‘Aunty Wendy’s Wedding In Wales’ – Desert Sound Colony I first heard this tune during Katiusha and Roar‘s blistering set at the last Come Up Records party. Warped breakbeats, rattling bass, earworm melodies and wicked bleeps ‘n’ bloops got me asking fellow Open Access Zone member and ID-extraordinaire Christian Eede what tune it was, to which […]
‘Who Me?’ – LAPS Ladies As Pimps – or LAPS for short – is the side project of Golden Teacher’s Cassie Ojay (AKA Lady Two Collars) and Alicia Matthews (AKA Sue Zuki) from Organs Of Love. Their previous outfits have exported some of the best music from Glasgow’s underground scene in recent years, with both […]
‘Swurlk (Snarlfingercroak Mix)’ – EOD I came across this track through Bjarki’s label ‘bbbbbb‘ records that kicked off at the beginning of 2017 The Volruptus ‘Homeblast’ EP, released in Summer, also definitely deserves a mention.

Skee Mask – Routine From the second edition of Ilian Tape’s Skee Series, we present to you the exquisite ‘Routine’ – a dreamy piece of breakbeat-oriented techno from the exceptionally talented Skee Mask. Enjoy!
‘Annunciation’ by Strange Boy As the year has gone on I’ve found myself attracted to increasingly expansive and romantic sounds, both for the dance floor and beyond. Strange Boy’s Annunciation grows from a single pulsing sonic seed to an explosive emotional outpouring over the course of its five minutes, with operatic vocals and surging arpeggiators […]
