We Want Neither Clean Hands Nor Beautiful Souls: New Single Reviews

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

The life blood of DJs everywhere, my love of the humble 12-Inch began in the 80s, with extended versions of the hits of the day. From Madonna to Duran Duran via Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Luther Vandross (seriously, the extended version of Criticize is dance floor gold), my teenage years were spent tracking down overly long mixes of well known songs. In 2018 it can seem easier to purchase a mail order bride with a bad attitude than a slice of wax, but creatively at least, the 12-Inch is in rude heath. By JOHN BITTLES

Melancholic Melodies And Organic Grooves: An Interview With Chic Miniature

in Bittles' Magazine/Menschen/Porträt & Interview

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

As a lover of electronic music it can get a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with the number of new releases coming out each week. For every Compro or Skylax House Explosion there are numerous functional house and techno records which are simply content to exist. This is why albums such as Ficción Futuro by Chic Miniature can seem like such a godsend. Formed of eight pieces of dance floor delight, the record manages to do a very rare thing these days, in that it works perfectly as a whole. By JOHN BITTLES 

Moomin

Thinking Of Yesterday’s Tomorrows: An Interview With Moomin

in Bittles' Magazine/Menschen/Porträt & Interview

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

Berlin based artist Moomin has, over the years, been responsible for some of the finest moments to grace a dance floor. Best known for releases on labels such as Smallville, Fuck Reality, Aim and his own Closer imprint, Sebastian Genz is a producer who’s music is emotive, thoughtful and funky as hell.

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

There are so many excellent new albums around right now that, this week, I hardly know where to begin. We have house magnificence from Demuja and Kann, gorgeously deep ambiance from Gas, the leftfield techno brilliance of Jon Hopkins, Forest Swords, Max Cooper and Aïsha Devi and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES

This Our Last Resolve: New Album Reviews.

in Bittles' Magazine

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

Those tired of bland, uniform music are in for a treat with this week’s selection of album reviews. Masters of angular beats, leftfield rhythms and discordant grooves, the only thing which all the following artists have in common is their healthy distaste for the norm. By JOHN BITTLES 

Mikkel Metal

Just Enough Light: An Interview With Mikkel Metal

in Bittles' Magazine/Menschen/Porträt & Interview

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

Mikkel Metal is an artist who first caught my attention back in 2006 with the excellent Victimizer album on Kompakt. A record of stunning depth, I enjoy losing myself in its bass-infused sounds to this day. Further releases on labels such as Echocord, Tartelet and Semantica cemented his place in my affections and are rightly revered amongst those with a love of what has been loosely termed the ‚dub-techno sound‘. By JOHN BITTLES 

BitMag: Space - Magic Fly

in Bittles' Magazine/Platte

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

In the second part of our two week 12” extravaganza we have all sorts of electronic goodness sure to stir the loins. There are the shiver-inducing grooves of Ghost Vision, Soela and Demuja, the progressive house wallop of Bicep, the leftfield techno of I:Cube, the classic funk of Space, a four track comp of house freshness from the Shall Not Fade crew and tons more. By JOHN BITTLES

This week, and the next, I shall be ignoring the fact that it is Record Store Day to bring you a selection of the finest 12-inch records known to man. In part one alone we have the lush house grooves of Peggy Gou, Ross From Friends and LK, the rich electronica of Francis Harris and Darren Nye, the noisy funk of Rex The Dog, the sample heavy grooves of Bassically, and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES 

The Blow - Brand new abyss

Chemistry Lessons And BrainFogs: New Album Reviews

in Bittles' Magazine

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

With the dreaded Record Store Day just around the corner, I would suggest visiting your local vinyl emporium before it gets swamped by a terrifying mixture of Rolling Stones re-issues and Discogs abusing culture vultures. To help you on your way, this week I’ll be reviewing some of the fantastic new albums which have been been gleefully stimulating the pleasure receptors of my mind. We have swoon-inducing electronica from Chris Carter and Steven Rutter, the warm house tones of Will Saul and Booka Shade, the lush Balearica of E Ruscha V, and lots more. By JOHN BITTLES
