    Well-Written Beats

    Why is this "beat-based" pairing of Cornershop's Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres not credited to Cornershop? Answer: Why was Beck's Mutations promoted as not actually the follow-up to Odelay? Answer: When albums scrap the songbook approach for run-on con...

    Motorbooty Techno

    DJ Assault is almost weird enough to make up for all the rap DJs who give mixtapes a bad name. While others show off their silly turntable tricks or exclusive freestyle verses from second-rate artists, DJ Assault prowls the outskirts of hip-hop, reun...

    Move Over, Britney - Is Trance the Future Top 40?

    Even though the "electronica" big bang went boom a couple of years ago, dance music enthusiasts managed to win a few Pyrrhic victories when Fatboy Slim, Prodigy, and the Chemical Brothers cracked the Top 40. But they weren't the revolution everyone h...
