LUSH PUPPY

What happens if you put an audiotist and a pie-loving hazard to society together? Well, you get a Lush Puppy. What is Lush Puppy you ask? It's a mix between electronica, kickass beats, punk guitar riffs and a vocalist who raps like a little demon and sings like an angel. Highly contradictory but ain't that when the real flavors come out? Forget the served on a platter, the manners. Just take it in.

JUNGLE BOY

Emerging from the hip south west London scene, Jungle Boy brings influences from classical piano, electronica and contemporary R&B together to create a truly distinctive sound. Jungle Boy mixes genres and instruments atypically and strives to push the limitations of his instruments and sound.

The surprise breakout band of the last decade, the apostles of Electro Swing and precursors of a laidback yet terribly upbeat trend. Caravan Palace is the result of the cross of 4 electronic music composers, with a common passion for "jazz manouche". By practising that 30's music in a "classic" band, they realize its great impact.

Sweetwood is a brand-new project of Amsterdam based writers/producers collective Voice Calling Radio. Sweetwood celebrates feelgood music of the last 40 years by releasing tracks based on the sound of music from past and present. This sound does not restrict itself to one genre but may originate from rock, pop, hip hop, funk or dance music. Although all tracks are original compositions, Sweetwood's influences are clearly audible. The promise is to make the listener feel good by paying homage to a vast array of fantastic writers, producers, composers and artists from the past. 

JESSE HITE

He began writing songs at an early age, yet this is the first time he has released his own music into the world.

Darren Hart, known as Harts, is a musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer and music producer from Melbourne.

A positive attitude can get Fish Fox far

Coming home is the TCBYML debut for producer and singer-songwriter Fish Fox from New York. His infectious electronic dance music with elements of Deep House and Tropical House comes from his humble home studio - he sings all vocals, plays all keys and his guitar "Marcus".

Puggy have been exploring the multifaceted nature of pop ever since they started out more than ten years ago. The Belgian trio have always refused to look at life in black and white, and set off each time to map lands that lie far beyond the official borders of the genre.

The group - formed of Esa Mankinen (vocals/guitar), Marko Heikkinen (lead guitar), Jyri Pesonen (Bass/vocals) and Olli-Pekka Ervasti (drums) - have generated a reputation for creating powerful indie pop.

A modern take on blue eyed soul, the tracks feature elements of classic Motown and Stax Volt compositions with influences from dubstep, 90's rap, and contemporary electronica. 

Slydigs are a Rock & Roll four piece from the North West of England that pride themselves on bringing a fierce modern edge to a classic Rock n Roll sound, earning them an ever growing loyal fan base from across the globe.

CERTAIN ANIMALS

Rotterdam based trio Certain Animals serves you melodic rock filled with vocal harmonies. The members aren't afraid to show what records they've been listening to. Musical giants from the 60's and 70's are spinning on a daily basis on their turntable. The Beatles, Beach Boys, Neil Young, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Electric Light Orchestra are regular companions in their musical life, but also the fuzzy and phasey sounds of contemporary bands like Tame Impala influence the music of Certain Animals.
Without being stuck in the past and with a critical view on the present, the band brings you their intriguing sound which makes for an energetic live show filled with intimate moments and explosive bursts of energy.

P.S. November is a nu-r&b talent and college student majoring in Japanese from Provo, Utah, USA. He has been playing piano, making music, and singing ever since he was a little kid. Most of his songs are inspired by his experiences with relationships and heartache; others communicate messages of depression and nostalgia. With an indie work ethic and a singular voice combined with layers of catchy pop sensibilites or sometimes just a piano, he creates a memorable brand of music. P.S. November can move you to the heights and depths of a feeling, performing a balancing act of beauty and bravery on a tightrope suspended between hope and despair.

CHATEAU CHATEAU

Chateau Chateau was birthed from the desert flora and jagged hills of Tucson, Arizona in the beginning of 2018. The formation of the seven band members began in the cold, dark caverns of an aerospace hanger with nothing but an audience of semi-casual and passerby drunkards making their way to the next door brewhouse. In the following months of springtime the band began forming their sound. What was once a loose, rocky, garage-pop four-piece would eventually become a blooming, bouncy, glittery troupe of seven with an equally tightened and raw sound. 

The distinguished gentlemen of The Hengles have more than earned their musical spurs in the past. The guys from Amsterdam Erwin Wolters, Maarten Heijblok, Paul van Rijswijk and Dirk Portegies played in illustrious 80s and 90s bands like Fatal Flowers, Treble Spankers, Supersub and Jack Of Hearts.

Bare Jams are an upbeat, fun lovin' collective. Self described as 'Poppy-Funk with a sneaky bit of Reggae and Ska'. Their fun rhythms involve catchy lyrics about twists on day-to-day life, parties, their pet gnome and the Hokey-Cokey sometimes even some politics and other meaningful stuff. They'll have you chillin', then get you skankin', even put a smile on your face. Organic and freshly brewed party vibes, which really shouldn't be missed.

KAKKMADDAFAKKA's gansta-broadway-disco sound is some what left field of today's musical trends. Not sticking to one genre is something which the band hold as one of their key values, they simply make music they like, and music that moves crowds.

Through the ages men aren't men and money isn't money anymore. Pop music is getting more terrible each year and computers will take over the world. Dutch garage-rock duo Money & The Man consisting of Henk Wesselink and Ymte Koekkoek is the latest remedy for these complaints.

Born and raised in the coastal town of Bournemouth, UK, Charlie Hole’s story began when he heard Damien Rice’s ‘O’ at the tender age of 14. From that first listen, his desire to reach the same emotional depths became clear; realising his ability to create emotive and fearless tracks, learning and evolving throughout.

The Moody electropop of Rembrandtpark.

The refreshing sound of Single Pilot

MARLE THOMSON

Warm, edgy, colorful, quirky and above all musical: Marle Thomson sings, touches, surprises and stands out with her music, in which space and time merge into an own universe full of beats, loops, guitar, keys, and vocals. Her voice and songs contain a deep layering, and form a mix of strength and fragility.

Bony Macaroni are making self-loathing cool again. At least, they hope so. Because, after previous failed attempts at life in general, these dudes want to give a fuck again. Their moderately heart-wrenching and semi-catchy debut-ep will hit the digital shelves early 2019. 

The music of Eckhardt And The House can be best 

described as vintage pop but is as of 2018 developing towards a more uptempo and danceable indie sound. The band has been taking elements from pop to avant-garde to disco-funk and twisted it all up into a signature sound with wild experimentation and disregard for the norm.

Phonettes is the project around the songs of Amsterdam based singer-songwriter and filmcomposer Daan Hofman. The songs of Phonettes are shaped by Minimalistic beats with dreamy vocal choirs, pickin’ guitars and warm analog synthsounds, even flirting with lay back techno, but preserving the song as its beating heart.

“I’m color, I’m black & white, I’m Everything. I’m Not.Your.Regular.Boy. I don’t wanna identify myself as a man or a woman but as a human, as Not.Your.Regular.Boy. I don’t try to be labeled."

​Not.Your.Regular.Boy. is Ferry de Ruiter from Amsterdam. When he was only 5 years old, his father started to dissect the arrangements of the music they were listening to and make him aware of all the instruments. His inspiration became older music from the 60s to the 90s. From The Beatles to Blondie and from Culture Club to Queen. Participating in The Voice Of Holland he found himself the first person worldwide ever in this show to appear in full drag.

A name that creates as many questions as expectations, and the men of Fake Billy & The False Prophets want to keep it like that. Raw energy and catchy hooks. When their first performance at half past 5 in the night ended with blood lying next to the toilet and the sweat was dripping down the walls, there was no way back.

Nachtschade - Dutch for Nightshade - is guaranteed firework. On the colourful debut albumMaskerade  we hear sleazy and oldschool Surf'n Roll, psychedelic rock, funk and blues.

The Night Ships is a Dutch-Australian duo living and performing in The Netherlands. Their songs have been formed during travels to far-flung corners of the globe, from Namibia, to Iran, to Cambodia, with instruments found on the road. The result is an international project without equal, one that has a story to go with every song - an eclectic mix of trip-hop and folk, spun across moody electro-pop soundscapes. Reviewers have made comparisons to Portishead, Chelsea Wolfe and Ane Brun. Ingrid's vocal lines are heavily influenced by folk while Rob's modern productions float on his melodic bass lines and an atmospheric groove.
