REVIEW: Andrew Hung – The Plane

If you could channel the adrenaline from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s (thanks spellcheck) gym sessions and make music out of it, the result would sound quite a lot like The Plane.    Andrew Hung is half of the duo ‘Fuck Buttons’ and has lived an interesting life so far, highlights including: working as a technician for Babestation and opening the London 2012 …

REVIEW: Jam City – Dream A Garden

If you’re listening to ‘Dream a Garden‘, use surround and a serious sub as not to insult the industrial sound and the on point ambience. The newest addition to the Jam City catalogue hits deeper than the previous effort ‘Classical Curves’. Coming in after a night on the liquor, laying in bed and slipping slowly into madness is the best …

REVIEW: Pearson Sound – “Pearson Sound”

Messrs. Pseudo and Nym are agreed that, if this release is going to receive stars, they are going to be really big stars. Not the sort that are going supernova, mind, but more the sort that are slowly cooling into lumps of iron.
