Simian Mobile Disco
Debaucherous minimalist rave from London duo James Ford and James Shaw. Using the kind of vintage minimal beats that only a 1980's Casio can produce, this eccentric pair somehow manage to make techno sexy with their use of static vocals and fragmented rhythms; '...twisted disco as it should be.' - RoughTrade.

Etta Bond isn’t interested in the ordinarily. The Cambridge born, London living singer isn’t trying to sit down and fit in. Making her music as much about feminist expression as it is about creative gratification, Bond is opinionated, forceful and she has a point to make, artistically and politically. And the word is spreading. Etta is not only signed to Labrinth’s Odd Child label, but over the past few years, she’s smoothly worked with everyone from Wretch 32 to Plan B, Bonkaz and Skepta, testament to her individuality as an artist that she’s attracted such top-tier talent.
