Occasionally a head would pop out of the sun roof to bask in the breeze, followed by a lit cigarette butt darting out of the open window.

Back at it again, Bristol's Banoffee Pies Records share the 13th release in their original series, this time in the form of a V/A called Common Ground. Bringing together four artists, including Interplanetary Criminal, Sourpuss, Hartta and our pick from one of Space Cadets, Lisene, the release is comprises on a batch of 150bpm+ cuts that tip the hat to their formative inspirations and early musical journeys.
