Reflections Of A Strange Existence: New Singles Reviews

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

Blinded By The Sun: An Interview With Phil Kieran

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.

Nightmares & Ravine Dreams: New Singles Reviewed

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

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

Music For Boys, Girls, Queens And Kings: New Album Reviews

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

After a short break where Titel Kulturmagazin went on an 18-30 holiday by mistake, we return this week with more album reviews than any sane person could ever need. After having to endure the tortured strangulations of EBM, and the hen party screeches of Ibiza for the last fortnight, fantastic albums by 2814, Wild Beasts, Bryan Ferry, Dinosaur Jr., Conduct, Gerd Janson, John Roberts, Riley Reinhold, Carl Craig are like manna to our ears.

All Music Has Limits: July New Singles Reviewed

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

Before TITEL goes on a well-deserved holiday for two weeks there is a load of new music, so good I simply had to review. In fact, with so many superb new releases by Thomas Ragsdale, Dinky, Synkro, Solar Bears, Kassem Mosse, Sepalcure and more hitting record store shelves this month, I shall dispense with the pleasantries altogether and get straight to the reviews.

Adventures In Daydreams - Travel EP

Have House, Will Travel: An Interview With Adventures In Daydreams

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

Back in 1994 Sunday School famously declared that ›House Is A Feeling‹. This is a message that is all but forgotten by the majority of dance music producers today, yet acts such as Adventures In Daydreams keep the original ethos of house music alive. I first came across the duo’s work two years ago through the melodic headrush of their Spirits Of The Forest EP. The record’s lush electronica and hushed beats conjure a swirl of emotion which stays with you long after it has come to an end. From the Sasha-style Sometimes, the loose synths action of Sinking Feeling, the Innervisions-esque swoon of Saw Erect, to the harmonious dance floor thump of Further Information, a love affair was instantly born.

DJ Kicks, Precious Systems and Late Night Tales: New Album Reviews

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

With festival season upon us quality new releases are somewhat thin on the ground. For some reason, once summer kicks in, people are more than happy to spend all their money listening to a crappy band playing on a rubbish sound system, while surrounded by idiots throwing lager in the air and rolling around in the mud. With the cost of going to a festival ever increasing, who has money left to buy new music these days? By JOHN BITTLES

Only House Remains: May New Singles Reviewed

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

Sometimes I can get a bit frustrated with music. In today’s internet filled world it seems like there is new music everywhere you look, which can get a little overwhelming at times. Gone are the days when you would have saved up for weeks to buy that one cherished record, listening to it over and over again, simply because you had nothing else to put on. By JOHN BITTLES

Music For These Post Prince Times: April/May New Album Reviews.

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

With the sad passing of musical icon Prince this week, it has genuinely been difficult to get excited about new music again. The need to wallow in his legacy was overwhelming, with albums such as Purple Rain, Sign O The Times and 1999 demanding both tears and repeated plays. Yet Prince himself was never one to dwell on the past, or stand still. He constantly strove forward, reinventing himself, and bringing out new material with such regularity that all but the most ardent of fans struggled to keep up. By JOHN BITTLES

Music Restricted Area: April’s New Albums Reviewed

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

To say that there are some great albums out this month is a bit like saying that David Cameron is a little bit dodge. Amongst these new aural gems are the sublime electronica of Sasha, Yoshimi, Moderat and Dino Sabatini, the funked-up house of Potions, the alien beats and rhythms of Babyfather and Ash Koosha, the fuzzed-up guitar noise of Bleached, and more. By JOHN BITTLES
