Poldoore

Poldoore
Poldoore brengt een ingenieuze blend tussen oude soul, funk en hiphop met zomerse new school beats, zowel achter de draaitafels als tijdens zijn eigen producties. Sinds begin 2011 wordt zijn muziek uitgebracht door het Amerikaanse label Cold Busted, dankzij wie deze jonge Leuvenaar tot op heden een debuut EP, twee vinyl releases, enkele remixen en zelfs een full album op zijn naam heeft staan.

Red Snapper

Red Snapper
Red Snapper are a British instrumental band founded in London in 1993 by Ali Friend (double bass), Richard Thair (drums), and David Ayers (guitar). The three core members are also joined by various guest musicians and vocalists on different records. According to music journalist, Jason Ankeny (Allmusic) "the British acid jazz trio were notable for their pioneering synthesis of acoustic instruments and electronic textures". Stylistically, Red Snapper's music contains elements of jazz, funk, jungle, trip-hop, hip-hop and breakbeat, as well as references to early psychedelic and progressive rock. The band released three EPs before signing to Warp Records for their debut album, Prince Blimey (1996).[1] The band were a somewhat unusual feature of Warp Records' 1990s roster: in contrast to the studio-oriented IDM the record label primarily dealt in, the band had a live and organic sound: a smoky mixture of dub, jazz and all tempos of breakbeat from trip hop to drum and bass. In 1997, Red Snapper (along with the Foo Fighters) supported The Prodigy on their Fat of the Land tour in the UK For their follow-up Making Bones they were joined by jungle MC Det, Byron Wallen the jazz trumpeter and singer Alison David. The latter was replaced by Karim Kendra by their third album, Our Aim Is to Satisfy (2000). In early 2002, Red Snapper announced its dissolution. Also in 2002 the compilation album It's All Good was released. It included a previously unreleased track, "Ultraviolet".

Kelpe

Kelpe
*Kelpe is Kel Mckeown, from Loughborough, England. As a young teenager, Kel McKeown (AKA Kelpe) decided that sampling and sequencing might provide him with a safer past time than bone splintering skateboarding mishaps. The initial efforts made on a Commodore Amiga with a sampler provided him with a discipline and focus that is of fundamental importance to the creative process that he currently employs in the execution of his distinctive beat creations. Kelpe's influences range from the bleeps & bass of classic Warp artists to the funk of Sly Stone, and the minimalism of Steve Reich Harmonia to the percussive space-scapes of Tortoise Do Make Say Think. The diversity of the music that inspires Kelpe finds reflection in his own sonic adventures, informing his ever evolving sound, combining as map and compass to guide his lunar-bound b-boy throw downs. Coming to the attention of DC Recordings in early 2003, his first release for label was the 12" EP 'The People are Trying to Sleep', a wide eyed carnival of fractured beats and warped electronics. This was followed by the critically acclaimed album 'Sea Inside Body' (September 2004), an album described by The Wire as "One of the most engrossing listens in recent electronic music". In 2005 came bedroom discotheque 12" 'Sunburnt Eyelids' and In 2008 came double LP 'Ex-Aquarium' (2008) and remix companion 'Extraquarium' (featuring Zombie Zombie, Fulgeance, Architeq etc). Most recently, in October 2009 third full length 'Cambio Wechsel' arrived, which BBC Music described "as irresistible as Prefuse 73 or Flying Lotus's most commended collections". In early 2008, to support the release of 'Ex-Aquarium' Kelpe teamed up with ubiquitous drummer Chris Walmsley (Voice of The Seven Woods, Broadcast, Psapp etc) for a new live setup incorporating the traditional drum kit and MPC style beat manipulations whilst not being afraid to embrace modern technology (i.e. a laptop computer!). Within a few months of this new duo's first gig they found themselves in sold out venues supporting the likes of Holy Fuck, To Rococo Rot and others. The explosive live act has travelled far and wide, from Lithuania to California, playing alongside diverse acts such as Aphex Twin, Jaki Liebezeit , Prefuse 73, and Daedelus. Chris Walmsley (AKA 'All Traps Set') also made a guest appearance on latest album 'Cambio Wechsel', providing the heavy rhythmic backdrop to the bass driven 'Closed Cup Headroom'. Kelpe has also shone as an innovative remixer, re-working Red Snapper, Jean Jacques Perrey, The Oscillation (DC), Eliot Lipp (Mush), Fulgeance (Musique Large) Architeq (Tirk) among others.

Hooverphonic

Hooverphonic
Hooverphonic is a Belgian rock/pop group formed in 1995. Though initially placed in the trip-hop genre, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be classified so easily. The band originally called themselves Hoover but later changed their name to Hooverphonic due to other groups using the Hoover name. The band achieved international recognition through the inclusion of the track 2Wicky (from A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular) on the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci's 1996 film Stealing Beauty (Io Ballo da Sola). The original members of the group were vocalist Liesje Sadonius, keyboardist Frank Duchêne, bass guitarist and programmer Alex Callier, and guitarist Raymond Geerts. Sadonius left Hooverphonic on amicable terms shortly after the release of A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular and was replaced by Geike Arnaert in early 1998. Duchêne left the band after Blue Wonder Power Milk. By the end of 2008 Hooverphonic announced that Geike Arnaert was leaving the band. Last we heard, Hooverphonic were still looking for a new lead singer. Hooverphonic released their fifth studio album No More Sweet Music in November 2005, featuring four singles: Wake Up, You Hurt Me, Dirty Lenses and We All Float. One year later they released a Best Of album called Singles 96-06. This was their latest release under the Sony label. Hooverphonic released their latest album The President Of The LSD Golf Club on 8th October 2007 in Belgium and Holland, which includes the single Expedition Impossible. European Release January 2008 (although available via mail-order). This was an independent release, recorded at the Willie Nelson studios in the USA. At the time of writing, it isn't known if it was also released in North America. Let us know if you can confirm this? On October the 10th '08 the management announced that Geike Arnaert will be leaving the band.

JERBOA

JERBOA
"Jonge Gentenaar die zeer overtuigend in het spoor van DJ Shadow treedt. Of hoe cut en paste tot impressionante sampelhop leidt. Luister naar zijn debuut ""Music for My Instruments""."

Little Dragon

Little Dragon
"Little Dragon stond twee jaar na elkaar op Pukkelpop (2008 en 2009), nu komen ze in Petrol hun nieuwe plaat voorstellen. Volgens De Standaard klinkt die ""bijzonder fris"", ""complexloos en avontuurlijk"". Er wordt vergeleken met Prince, La Roux en Lykke Li. Jazzy uithalen netjes uitgestald op subtiel rammelende elektronica, met soul en r'n'b. Een licht verteerbare bitterzoete delicatesse, met muzikanten (en het lief) van José Gonzalez. Iets speciaals, wondermooi."

Tokimonsta

Tokimonsta
Born and raised in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) was an unfocused pupil of classical piano. However, she has come to use this background to understand and create vast soundscapes and textures through the usage of live instruments, percussion, digital manipulation, and dusty vinyl. Through the creation of beats, she is able to fuse the sounds of the past with her musical prowess into something avant garde all while preserving old school vibes.
