Not much up right now but this is Diplo’s new record label. So far the only known signing is Bonde Do Role, a group of 2 djs with one female mc he met in Brazil. Check Turntable Lab for a cd promo while you wait for the vinyl to drop in February.
Oh, and I cosign on the messageboard.
Check out this month’s The Wire for an interesting article on Edan and if you don’t own it, why not buy a copy of Beauty And The Beat on Lewis Recordings.

You can download the whole of the Cyberntic Broadcasting System top 100 tunes of 2005! It is an interesting listen. Lots of mad italo tunes and electro. Inspiring as well. I am slowly working my way through it. I see one of my fave tunes from last year has made it into the top ten. Lindstrom – I Feel Space. Awesome.
I love records that use speak and spells! There is a new 12″ out on Dalriada records by some people called Sleepless Crew and it is a wicked little acid house number. It’s got some wicked synths in it as well. The b-sides are ok, but the a-side is the bomb. Seek it out if you can. Piccadilly Records in Manchester were selling it and so is Rubadub in Glasgow.
Has RTHQ really been going for that long? Check out his flashback article. I contributed some photos of mine to it.
I think there might be a Massive Attack greatest hits package called Collected.
Tracklisting could be as follows.
1 Safe From Harm
2 Unfinished Sympathy
3 Day Dreaming
7 Better Things
10 Inertia Creeps
11 What Your Sings
12 Future Proof
13 Live With Me
With Live For Me being a new single due for release on the 13th of March this year.
You can now download the DFA radio mixes that you could buy before Christmas.
Wow! Someone has compiled and linked a top 50 music videos of 2005 and it is well worth checking out! Warning, you may spend an unhealthy amount of time watching these.
Parsely Sound have a new mp3 up on their site. It’s called astral telephone and it is quite strange, as you would expect. They should have a new single out on Destructible Records soon? I think?
