TFM has moved on ...

I'd like to say a big thank you to all our readers over the past couple of years, but we are no longer running the Tech Funk Manifesto.

However, we'd like to invite you to our new blog 'United & Anarchic'. The themes will be similar, there will be plenty of quality music up for grabs, but the interface, writing and front end will, we hope, be of a much higher quality, and geared a little more to artists affiliated with our U&A Recordings imprint (although not exclusively). There will also be a regular 'Spotlight' section with in-depth interviews and exclusive mixes from some of our favourite artists.

Surf to .... UNITED & ANARCHIC

Thank you for listening

He is Damn Horns

It's clear that this man doesn't take himself too seriously (you need only look at his press shots!) but it's clear his music does. Damn Horns sprung to light for me via Mr No Hands Life Support Machine Blog. His mix below enbodies techfunk, electro, breaks & House gelled together with aplomb and the thing that also got me was his approach to showcasing some of the free workings flying around the web at the moment, which you have to take your hat off too, and shows the strength of the work that's being given away, crazy people!

Damn Horns - Freakout Mix 2011 by damnhorns

Commanding early support and radio play from the likes of Ali B, Bassbin Twins, Nick Thayer, Far Too Loud and Peo De Pitte it would seem Damn Horns got a lot to offer in a very short amount of time. I think what brought him to light so quickly was the unrelenting sharpness of his productions, which notably shows up in his extremely cheeky track, wobble over Wanda and it works!!

His other recent works on Rocstar Recordings typify where he's going, bass-heavy, wobble-fests, with more glitch than a bust TV set! It's safe to say watch out for those DAMN HORNS!!

Shockland [with bonus free 320]

The Shockland album from Elite Force has been in the pipeline for some time now, and this week it finally sees the light of day amidst a blaze of publicity, including El Forza's first DJ Magazine cover. Bless.

The tracks contained within were written for the awesome game Motorstorm Apocalypse for the PS3 (which was released a couple of months back to great acclaim) in collaboration with Oscar-winning classical / soundtrack composer Klaus Badelt, whose work you will be familiar with if you've watched Pirates of The Caribbean or Gladiator or any of the other Hollywood blockbusters he's been involved with.


The music speaks for itself - dark, brooding soundtracky works that will be as at home on your earpod as in the club. Tracks like 'Loco' and 'Spazm' are clearly peaktime performers that have been smashing the harder clubfloors for a few months now, but the more experimental, intricate downbeat works such as 'Neurofunk' and 'The Horror ...' are proper, tripped out afterhours sounds for the twisted generation.
