Barricade Newsletter - FEB - 2018
A hello from the boss:
Hello Barricaders. Our head honcho Dellamorte is snowed under with work and has asked me to write this month's greetings.
January often feels like the longest and poorest month of the year. We're delighted that it's finished and now the debauchery begins again. We welcome February with open arms, as we look towards the Spring, and, dare we say it, Summer?
February also brings carnival season to so many parts of the world, a time of unbridled joy and passion. It's a tad better than our pancake day celebrations.
We're manning the barricades to bring you the finest in new alternative dance and indie tunes, and my fellow DJs have unearthed plenty of gems for our tunes of the month. There's springtime Indie, dirty DnB, funky UK Rap and lush NuDisco
Peace, Love, Unity and Respect,
*The schedule is liable to change at the last minute, please check Facebook/Twitter posts on the day for confirmation the show is running.

Tunes/Albums OF December:
Kings of the Rollers - Burnt Ends
Fresh DnB from Hospital records, this is Kings of the Rollers first solo output, and it's causing carnage on the dancefloor!
My album of the month is the new album from Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon - Let's talk, which is available here: https://drsyntax.bandcamp.com/album/lets-
I'm hoping to take the Funky Sensation night I do with Dellamorte & Denzileo to more venues around the country...we bring the funk to your party! Get in touch if you want us to play at a venue near you!
Pale Lights - Jean, Bring the Flowers
The New York band have the perfect Spring anthem of bringing blooming flowers, sunlight and smiles into our dark lives.
I almost don't want to share this as it's so good, but the album Moog Edits by Arşivplak is a jaw-dropping collection of re-edits of hyper-obscure psychedlic Turkish disco records, and it's every bit as good as that sounds. Special mention goes out to Ayva Çiçek Açmış
I've been revisiting all things Detroit recently and stumbled across the squelchy classic that is The Box by K-Hand. It's been on repeat ever since.

Heavy hitter Current Value returns with his 11th album, Deadly Force. Scenario's from the heavier Neurofunk end of the DnB spectrum, with a nod to dubstep, it's a beast of a track.
