My Debut novel ‘The Tangle’ will be published in November 2021. Pre order now.

The Tangle_Cover reveal_insta
I’m very happy to announce that my debut novel will be published on November 4th by @whiterabbitbks The novel is a supernatural trip into the mysterious knot of nature where murder, vengeance and terror unfold but where redemption can also be found in the roots. The book is also fully illustrated with some of my new work inspired by the novel. Available to pre- order now from all good book retailers. Here is the link to Rough Trade.
http://bit.ly/TheTangleRoughTrade
‘Justin Robertson’s debut novel is a trans- dimensional trip into the mysterious knot of nature; a journey into the ‘brilliant darkness’ where the timeless divine spirit of the ‘Tangle’ weaves its spell and all mankind’s hubris is rendered insignificant by the radically non-human force of phantom ecology. Salvation, revelation and a terrible reckoning dwell in the ancient roots … A time traveling account of what occurs when unknowable frontiers are breached and humanity finds itself, once again, lost in the woods, THE TANGLE invites us into a grotesque world of eco-horror, echoing with the spirit of writers such as Saki, Ballard, MR James, Ursula Le Guin, Brian Catling and Thomas Ligotti’ #debutnovel #authorsofinstagram #whiterabbitbooks

A new Formerlover release. Discomfort. 04.09.20

The new musical project with Sofia Hedblom has a new installment, best described as music for beaches and basement. Discomfort’ is a sun dappled, bittersweet love letter, drenched in 60’s surf echo and the spectral shimmer of slide guitar. The song is an hypnotic reading of longing, lost in time. Underpinned by a bassline that simultaneously rattles the speakers and warms the heart, ‘Discomfort’ evokes the timeless sound of late summer nights. 04.09.2020.

    The Glade Area Glastonbury- A tribute to Andrew Weatherall.

    My contribution to the beautiful tribute to Andrew Weatherall which is unfolding nicely on @gladeareaglastonbury has just dropped on @Mixcloud.

     

    If you wish to mark Andrew’s memory we would be grateful for any donations made to charities that were important to him: Amnesty International, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Thrombosis UK, Crisis
    Please Donate here http://rottersgolfclub.com

     

    Always moving forward whilst nodding fondly at the past, seeking inspiration for our  journey into the future.

     

     

    It is a tall order trying to stitch together an hour and a half’s worth of music to pay tribute to one of dance music’s true geniuses. There are not enough hours available to cover the spectrum of sound that he mastered.  Andrew Weatherall was a wizard, a magician, a conductor of musical energy, the Guvnor. There is a lot of ridiculous hyperbole surrounding the art of Djing, but in Andrew’s case all the superlatives are deserved, his passion shone through every set he played, they were like rituals where real magic happened.

     

    His inspiration will continue to feed those fascinated by the alchemy of ‘acid house’ and the wonder of outsider music in all its forms. So, with that in mind I thought I would explore just a small corner of the musical galaxy, what Andrew would call ‘oompty boompty music’. He could bring the rave like no other, always looking for new sounds and obscure tracks to baffle and delight. I’m still struggling to find most of them after years of searching. This mix is a mixture of new tracks, because Andrew was an evangelist for the new, and older tracks that remind me of him. I’ve included a couple of numbers I made that Andrew took the time to call me about. It was a great buzz to get his feedback and to know he was into what you were doing. He was always encouraging and positive like that, as I’m sure countless producers will testify.

     

    In this particular potion you will find tunes and snippets from Andrew himself, a spot of lysergic boogie, a pinch of hypnotic trance dance, machine funk bangers, cosmic wigglers and all manner of galactic disco business. Transport yourself to the basement or field of your imagination. Until we meet again, thank you for everything my friend. X
