D.D Dumbo is an artist so original (he's playing solo, yes solo) that it is hard to compare him to anything else. I'm just getting an Alt-J feel, that's all I can say, which is a positive thing for sure. He is featured on London Calling within a few weeks.... Continue reading

I moved this weekend and I quickly realized one weekend of "Golden Oldies" on the radio is enough for me. So let's get back to some better music. I went to new Doornroosje almost two weeks ago. First gig, first day of the new building, I went to check out... Continue reading

A While ago I posted Pin Tweaks' material. and this sort of reminds me of that. Lots of echo, synth and strong lyrics. I'm talking about the new Dorsal Fins track 'Monday Tuesday'. Synthpop seems to be having its second youth. No complaints here. Especially when the songs have enough... Continue reading

After a few nice and intersting remixes by Lxury, now it's time for some "self-made material". And this EP released on GrecoRoman records has some interesting vibes to it. Lxury might be one of those great acts finishing off a festival day for the next few years. Lxury - Permanent... Continue reading

I still owed you guys EAFF's best of july. (Also I started on a London Calling (Amsterdam) playlist for the coming edition.) So here they are. Allah Las has impressed with the liveliness of their instrumental songs and how well they mix with their song that do include vocals. No... Continue reading

A new dutch act I have grown quite fond of lately. After opening the shows for Moss a while ago, Beginners has announced their debut LP will come out this September.

The beauty of this performance was that its beauty was unexpected. RY X's music has been raging across the Indie-scene lately and without doubt it showed some great promise. But I honestly did not see this coming. The music is best described as a slow, but very tense (due to... Continue reading

Jessy Lanza out of Ontario was one of the more exotic acts on last edition of Best Kept Secret festival 2014. A festival with no other comparable act to Jessy Lanza, with her electro R&B, that holds more than you would expect after a quick listen. Firstly I was surprised... Continue reading
