Streams of N.W.A’s ‘Fuck Tha Police’ surged by 272% amid the George Floyd protests in recent days. Across last Sunday (31st May), and Monday (1st June) this week, Alpha Data, who provide information for the Rolling Stone charts, revealed that the song had 765,000 on demand audio streams in the 48-hour period. Originally released in 1988, ‘Fuck Tha Police’ lyrically protests police brutality and racial profiling, and provoked the FBI to write to N.W.A’s record company claiming misrepresentation of the police. The protests have been taking place across the globe following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man from Minnesota who was killed by a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, on Monday 25th May. Footage of the arrest shows Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes, ignoring him as he repeatedly pleads, “I can’t breathe”. The music industry and fans are among the hundreds to have donated to organisations and funds in aid of protesters in Minneapolis and black community initiatives following the killing of George Floyd.
Warner (WMG) has announced a RP 100 million fund to support social justice and campaign against racism.

Detroit Swindle follow up last year’s soulful highlight ‘The life behind things’ with some impeccable disco-funk on steroids featuring 2 originals, a dub mix and a stunning extended remix by Norwegian disco don Prins Thomas. For Coffee in the morning, Detroit Swindle team up with India-via-London-to-NYC vocalist Jitwam, whose recent album Honeycomb on Tartelet and his live collaboration with Kamaal Williams have shown the world just how talented he really is. Coffee in the morning is more than anything a funk fueled disco bomb and that sits fine with us as you can never have enough disco in your life. DRW 10/10.

For Osunlade “‘Basic Sketches For Beginners’ is a simple thought of a variety of dance floor vibes. It’s more a poke at the current state of the dance music craze and those who are part of it. Not a diss, but more so a thing of understanding where this all comes from. While the business is greater than ever, the music sucks as a whole and those who benefit rarely are musicians or producers, but kids who learned the skill of DJ’n and social media hype, whereas their music suffers (if u can even call it that).” So while you spend countless hours looking for some new listening let us serve a huge shortcut for you as this is quality and has Bali new normal written all over it as we start to see the sunshine slowly again.

Banksy has posted a new piece of artwork to his Instagram that supports the Black Lives Matter movement. It depicts an American flag hanging on a wall catching fire from a candle commemorating the loss of a life. The candle sits next to bunches of flowers and a photograph. Alongside the artwork, Bansky also posted a text saying, ‘at first I thought I should just shut up and listen to black people about this issue. But why would I do that? It’s not their problem. It’s mine. ‘People of colour are being failed by the system. The white system. Like a broken pipe flooding the apartment of the people living downstairs. This faulty system is making their life a misery, but it’s not their job to fix it. They can’t - no one will let them in the apartment upstairs.
Disclosure are an English electronic music duo, consisting of brothers Guy (born 25 May 1991) and Howard (born 11 May 1994) Lawrence. The siblings grew up in Reigate, Surrey and currently live in London. Their debut and sophomore no.1 albums ‘Settle’ & ‘Caracal’ were both released through PMR records. The duo are currently touring all over the world. Disclosure will release their third album ‘ENERGY’ on 28th August. It marks the Lawrence brothers’ first new album in five years, following 2015’s ‘Caracal’, and comprises 11 tracks featuring a wide array of collaborators. Guest appearances on the album come from the likes of Common, Kelis, Kehlani & Syd, slowthai, Channel Tres and Fatoumata Diawara, who also appeared in the duo’s 2018 single, ‘Ultimatum’. The album’s first single and title track features the voice of Eric Thomas.
Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta to affluent parents in Manhattan, the star-in-the making showed her potential early on – learning to play the piano at the tender age of four, and performing at open mic nights by 14. “I was always an entertainer,” she acknowledges. Well folks, it’s here: Lady Gaga’s highly anticipated sixth studio album Chromatica has finally been released. It had a pretty stilted run up — the first single leaked online, and then the entire album’s release was delayed due to the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic. But we were also served some stunning singles, with ‘Stupid Love’ and ‘Rain On Me’ quickly asserting themselves as some of the year’s best tracks. At 16 tracks long, there’s a lot to unpack in Chromatica — even if the run time is only just under 44 minutes. So let’s get our paws up, and dive in.
Releases on his more hard-edged Mouseville Records under the pseudonym Cirez D have been tough and powerful a throw back to the underground techno roots his native Sweden has become so famous for. The huge demand for this label has been nothing short of amazing with his massive ‘Knockout EP’ selling over 18,000 copies on vinyl alone. The more melodic based Pryda imprint showcases his early house influences with harmonies, melodies and hooks fused with his trademark powerful basslines. Pryda & Mouseville are solely for Eric’s own productions, vehicles to develop his sound a sound that has become so influential, constantly imitated and copied but yet to be bettered. Eric Prydz has dropped two brand new tracks under his Cirez D alias. Having teased the tracks earlier this month, the Swedish titan has now released ‘Valborg’ and ‘The Raid’ via his own Mouseville Records, under his techno-focussed moniker. 


Somewhere within the walls of Studio Eksotika lies a gallery that houses one of the most extraordinary collections of dance music memorabilia in the world. But just days before Desa Potato Head was to open the doors to its newly acquired Wild Life Archive, disaster struck — the fury of COVID-19 led to the closure of Desa Potato Head (along with almost everything else in Bali…and the world). Always ones to innovate, a full-on digital strategy ensued featuring sustainable lifestyle hacks, in-house recipes (like their Flores Margarita) and Daily Morning Rituals. Best of all, they also brought the exhibition online.



YouTube announced a new “chapters” feature for its platform that allows users to easily navigate sections of a longer video. Following a positive testing period for the feature, YouTube has stated it will apply “chapters” permanently this week. The new feature is available on desktop as well as on the Android and Apple iOS YouTube apps. Viewers will be available to use the duration bar to click through various sections of a video, which is more convenient than scrubbing throughout a video to find particular moments. Chapters are visible at the bottom of the video player and show timestamps from the video description. However, chapters are optional.
