This is much more than your average run of the mill mashup.

Boycott Corporate Manipulative Bullshit (BCMB)

Flick through your television machine and you're pressented with an array of high budget, hackneyed colourful reality TV programmes. The X Factor is just one of these; all of these 'change your life forever shows' which manipulate vunerable people, be them poor, or young and insecure.

Perhaps the worst current contender is 'Grease: The School Musical' presenting us with 30 or so minors all given the chance to have 'a one in a lifetime opportunity' or some other soppy phrase. The poor children are put under so much pressure at such an early age and the result of this is broadcasted nationally.
'To go in to schools and have children perform (and crash) in front of TV cameras purely for entertainment is the lowest of the low.'

Going into schools invites a whole new cohort into a unhealthy obsession with fame.

So, I invite you to jon this in agreement to boycott this sort of television, not just for quality of viewing or whatever. And you have to fucking mean it as well. I'm just gonna skip the channel.

Robbie Spencer's 'Dark Romanticism'

The shockingly marvelous effects of taking vintage further than it was designed to go. WOW. Shot by CARLOTTA MANAIGO.

I love the Dark baroque feel to this shoot.


She dosen't want me to write about her... So just take my word for it

I'm Not Your Toy - La Roux

It's great to finally see Elly smile, 3:03 :)


Sometimes, the hair, the flair and the synths get in the way of Elly Jackson...

Not Fair (Far Too Loud Electro Radio Edit) - Lily Allen

Laurie Unwin + CD Spinz

Laurie Unwin , remember that name. While making ambient hip-hop sound way better than it's meant to be with his partner CD Spinz, they languish unsigned. What is this world coming too? His Demo track, Pirate distracts Drum n' Bass from the pantomime that is becoming (Thanks to the like of Pendulum) and offers a little more. 'Brain Freeze' is a highlight, starting off with a distant, misty feeling beep n' bass (Imagine Gorillaz smoking zoot with faithless), layering on CD's vocals and leading to grand crescendo of synths *I'm gonna fly away some day* and then fades back into the darkness.
'Raid' and a rework of Bonnie Tyler's 'Holding out for a hero' are the more fun of the records, utterly enjoyable.
