Pulsecode is the production alias of 19 year old Simon Kitt. Hailing from the South West this young producer is set to take the electronic music scene by storm. With a great combination of garage, techno and old school baselines this exciting new EP from the talented Pulsecode no doubt will transport you back to the Ibiza summers of the 90’s with a innovative contemporary edge.

The EP kicks off with On The Pulse, a two step garage tune that will no doubt be gracing your club nights. With huge build ups blasting through, leading to minimalistic bass lines with a twist of dubstep, On The Pulse really sets the standards for this elevating and gutsy EP. 

Heavy On The Hummus follows with a touch of house with swirling synths in quite a minimal style as it moves and flows into a jungle influence creating an interesting dynamic to the piece.

Track three, Here With Me channels some old school bass lines with a strong fusion of garage and techno forming a crowd worthy track with a hooky vocal showcase – extracting the voice and using it as an instrument within this heavily dance rooted track really pushes the boat out for an epic finish and intrepid EP from the talented young Pulsecode.

Pulsecode’s first EP will be available for digital purchase from the 3rd of December, being released through the cutting edge label, Disco’s Dead Records. Head over to www.discosdead.com to keep up to date with their mixes and releases featuring some of the South West’s freshest talent.

There’s nothing like music to relieve the soul and uplift it.

There’s nothing like music to relieve the soul and uplift it” Mickey Hart

After coming back to London we had a rather musically inclined few days. Firstly hitting up Cargo in Shoreditch on Wednesday to check out Deavious hosted by Not Another. It was good to get down there and finally see Deavious live, after seeing Deavious progress so much in the last few years and after the release of his highly anticipated album Tin Man Army (Buy here – http://deavious.bigcartel.com/product/tin-man-army) it was great to finally see him on stage and with such great presence and impeccable flow – he really had the crowd pumping and was loving being up there. Dropping some of his key tracks from his recent album, Tin Man Army accompanied with some new material he is currently working from his upcoming Yellow Bricks mix tape we are definitely looking forward to his new release and to seeing his face more in the circuit.

Thursday saw us head down to Idiosynphonic’s part two of their second birthday celebrations at Relay in London Bridge. Although I have been to Cable more times than I can count, their sister club Relay was a first for me and what a great club it is – originally the mysterious third room of Cable which I didn’t even know existed the sister club is a standalone space in its own right. Headliners of the night saw Zeds Dead (www.facebook.com/whoszed) come over from Canada playing an unmissable set for all electronic dance fans amalgamating aspects of electro house, hip hop and glitch genres into their largely dubstep platform. Following Zed’s Dead on Thursday, Koven smashed the evening with an admirable set with energetic sounds infused with grinding bass combinations which really set the club off. His set integrated some if his classic tunes like Wake You Up with some astounding new material he has been working on. You can keep up to date with any new releases of Koven’s on www.facebook.com/KOVENUK.

Anchorsong

After a month that has seen venues in London, Brighton and Edinburgh sell out with audiences keen to experience Anchorsong’s renowned live show, he is coming back to London as he plays in his biggest headline show to date at East London’s XOYO.
The first time we caught him playing was about a year ago at Koko in Camden supporting Bonobo. We were mesmerised by his live performance , an awe-inspiring showcase of electronic music infused with acoustic acts was truly an performance we couldn’t forget. With the use of samples and loops with the accompaniment of the acoustic acts this live electronic show really is a spectacle. The creative process lands itself handily to the live act, he has states that the concept of his performance is ‘ to show the process of making music itself… To prove that the love show of electronic music is just as exciting as one by a band”, Of which we at Something-About definitely agree with, if it’s anything like the last time we saw him you are really in for a treat.

Tickets start at £7.00 for super early birds.
