It's eclectic and electric; New releases If you've been to a gig or listened to an album or single and want to leave your opinons, log on to:


HEATON electro outfit the Karoshi Bros have announced the release of their next single Love The World, which will be out on the We Are Woodville label on August 4.

Sam and Dan Burt are the genre mesh heads behind The Karoshi Bros, who started their career in a rock outfit with Lucas from Maximo Park.

However, finding themselves gravitating to an eclectic sound of trip-hop and electronic music, the brothers broke away, creating tracks where the lyrics are as important as the beats.

Love The World is a hypnotically funky, synth-laden, speaker-drenching, dancefloor banger.

The track slipped out late last year and after a great reaction in clubs all the way from China to Newcastle via Sweden, the single is now being officially released as a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl as well as a download.

The Ingo Star Cruiser remix is already receiving boundless superlatives from man of the moment Erol Alkan for its jackin' baselines, pummeling electro-funk and dance-floor swagger.

Using vocals of people who have never sung before keeps each Karoshi Bros track sounding unique, with the Love The World vocalist found via MySpace in China.

The duo are also hoping to plan a series of warehouse parties and gigs later this year, which will showcase the gritty, intensity of the group live.

But for now Love The World is just the start of what is to come from Newcastle's answer to Justice.

You can catch the Karoshi Bros at The Cumberland Arms in Byker, on Saturday, July 19.
