So I've recorded and uploaded a new DJ mix called 'Shade and Form' that features some current favourites - old and new - in the deep/tech/minimal vein. You can stream it via Mixcloud or stream and/or download it from Soundcloud. I even managed to shoehorn one of my own tracks in there as well... but don't let that put you off.

Black Swan

WARNING: spoilers ahead

There's a certain kind of authenticity that characterises the films of Darren Aronofsky. Regardless of the style or subject matter, his narrative worlds feel lived in and truthful, and this trend continues in Black Swan. Even if it might not be an entirely accurate depiction of the ballet world, Aronofsky manages to...

I first encountered Kazu Kibuishi when I came across Flight Vol. 3 at my local library. The cover alone was enough to intrigue me, but the collection of stories Kibuishi, as editor, brought tog...

Tron: Legacy

Ok, so it's not as sophisticated or gritty as Neuromancer, but Tron: Legacy has all the trappings of classic cyberpunk, that still-virulent science fiction subgenre concerned with the plight of the tech-savvy individual living in a highly computerised society. And what could be more computerised that the...

The Last Airbender

I had such high hopes for this film, being a huge fan of the original cartoon series. Sad to report, it's about as bad as all the reviews are saying. Almost all it's problems come down to one thing though - it's so damn short! And you know it's undergone a heavy edit because there's set pieces from t...

Ip Man 2

Tonight, it seemed everyone in Perth was clamouring to catch the latest big-budget sequel, Iron Man 2. However, another, more low-key sequel was surreptitiously packing out my local cinema. Ip Man 2 is the sequel to the 2008 film of the same name, continuing the story of Bruce Lee's ...
