But Listen: 020: Various Artists – Modern Destruction

I got this compilation sent to me by the guys from Cyanotic – it is a sampler, effectively, for their label Glitch Mode Recordings, 16 tracks of industrial, drum’n’bass and electro.

Last Saturday, I ended up heavily involved in Stay-In-Fest. As well as DJing an early afternoon set that seemed to go down well (setlist: /DJ/Guest/098), four online/video interviews that I’d conducted with different artists over the previous couple of weeks were broadcast.

/Countdown/2010s/Tracks/140-121

Continuing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the fourth part of the best tracks of the 2010s. This has been an interesting, and memory-laden trip doing this list. I’ve dredged up a few memories, reconnected with a few songs I’d not heard […]

Onto week three of /Countdown/2019 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best albums of the year.

Countdown: 2017: Albums

Onto week three of Countdown: 2017 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best albums of the year.

Memory of a Festival: 028: Infest 2017

All it took was arriving in Bradford on Friday, and I knew that I still loved this festival. There was that familiar buzz of anticipation as we stepped off the platform, looking forward to the fun to come, however this year was tinged of course with a bittersweet sadness over what was going to be […]

Welcome to the Future: 006: Music news round-up 04-August 2017

There have been a few comments recently about how difficult it is to keep up with new releases, new tours, and general music news (I have the same problem) – particularly in the UK, as various sites in Europe and North America are already pretty good for this in our scene. (Release Magazine in Europe, […]
