better known for guns and a guy in green tights... lesser known for music and everything else.
..so here be some musical nuggets from the midlands.
Electronic post-punk stuffs from 4 well boom whippersnappers from notts signed to Heavenly Records. We've known em for ages now and they keep getting better and better. Singer/Guitar wrangler Arne Blackman also bashes out a few remixes every now and then for the likes of Klaxons & Good Books which you can find here
Clarky Cat - Decide
Shit Disco - Reactor Party (Arne Blackman Remix)
19 year old lillica is on his way places. i knew that ages ago and now he's gone and proved it...he's remixed the likes of Does It Offend You, Yeah! & Dead Kids, started a clubnight at Stealth called Fresh Out Of Death & signed to Botchip & Scarper. Not bad eh?
His debut EP is out on the 14th of January via B&S and here's a little taster of the things to come...
Lillica Libertine - Loose Lips Sink Ships

started as a duo responsible in part for the Klaxons first getting noticed with thier amazing Gravitys Rainbow mix which in turn got em signed to french fashion/music label Kitsuné. Now a one-man disco-biscuit-hero he's moved down to the big smoke but he's still churning out the remixes and starting parties wherever he DJ's..so we'll let him off for leaving us.
Not only is Matt a fucking great guy, he's willing to prove it by doing you all a special mix of disco classics.
Nightmoves - Chins Up Disco Mix (EXXXCLUSIVE)
