Dark Horses
Taking their cues from an expansive array of sources, Dark Horses blend psychedelia, rock and electronica with moving image, monochrome lighting and photography

'A series of lullabies underpinned by synths and slow, droning basslines befits the mythological symbolism and imagery that accompanies it.' Dazed & Confused

Normanton Street
Based in Brighton, Normanton Street have quickly amassed a loyal following of fans around the world from musical prowess and a lot of hard work. In the last 18 months, they’ve played gigs and festivals across the UK, Europe and US as well as opening for high-profile artists like Mercury-nominated poet and former Brighton Festival guest director Kate Tempest. 

Abi Wade
Using cello, vocals, orchestral arrangements, choral ensembles, location samples, synths and piano, Abi Wade explores human nature through real and abstracted personas. Haunting brass and a blissful wind section filters through sweeping strings to form an orchestral arrangement that perfectly complements Wade’s heartfelt lyrics on relationships and human nature.

Bobbie Johnson
Brighton based MC, singer and producer extraordinaire, Conscious thought and social commentary showcased on her latest EP You & I. Over the past year, she has been supporting the likes of Rag N Bone Man, Roots Manuva, The Pharcyde and festival stages around the UK and Europe, she has gained the nickname of the ‘Rapping Adele’ increasing her fan base with every show she commands, promoting the new age voice of hip hop. 

Breathe Panel
Between writing in a shared house basement and taking long walks on the South Downs, Breathe Panel have crafted their own sound based around the intuitive songwriting partnership of Josh Tyler and Nick Green. Recalling thoughtful days spent outdoors, Nick's vocals wash across bright, shimmering guitars and intricate drum patterns to create something beautifully expansive yet highly introspective. They combine writing about topics including anxiety, colours, people, memories and the cure of nature with capturing a sound that makes them feel good.

Atlas Wynd
A three piece garage rock band originally from the North East but now based in Brighton

Murmur are a 4-piece grunge band born in East Staffordshire, currently based in Brighton. Reminiscent of 90's grunge with dirty guitar and soaring vocals.

'DITZ combine feedback noodling oddness, enormous hardcore inspired riffs and a rather sardonic vocal delivery that creates a sound that is so ferocious and tongue in cheek, that it is the perfect salve for those bored with po faced humourless groups.' Overblown
