Pete Randy used to play in a garage rock band (remember The Strokes?), but the pleasures of working alone changed his songwriting. Simple things make him happy so he guesses he makes simple pop music too. Solo, hyper-melodic pop.
Pete Randy is a lover not a fighter. His music isn't gonna BLOW your mind but his music will be honest and from the heart.
He refers to diverse influences, from Kylie Minogue to The B52s to New Order over Army Of Lovers and The Strokes. Check out his diamond in the rough voice on Paris or his more breakable side on My Winter Song.

Den Haan is the end product of the collaboration between producer/songwriter Matthew Aldworth (aka Crème De Menthe) and DJ/Songwriter Andrew Gardiner. The band formed in summer 2006 after discovering a mutual love of Italo and Hi NRG.
After getting together for a one off party, they soon realised the endless possibilities of their creative partnership and since then have developed their own unique approach to experimental songwriting and audio/visual production.
As their popularity grows the group aspire to evolve into a multi member rhythmic love rumble but for the time being the cosmic foot tapping twosome are regularly exposing themselves as the prime evil dance formula ‘Gods From Outer Space’.
When you put us on it’s time to dance and you forget everything else. Escape from everything – JOIN US!

Matt Waites (aka Nightmoves) has already received widespread recognition for his ability to deliver the kind of set that makes those who love great dance music sit up and take notice (and hit the dancefloor). When most other DJs are bludgeoning the crowd with the same over-played bangers, Matt makes it his mission to weave together a melodic, danceable and, above all, fresh tapestry of rare disco, underground house and electro that has made him one of the rising stars of the scene.
Matt got his first break at Nottingham's legendary Liars Club night and quickly secured a fortnightly residency there. This paved the way for further sets at Bugged Out!, The End and Plastic People among others, as well as the opportunity to remix a then little-known band called Klaxons. The mix was quickly snapped up by Kitsune, providing Matt with his first 12" release, and was subsequently hammered by everyone from Erol Alkan to Simian Mobile Disco, earning recognition as one of Mixmag's top remixes of the year in 2006.
More remixes have since followed, for major label artists including Robbie Williams, Roisin Murphy, Ok Go, Friendly Fires, The Infadels, Alphabeat, Freeform Five, Metronomy & Late of the Pier. These remixes have been played and supported all over the world by DJs from Adam Freeland to Erol Alkan and some of Matt's all-time favourites, the Unabombers, In Flagranti, Tim Sweeney and the Glimmers.
Matt's DJ schedule has since taken him to international venues including Tape Club in Berlin, Distortion Festival in Copenhagen, Razzmatazz in Barcelona, and others in Moscow, California, Portugal & Australia. Back in the UK, Matt has played regular slots at Bugged Out! at The End, Fabric, Death Disco at The Arches, and Wax:On in Newcastle, Leeds and Brighton. Recent career highlights have included touring with Simian Mobile Disco as their support DJ and sets at Cocadisco, Glastonbury 2008 and the opening night of Matter, Fabric's new super club in The O2. Matt also recently joined the likes of James Murphy, Juan Maclean, and the whole DFA crew in recording a mix for Tim Sweeney's legendary NYC radio show, 'Beatsinspace'.

Jean Biche is a performance artist, graphic artist and musician who creates a unique theatrical universe of baroque and often disturbing images which challenge the viewer with unresolved questions of personal boundary and the significance of ritual.
His work specifically unseats rote notions of sacrifice, heartbreak and gender by combining pop references, legend and nostalgia in subversive an unexpected combinations, a process which has been said to resemble a medieval exorcism in its erasure of comfortable presumption and unforgettable enigmatic tableaux.
Jean Biche earned his Masters degree in Illustration at La Cambre in 2001, and takes inspiration in his work from such outsider artists as Leigh Bowery or Felix Gonzales-Torres.
Jean Biche has collaborated with Yves-Noël Genod, An Pierlé, Damien Jalet, Pierre Droulers, Laetitia Bica, Mademoiselle Jean, Dominique Thirion, and many more.
