MEZKO are just getting started, so if you’re not already
onboard, it’s time to jump on the back of the
motorbike – you’re in for a wild ride.

Have You Been There,
Have You Seen It

Already one of the most revered DJs doing the rounds at the moemnt, this EP sees her skill and unique selection propel even further into electronic folklore
Hauff has retained enough of her modus operandi that
long-time fans will be satiated; newcomers may
go away thirsting for more.

Baxter Dury
Prince Of Tears

Baxter Dury has today released his new album Prince Of Tears. Intensely personal, yet brutally open, this is Baxter’s fifth album and his most ambitious and biggest work to date. Whilst retaining the natty charm of his previous works, like his debut Len Parrot’s Memorial Lift, Baxter this time worked with a full band and orchestra to truly bring the soundscapes of his emotional netherworld to life.
Ian Dury’s son has finally found his own key.
The result is a revelation.
