  • Dif Juz: Time Clock Turn Back

    Joel Hanson, July 23rd 2017

    In a YouTube video entitled Finding Dif Juz, Bella Union co-founder and ex-Cocteau Twins bassist Simon Raymonde unearths two rare 12-inch singles by the early 80’s instrumental group Dif Juz and claims that the origins of post-rock are found in the grooves of these low-fi recordings.

        Wesley Mayhem, June 6th 2017

              Dave Wesley, March 30th 2017

              I discovered this amazing track during a Soma Drone Zone infused meditation session, this morning.  It is was compelling enough to break through my theta trance that I interrupted the meditation to check the track that was streaming.   Born Yesterday is the perfect combination of organic and electronic drone.  It sounds great detuned to […]
