On this bruising 12″, the Adrian Sherwood & Pinch get down to business with two hallucinatory and suitably bowel-rupturing paeans to the green stuff.Continued »
LWE reached out to Jimpster to discuss how the new album came about, some of the most potent recent trends in dance music, and the depths of his A&R practices. He also delivered LWE’s 165th exclusive podcast, a wide-reaching and thoroughly entertaining summary of the sounds which have made Jimpster such an enduring presence.Continued »
LWE Podcast 164: The Black Dog
Little White Earbuds got in touch with the trio to talk about studio duties, trolling the RA forums and how an unfortunate airport incident left Ken with a lifelong disdain for aviation authority (but garnered us an album in the process). The guys were also kind enough to put together our 164th exclusive podcast – an hour of compelling techno that gathers some of their favorite tunes of the minute with cuts from new album, Tranklements.
LWE Podcast 163: Vakula
A long time fan of the producer, Little White Earbuds set out to conduct an in-depth interview with the artist born Mikhaylo Vityk, but with language differences getting in the way this proved to be a somewhat fruitless task. His sentiments however shone through via his preferred method of communication; ethereal, tripped out house is the order of the day from the Slavic master.
LWE Podcast 162: Recondite
Wanting to delve deeper into the world of Recondite, Little White Earbuds got in touch to talk about his studio, why he’s not likely to be remixing many other producers, and just where German cock-rockers Rammstein fit into his work. He put together a live set of his own productions for us that makes up our 162nd exclusive podcast. He suggests you listen to it in the back seat of a car, high on summer sun and natural combustibles, but we think its brilliance is likely to hit you no matter where you hear it.
LWE Podcast 161: K-HAND
LWE tracked down Hand to find out more about her career, her formative influences and what’s going on with Acacia Records. She also mixed our 161st exclusive podcast, which shows off her particular tastes and incredible skills on the decks.
LWE Podcast 160: Auntie Flo
Wanting to quiz the producer about his artist name, his penchant for African music and a whole lot else, LWE opened up the lines of communication. As well as filling us in on all of our queries, we were also rewarded with a stunning mix that spans continents, refuses to sit still, celebrates the 3rd birthday of the Highlife party and is also our 160th exclusive podcast.
LWE Interviews Steve Summers

LWE Interviews Outboxx
In advance of their performance at Echo Festival this weekend, LWE corresponded with Outboxx via email about their work methods, their influences, and their ever-changing live set.
LWE Interviews John Tejada
