TWO ALT-INDIE ROCK ANTHEMS IN THE WAITING - "NO GLASS FALLS" & "HOWLING" - WAVs & MP3's
- Freakin idiot I am, I've been sitting on these two songs after a huge transAtlantic return then tonight they have just EXPLODED in my head - I know what I like in Rock music old or new, was into The War On Drugs with their Lost In The Dream album, now Grammy known. These two Djuno recordings are as tightly-spun as the world is now socially, full of tension, melancholy, fearfully hopeful it can move past 2020 without its vision impaired for the future by raging old lunatics. "Hold me hold me" she implores on "No Glass Falls" as the guitars lick-up a storm of distorted melodies. "Your howling for someone to hold you", yes internally those born circa 2000 are "Howling" inside - the planet's "Howling" from the oceans to the Amazon. Put your headphones on and inject into a maelstrom of magic. Djuno from Southampton, a year into their journey, are like U2 and Nirvana at their early best, hungry and full of unbridled axis splitting energy.

ALTERNATIVE TECHNO - TECH HOUSE - Whisky Boys and Rock n Roll, written by Paul Deighton thunders through with old school electro flavours, genre defining breaks and beats and one hell of a dirty synth line. The exploding chorus line and quirky vocals are delivered by Sara Petterson. The remix hits the modern Tech House genre as iKOST, from Georgia, goes deeper and groovier with his unique imprint.

The pursuit of new requires inventiveness. As a DJ playing funk, soul, house & hip hop I often couldn't feature Prince's new releases in my sets because of the differing rhythm structure and electric guitars he used but look how that body of work has long outlasted most of the other music I could play. That's how new paths are laid for the next generation. Artists being brave enough to record what beats from their heart. The Lincoln Experience - Corinthian on MOEC Records
is one such example. It won't feature on a lot of your sets but to some it be essential and that's the reason for explaining this campaign as so, to find its friends.
