Zoo Brazil – The New Album – ‘Point Of View’

A point of view indeed. One musician’s of course, but that of an individual who’s proved – over many a year – to be as scene-enduring as he’s been artistically inspirational. Whilst Zoo Brazil may not make longplayers all that often, when he delivers,...

Mohamed Bahi – Hope For A Cure

Sigh… There’s no cure for January is there! Well, actually, no – that’s not quite correct. Here at VANDIT Towers, we might just have uncovered one. Last chance for Jan-blues-beating redemption is brought to you today courtesy of Mohamed Bahi, with his first single...


Gai Barone – Progressive Sessions – In The Mix 006

30 months on from Bonzai’s first (Airwave-helmed) ‘Progressive Sessions’, Belgium’s finest sure-footedly arrive at their sixth ‘In The Mix’.
