Up first is the Tiny Masters of Today track, Skeletons. This has minimalist guitars and repetitive lyrics over drum loops. It’s a catchy song written by young kids (ages 13 and 15).
Next is Colours by Charlotte Hatherley. This is my favorite song of the set. It”s solid power pop songwriting. There’s a classic early 90′s alternative sound to the recording.
Following that is Trip It Up by Nursery of Naughtiness. It’s an electronica song. It would play well over an action movie where our hero is coked up and kicking ass.
Finally is Maximo Park’s The Kids Are Sick Again. It’s a pretty good upbeat rock song. There’s a good use of keyboards that can be uncommon anymore. Also, the vocals remind me a little of Tears For Fears, which is always a good thing.

Bio: The Nursery of Naughtiness began as a merger of two producers Alastair Dawson and Gavin Whyte. The purpose in mind was to create a new and exciting dance act to create dance music with a razor sharp edge. These guys fuse elements of tough breaks, electronica and ambient to create a diverse sound reminiscent of the likes of The Prodigy and Aphex Twin.
Nursery of Naughtiness continue to push their music to new boundaries. Expect big beats, live guitars, synths, chunky helpings of bass and the odd chilled out moment just for good measure. Support so far has come from the likes of Radio 1′s Steve Lamacq and Annie Nightingale.
Keep your eyes peeled for N.o.N’s live show – consisting of Alastair on synths and laptop, Gavin on sample pads and Tony C as frontman / MC. They debuted at London’s SOUNDS club on Leicester Square earlier this year when they caught the eye of Chemical Brothers’ DJ, DJ Physical, who was so impressed he tracked down the guys via email and said: ‘I was grinning from ear to ear during your gig. It sounded brilliant. By far the best dance music I’ve heard for a long time’.
Nursery of Naughtiness release a new EP “Wreckless” out in December.To celebrate we have a rare track from the band as well as great remix of a Prodigy tune.

NON are back with the third installment of the “Lesson” EP’s. The first two EP’s have been staples in my late night listening with their very unique brand of electronic music . For “Lesson 3” the band just blew my mind with three absolutely authentic bangers. The first track is “The Requiem” starts with a sample out of the far east and then explodes right in to your speakers. The track uses vocals cleverly throughout the track each popping out at the right time. At times it is hard to really understand what they are saying and I can’t help but get fired up for some reason. Then as the track fades out you hear two vocalists say “I want to watch the world burn down.” “The Collision” never slows down one second as it is constantly in your face. “The Nameless” starts with a little funk and begins to really heat up at the end with a lot of weird noises.
“Lesson 3” follows in a great string of series from the band. The EP’s are each top notch but this one might be the best. The band have upped their game all over this. “The Requiem” on a CD three times would get me to buy this. The track is really that good.
