<< IS TROPICAL DJ The critically acclaimed Electronica band from London will grace the decks with the very best of the Electro/Indie scene.
<< BABE SHADOW In a scene dominated by the musings of shoegazers and twittering electronics Tom Cawte, David Thornley, Mark Thorne and Sam Nadel strive to use no special effects and rely solely on their lovelorn, tropical sounding guitars and syncopated percussion. After being nominated as NME Breakthrough Band of the Week and Miss Florence Welsh (Florence & The Machine) included as one of their Top fans you definitely won't be disappointed.
"Babeshadow have been brightening up my pre-tour rituals with their open-hearted calypso-style beautiful pop songs. Their jackets are also pretty smashing." Florence Welsh (Florence & The Machine)
<< ROB THE RICH The Brighton five-some prove that their self described 'Tropical Pop' sound will be a force to be reckoned with, combining the emotion of The Maccabees and the dynamism of The Cribs, with a vibe that reflects their haphazard and brilliant musical techniques that'll ensure a good time will be had by all.
"Charming Brighton quintet Rob the Rich produce a catchy cacophony of guitar brilliance.. a slice of melodic synthy indie-pop infectious enough to brighten even the most British of summer day." The Fly
<< BEATY HEART With a band consisting of three drummers and one 'semi-guitarist' the name really does say it all. This tight-knit group produce tribal, calypso-style beats which have been said to conjure the image of an 'African sensibility' grouped with artistic flair and an outrageous and contagious sense of fun that will bond any crowd.
"London's Beaty Heart are purveyors of woozy, electronic atmospherics approached from a very 80s pop direction. A rich listen for the ears whereupon hooks emerge from crisp soundscapes propelled along by constant grooves" GIITTV
<< ICE BLACK BIRDS This extraordinary Brighton-based band produce a unique sound that will guarantee you will be running to the dancefloor. Drawing influence from 60s and 70s rock ‘n’ roll and a somewhat Bluesy essense, they have received much acclaim and have been tipped as the band to watch out for in 2010 by Radio 1's Huw Stephens.
"Like the Doors if they’d swapped taking acid in the desert for writing coherent rock songs. From Brighton, this band has the anthemic chops to be serious contenders." NME
<< BOP SOCIAL Bop Social are an indie-electro pop 5-piece consisting of Bessel, Jonny, Tom, Colin and Piers from South London. Their fresh take on the electro/alt.indie style blossoms into big songs and a sound that has been described as a 'grittier version of Snow Patrol'. The fierce rocking structures and sparky synth has lead to a successful release of their Debut EP and multiple radio play, including BBC Radio 6 with Tom Robinson.
"File under big anthemic electro indie AND lots of fun!"
"..[an] Inspired fuzz-tastic symphony" South London Press
<< JEUCE Famed for the electrifying reworks and remixes of the popular musical stylings of Daft Punk and Mr Fogg, the tantalizing talents of London-based Dub DJs JEUCE will be joined by DJ OONEA and VISCIOUS CIRCLE to bring you a dedicated night of Dubstep and Dancing.
