Folked-up unique singer/songwriter with a green guitar! Rachael Dadd's music harks back to Joni Mitchell and similar folk songstresses of her era, with a sense of innovation in her heartwarming songs.
Semi-nomadic multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd defies categorisation, with her music incorporating influences from folk, Japanese Improv, and Minimalism. Her songs are as likely to feature banjo or clarinet as they are African field recordings or her unborn baby's heartbeat.
Rachael Dadd tour dates
Ichi, from Nagoya in Japan, takes the notion of a one-man band to new limits - combining steel-drum with ping-pong balls, tape-loops with double bass and trumpet with bongos, all in the space of one short set.
Ichi tour dates
Mr Hopkinson is 'a maverick artist who combines bootleg mentalist approach with low-end pop culture. He has toured Russia, supported DJ Food, played at Lovebytes and Rotterdam Film Festival. A regular DJ/mix master on Ninja Tune's 'Solid Steel' this is a man bubbling under and froth free. His new project The Computer Sings involves retro pc hijacking, indie pop classics and dirty graphics'.
