Dementio13

Dementio13 is a Cardiff-based producer/remixer; recording solo since 1999. His music is a curious mix of Krautrock-influenced drones, experimental electro, film soundtracks, post-rock, drum n bass and psychedelia. Dementio13 often deletes his older releases which no longer 'fit' his musical vision; in his own words, "Music is temporary." His back-catalogue is always changing.
He has also been involved in collaborative projects with the international duo Cwtch, the music collective, Sal Boca and his other solo project Diebenkorn.

MudJack

MudJack originally formed around November 2006 when OJ, Kieran and Sam met in a local blues jam. Tom O'Keeffe completed the lineup by joining on bass in April 2007. Due to lack of material, the band depended largely on improvisation in their earlier shows. Having written and gigged extensively since, MudJack recorded their first EP titled 'Follow Me' in June 2008 with Joe Gibb of Mighty Atom Studios.
