One of the pioneers of '90s Brit pop, Liam Gallagher rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye, before performing as a solo artist after the dissolution of both previous bands. His erratic behaviour, distinctive singing style, and abrasive attitude have been the subject of commentary in the press; but he remains one of the most recognisable figures in modern British music.

Electronic band Disciples make a current yet timeless sound, combining house and garage with a hearty dose of sunshine vibes. Disciples are three young South London friends: Natahn Duvall, Gavin Kool and Luke Mac, who have spent the last few years behind the scenes, working with a diverse range of artists, from Ms Dynamite, Afrojack, to Roses Gabor. Now stepping out of the shadows, and into the spotlight, this trio of multi-talented singer/songwriter/producer/performers, have come together to form the exciting new group Disciples. Writing, producing and even singing (Luke) on their own tracks, the individual strengths of the trio collide to make something bigger than the sum of their parts as they flirt across genres to spin something fresh from their roots in house.

'Louis Berry hails from the city of Liverpool. A switch blade songwriter with a voice of soul. Through politics and crime, love and loss Louis sets its straight. Only recently has music become the escape route for Louis from his past. A chance conversation led to a meeting with a producer that led to a studio session that led to a band. Having only been singing and writing songs for the last couple of years life moves fast for Louis who signed a publishing deal straight after his explosive debut gig for BBC Introducing.'

Surf pop rhythms and garage-rock from this Manchester five-piece. With so much energy, it's like five people screaming down the microphone at once. The NME compared them to Black Lips at their most rancid moments.
