    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Surmillo

    Greg Fenton reviews  Surmillo – Red Hot EP – Loerty Surmillo’s enticing release for Loerty seems like two halves of the same whole with a sense of ambiguity coursing throughout its tantalising grooves. First is the sleazy temptation of Red Hot driven by heavy-duty drums and bass, electro flairs signaling ignition, and a voice talking…

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Afterlife

    Afterlife – I Saw You Dancing On Mars – Subatomic UK If there was any doubt in your mind that machines could communicate then here we are. Furthermore, they talk in such an emotionally rich language that perhaps it could be a preferred option of engagement compared to what you hear being said via the…

  • Magazine Sixty Music Review with MINING

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with MINING

    Greg Fenton reviews MINING – Chimet – The Leaf Label The disorientating waves of sound overlap the senses as Ophelia sets sail and contains spine-tingling notes of heavenly discourse. Resplendent with colours flying and rolling hot intensity fuelling its fire. Brutal in the sense that it means something, wondrous in that it probes and questions…

  • Magazine Sixty Music Review with D + D – Diego Ro-K and Diego Cid

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with D + D – Diego Ro-K and Diego Cid

    Greg Fenton reviews D + D – Diego Ro-K and Diego Cid – Deal EP – MFF (Music For Freaks) An excellent production from the pair that ticks all of the boxes for me in terms of hot rhythm, forward-thinking musical flair, and the sort of tempting atmosphere that so succinctly works its way inside…

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Maya Shenfeld

    Greg Fenton reviews Maya Shenfeld – Under the Sun – Thrill Jockey Records Time is of the essence. Or at least it certainly feels that way. Under the Sun embraces you with arms of comfort and yet ploughs dark undercurrents at risk of pulling you under. As demonstrated in the album opening A guide for…

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Black Bones

    Greg Fenton reviews Black Bones – Mystic Arts 002 – Mystic Arts Is dance music in reverse? You can’t help but get that feeling with increasing regularity, although when something is as powerful as Find The Frequency let’s sidestep the suggestion for a while. Playing as the follow-up to the label’s brilliant debut from Calibre…

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Melchior Productions Ltd – The Thomas Stieler Edits -MY KING IS LIGHT

    Greg Fenton review Melchior Productions Ltd – The Thomas Stieler Edits – MY KING IS LIGHT This series of edits by Thomas Stieler are driven by a force of nature. Opening with the Spiritual Ways Edit of In The Spirit the primacy of the pounding drums is the thing commanding the landscape at first, then…

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Joram Feitsma

    Greg Fenton reviews Joram Feitsma – Binne All of the words you think of to describe the experience of music come crashing into your head when listening to this new album by Joram Feitsma. Continuing the theme of meaningful discourse sounds and atmospheres are delved into with typical depth across each of the pieces. Often…

  • Magazine Sixty Music Review with Echoes Of Spain – From Segovia and Sabicas to Miles Davis and John Coltrane – él Records

    Magazine Sixty Music Review with Echoes Of Spain – From Segovia and Sabicas to Miles Davis and John Coltrane – él Records

    Greg Fenton reviews Echoes Of Spain I love this rich series of albums that Cherry Red and friends do so well. In part because of the wealth of music I get introduced to through the experience, especially when it comes to vintage music I’m not always familiar with. But also because it lets my mind…
