many prominent figures throughout history have proclaimed that you can get by with a little help from your friends now whilst this is a lovely romantic notion and does, we suppose have some (albeit very small) grounding in reality you need a bit more if you want to progress through life as opposed to simply jog in. zoo look are a good example of this, whilst sam, alex and craig have been friends for quite some time, forging their completely plutonic relationship through djing together, their latest release, number 11 on join the dots is forged from more than simply the burning fires of friendship, its born out of a love of all things deep as well as house music based. they may be mates but you can also get along very well if you have bags of talent too.
white hills newest and most energized recording to date is bursting with raw energy packed into their most concise songs to date. fear not long time white hills fans, there is still loads of killer guitar work and fuzzed out psychedelia on frying on this rock.

manmakemusic continue their adventure into the musical hinterland beyond bass, techno, house and garage with two cuts from new signing, trikk. hailing from porto, portugal, and a recent addition to londons kaleidoscopic music scene, trikk effortlessly marries old school charm with new school edge. a-side, ‘jointly’, takes robert hood-esque jackin’ techno drums and unites them with twisted garage vocal chops and relentless bass. on the flip, ‘i fall down’ takes things down a gear with an emotive mix of cavernous synth lines, heartbroken vocals and skipping drums which harks back to the finest moments of broken beat.
this selection is about the tracks that would inform henry street, the tracks found deep within the complex strings of its dna, the tracks championed by pettibone on kiss or by washington at the studio, or those dredged from crates across the city. half-heard anthems from italy tracked down through forensic research in the record shops of the five boroughs, rare dub versions of classics that you wont be finding on ebay anytime soon. this is real disco.
