Woolfy Vs Projections
The Astral Projections of Starlight (Permanent Vacation)
Simon James is a Scotsman living in LA, who makes gorgeous horizontal grooves as Woolfy. Here, he has linked up with Dan Hastie, his partner in musical crime in the Projections outfit. The resulting album is a truly magical collection of organic beauties, where live percussion, heavenly guitars and angelic vocals feature heavily. Highs appear in the form of tracks such as mind transforming Writing On The Walls, cosmic synth laced This Space and the delicious string addled We Were There. This album is a testament to the beauty of music and its ability to touch the mind, body and soul.

More from Jon Freer:
The Source feat. Candi Staton – You Got The Love
This record, a commercial success and a club floor filler, was my first introduction to electronic music, back in the late 80s. At the time, I was very young, but the track struck an important chord with me and showed me the emotional power of music.
Jon Freer’s Autumn Selection (Part 1)
So much music we’ve had to split the feature! Part 1 includes: José Padilla, Prince Fatty, You Say Party! We Say Die!, Jazzanova, Karizma, Miguel Migs, Ananda Project, Waajeed, Eddy Meets Yannah, Tweek, The Broken Family Band, The Spirals, and various other artists…
Anthony Collins – Doubts & Shouts
Wholeheartedly rejecting the proposition that ‘machine music’ should be opposed all that is ‘live’ and ‘organic’, this long player delves into both worlds and emerges with a pulse racing opus.
Autumn Musical Gems
Stereotyp “Keepin’ Me”, “Mr. Scruff’s Big Chill Classics”, “The Big Chill 2006”, “Deep, Down & Discofied” and Kraak & Smaak’s “Boogie Angst”. All these longplayers are highly recommended and should be available in your local record store or favourite online music vending outlet shortly.
Mr. Scruff – Ninja Tuna
The Scruffy one’s Tuna is finally on the menu, a few years after waving his jazzy trousers around, keeping it incredibly surreal and getting dubby on his debut. There are only a few silly track titles on this album and Ninja Tuna features a host of major musical players.
Jon Freer’s City Guides – York
York sits at the converging point of two rivers, the Foss and the Ouse. These rivers stretch through the centre of the city and the riverbanks offer a lovely place for a respite after exploring the city.
Other recent features:
Sónar 2010 – Barcelona, Spain
The festival attracts a lot of outsiders, but the Mediterranean, Spanish and more specifically Catalan nature of the people makes the festival what it is. Catalan people are passionate and this passion is infectious. The atmosphere is electric in Barcelona as a city and heightened by music and intoxicants at Sónar.
Summer Party Naval Styles at Seven RestoLounge
Oysters, like wine are affected by terroir and these Miyagi’s flavor profiles ranged with one showing a cleaner, almost tropical profile and the other being more salty, marine driven. As I was devouring the seemingly endless plates put in front of us, I sipped on a glass of fine sauvignon blanc.
R4NT Radio March 2010
R4NT Radio March 2010 um wow it’s been far too long since the last edition edition, featuring: Hector Hernandez, The Infesticons, Blockhead, Gramatik, Emika, Thunderheist, Parov Stelar, Eddy Meets Yannah, Anti-Pop Consortium, The Slew, Lighterthief, Andreya Triana, Parasyte Woman, Mathon, Venetian Snares, and Funki Porcini.
O Restaurant & Lounge revisited
Calgary has a diverse set of urban communities, most of which have the ubiquitous strip mall watering hole. In the South West community of Marda Loop, a reinvention of this paradigm has been established.
Predictions 2010.. and beyond!
So 2010 eh? Almost but not quite (no year zero they say) another decade? It seems like just yesterday that the world was waiting for Y2K. R4NT started publishing in March 2001, so we’re not quite 10 years old yet, but in internet years we are already a senior citizen.
No matter what, the reality of Nelson Mandela is something that deserves screen time. Should this film even remotely intrigue the masses to take interest in this figure, the world would likely benefit greatly from it.
