Christine & The Queens
Christine & The Queens is Nantes-born Héloïse Letissier. Moving to London to study in 2010, Letissier found herself drawn to the art and theatre underworld of Soho, where she met the drag queens of Madame JoJo’s who inadvertently helped birth Christine & The Queens.

Despite growing up in the same picturesque village, Chris Davids and Liam Ivory, aka Maribou State, customarily ignored each other at school, but discovered their shared passion for music at university in Leeds and became firm friends. Since then they have steadily built a glowing reputation via their debut album, a string of well-loved EPs, and a fistful of remixes (Including Kelis, Lana Del Rey, and Ultraísta). Plaudits from the electronic press have flowed thick and fast alongside support from radio heavyweights: Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Giles Peterson, and Pete Tong amongst others. Intrigued by the dynamics of electronic music for the dance floor as much as with the richness and human quality of live instrumentation and song craft, the have worked tirelessly to evolve and forge a unique, compelling and deeply soulful marriage of the organic and the synthetic, showcased on their debut LP, Portraits.

Honne might hail originally from the British Isles' sleepy south west but you wouldn't know it from the lusty, late night, urbanite feel of 'Warm On A Cold Night'. The latest release from electronic imprint Super Recordings, responsible for early singles from likes of AlunaGeorge and Bondax, this debut single sees the pair - identified in their press release as Andy and James, two music teachers from Somerset and Wiltshire via Bow - pit fizzing James Blake electronics against Frank Ocean style croons honey-dipped in soul. Threaded with FM radio chatter and seductive R&B guitars, it's an emphatic statement of things to come from the duo.

Toro Y Moi
Having spent his formative years playing in punk and indie rock acts, the protean Toro Y Moi project has been Chaz Bundick's vessel for further musical exploration since 2001. In his latter years studying graphic design at the University of South Carolina, Chaz became increasingly focused on his solo work, incorporating electronics and allowing a wider range of influences - French house, Brian Wilson's pop, 80s R&B, and Stones Throw hiphop - to show up in his music.
