triphop // downtempo // chillout // nujazz // instrumentalhiphop

The average speed of a bullet is 336m/s. At this speed, once the Guns of Bristol shoot, you enter a state of clinical death. Once a week, imagine you disappear from the surface of the Earth following the White Rabbit in the rhythm of downtempo and chill out for an hour.
Trip-hop spread like mushrooms after the rain creating unique local scenes. It's exactly these mushrooms that the Guns of Bristol explores. Swim in the lake of low and slow frequencies.
It's our attempt to introduce rainy Glasgow to teardrops of trip-hop.

news

the end of a fairy tale

I am really sorry to inform that Guns Of Bristol won't be broadcasting this semester. The amount of workload in University doesn't make it possible to run a good quality radio show and 'Guns Of Bristol' should never go worse. Only better. That's why I decided to take a break and come back in a time that will allow me to dedicate as much heart and time to this project as both Guns Of Bristol and you, dear listeners, deserve.

It's been a wonderful adventure to show you all these amazing tunes. You've heard all my voice, trembling, hesitations and fuck ups, but also the laughter and fascination with music. After almost a year I am convinced Guns Of Bristol was worth all these sleepless nights, because I had a chance to share these aural sensations with those who appreciated it. Hopefully, some time in a broad future Guns Of Bristol will come back to broadcast. Meanwhile, in my attempts to push the domino block, I hope I wobbled at least some of them and made you interested in trip-hop. Good luck with new musical discoveries and thanks for listening.

the homeland of elves

Guns of Bristol // 01.12.11 // The Homeland Of Elves

Anyone who bothered at least once to search for some great music from somewhere apart from English speaking UK and US certainly knows that the northern country of Sweden is a goldmine of good music. Anything from metal to pop can be found there. But Guns Of Bristol obviously are going to focus on chillout. And find out how the skandinavian mythology of elves, closeness to the nature, relaxed and casual lifestyles and 'fika's affect the creativity of people from the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Tonight we're finding the source of bright tones in Brighton. First of all there's a visit in Tru Thoughts label is in plan.

the songs from sunburnt country

Guns of Bristol // 10.11.11 // The Songs From Sunburnt Country

"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia."

This time we're turning the globe round. Smoothly touching with our fingertips the rough geographic surface of the warm earth of Antipodes. Surfing on the Aussie chillout sounds. Time for another supersonic daydream journey. So faraway. So far with sounds.

new york, new york

Guns of Bristol // 27.10.11 // New York, New York

New York, such a beautiful disease. Walking around the Brooklyn streets, listening to the echoes and sounds. Filtering chillout from the crowd. Breathing in the contagious bacterias of musical toxines. Come over, die peacefully around the sounds in the middle, speak softly 'New York, I love you, but you're bringing me down.' Musical katharsis, to be a new born again, you first have to die.
