"

  Welcome to The Daily Swim, a running series on The Sights and Sounds. As a daily swimmer, water has always served as a dichotomy to my psyche – wholly and unswervingly calming in it’s vast simplicity yet at the same time able to harness and create massive amounts of energy. Which is exactly the […]
