White Ink Lyrics

Shine A Light You caught my heart on your sleeve Now baby don’t deceive me in your stride Don’t walk away when you’re blinded Who’ll leave the light on if you fall Don’t act like a plain Jane When you can shine like a web in the rain Don’t drive like a James Dean When...

Prince – Original Live Recording of Purple Rain (First Avenue 1983)

Everyone knows this song backwards, right? But imagine yourself back in 1983, August 3 to be precise.

Tummy Touch Records 15th Anniversary mixtape

Here’s a special mix that we’ve finally finished just in time to catch the end of Tummy Touch records 15th anniversary year. This was a pretty epic undertaking for us, we started with well over 8 hours of music (and that was after we cherry picked) which we managed to edit down to the 80...
Casio MT-40 S-CAT build

Casio MT-40 S-CAT build

A few weeks ago we came across this video of an exquisitely built circuit bent Casio MT-40 synth (via J Saul Kane of DC Recordings) which comes with a total of 26 modifications. Now, the MT-40 (and it’s grey MT-41 successor) is a classic in its own right, mainly for single-handedly inventing the massively popular Sleng...

The Chap – We Are The Best (Watch/Listen)
