There’s several ways to stay abreast of what we’re up to at Pen HQ. Firstly, if you’re a fellow Tumblr blogger, you can link your site to The Pen by clicking the ‘Follow’ button in the top right hand corner of this page or alternatively, every post published feeds a notification through to our Twitter page. If it’s the music you’re more interested in, you can follow us via our Hype Machine account or we have a Soundcloud page where we collect, upload and occasionally offer our favourite tracks. By clicking the Facebook ‘Like’ button above, you effectively subscribe to our Friday lunchtime newsletter, which comes in the form of a brief status update outlining what’s been covered over the course of the week. The update just scrolls down your feed and doesn’t alert you like a message or notification would.
Anyway, here’s a slab of rude ass turbo bruk-step from the Rotterdam-based producer C.O.N.E that’s been getting airplay on RINSE FM, a preview of Darling Farah's decent 'Body' album due for release on the 25th of June via Civil Music, our pick of the tracks on Shed's forthcoming 3rd album 'The Killer' and Idjut Boys' 'Cellar Door' LP on Smalltown SuperSound. Daisy Ashford
NB: You can read James’ review of Idjut Boy’s Cellar Door in the August issue of Mixmag.
