Winter is officially over but the Spring equinox was all but an afterthought amid this week’s unrelentingly grey drizzle. Help pacify those soggy ambitions for a sun-filled summer with some new wax courtesy of Jaxon, James and Josh, three of our most opinionated scribblers. This month’s selections include dusted-down afrobeat classics, Japanese cosmic funk re-issues and some killer dancefloor-ready gospel […]

The study of musicology has undergone a serious revolution in recent years. Where once the discipline knew its own limits – it has now become an all-encompassing field that explores gender, sexuality, patronage and race. Within an ever-awakening postcolonial context, the scholarship behind the African diaspora and the study of musical form have never been […]

Upcoming as the second instalment in their brand new monthly Live Series, Constellations welcome soul-queen, Fatima and her Eglo Live Band for what will be the venue’s first garden party of the spring season.  Born in Sweden and now residing in the UK, Fatima’s career was first launched by Alexander Nut and Floating Points’ Eglo Records back in 2010. Having received […]

The orange megalomaniac has risen. All hail Donald of the tribe Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America.  Living proof that no amount of money can buy you class or integrity, it’s often hard to distinguish what part of Donald Trump instills the most fear. Treating his new-found premiership as an exercise […]

“It’s not just about getting young people into work; people who ask me that are missing the point. It’s about whether or not we can change someone’s mindset by providing them with a sense of belonging. That for me would be a success.” Speaking of his work at Manchester’s Reform Radio, co-director Sam Oliveira’s enthusiasm […]

February: the worst month of the year. It’s cold, summer seems a mile away and every film that comes out is Valentine’s Day themed.
