AlunaGeorge

A lot of bands meet as kids at school. Others come together after an over-enthusiastic conversation about music at some random party. Aluna Francis and George Reid however, met through the internet. While their online encounter is more MySpace than Match.com, it was in fact through a mutual respect for each other's work that led them to go on to form AlunaGeorge. Now together for just barely a year, the talented duo have been churning out a series of infectious mixes which fuse Francis' sweet vocal harmonies with the hushed electronic stylings courtesy of Reid.

Lily Oakes

Using classical production techniques alongside influences in post-dubstep, indie, underground and garage, there is an emptiness of space integral to the minimalism of the work. 'With artifice devalued; pure, raw emotion is characteristic'. ''Uncovering a bareness is key to this instinctive mode of music making. Every song is a failed attempt to remember. The lyrics, are usually written minutes before recording, the titles to each song seem irrelevant, I use whichever word repeats itself the most.''

Gerry Read

There are a number of producers who are known for being prolific; Roska, Cooly G, Benga to name a few, and now Gerry Read can be added to that list. The Cambridgeshire producer has only a handful of actual releases to his name, but a vault of hundreds. We can well imagine his hardrive straining from the sheer velocity of ideas that he sends our way. Raw, urgent and frequently off kilter, Gerry's production challenges your ears but always manages to lock in the groove.
