Jakob Ogawa

03.10.18

20-year-old Jakob Ogawa hails from Oslo, Norway. The Norwegian has plenty of soul and love in his music, and it is a drowsy, luscious and off-kilter sound.
Ogawa writes his own material and records everything himself.
This year he follows up with even greater tunes.

Afrikan Boy

10.10.18

It’s not often that you’d expect to find the bass-heavy sounds of urban London and the rhythmic beats of Nigeria sitting together on a track, but if there is one MC who’s not shying away from doing exactly that, then look no further than Afrikan Boy. Born Olushola Ajose in southeast London to Nigerian parents, it’s not hard to spot the impact his Nigerian heritage and British upbringing have had. Fusing together his passion for grime, rap and afrobeat with a love for a good hook, Afrikan Boy is steadily carving out his own niche in the MC circle.

BOOGARINS

02.11.18

Boogarins, a band from Goiânia, Brazil, with members barely into their 20s, are working an indirect angle on an old and grandiose idea. They’re making psychedelic pop, with steady and even drum grooves, guitars playing melodic repetitions through clouds of reverb, and hazy, slow-release, enlightened-sounding vocals.

Fabio & Grooverider

03.11.18

Fabio and Grooverider, the Godfathers of Drum & Bass and legends of modern music who are idolised worldwide. Industry heavyweights, fans and artists regardless of genre will readily respect and praise the ongoing influence of the two.

Since aligning professionally 25 years ago, Fabio & Grooverider have been at the forefront of a genre which just seems to get stronger and more ‘global’ year on year, with household names such as Chase & Status, Sigma and DJ Fresh smashing the top 40 to pieces. These are just a few names that received their initial exposure from the pair.

Join these two legends of Drum & Bass in our arch in August!
