Do you like underground music? If you’re in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on Friday the 28th of February 2014, you’re in for a treat. Phnom Penh’s best underground DJs serve up slabs of heavy bass to get your body and soul shaking.
The lineup includes DJ Polaak aka TakTikTeknikz – who is well versed at mixing Drum and Bass. Our very own Warren Daly will be mixing bass influenced genres including a few wedges of Dubstep. Chris Bradbury a.k.a CAB is likely to take the dancefloor by storm (as usual) with his high energy mixing and FX. The Phatt Controller will keep us all entertained with his innovated mixes of funk, breakbeat and drum and bass.
Hope to see you there.
Yes it’s been several years since our previous vinyl release. Remember we released Chymera, Decal, 2BiT, Ikeaboy and others on 12″…. But we’re back on plastic, it’s time for some unique 7″ lathe cuts, handmade covers, limited editions featuring Todd Elliott a.k.a Toaster
After a number of drone releases and more conceptual records, Brethren was born out of a number of jams with Daniel Couri, who plays bass for the stoner rock outfit One Eyed King.
On the tracks he doesn’t play on, I tried to keep that spirit alive; playing whatever came to mind, recording everything, and keeping the good stuff. I had a lot of fun making this record, and I hope you can hear some of that in the music – Todd Elliott
A 7″ single of the song ‘Dracula Clock’ backed with an exclusive to vinyl track ‘Overdawned’. Each lathe cut comes in a hand painted unique cover by Dina Chhan. You will also get a complete download of the album “Brethren” with your purchase of the 7″. Buy the vinyl now

The quiet half of the sky
Faces hidden in the working crowd, veiled by the duties of the seamstress, the labours of the rice field and the market, the endless tread of the city street. Through a range of styles, painter Dina Chhan explores the surface reality of the daily work of Cambodian women, and draws up unexpressed dreams and aspirations from the souls of these mothers, sisters and daughters.
Using her familiar vivid palette of colours, Dina hovers between a lithe, almost cinematic realism and an exuberant abstraction. She places people in noisy, bustling environments where you can hear the wind blowing, the calls and shouts, the traffic passing, or the night falling. All the while, the quiet dignity of the subjects creates a stillness of that captured moment. These nine strong pieces remind us of the people that we see, that we know, and that we are.
