Interview: Anthony Joseph – Strengthening Caribbean Roots in London Soil (May 2021)

Just like a contemporary storyteller or a London-based calypsonian, Anthony Joseph is a perceptive and insightful narrator of the present days.

Album Review: Altin Gün – Yol [Glitterbeat Records; February 2021]

Altın Gün cruise new avenues on Yol, their 80s synth-pop influenced third album. As the opening track of Altın Gün’s highly-anticipated third album Yol segues into the second-track ‘Ordunun Dereleri’, we hear the sound of traffic speeding along highways towards unknown destinations. Indeed the album documents a journey for the…

Interview: Sarathy Korwar – A “Modern English-Indian” Artist (December 2019)

Albums like More Arriving are windows into the present. Their perspective on the here and now is so spot on and accurate that they sound like the best portrayal of the days we currently live in. After having listened to them, you feel the compulsion to delve further into their…

Album Review: Sarathy Korwar – More Arriving [The Leaf Label; July 2019]

On the list of the worst conversation starters, “Where are you from?” would be right up there. Reducing the person to a Lonely Planet cardboard cut-out is one thing, but when the question is prompted by your accent, complexion or general foreignness, it becomes a euphemism for, “You stick out…

Event Review: We Out Here Festival (Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire; Thursday 15th to Sunday 18 August 2019)

An inaugural festival is always going to be packed with risk and suspense, and after the downpour that Friday night experienced, a breath was held in anticipation of Saturday’s events. However, it is with sheer delight I report that the proceedings seemingly went ahead seamlessly. Saturday I have to jump…

Album Review: Altin Gün – Gece [Glitterbeat Records; April 2019]

On their second album, Altin Gün bring more of their Eastern promise to the fore with a diverse selection of ten tracks, veering from psychedelic rock to electronica, but keeping true to the Turkish folk music which brought together this eclectic, Dutch-based six piece in the first place. It is…

Event Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

The concept of an outdoor jazz festival hardly conjures images of glitter-filled Glastonbury excitement, a young hip crowd and dance-fuelled elation. However, previously exclusive jazz appears to be undergoing a fashion revolution and the grounds of Glynde Place hinted at this. Love Supreme, the UK’s only three-day greenfield jazz festival…
