♫ Friendly Fire ♫
Midlands-born Reggae explosion
Friendly Fire Band has been one of the most active live reggae and dancehall outfits in the UK’s traditional reggae capital, Birmingham, both on stages and in the studio for the last few years. Composed of an international lineup of musicians, Friendly Fire Band comfortably juggles tradi- tional Roots, Dancehall or One Drop riddims, and has become an institution on the Birmingham Reggae Scene, having backed a host of artsits from Dawn Penn to Daddy Freddy, and put out regular releases on the Friendly Fire Music label.
In the studio, they have recorded collborations with the cream of UK reggae artists, released on vinyl as well as digital formats on the Friendly Fire Music imprint. Collaborating with aritsts such as YT, Tippa Irie, Murray Man, and Susan Cadogan, to name a few, they have enjoyed radio and soundsystem plays around the world including David Rodigan (BBC 1Xtra) who has featured successive releases on his show.
♫ UK:ID ♫
Dance/Rock powerhouse from Glastonbury, UK
Layering crunchy guitars and liquid synths with dynamic rap vocals and the stunningly soulful voice of Ella Harris, UK:ID are a Dance/Rock powerhouse from Glastonbury, UK. Their unique style is a fusion of Electronic Rock, Drum & Bass and Hip Hop.
UK:ID were formed 3 years ago at Stafford University, where brothers KJ (bass) and Ben-Jah (front man) studied music, film and video production. Joined by Glenn on guitar and Joey on drums, and more recently Ella on featured vocals, they now boast several storming EPs and videos. They have played well in excess of 100 gigs up and down the country, particularly in the midlands and the south, have an extensive social media following and have gained excellent reviews and premieres on some of the industry’s most notable music blogs. They are also being supported by BBC Introducing in the West and a 500,000-impression promotion is currently running on Vevo.
UK:ID are currently on tour promoting their debut album ‘Freedom Of Speech’.
“Blistering, high energy, drum and bass meets rock … a truly infectious set of tunes and lyrics that speak to a generation.” Louder Than War.
“A dancefloor-ready drum & bass anthem that announces the group to the UK scene with a bang.”Gigslutz.
♫ The Vegetable Collective ♫
Catchy, a little deranged, and always AVVIN IT
With more firepower than a bazooka, The Vegetable Collective are a raucous quintuplet of North London warehouse-dwellers who combine SKA, PUNK, DUB & RAP to create a manic live show that is guaranteed to blow your limbs apart. With regular live appearances across the London party scene, a South-West England tour and Boomtown Fair in the pipeline, The Vegetable Collective (and their pumped-up party posse) provide serious on-stage and on-floor wreckage for those who wanna SKANK! Their music is catchy, deranged, highly addictive and always AVVIN IT, certain to mash up the dance floor.
More Info: It’s a tough job being fresh in DSTRKT5 - the new district of Boomtown - because it’s a very, very dirty place but The ASBO Disco doesn’t seem to have much of a problem judging by the look of their banging new nightclub and their heavyweight garms.
When quizzed about the new nightclub in a recent interview with the Boomtown Gazette, ASBO Disco member Skellyman was quoted saying, “Dun know it’s all about the mad ting,” which can be loosely translated to “We bring the underground flavour for the raver”.
It’s big sounds, bright lights and badboy trainers, all up in your fat shitty face!
