  • Luke Vibert: Ridmik

    The renown British DJ hypes up some acid-inspired beats, but fails to capture attention.

    With several monikers and more than 20 albums to his credit, British DJ and producer Luke Vibert has paved the way for electronic innovation since his meteoric rise in the early 1990s. He, along with colleagues Aphex Twin and Squarepusher, has proven instrumental in fusing unconventional sounds to create an amalgam of material populated with accessibility. But with his latest product Ridmik, the artist finds himself at odds with contemplation and creativity, which allows for…

  • Nirvana's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction, Mars Volta's New Supergroup and George Pettit's Dead Tired in Our News Roundup

    As always, the music world was full of its fair share of headline-grabbing news. If you found keeping up with it all a bit overwhelming, fear not: our news roundup is here to help.

    First off, Nirvana were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. However, they had a little help from their friends. Filling in for the late Kurt Cobain, we had a string of A-list replacements, including St. Vincent, Lorde, Kim Gordon and Joan Jett. Of course, Nirvana weren't the only ones inducted, as we saw the likes of Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Kiss, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, and Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band also making their way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Head here to watch some of the highlights.

  • Nine Inch Nails and Coil: Recoiled

    This merger of two industrial pioneers can be impressive, but never quite matches the original versions.

    Coil was an immensely influential industrial music band since the inception of the genre. This makes it no surprise that Nine Inch Nails’ front-man (and arguable only “real” member) Trent Reznor long cited Coil as a major influence on his music. That influence, of course, spreads to many other bands, from Aphex Twin to Chris Connelly to K.K. Null and the band How To Destroy Angels (which was named after a Coil song). The many…

  • Squarepusher x Z-Machines: Music for Robots EP

    This is not music for computers, this is music for robots; soulful, hyperactive, possessed by the spirit of Miles Davis, robots.

    Tom ‘Squarepusher’ Jenkinson makes some of the most breathtaking, emotive electronic music ever recorded and/or performed. This should not be news, as he has been blowing my mind since at least 1995’s Feed Me Weird Things and has not really released anything remotely mediocre since that time. Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada seem to receive more glory, and I do not mean to diminish their accomplishments, but for my money, Squarepusher reigns supreme within…
