‘Fejká’ is not just a word, but a concept – a melodic blend between soft, dreamy atmospheres and the punchy vibe of techno. Torn between those two worlds like a lone wanderer, he developed his own unique way to find a perfect balance between both. His music offers a very atmospheric and soulful sound, laying somewhere between melancholy and euphoria, resulting in a unique interpretation of emotions which is seldom heard on the dancefloor.
Merry’s music is a mesmerising fusion of late-night dancefloor beats and evocative and ethereal melodies. Her tracks are trilingual – transitioning effortlessly between three tongues, with each language revealing a different facet of her personality – calmness in English, directness in Cantonese and poetic nuances in Mandarin.
Miso Extra is the solo project and moniker behind the fast-rising London-based singer, rapper and producer. Rapping in both English and Japanese, the use of the two languages symbolises darkness and light. In the UK, most people understand English while a minority understand Japanese; in the Misoverse, English is used to represent surface-level joy while an internal struggle and deeper self-reflection is conveyed through Japanese.
London three piece, Moin, navigate a revolving set of influences; from alt rock, post-punk, art-rock and doom metal to more abstract ideas found in improv and found sound recording. The band’s decade of friendship is evident in their subtle but direct sound. This will be big.
Shygirl is undisputedly the moment, and she’s returning for pt.2 of the nymph tour. Shy’s contemporary jumble of sultry rap, pop, house, grime and deconstructed club has become the soundtrack of a new generation (and Rihanna’s Fenty shows). Through everything she touches – from shape-shifting visuals and square-shooting lyrics to the Nuxxe collective and record label – Shygirl is creating her own universe, and it just keeps blowing up.
Thumping, carefree synth-pop from Amsterdam-based Pip Blom. We’re looking forward to being back in The Lantern, a beautiful, recently renovated space within the Bristol Beacon, which last hosted music back in 2018. This one is going to be special for sure.
Amsterdam-based collective Personal Trainer sound like your favorite indie-rock tracks mashed with big-hearted pop. Joining them are playful pop-punkers Pom Poko, whose sugary, experimental, math-rock-influenced songcraft has received nominations for both the Nordic Music Prize & Norweigan Grammys.
The emotive, cinematic break-beat trio are back, playing music from their exhilarating new album along with songs from their luminous back catalogue. Bursting with the optimism of new beginnings, with a new drummer, a new record label and a subtly updated and developed sound, the band are ushering in a more sonically liberated era.
