Jade The Moon are an independent alt – pop band that consists of Dani, Benjamin and Jeremy who started making music from the age of six. They released a brand new single, “The Tide” as the second feature track from their upcoming new album, 11:11. The group says that the collection of tracks on the upcoming release are best described as “musical photographs”. A moment in time turned dance party, true story turned love song, a daydream turned eerie alt-pop lullaby. Real world inspiration. This is the follow up to the group’s self-produced 2015 debut release Habits and Hindrance sees the continued theme of “cycles” in human nature.
“We self produced our first record and our current record ’11:11′ was produced by Colin Munroe …except ‘HOTELS’ by Adam King. We are always very involved in every set of the creative process but it really helps to have some in the room to make sense of all the ideas. We are always looking to collab with new writers/producers. @mikkyekko if your listening ;)”
“Fall Tour Dates in the works. We will also be premiering our short film created and directed by Black/Cartel in Toronto last fall”.
Boys Choir is the new electronic prodigy from Scandinavia. A territory already renowned for its brilliant dance tunes. They deliver a true blend between pop and club music with their hard hitting tracks and infectiously catchy melodies. On June 8th they released their third single, “Sorry” – A lush, grand sounding track with punchy drums, massive synths and glimmering guitars. On vocals we find the amazing voice of HART.
Sergio Hernando A.K.A DJ Soak at the early age of 24 years old has become a top reference in spanish scene electrónic and turntablism. Credentials, of course, is not lacking: in 2003, with only 12 years old, opened an enviable achievements in becoming runner-up Spain in DMC. Since then it has not ceased to be a landmark in the national and international competitions for DMC and ITF, now known as I.D.A.
“A young prodigy from scratch” would be one of the most successful definitions to discuss Soak, and that is that this kid wants to bite the world.
DJ Soak shows an innate talent, which has managed to shape practicing very hard since he barely lifted was a child and used to sneak the dishes of his brother Dj Elko. Soak has grown and grown into one of the new covering of urban culture of our country.
Valencian, but with good hands who could have been forged in the crib from scratch, at it’ s Soak bet the electric rhythms.
It plays in each of them to perfection by mixing electronic, freestyle, hip hop, and requires more than an unbeliever to turn his head toward the cockpit to check that this wonder is scratching vinyl meat and bone, ultimately free music that skips the rules without giving up the party.
The best thing is that the reign of Soak just starting and we can only expect good things very good things, this guy in constant exploration of ways and innovation that transform and magically erase the dividing lines between musical genders.

The Generals are on a mission to bring a new sound to people’s ears whilst capturing the classic sound and feel that was coming out of Jamaica during the 1970′s and 80′s. General Roots live shows come with high energy vibes and feel good sound, Guaranteed!
Field Marshall Fred and The Minister always lead the crowd into battle, supported by dark echoes and treble heavy chops from guitarist Joe Price, powerful keys from King Solomon Boundy and the best rhythm section in town, James and Ben McKone.

“They manage to combine delicate piano and vocals with deep synths and rhythmic elements of house and garage to create ambitious and thoughtful live electronica.” (Crack Magazine)
“An elegiac instrumental featuring a percussion break resembling the distinct, metal-on-metal rattling of trains rolling over railroad switches, altogether building a song both earthbound and angelic.” (Fader)
“No Stars crafts a profound synth-heavy soundscape that is adorned with moaned, soulful vocals and sparse bassline, resulting in an immensely dark, forlorn and atmospheric ballad” (Dummy)
“intricate electronic compositions with an acute focus on songcraft” (XLR8R)

…..our ode to scratch card addiction….
I wanna speak to the manageress,
Someones got to hear my distress,
I payed for that but now I want this,
Not the Silver Scratches on my finger tips…..
HANNAH WANTS // MIXTAPE 1114 (eleven-fourteen) // NOVEMBER 2014
It’s that time again… I’ve dropped this a day early due to a hectic weekend of gigs and to make sure it’s available for your Halloween weekend!
This mix contains 23 tracks that I’m feeling and as always from a variety of genres. I’m rinsing some of these bangers on the dance-floor right now and the others I’m just absolutely in love with.
My mixtape’s are my 80 minute journey of music, my way to explore, express and share my passion. From all sub genres of house music to my outro’s which usually go deep and downtempo, another kind of music I listen to religiously.
Searching for the music and then making them literally takes me days and days but mixtape making is something I really love to do. I hope you enjoy them as much as I love making them!
Big appreciation to all of the producers featured, loving your work! <3<br />
