Jagwar Ma

Jagwar Ma came together in Sydney Australia when Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield bonded over a mutual passion of melody and experimental beats, and the pair set out creating a sound that would capture their love for contemporary electronica & classic American pop harmony, Joe Meek & King Tubby, vintage drum machines & radio frequency manipulation, improvised percussion and other esoteric methods of creating sound.

Jamie Isaac

Within the opening bars of his debut EP, 'I Will Be Cold Soon', it suddenly becomes very clear that 18-year-old singer/producer Jaime Isaac inhabits a space like no other emerging talent. While his voice may be flooring, his command of the piano arresting, and the delicate textures of his electronic production infectious, no one facet can explain the singularity of what he does.

Klangstof

For Koen Van De Wardt, making music is a far greater pursuit than simply creating something to catch someone else’s ear. “The more people that respond to my music the less lonely I feel,” admits the singer and musical architect who records ethereal, oft- hushed but forever gripping synth-anchored music under the moniker Klangstof. “For me it’s just about getting in the studio and erasing all the bad feelings I have in my mind.”

Slydigs

Not many bands can return from a debut North American tour supporting rock legends The Who and claim standing ovations at every show to their name. Featuring in newspapers and on TV stations alike, Slydigs have certainly made a mark across the pond from their homeland.

MALKY

MALKY are singer Daniel Stoyanov and producer/keyboard-whizz Michael Vajna. The duo got together much in reverse of how most relationships end; collaborating almost telepathically right from the word go. They had no choice but to start a band. At the core of the project, Daniel and Michael set out a clear mantra by focusing on recommenced musical concepts of the past. Passionately studying and carefully dissecting 60s-sounds, MALKY re-construct those elements in new ways.
