  1. slightly off topic, but i'm quite excited about the bleep store.. who knows what we could be getting down the line.. repressed vinyl, vinyl exclusives, digi exclusives, unreleased tracks, live sets, live vids, merchandise..

  3. “Be Up A Hello is a phrase that was used in my circle of friends when we were teenagers growing up in Essex but in particular it reminds me of a very good friend called Chris Marshall, who very sadly died of natural causes last year. He was only 44. I was devastated. I loved him to bits. He was only a year older than me but was like a father-figure in some ways. He made sure we were all safe when we were running around Chelmsford like little maniacs. Chris was very technically minded and we both went on a journey when we were kids, learning about synthesis, about how sound is mixed, about how samplers work… So with this album I tried to go back to the ways of making music that we’d investigated as kids. I went back to the analogue equipment.” Ultimately Tom hopes Be Up A Hello stands up as new music which also pays tribute to a good mate who had to leave the party early. He concludes: “When we were 16, Chris and I used to listen to a lot of music driving about in his Dad’s Ford Escort. Before I started releasing records, this was the first outlet I ever had for my music, the first time I ever observed the effect my tracks would have on other people. Just outside Chelmsford there was this old disused and derelict barn you could just drive right into. We’d park the car up, open the car doors, crank the stereo up full and that was our club. And it was perfect.”

  8. “I have composed very few pieces of music as short as ten seconds before, and given the very low bandwidth available, I was obliged to carefully consider what kind of musical materials would produce a satisfying result under these constrained conditions. Simplicity seemed a wise policy, so I decided to use just one instrument, and make sure the majority of the frequency spectrum was below the Nyquist frequency, which is the limit of what can be represented at a specific sample rate -in this case 3200 Hz. The electric bass seemed a good choice, and again keeping simplicity in mind, I chose a primarily melodic route with very little polyphony that I was afraid would get lost in the lack of bandwidth. Beyond the harmonic framework, the piece audibly contains sonic evidence of human touch, which I felt was a good thing to send towards the stars.“ https://www.sonarcalling.com/en/artists/squarepusher/?url=/en/

    CBeebies has launched an online video to help kids wind down, which shows children walking through a forest, playing with bubbles and splashing in puddles. However there is some debate over whether screen time is the best way of getting kids to relax. The ‘slow TV’ show is called ‘Daydreams’ and encourages kids to “take the time to notice the beauty in the world” by watching the earth’s elements: water, wind and light. It combines long, slow montages of calming images, with a narration by Olivia Colman and music by dance artist Tom Jenkinson.
