Pusha T claims the band predicted the reality TV star’s election triumph.
Gorillaz unveiled their new Pusha T and Mavis Staples collaboration ‘Let Me Out’ yesterday – the next track to be lifted from their new album Humanz.
Pusha T later dropped into Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show to chat about the collaboration, during which he discussed some of the ideas behind the album, explaining that when Albarn initially asked rapper to contribute last year, he told him “to conceptualize the album, you know, like the album’s a party for the end of the world, like if Trump were to win.” This was spring 2016 – Trump’s presidency was barely even an imagined horror at that point, let alone a reality.
The 12-inch also includes a new, unreleased version of the track from Goldie himself.
Metalheadz will put out Burial’s remix of “Inner City Life” by Goldie, as part of a Record Store Day special release this month.
Nice one bruva.
Hot on the heels of Trainspotting 2, the follow-up to ’90s club culture classic Human Traffic is now also being written by the film’s original writer and director, Justin Kerrigan.
Rumours about the movie started a few months ago when a Facebook page emerged called Human Traffic: The Revolution, accompanied by the description: “Friends reunite to have fun in Ibiza!”
Danny Dyer, who starred in the 1999 film as Moff, teased the sequel release on Twitter yesterday (May 16), writing: “Moff. One of my favourite characters ever. That’s all I’m saying on the matter.”
The British-Irish movie centered around five rave-loving twenty-somethings and a drug-fuelled weekend in Cardiff and was famed for its use of archival footage in creating social and political commentary. The soundtrack was a seminal document of its time, featuring some of dance music’s biggest names, including Fatboy Slim and Carl Cox.

Highbury Magistrates Court has today approved the agreement.
London’s fabric nightclub will reopen soon.
After it emerged that the club was in talks with Islington council and Metropolitan police to have its license reinstated, an agreement was rubber-stamped today at Highbury Magistrates Court. The agreement will see fabric reopen with a new set of licensing conditions. The exact reopening date has not been decided.
Philip Kolvin QC, one of the lawyers who’s been representing fabric since its license was revoked in September, told the court that fabric “has always set about trying to lead the industry,” and has engaged in a “root and branch reappraisal” of its operating procedures.
The 38 new conditions in the agreement have been outlined by fabric and the police in a joint statement, which you can read in full below. They include the use of a new ID scanning system, enhanced searching procedures, physical changes to the club, and lifetime bans for anyone found in possession of drugs or attempting to buy drugs in the club.
