Wandering Monster
Since it’s inception in the autumn of 2014, Wandering Monster has honed a sound which demonstrates a combination of intricately arranged off-kilter grooves, in your face hooks and lengthy collective improvisation sections. Influences taken from the rhythmic complexity of modern jazz are juxtaposed with the intensity of classic blue note recordings.

Ancient Infinity Orchestra
Taking inspiration from Albert Ayler, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Sun Ra, John Cage, Don Cherry and everything else in the universe, the band's soul intention is to provide audiences with love and to emphasise that we should be focusing on the preservation of ALL life on Planet Earth.

Tip Toe
Tip Toe presents soulful earth music delivered in an artfully unassuming style. With captivating vocals interwoven over an electro-acoustic core, the band's music is an expression of the frequency shared between band, audience, music and life. They call it 'chamber funk, but they won't mind if you call it something else.

Ayana has travelled through space and time to bring you the songs of the spirits — drawing from the music of Mulatu Astatke and Sun Ra to conjure sounds of their own creation. Expect Spacial Rumblings and prepare to embrace the cosmos.
