“Hello. I’m pleased to announce the first official Utopia podcast is now ready for download on Soundcloud. I wanted to please the loyal fans by sharing some exclusives, but also wanted to showcase a few things off the back catalogue for those tuning into the sounds of Utopia Music for the first time. I hope you enjoy.” – Stephen Mako.
“A hero in his home nation, Ametsub often finds himself sitting alongside Sigur Ros, My Bloody Valentine, and even The Beach Boys on Japanese record shelves. Since his first album in 2006, Akihito has become some-what of a national prodigy for electronic music and given his well-earned national respect, it’s unsurprising to see his latest album ‘All Is Silence‘ infiltrating the ‘recommended’ charts in many a Japanese record store. It’s been three years since his last, and ‘All Is Silence’ was well worth the wait.”
“After only a few years in the scene, Anile has made a serious impact on Drum and Bass. With releases on Renegade Hardware, Broken Audio, Cylon and Hospital Records’ experimental offshoot label, Med School, Anile has been making a name for himself, producing everything from deep, minimal musicality to dark, tech-y moodiness. His varied styles are translated into exciting and experimental sets and we are looking forward to welcoming him to Med School in Room Three at Hospitality Bristol on Friday 6th October. This mix should give you an idea of what we can expect from Anile‘s set in October. Enjoy.”
In recent months we’ve seen a spate of assertions that peak oil is a worry of the past thanks to so-called “new technologies” that can tap massive amounts of previously inaccessible stores of “unconventional” oil. “Don’t worry, drive on,” we’re told.
We can fall for the oil industry hype and keep ourselves chained to a resource that’s depleting and comes with ever increasing economic and environmental costs, or we can recognize that the days of cheap and abundant oil (not to mention coal and natural gas) are over.
