Dicepeople is a musical project created by Matt Brock. Dicepeople was originally set up in London, UK in the mid-90s as an electronic side project when Brock was more heavily involved with industrial acts Noise Union and Replikator. In 2008, however, Brock transformed Dicepeople into his primary musical project and, with it, aimed to go beyond pure electronic music. The tagline for Dicepeople is 'dark electronica for the body and mind' because Brock's aim is to create music that combines driving beats with evocative and emotionally engaging harmonies and melodies.

Whirr is the name of at least two artists: 1. With their steady ebb and flow of warm, effects-laden sounds, northern California’s Whirr (Formerly Whirl) give the sounds of 90s shoegaze a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. The young sextet’s walls of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance.

Micromattic is an artist collective working towards a truly groundbreaking concept for stage presentation of electronic music and visuals. We manipulate sound and images through movement with Nintendo Wii controllers, we beatbox and use our voices to generate sounds which we then loop, warp and twist in abstract textures. Now imagine all this served on a base of monochrome deep hypnotic IDM Techno grooves. That's what we are about!
