Soundwave review by Beatnik

Check out this awesome diary from Soundwave 2010 by Beatnik Online, featuring a nice little review of the MOF Band. Look out for more collaborations and footage to follow!

“Early in the afternoon, while most were swimming, catching up on some down time or on some drinking, Manchester collective Mind on Fire emerged from the DJ booth to the stage, tearing said place down despite the relatively sparse crowd. Sporting their band tees that many of the visitors started rocking over the next few days they started the party with raps and soulful vocals, wetting our appetites for the glories to come. These boys won new fans with each unique joint.”

Grave Architecture Mix

This month we have a mix from Grave Architecture for you. With a track featured on the forthcoming MOF vinyl compilation and more releases as one half of the duo Szare planned,  GA has been a busy boy. This 70 minute mix takes in “cosmic dubstep, cerebral techno and interplanetary ambient sounds” as he puts it.
