Gaby Amarantos

Gaby Amarantos is a singer and dancer from the city of Belém, in the northern state of Pará and comes from a family of Samba dancers. She's recorded a few CDs, a DVD, has been featured in newspapers and magazines and has made several appearances on Brazilian television shows. Her music sounds like a mashup of 90s Euro rave, moombahton, cumbia, and the kind of Hispanic electro-pop you hear in discos on holiday when you're out of your mind on budget cocktails. Like Gloria Estefan with techno knobs on – or rather, Glozzer in a clinch with Technotronic.

Claire Lynch

Claire Lynch has long been recognized as a creative influence in bluegrass music – first for her early years with Alabama’s Front Porch String Band (which was labeled as “a musical force to be reckoned with” by John Starling), and later for her superb singing and songwriting which have been recorded on five projects for Rounder Records.

Atreides

Wie zegt dat de Nederlandse bandscene weinig te bieden heeft, heeft Atreides nog niet gehoord. Deze formatie van vier jongens en een zangeres staat garant voor bijzonder energieke live performances waarbij zowel publiek als band compleet in de muziek opgaat. De nummers doen in sfeer en toegankelijkheid denken aan Alter Bridge of Paramore, maar met gitaarsolo’s die variëren tussen Eddie van Halen en John Mayer. Ook weerklinkt af en toe de kalme, volle sound van Angels & Airwaves, maar toch staan veel nummers zo stevig als een huis in de stijl van Extreme of Story Of The Year.
