Mikey Murka

Mikey started his career back in 1983 with the legendary Unity Sound System in London. Continually rocking the dancehalls then and being a competitor with Shaka's sound the whole thing grew until Rib, the man behind Unity, finally started to produce own tracks. Thus the absolutely unique Unity sound was created, mostly digital smashers simply done with Casio keyboards and SynDrums, the energetic and easy vocal style of the sound system crew all over the place. Mikey scored a few hits then, like the brilliant 'We Try' or 'Ride Pon The Riddim' which reached no.

This Morning Call

This Morning Call – aka Ben Heyworth - is an electronic/pop producer from the UK. Mixing traditional indie balladry with electronic quirks, glitch and ambience, he draws a somber line under the increasingly creative goings on in the electro scene, whilst putting a quiet rocket under the traditional guitar band set-up. Based in South Manchester, Ben’s unashamedly eclectic and often downbeat style borrows from the likes of Keane, The Postal Service, and A-ha. It’s a new direction in a city already blessed with a rich musical inheritance, an independent spirit and an international reputation.

The Organ Grinder's Monkey

The Organ Grinder’s Monkey is a musical collaboration between man and machine, an unholy alliance whose aim is to combine indie-rocking guitars with glitchy lo-fi electro beats and a dash of retro 8-bit synth. The duo consists of Benjamin Sane: a human who sings and plays guitar, and Bill Murray: the laptop computer who provides the rhythmical backdrop for his organic counterpart. “Stormy Weather” is the title of their latest EP, released in July of this year.
