Declan McKenna

Declan McKenna is still in his early 20s, but is approaching a new era in his journey as a songwriter. 'Sympathy', the first single from his forthcoming album What Happened to the Beach? is a song that represents the effortless and uncomplicated style of writing that McKenna has been focusing on. "It was important to use fewer words and not over-explain things this time around," he confirms. The album was recorded in LA and produced by Gianluca Buccellati, best known for his work with Arlo Parks and Lana Del Rey. It is a record full of colour, written with the intention of making people feel good. The lasting impression is one of an artist operating at the peak of his confidence, all while pushing himself in new directions. As McKenna puts it, "opening up and embracing the simple things in life has helped me make something that is more authentically me than ever before."

Flume (No Sideshows)

For the past decade, Flume has been dominating the music world with his hypnotic and abstract compositions that awaken the senses. Stemming from a desire to do the opposite of what is typically optimized for the algorithm, Flume’s technique involves weaving layers that are bound with introspection and intrigue. On his most recent album, Palaces, the producer challenges listeners to switch gears and consider Mother Nature’s point of view for a change. Completed during the pandemic after returning to his native Australia, the thought-provoking project reflects this transition as he reconnected with nature and developed an even deeper appreciation for wildlife. As expected, Palaces includes a star-studded lineup of collaborators including Damon Albarn, Caroline Polachek, KUCKA, LAUREL, MAY-A, Oklou, Virgen Maria, and Emma Louise. 

Foals (No Sideshows)

While Foals’ career has spanned more than 15 years – with highlights including a UK #1 album, a further five Top 3 records, and the 2020 BRIT Award for Best Group – their current status isn’t so far from their roots on the Oxford underground scene. That visceral, free-spirited attitude remained as their gigs grew in stature, but an ever-growing catalogue of essential songs plus the musicality of their six-piece live band has taken them to another level. In parallel to their consistently acclaimed albums, Foals have always kept an open mind as to how to uncover new angles to their music and to present it in different ways. Their close links to the electro, techno and house scenes has been reflected by their choices of remixers, calling on unique talents such as RÜFÜS DU SOL, Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Purple Disco Machine and Hot Chip rather than the obvious rota of superstar DJs. 


Griff is the multi-faceted modern pop star where normal rules need not apply. Born and raised in Kings Langley, she started making music early in her teens, also realising at an early age - whether through her Chinese-Jamaican roots or her all-encompassing approach - that she was different. From day one, Griff’s learning curve has proved similarly sideways: she played just one gig prior to the pandemic in support of DIY EP Mirror Talk, with lockdown mixtape One Foot In Front of The Other rocketing Griff to pop stardom whilst stuck in her bedroom. The barrier-breaking project became the first mixtape from a female artist to go top 5, with Griff winning the prestigious BRITS Rising Star, two NME Awards, and surpassing 660M+ streams to date in support of homemade hits like ‘Black Hole’. Finally unleashed from lockdown, Griff has gone on to see the world touring with some of today’s biggest artists: all the while, like anyone her age, trying to find her place in an upside down world.

Holly Humberstone

Always inspired by her environment and how that affects her sense of self and identity, from her parent’s Haunted House to flatshares in London with The Walls Are Way Too Thin, award winning British singer songwriter Holly Humberstone's highly anticipated debut album Paint My Bedroom Black represents her coming of age. Growing from unknown singer at her parents' piano to the most exciting alternative pop stars of her generation, the dark and otherworldly space Holly has built and invited fans into, both sonically and visually, have been lucid and visceral, with the camera always on her shoulder, a lens into her chaotic thoughts and deep feelings. Already nominated for two Ivor Novello's, winning the BRIT Rising Star in 2022 and coming runner up in BBC Sound Of 2021, Humberstone’s bear-all storytelling is the heart of her craft.

“Every time I sit down to write music, I have no idea what it’s going to sound like” says Samantha Poulter aka Logic1000. This understated approach has fared Poulter well so far in her career, with a string of pulse-raising, in-the-moment releases that sit just under-the-radar while rapidly gathering notoriety. Before all this Poulter was living in her native Melbourne and lacking in focus. “I would just dabble in different careers” she says, "I would potter around making music, which seemed to get a good response from my followers on SoundCloud”. It wasn’t long before this response caught the attention of local label Sumac who released her debut, self-titled EP. Finding her place in the world coincided with Poulter finding her place in music. Her debut EP steadily brought widespread acclaim with tracks being played round the world by DJ’s including Four Tet—who has gone onto support her throughout her career as a mentor and friend.

Mall Grab

Operating at a dangerously high frequency, Jordon Alexander aka Mall Grab is perpetually evolving, but always retaining one constant motif - raw energy.

Now based in London, he’s continued from strength to strength with diverse releases on his own label Looking For Trouble, running parties, working on new projects and music, all while keeping the axis spinning with the label he runs along with his 3 best friends, Steel City Dance Discs. A dynamic stage presence and DJ, MG specialises in a genre-transcending infectious energy that involves the whole crowd - It's the club in which Mall Grab does the realest damage, favouring predominately unreleased strictly-for-the-floor MG material. Best arrive ready.

With a family ancestry that traces itself through East Africa and India, specifically Goa, as well as Scotland and England, Aaron Jerome “grew up on a farm in rural England.” Moving to London at 18, he distributed tracks on a smattering of labels. Releases across Good Looking Records and BBE sat alongside “a stack of remixes” before the world was introduced to SBTRKT.  Releasing his first album, ‘SBTRKT’, in 2011, it grew to be a seminal project which garnered global critical acclaim and commercial success. This is now a new era for the British producer though, and it cannot begin without acknowledging the masked identity. New album ‘The Rat Road’ is a sonic ride reflecting on the societal changes in the six years SBTRKT has been creating it, and also a personal reflection of his journey through his life. The album wears its emotions openly as SBTRKT takes the listener on a journey through euphoria and melancholia.
