10 Reasons To Get Out Of Bed In The Morning

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

As we’ve started our journey into 2018 it seems only fitting to look back and pay tribute to the great music which excited our ears over the past year. While it seemed as if most of the world went mad in 2017, there was at least a constant supply of great new music which made getting out of bed and engaging with humanity seem worthwhile.

Lost Tapes and Lush House Grooves: An Interview With Swayzak

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

Twenty years is a long time in dance music. Just ask all those ’next big things‘ who took a tumble, got lost in a cloud of coke, or found themselves forgotten and discarded by the world at large. To stay relevant in an ever shifting and competitive environment is no mean feat. Yet, over the last two decades, David Brown’s Swayzak project has made this achievement seem as easy as enraging a Daily Mail reader. By JOHN BITTLES

Welcome To The Alien Disko: An Interview With Markus Acher

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

There comes a time in everyone’s life when you find yourself standing in a muddy field with a plastic glass of warm ‚beer‘, straining to hear the muffled soundsystem in the far off distance thinking to yourself, »I’d rather be home watching EastEnders«. By JOHN BITTLES

Towards A Dubb Everlasting: New Album Reviews

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

As I write this I have cocooned myself in a semi-professionally built pillow fort which I am hoping will withstand the coming winter months and keep me protected and warm. Right now the outside world seems so hideous that hibernating for as long as humanly possible seems like an excellent idea. Therefore, for the next few months I shall be hibernating with nothing but my loved one, a bumper packet of M&Ms and a batch of great music to keep me company. By JOHN BITTLES

Are You Anywhere: New Album Reviews

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

After a short break, during which I twiddled my thumbs, baked cakes and listened to nothing but the sound of silence, I’m back with some great new albums to meet all your listening needs. Unless you have been eagerly awaiting the new Cliff Richard record there is bound to be something for you here. By JOHN BITTLES

An Ode To Better Times: New Album Reviews

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

In the wrong hands, nostalgia can be little more than a marketing tool, something which can be watered down, bottled up and sold. Yet, when done right it can arouse a wealth of emotions in the listener.
There is a distinct tinge of nostalgia to this week’s album reviews. From Kölsch’s homage to his teenage years on 1989 to 90s indebted new LPs from Bicep and Steffi. And if that isn’t enough, we have Dimitri From Paris delving into the Salsoul label’s archives, Lone’s wistful leap into the DJ Kicks series, and the return of 90s trip hop icon Tricky.

Music To Beat those Brexit Blues: September New Album Reviews

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

With Brexit looming ever closer, and the idiots in society having, somehow, taken control, we need escapism now more than ever. Cause let’s face it, with the media indulging in ever more divisive rhetoric, Trump and Kim Jong-un having a nuclear pissing contest, and Robbie Williams being an ongoing concern, it seems that reality has nothing to offer but misery and dismay.
