Black Midi and the Holy Grail - Loud And Quiet

We sent London's weirdest rock band to a Da Vinci-themed escape room for no good reason When I was told I was going to interview London experimental rock group -meets- Black Midi in an escape room in Shepherd's Bush, I'd be lying if I said that the Vice Partridge character of the prospect didn't occur to me.

Hudson Mohawke: "There's a tendency to over-intellectualise club music"

Oskar Jeff: How are you feeling about the new record? Hudson Mohawke: I feel pretty good. I feel a little trepidation, and I think that's healthy to be honest. HM: With that last project I was so burnt out doing live shows. I really wanted to make an album that was not club-focused at all.

Grove: Bristol's radical new voice in queer dancehall - Loud And Quiet

"These tunes are a statement of who I am, not necessarily reflective of everyone who's queer and Black" "It's never been a conscious thing. It's just needing to express whatever anger or resentment I've got piling up inside, and working out in what ways I can do that."

Sherelle is building a unique platform for Black, queer artists - Loud And Quiet

BEAUTIFUL's mission statement is unique, and the necessity of this kind of project becomes more clear by the day, but it isn't the first foray into running a label for Sherelle. Hooversound Recording s, a label co-run with fellow DJ Naina, is, while slightly more traditional in its structure, quietly radical in its own right.

DOOM: ALL CAPS WHEN YOU SPELL THE MAN NAME - Loud And Quiet

As the tragic passing of underground hip hop icon MF DOOM draws an endpoint on a prolific and creatively unparalleled career, the urge to make sense of his somewhat labyrinthine back catalogue grows stronger than ever.

Zuli - All Caps (UIQ0012) - Album Review - Loud And Quiet

All Caps is the return of Cairo-based producer ZULI to Lee Gamble's UIQ imprint. It's an impressively hell-bent set of experiments in dancefloor contortion, balanced with off-the-wall humour throughout. Opener 'Tany' immediately sets the pace with its blistering jungle breaks and haphazard filtering, evoking the anarchic breakbeat experiments of the influential German label Digital Hardcore.
