You’d never catch me taking drugs, oh dear me no, I don’t need drugs when I’ve got coffee and tea to perk me up, alcohol to loosen my inhibitions, nicotine to calm me, sleeping pills to help me sleep and paracetamol to take away the pain.

LOOP MAFFIA: Blue Cheese EP (2014)

Blue Cheese EP Loop MaffiaSo there I was looking for an angle on Loop Maffia‘s Blue Cheese EP and I googled ‘blue cheese’ for inspiration.

CRASHGROOVE: Apollo EP (2013)

Here’s Crashgroove everybody – latest signing to Bulabeats and not to be confused with seminal hip-hop movie Krush Groove. As if you’d make that mistake with this lot of noisy shenanigans. The Apollo EP contains three tracks – the relative merits of which can, I believe, be conveyed by three different types of Apollo.
