Mercury Music Prize nominated Maps (Mute Records) and Lil Peep's producers Lederrick join Russian Linesman on new album 'If Miniature World Is Our Safe Space, Then Pass Me The Shrink Ray'

'If Miniature World Is Our Safe Space, Then Pass Me The Shrink Ray’ is the new album from Russian Linesman. The project features a number of collaborators, most significantly Mercury Music Prize nominated Maps (Mute Records) and one of Lil Peep's producers Lederrick.

"The album was inspired by a rummage through old boxes of lyrics and diaries during lockdown, this musical journey explores the emotional complexities of navigating modern life while yearning for the simplicity of the past. It delves into the weight of expectations and obligations, transporting listeners to moments of wonder and enchantment and rekindling a sense of curiosity long forgotten.” - Russian Linesman

Russian Linesman's highly anticipated new album "If Miniature World Is Our Safe Space, Then Pass Me The Shrink Ray" has finally arrived after three years in the making. This collaborative project features a range of talented vocalists and producers, including Maps, Lederrick, Valeska Rautenberg, Marta Hagen, Scarlet Season, Liv Naes and Cesca. Working remotely and face to face in the studio to create a unique and captivating album.

"I spent hours on the album's song order. It even borrows from favourite wrestling PPV card, the flow of the matches, up and down like Nevermind and Sgt Peppers. My son Harald came up with the title But Now We’re Not In The Dark. He’s due a writing credit.”  - Russian Linesman

With a fluid sound that defies the clichés of a lockdown album, "If Miniature" is an escape from the stresses of the world. Deconstructing old lyrics in parallel with easier times, the album is a nostalgic trip that explores the moments of childhood when one felt cared for. Channeling a love for nostalgia, the album immerses listeners in a world of wonder that is both familiar and new.

A Short Biography - Russian Linesman

The enigmatic Russian Linesman has been recording music in his Nottingham lair for many years, writing acoustically and capturing snippets of vocals, guitars and pianos, and enclosing them in an expansive digital sarcophagus.

He has released numerous singles, EPs and two studio albums to date - his discography reads like a travelogue (which is rather ironic as he hates people who go on about travelling all the time). But so far, that is what the majority of his music has done - from his first release (a vinyl record) titled ‘Bratislava Story’, to his first full-length album ‘Icelandic Story’ (a concept album inspired by travelling around Iceland).

His follow-up, ‘Nostalgia Story’ was a trip into happy childhood memories interspersed with more recent events, balanced carefully on the borderline of nostalgia. The album’s thirty-seven songs were recorded live in one take.

2017 saw him release an incredibly ambitious project titled ‘The Eysenck Suites I-IV”, a year spanning, critically acclaimed series of 7-track mini-albums that explored the psychological theories of Hans Eysenck. This was followed in 2018 by a project featuring an array of remix interpretations of some of the ‘Eysenck Suites’ finest moments.

Throughout 2019 – 2020 he put out a project consisting of six four-track EPs released , at bi-monthly intervals.

He also runs the Loki Recordings label in his spare time.

slEdger INFO:

Dubby electronic music with an indie dance vibe not really fitting any easy genre, slEdger is the latest musical project from London based Dj/Producer Rob Vision.

Rob has released music under various names over the last 15 years gaining support from people as diverse as John Digweed, Mary Anne Hobbs, Ashley Beedle and Annie Nightingale on BBC Radio 1, he’s also DJ'ed at various seminal UK clubs like Back To Basics, Elements and Turnmills often playing in the more musically experimental back rooms. 

From being a roadie, drummer, club dj, pirate radio host, club promoter, music pr and booker for other artists, Rob's journey in music has been a varied one to say the least, but with slEdger he may finally have found his musical calling.



Nick Warren - Global clubland and production legend, known for Way Out West, The Soundgarden, Global Underground, active since 88.

Nicolas Rada - DJ'ing and producing professionally since 2007, Argentinian born and long time collaborator with Nick Warren.

Crisp production, and driving beats alongside the elliptical tones of the original 'Softcastle' release, have been re-dramatised by 'Nick Warren & Nicolas Rada'. This track sits nicely being played anywhere in the world, think 4am in a club, festival or after hours, the sun has not quite hit the curvature of the earth, but it will.

Sean Johnston (ALFOS) airs a new mix on Rob Da Banks Worldwide FM show & releases new Hardway Bros single.




Sean Johnston (ALFOS) airs a new mix on Rob Da Banks Worldwide FM show this Sunday 03/07/22.

He also releases the new Hardway Brothers release:







Outre-Mer is a new digital imprint founded by DJ & Producer Sean Johnston. Best known for his decade long globe-trotting DJ partnership with the late Andrew Weatherall as A Love from Outer Space and his productions and remixes as Hardway Brothers, Outre-Mer will be an outlet for like-minded souls and musical mavericks.

The first release in co-operation with long time partners Timm and Ampo at Is It Balearic? Is The Summerisle Six - This Is Something. Hot on the heels of a Juno number 1 selling vinyl 12” on Is It Balearic, Outre-Mer are excited to release the digital EP on all major streaming and download platforms.

Sean has put together some righteous compadres to form a new project - The Summerisle Six. Featuring Jo Bartlett (Yellow Moon Band and Kodiak Island) on vocals, Andy Bell (Oasis and Ride amongst others) & Duncan Gray on guitars, Kev Sharkey (That Petrol Emotion, The Undertones, Elvis Costello to name a few) on percussion, Mick Somerset Ward on Sax (Clock DVA, Was Not Was, Crooked Man). This Is Something is a driving pop groover reminiscent of a late 80's / early 90's Indie Dance anthem. The Dub mix invites the OG mix to ALFOS, turns the lights off and presses the smoke button for a chuggy heartwarming trip across the dance floor. There are no words to describe Rico Conning’s mix other than to say this 10 min journey has to be heard to be believed. A genuine Balearic gem.
