All The Bleeps Techno Vinyl Box Set // World News Black Cat
Today has arrived and marks the release of the All The Bleeps 4xLP techno box set. We're even more excited now than we were when we found out that World News' Black Cat had been selected to close the compilation. Other worldly indeed.
The box set marks the 500th episode of Bleep Radio, or Bleep 500, which is the brain child of Trevor Wilkes (AKA Fun in the Murky). Kudos to Trevor for supporting the thriving local scenes here with such verve and passion to make it to 500 shows. Our hats are well and truly dipped to you, great sir.
So what about this ruddy box set then?! Well it features tracks from techno wizards such as Sane, Jerome Hill, Neil Landstrum, Joe Farr and many more. To have Black Cat find a home amongst this crowd of names is, to put it lightly, fucking awesome.
But what can you expect when you drop your trusty record player needle? Let's just say you had better be wearing your dancing shoes — and make sure you bring a spare pair of insoles — because when the beat drops it's relentless. Listen on SoundCloud.
~ AN INFERNO OF TECHNO ~
Perhaps this is where World News belonged from the off? Perhaps this is a sign of things to come? Perhaps I should calm down and have a good cup of tea? Everyone should calm down with a good cup of tea.
Interested in purchasing one of these beauties for yourself? Why the hell wouldn't you... they're proper wicked fam! Various options to do just that can be found here.
Manifest my friends, and push the creative envelope wherever you can.

World News Soundcloud Explodes Into Life
"World News Wednesdays" they're calling it. We were confused why, but then the pair explained that they'll be releasing improvised electronic music moments of all shapes and sizes to SoundCloud every Wednesday.
So far they are keeping well to their promise, and this week released a popping little ditty labelled TSBCMMVVI02.
What sort of instruments can you expect to hear? Synthesizers and drum machines of course.

Calm Down Just a Little Bit
Welcome to 2021! We're starting this year with a bang — a bang for your buck. Yes, that's right, our very own electronic duo World News will be releasing a single package for Descenending on Jan 22nd.
"A package?!", I hear you exclaim?
Exactly, and this package includes a music video from visionary cinematographer Brennan Martin, four incredible remixes from Know Itself (Berlin), Paulo Sinski (Toronto), rryrry (Sweden) and Sages (Hamilton), and, finally, a live version of the track recorded with a single but incredibly technical microphonic device left on a bar at the back of the room of World News' most recent performance in Toronto.
Yes! You yourself will be able to take an auditory seat in an audience hall once more, and remember what it is like to drink and be merry.
So set your watches for this Friday 22nd Jan 2021. It's going to be a day, much like many other days, but with an additional Safe Sounds package for your listening pleasure.
Calm down just a little bit. Try not to drink on your own. Do what makes you happy and be kind to others.
