It's been a while since we last invited someone into the hot seat to review the best in new music. This time we are joined by none other than Carl Finlow, an unsung hero amidst dance music royalty who has been praised and championed by the likes of Andrew Weatherall and Maceo Plex. Since the early 90's he has been a key figure within British dance and electronic music for many years and has appeared on revered labels such as Warp and Klang amidst many others. This month marked the release of a new album by the influential tastemaker under his own name - "Introspective" is out now on 20/20 Vision.
In keeping with this release we felt it was perhaps time for him to offer up his own commentary of electronic music in the present as he offers some insight to the sounds of the moment...
