Sad news folks, the mighty Smallfish is set to close in Jan 08. We'd like to take the opportunity to thank them for their long standing service to all things leftfield and wish them the very best for the future.

The only molecule of goodness from this sad event is the massive 70% sale. Go show your support and purchase-a-plenty to send them off into the sunset smiling :)

Yes yes! the fantastic 365 Days Project returns for 2007. The project releases a selection of weird and wonderful sounds DAILY for a whole year. A fantastic achievement that supplies the best in obscure audio selections.

The easiest way to keep up is to head on over to the WFMU hosted 365 days blog and choose one of the RSS formats for your podcatcher.

Dubstep squat party, this Friday 30th March.

This current wave of U.K. dance is the most promising thing we've heard come out of the club scene in a long time. Underpinned by heavy old skool sub bass and half step dub rhythms that provide a canvas for sonic experimentation, the shear depth of sound gives producers the space to explore, re-invent and redefine a variety of influences from Jungle, Hip Hop to Techno, all punctuated by an undertone of urban decay and dystopian future.

You wanna find out if all the hype is deserved ? - Go check it out...Basssssss.....

Next generation of synthesizer / digital audio performance tool anyone ? Reactable is a "state-of-the-art multi-user electro-acoustic music instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface" The video demo is fairly self explanatory to anyone with a basic understanding of synthesis. We were totally blown away by this kit and we'd love to get our hands on it ! Hopefully tools like this will help to advance the performance aspect of digital music which is often comparable and about as exciting as watching someone check their emails..
