Label Spotlight: Glitterbox

Over the summer, myself and a few mates were lucky enough to grace the white isles (Ibiza) for the second time in our short lives. 2017 was arguably a transitional year for the Island and it was clear going into it that a lot had changed. One of biggest developments was the illustrious Space’s closure and reopening as the new state-of-the-art, Ushuaia owned Hï Ibiza. All the spotlight seemed to be on the club’s biggest residents in Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz and Black Coffee but all the talk when on the Island seemed to be about their Glitterbox party on Fridays. Glitterbox has come a long way from its more arcane parties at ‘Booom Club’ in 2014, since hosting a series at Space in 2016 and th

Flashback:Motown- Civil Rights and Automobiles

The two previous editions of Flashback have looked at musical scenes that were intrinsically linked to the cities where they originated from: the Summer of Love with San Francisco, and Punk with New York and London. Yet perhaps no movement has been so linked to a city as Motown was with Detroit, even taking its name from the city’s reputation for car production (“Motor town”). Motown was important not only musically, but also culturally, as an African-American label, genre and company, peaking at the same time as the US civil rights movement.

The Bandwagon: Greta Van Fleet

Photo via: The Morning Call The roll of this week’s Bandwagon has more than its fair share of rock. In a short space of time Greta Van Fleet have solidified themselves as the hardest hitters in rock and rolls new breed of heavyweight and the recent release of 8 track EP 'From the Fires' has catapulted them into the forefront of the music world perception. And it is not hard to see why. 8 incredibly well crafted, classic rock songs demonstrate a stylistic and musical maturity from the young four-piece out of Frankenmuth, Michigan. Josh Kiszka (vocals), Jake Kiszka (guitar), Sam Kiszka (bass), and Danny Wagner (drums) aged between 18 and 21, sound as if they have been playing together for deca

An Interview with: Subterraneans

Subterraneans are a four-piece punk-charged funk fusion band who hail from Winchester; we spent a short time with them finding out how they met, their favourite bands and what it's like being a female-fronted band. Hey guys! What are your names and roles in the band? Joe: I play guitar. Georgia: I’m on bass and questionable backing vocals.

Label Spotlight: Allergy Season

On a recent YouTube binge of track digging I stumbled across John Barera & Paul Morse’s track ‘O.G.’. A blissful but banging record, easy on the ears, but what really caught my attention was the inventive EP artwork, mimicking some sort of painkiller or medication (see picture below). Delving into the uploaders YouTube channel ‘Allergy season’ I soon realised this was much more than cool EP artwork. Allergy Season, a record label set up and run by NYC’s Physical Therapy in 2013 to promote ‘genre-free, highly emotive dance music.’ It’s seen a string of well received releases from artists like Norman Nodge, Blondes and Umfang and has been a platform for him to release two of his own EP’s.
