Latitude 2014: the DiS review
Jul 25, 2014 6:09am | Drowned In Sound

Its funny growing up with a festival - you dont really notice the changes until suddenly you really notice the changes. My dim memories of Latitudes early days are of a twee, jolly, wholesome affair, where teenagers were a myth, electronic music was just a rumour, the hours of darkness were for sleeping, and non-knitters were in the minority.

Seven years on, and be-facepainted teenagers are everywhere, there are multiple stages and bars open until 3am on which electronic dance acts play their repetitive beated troth, and not one but two young men tried to sell us drugs in the iArena on Saturday night.

And yet its the same old Latitude if you want it, theres just more bits - Pappys are still getting drunk on Friday night in the Literary arena, Josie Long is still leading wholesome calls to arms in the Comedy stage, there's ballet on the Waterfront stage, whimsical live art curators Forest Fringe are still doing their whimsical thing in the Faraway Forest, the sheep are still dyed exiting pastel shades heck, Mogwai are still headlining (admittedly, only on the second stage this time, but I wouldnt be surprised if they drew a physically larger crowd than their 2006 Sunday headline slot - they are fucking ace, though my state of mind at the time probably precludes deeper analysis).

What this all does mean, gentle Drowned in Sound reader, is that I didnt really see all thaaaaat many bands, but you know, rather than blather...


Devon record shop on eBay for just £9000
Jul 25, 2014 6:07am | Fact Magazine

A record shop in Devon has been placed in the bargain bin.

Just months after the auction of Soho institution On The Beat, Records CDs UK in Crediton is being sold on eBay for just £8,999, with “thousands upon thousands” of new and used vinyl records and CDs included.

The lease on the shop ends in October, with owner Dan Ford having no plans of renewing it. In the eBay listing he writes: “I have built the business up for the last 7 years, and can also give out supplier contact details. This is a great opportunity to start up your own record shop.” Ford says he’s selling off his business, which started online seven years ago and became a bricks and mortar shop last September, to focus on a new venture.

The buyer will receive over 20,000 items, including new and used singles, albums and box sets as well as merchandise like badges, posters, mugs and T-shirts. “This is a ready made business for someone to start,” adds Ford.

With vinyl sales at their highest for a decade, it seems like now’s the time to get in on the action in the past month or so we’ve heard about Rye Wax and YAM Records opening in Peckham, Love Vinyl starting up in Hoxton, a new shop in Edinburgh helmed by the boss of Firecracker Records and plans by ind...

Jackmaster interviews Slimzee
Jul 25, 2014 5:18am | Fact Magazine

Ahead of their appearance at London’s XOYO this Saturday, Jackmaster interviews legendary grime DJ Slimzee for FACT TV.

From the start of July through to the end of September, Jackmaster will hold down a residency at XOYO, playing every Saturday with a variety of guests that includes Joy Orbison, Moodymann and Kenny Dope. This Saturday, he shares the stage with two titans of grime and dubstep, Slimzee and Loefah.

A member of Pay As U Go Cartel and a key part of Rinse FM from the start, Slimzee was the grime DJ. He’d spin for the two best MCs – Dizzee Rascal and Wiley – and if a rival DJ had a special VIP dubplate, Slimzee already had the VIP of the VIP. After spending some time only DJing sporadically, Slimzee has returned in a big way this year, hosting an NTS show that he’s opened up to the likes of Slackk, Novelist, Skepta, Jammer and Mumdance.

Artists are often better than journalists at getting stories out of fellow artists, and in this interview Slimzee speaks candidly about his much-mythologised ASBO, how he started up DJing, the origins of his most infamous dubplate and more.
