Keeping it Subliminal

[Artist Highlight]

I take comfort in the underground music community. It is a privilege to inhabit a sphere satisfied to rumble safely below the radar of a mainstream culture obsessed with causing commotion. When EDM heroes and social media superstars spew garbage online or on the mic, I tend to resist catering to the...

30 minutes of Kahn

A Bass Education

In our last feature, we did our best to explain the significance of the Bristolian scene and the impact it had on Peverelist’s musical heritage. As for the musician we’re paying homage to in #28, the 'Bristol sound' is simply part of the greater story. Kahn breathes musicality, and living in Bristol...

30 minutes of Peverelist

A Bass Education

Generally speaking, we attribute the birth of the dubstep genre to South London. One of the sound's earliest adopters, however, was Bristol - nurturing and raising the newborn UK underground offspring like a teacher does with a student or parent with child. And while it's hard to capture the phenomenon...

Our goal is to revive the series to the same level, frequency and spirit as in previous years - we've no good excuse as to why it's taken so long to get #26 out but the upside of...

“Putting the love of the music first”

Donga x FatKidOnFire

Of the label managers running viable vinyl independent imprints in the UK (and I mean labels who survive more than a few releases), Donga's venerable stable puts most others to shame. The DJ and producer somehow finds time to foster young talent, release truly astounding music and look after a number of...
