Mumford & Sons
One of the most successful acts to come out of the first decade of the 21st century's English folk revival, London's Mumford & Sons' agreeable fusion of bluegrass, folk, country, and rock has found favour with audiences all around the world. Formed in 2007 by singer / guitarist / drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo / Dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist / keyboardist Ben Lovett, and vocalist / bassist Ted Dwane, the quartet bonded over their shared love of roots music - their moniker is meant to invoke the impression of an antiquated family business name. At that time the West London folk scene was becoming increasingly vibrant with the arrival of fellow new traditionalists like Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Johnny Flynn but Mumford & Sons have gone on to outsell and outshine them all with their success!

Formerly the bassist for the Housemartins and one-third of acid house hitmakers Pizzaman, Cook started by releasing his Fatboy material through club staple Skint, with his raucous blend of house, acid, funk, hip-hop, electro, and techno adding to his already formidable reputation as one of the foremost all-around producers on the UK club scene. More than two decades on, he's still one of the biggest DJs in the world.

Instead the meeting of three talents form a foundation from which ideas assimilate and propagate.

Streatham rapper, known simply as Dave, started out as a classically trained pianist. He soon broadened his musical palette and explored rap, bringing him to the attention of Drake, who remixed the song Wanna Know. 'He's clocked up millions of views and streams across tracks such as 'JKYL+HYD', 'Thiago Silva', and his much revered 'Fire In The Booth' appearance. Street-wise and book-smart, Dave's plaintive rhymes and social commentary coupled with his versatility across different styles and tempos. He's both beautifully righteous and jaw-droppingly raw.'

Simian Mobile Disco
Debaucherous minimalist rave from London duo James Ford and James Shaw.

Katherine also appeared regularly throughout the second series of Episodes as Merc's Assistant. 'She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks' (Time Out) 'If only every comedian was as acerbic, smart and downright funny as Katherine Ryan' (Eastern Daily Press) 'This entertaining hour... flies by... all the hallmarks of an increasingly assured comic...' (Steve Bennett, Chortle) 'Warped wit... striking presence... killer lines... calm confidence' (The Scotsman) 'Thoughtful, funny and just twisted enough' (The Times).
