An Interview with Jonsson/Alter

Bittles‘ Magazine

Like any right-minded music lover I fell a little bit in love with Mod, the debut album by Jonsson/Alter upon its release in the cold autumn months of last year. It was the type of record that drifted into your consciousness and resided there unobserved until you came to realise how completely empty your life would be without it. So when news emerged of a follow-up I have to admit that I punched the air in delight (for me as a typical working-class male that is one huge display of emotion. Seriously!). By JOHN BITTLES

A Regal Conversation with The Queen of House!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview with Screamin’ Rachael

Rachael Cain, or Screamin’ Rachael as she is better known, is a bit of a legend in the house music scene. Labelled the »Queen of House« by those illustrious people at Billboard magazine, the name has stuck since it seems quite apt. Over the years Rachael has had a string of releases and been heavily involved with the legendary Trax Records. She has also invented her own musical genre (hip-house) together with Africa Bambaataa, and released some of the most sleazy, euphoric and downright funky music to be found. By JOHN BITTLES

Too Beautiful For You? An Interview With Bluredism

Bittles‘ Magazine

xAs you know we quite like to champion exciting new talent here at Titel-Magazine! And as Bluredism is relatively new to these ears, and extremely talented we thought it was about time we got him in for an interview. The lavish praise he has received from Panorama Bar regulars Ryan Elliot and Martyn shows just how well-respected Bristol-based sonic adventurer Bradley Albertides is. Having previously treated us to some rather funky beat-based 12 inches under various guises he has just sneaked out his very first artist album. By JOHN BITTLES
Fuck Buttons

An Interview with F**k B*****s

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

As future music historians will no doubt agree, there is a lot of derivative and unimaginative MOR-type music in the world right now. From the pop-dance of Avicii to the wet indie of Bastille there is enough rubbish around to make the average music purist’s ears bleed. What we really need is a record that hits the listener hard, like a well needed slap to the face. That not only alienates your ›nice‹ friends but makes your parents scream »What the fuck is that crap you’re playing? It’s not even music, you know!«

A Brief Chat with Ikonika

Bittles‘ Magazine

To end our epic trilogy of interviews we have the extremely talented and funky Ikonika. Now, you know when lazy journalists are writing about female producers they always point out their gender and how hard it is for a woman to succeed in a male-dominated industry? Then when you’ve finished reading the article you find out they haven’t once bothered to mention the actual music? Luckily Ikonika has never had this problem for one simple reason, which is that her music is so good that you simply have to talk about it, discuss it, and show it off to all of your friends.

In Praise of Good Speakers: An Interview with Mike Paradinas

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

I first stumbled upon the twisted world of Mike Paradinas in 1994 through his remix EP of indie heroes The Auteurs. Across forty odd minutes of sonic experimentation he chewed up the original tracks and added huge layers of distortion until what remained was something of a truly mind-expanding listen. Yet just when it would seem that the tracks were too fucked up for comfort and your ears would start to complain, the music would suddenly break into a heartbreaking melody, or a moment of magnificent beauty that lifted the entire project to epic heights.

Dinky

House Music With vocals? Oh, Go On Then!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

Dinky, real name Alejandra Iglesias, has over the years, produced some of the most sensual and exciting house music around. Releases on Cocoon, Truam, Crosstown Rebels and Wagon Repair have moved clubbers everywhere with their lush tech-house grooves. Single Acid In My Fridge thrust her into the limelight in 2005, and since then each release has been eagerly anticipated by an ever growing batch of clued-up listeners who have fallen for Dinky‘s versatile and ever-shifting sound. Previous albums May Be Later, Anemik and Black Cabaret were all strong records that somehow managed that tricky task of working as club music just as well as for listening at home. By JOHN BITTLES
