FLASH CASSETTE
Flash Cassette harness elements of boogie funk, 80s arcade games, and modern funk, to create driving songs full of classic-sounding synth hooks and playful melodies.

Adam Hunte and David Kaer hail from Bradford and use synthesizers and live drums to create a familiar yet forward thinking, dancefloor-ready sound.

VIDE0
Back to basics pop duo VIDE0 comprises song writing partners Alex Brown and Emily Garner, previously of bands Bathymetry and Prowles. Operating in Salford, the pair's direct, uptempo, fun pop music may come as a surprise given the more whimsical guitar-focused sound of their previous band.

In reality it's a logical progression to a more immediate, fully formed sound, expressed for the most part through sparkling synths and riff-heavy bass, accompanied by machine programmed beats and dual vocal melodies. Comparisons to New Order may appear lazy, but there's a definite link here to the city's lineage of bass-driven synth pop and post-punk.

G_P
The artist formerly known as Game_Program, aka multi-instrumentalist and member of Hookworms, Cowtown, and Nope, Jon Nash.

Recent performances have shown a tasteful refining of ideas incorporating lo-fi, lo-slung house grooves, arpeggiated synth lines designed to hypnotise, and classic drum machine sounds. Altogether it's a sound not dissimilar to artists such as Warp's Clark and Argentinian DJ / producer Leonel Castillo, though it's an arguably more soulful listening experience.
