Magazine Sixty: music reviews and views on from leading DJ, writer and producer, Greg Fenton.

  • Contrast always feels like the best of intentions. Especially given so many things are almost exactly the same. The same arrangements of landscapes of endless familiarity for you to lose your sad reflections in. Or the same sounds inevitably sounding all the same. However, Kirk Barley turns it all upside down in due course by…

  • It’s also the ability of music to lift and transform mood which is yet another fascinating, invaluable asset in the artistic canon. Maybe it should be prescribed. That’s the thing I love about this album’s opening shot, Mondays’ Generation as it sings and dances, celebrating, confirming. Then you listen to the piano adorning HHOT and…

  • If you’re are looking for direction but find it difficult to ask try the exquisite notes peppering To Where Dreams Are, created via the fall in love landscapes of surrounding sound by Nourey.

  • Beginning at the point that this music generates a more personal conversation between artist and listener might be a good place to start our dialogue. The wealth of music currently being generated, which talks more about atmosphere and mood is almost overwhelming but I guess it is in some way now a true reflection of…

  • Is there really an infinite way of receiving these blends of sounds? Of listening to unfolding combinations of drones and sonic treatments pitched somewhere between ethereal, poignant and a reflective rippling across streams of consciousness. I don’t really know the answer to that but I still like experiencing the process. I guess from the album’s…

  • I first came across Session Victim – Mattias Reiling & Hauke Freer – with their ‘See You When You Get There’ album on Delusions of Grandeur back in 2014. It knocked me out. Since then, I have continued to watch their understated cool evolve. Their newest offering comes via London’s Night Time Stories and is…
