Fabrice Muamba’s cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane this year highlighted the dangerous nature of any top level sport. Thankfully, the Bolton midfielder survived the dramatic events of March 17th but throughout football’s past there have been many who have not been so lucky. In this list we take a look at those who lost […]

Chromeo – When The Night Falls

Today’s track is the first to concentrate on the serious business of Canadian electrofunk. Chromeo are a delicious duo who have probably been shifting boxes of old clothes and consoles into your subconscious for the last few years via FIFA soundtracks and V05 adverts, but it’s time to embrace the invasion.

Following up on yesterdays track ‘Hardly Hear You’ by Sydney-based five-piece Louis London, lead singer Ed Saloman was good enough to take time out of his busy schedule to talk to Slumped In A Corner about ambitions, inspirations and the Triple J Unearthed revolution. Hi Ed, congratulations on the recent release of your EP ‘On […]

Jana & JS – Take a Second Look.

There is a difference between walking the streets of London with open eyes and walking the streets of London with an open mind and with the public perception of graffiti and street art gradually changing, it’s time for you to fall into the latter category. Jana and JS are a couple whose stencil work graces […]

Joey Bada$$ – World Domination

Having featured on Mac Miller’s ‘America’, Joey Badass is not a complete unknown in regards to the American hip-hop scene and thankfully for us his tight cameo on a track, that has received over two million Youtube views, has forced his solo work to the surface. 2012 saw the release of two Badass mixtapes (that […]

Album Review – Little Comets – Life Is Elsewhere

Soulful, painful and melodic, Little Comets new album ‘Life is Elsewhere’ confirms the relevance of  the hauntingly brilliant indie-pop band. Last week I found myself up in the rafters of Camden’s Koko club grinding and body-popping to the honest lullabies of Robert Coles et al as they showcased the array of quality featured on their […]
