Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Going by the number of overly cheery adverts on the telly I think it is safe to assume that Christmas is on the way. With everyone from family to friends willing to embrace this over-commercialized rubbish by demanding presents from yourself make the break from the slimy claw of capitalism this year by simply spending your hard-earned money on yourself.

Reflections Of A Strange Existence: New Singles Reviews

Bittles' Magazine

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Sometimes it can seem that buying singles has become a bit of a dying art! In the age of downloads, people seem to want throwaway songs to play on their iPhone rather than something they can actually touch and feel. Here in Belfast for instance the last place that would regularly get in new dance 12inches has given it up because there simply wasn’t the demand.By JOHN BITTLES

Peel Back The Noise To Reveal The Sound: New Album Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Supergroups don’t work! We all know this, right? At times it can seem as if forming a supergroup is nothing more than an excuse to get together with some mates, dick around, consume copious amounts of drugs, and issue the results of a farting contest on deluxe vinyl while wanking on in interviews about how you have created ‚great art‘. This need not always be the case though! By JOHN BITTLES

The Lure Of The Slow Knife: New Album Reviews

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

I know I may sound overly romantic saying this, but a great album should have the power to erase daily stresses and strains. With world affairs and current politics seemingly more depressing than ever we need our creative arts to step up and remove us, however temporarily, from the horrors of everyday life. This week I will be highlighting some of the LPs which have accomplished this feat by stealing my time and creating an addictive craving in my very soul. By JOHN BITTLES

Ode To A Feral Child: An Interview With Schakal Records

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

When I first heard the Somber Clarity EP by AntiAlias, the very first release on new Berlin based label Schakal Records, it felt as if I had discovered a brand new friend. Deeply hypnotic, trance-tinged, sexy and propulsive it leapt right out of the speakers and into my heart. Backed up by a long, percussive remix by Midas 104 & Jonas Saalbach, the record seemed to make June 2015 a great time to be alive. By JOHN BITTLES

The Beauty Of Noise: An Interview With Katie Gately

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

With the world today seemingly dominated by the stale and the dull we need our musical mavericks more than ever! Since musicians who are prepared to take chances are rarer than a politician who would refuse a bribe, those who ignore structure, sneer at genre, or confound as much as delight deserve to be cherished by all. One such artist is new Tri Angle Records signing Katie Gately whose debut LP, Color, will act as a soothing balm to anyone tired and angry with the lack of originality and risk-taking in modern life.

Blinded By The Sun: An Interview With Phil Kieran

Bittles' Magazine

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

Phil Kieran is something of a musical chameleon. Shifting between tempos and genres with glee, he is a DJ/producer who, over a long and distinguished career has never been content to continuously revisit one sound. From the tough techno of his celebrated EPs on Soma, to the low-slung funk of his Le Carousel alias, taking in any number of twisted delights in between, Mr Kieran ably fits the definition of master of all trades.

Dinky

In Search Of Valor: An Interview With Dinky

Music | Bittles’ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

No one could ever accuse house icon Dinky of being a one trick pony! Over a long and varied career her musical output and DJ sets have incorporated deep techno, hazy ambiance, hedonistic acid, classic house, alternative pop, and much more. Her latest single Casa (released earlier this year) was a spell-bindingly deep slice of Chicago-inspired house that is already sitting pretty as one of the songs of the year. In contrast, the album Dimension D saw Dinky embrace her inner singer-songwriter, while the warmth she managed to inject into the often monotonous tones of minimal on the May Be Later LP means it’s still a firm favourite of mine.

With UK clubs closing faster than Donald Trump can find people to offend, finding a safe place to dance on a Saturday night can seem futile at times. Recently London institution Fabric joined the likes of Plastic People and The Arches in closing their doors for good! By JOHN BITTLES
