Featuring

Puma Blue

Puma Blue appearing at this event

'Puma Blue, formerly Jacob Allen, are dark/wavey/romancey soulstah-cats residing in South East London. Citing Jeff Buckley, D’Angelo, Billie Holiday, Dilla & John Frusciante as major influences, Puma Blue blends the darker shades of jazz, punk, funk, lazy soul, and an androgynous falsetto to create a sexual, fearless sound with a lot of gut. From his close knit band you can expect downtown sax lines, raunchy guitars and lots of spunk.'

Charlotte Adigery

Charlotte Adigery appearing at this event

Having been taught the ropes by her mother, from rhythm over musicality to a sense of humour and not taking herself too seriously, Adigéry got into music from an early age. Through mutual friends (after all Belgium is a tiny country) she was asked by the Soulwax brothers to lip-sync a song of theirs for the 'Belgica' soundtrack they were producing at the time. As soon as they heard her voice the acting job quickly turned into a studio session... and another... and another. The Dewaele brothers paired her with DEEWEE-regular Bolis Pupul and soon they started started working on a re-enactment of their mutual histories, resulting in lots of heart-to-heart confessions and a local brew by the name of ti'punch, not to mention two EP's for DEEWEE. Charlotte Adigéry's music making is all about playing around until she hits a nerve and something feel-good starts bubbling up - following that vein wherever it may lead. For eclectic as her music may sound, combining bits of smartphone-recorded conversation with synths as sticky as molasses, Adigéry's voice blends all the elements together in a chocolate and vanilla swirl of holistic beats.
