Soundsystem Soul

I quietly observe standing in my space... daydreaming. I've been rolling through the Heights on a wave of rugged roots 'n future in the afterglow of the Mezzanine XXI show, not only Mezzanine itself but surrounding Massive Attack records and the productions of the greater Bristol scene, shearing into a sound often termed soundsystem soul. … Continue reading Soundsystem Soul

Prometheus Rising

From Detroit to Bristol: Innovators All Despite all plans to the contrary, radio silence has been the order of the day over the last couple weeks. Just as before, this has been down to mad crazy developments in the overall Parallax Architecture, the intricate process of mountains being moved in binary form.

One of these days I'll have to break down and start doing just that... so consider this the first of … Continue reading Canyon Life

More Canyon

The lists have arrived... Leah and Sari have uploaded their Canyon 25 lists to their respective blogs. You can catch Leah's List at her blog Leah's Thoughts and Sari's List at Musical Sauce. I don't want to give too much away, but there is a very satisfying amount of more recent material in both lists … Continue reading More Canyon
