    New mix: Soak

    Oh, hello there. I made this mix in January and I’ve only just put it out now, but since summer just arrived, the time seems right. If it feels good, do it. Click here to download from Mediafire Mixed Jan 27, 2019 by Deemo for a-void.ca Original photo by Henk L from FreeImages

    Apparently I am not dead? Anyways I made you a new mix.

  • New mix: Brothers

    New mix: Brothers

    Been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you etc. Here’s a mix of instrumental and vocal grime and other things – don’t sleep on Krucial, there’s a reason he’s on here twice. Click here to download from Mediafire 1. Kellen303 – WHB – WHB EP (Keysound)2. Hanz – King Speed – Plasty I (Tri […]

  • New mix: Smoke

    New mix: Smoke

    We’re still in 2017-land with this one, but don’t let that put you off. I have to admit I missed a whack of good stuff last year in grime, which Butterz’s annual Grime 20XX comps always put me up on, but generally I tried to avoid those cuts since they mix them better than I […]

  • Best Albums of 2017

    Best Albums of 2017

    In the 70s music critics had an edge on the fans – if Richard Meltzer is to be believed, they got free records, invites to parties studded with stars, drugs and other party favours. In 2017 it is becoming increasingly common to not get sent the biggest new releases at all, never mind before they […]

  • New mix: Weaving

    New mix: Weaving

    Astute readers will notice that I haven’t posted a mix since March. I’ve been… busy? I moved continents (which required giving up freelancing music writing – so, blogging’s appeal is somewhat renewed), broke my spleen and tried to make some music of my own. Time to get back to other peoples’. Expect more regular updates […]

  • New mix: Calling Card

    New mix: Calling Card

    Oh, but this was a fun one. It must be spring if there are this many bubbly tracks fighting for space in one mix — minds turning to knuckles-in-the-air outdoor raving and such. I’m a little late with the goods this time but I promise there will be another mix soon. Tracks are coming fast and furious, from […]

  • New mix: Endgame

    New mix: Endgame

    I wish that the URL on FACT Magazine’s obituary for Mark Fisher were literally true – “mark-fisher-k-punk-capitalist-realism-has-died” – rather than what has actually happened. Capitalist Realism is alive, and Mark Fisher a.k.a. k-punk is dead. I didn’t know him, but his writing shaped me as much as any music, and I believe it will go […]

  • The 50 Best Albums of 2016

    The 50 Best Albums of 2016

    In this post: an introduction, reviews of the top 10 albums of the year, a complete top 50 list, and a streaming playlist with a track from every top 50 album save for those not on Spotify. See you in 2017! There were no seismic shifts in the pop landscape in 2016, nor in 2015, […]

    New mix: Who needs a drink?

    The house-y, four-on-the-floor tracks for my November mix were chosen a while before I actually mixed and posted it, and, uh, things are a bit darker now. The title says it all, really. Show up and pour up. Download from Mediafire Mixed Nov 12/2016 by Deemo for a-void.ca
