Welcome to the merry world of one of the grandfathers of London's Disco Dub scene. Ray Mang is the disco dance party DJ alter ego of writer/producer Raj Gupta. The moniker was introduced as a vehicle for creating, releasing and spinning anything goes Disco-centric party music for collectors, dancers, enthusiasts and discockeys alike. Taking inspiration from the extended Disco mixes, Dub versions and edits of such luminaries as Larry Levan, Walter Gibbons, Daniele Baldelli, Began Cekic and Tom Moulton, and the open minded music policies of some of the pioneering early clubs such as the Paradise Garage, the Loft and the Italian Cosmic parties.
Futurecop! have been rocking stages across the world recently with their 80s inspired electro pop. Having created a sound influenced by 80s teen flicks, these guys do not care about being different or trying to be commercial. Recently things have started to progress rapidly for the band, having signed with Southern Fried Records and uber trendy iHEARTCOMIX record label.
Live performances and DJ sets have taken the guys across the globe with a 35 date tour across America and performance in Germany, Austria, France, Ireland and an Australia, as well as numerous gigs at the best venues across the UK.
Fresh from smashing it at Glastonbury, we welcome The Slips. As well as performing live across the UK, they have recently released a new single, Superbeat, with LA-based label IAMSOUND as part of their singles club alongside Little Boots, Florence and the Machine and The Black Ghosts.
They also have a huge back catalogue of remixes for the likes of Blur, Phoneix, CSS & La Roux to name just a few.
The live shows are not to be missed with their very own electro-disco sound, 8-bit retro visuals and Nintendo Wii controllers. Not to be missed!
