SOFT RIOT (UK / CA)
Soft Riot is a London based act consisting of one JJD (Jack Duckworth); a former Vancouverite who has clocked in around fifteen years of musical output in various bands. Drawing inspiration from synthesizer-based film soundtracks of yesteryear, drones, early EBM, minimal wave, a bit of synthpop and a heavy dose of throbbing appregiated rhythms, Soft Riot is a science-fiction heavy sound that narrates the listener through today's fractured, excessive landscape with hints of black humour.

LINEA ASPERA (UK)
Linea Aspera are a London based duo and have been the newest darlings of the international synth scene, soon releasing an EP on Dark Entries records (US).
NOI KABAT (UK)
The synthetic sound of the spiritual-punk-psychedelic soul. London art-rock ensemble NÅ‘i KabÃ¡t, oeuvre one of Euro-aesthete, Hapsburg Empire sliding into decadence, historical avant-gardes, constructivism, futurism, science fiction. Home-fashioned authenticity, music intent on artificiality, Goth inflected industrial pop. The band favour resourced analogue keyboards and electronic drum equipment such as the Simmons SDS kits, to create an authentic yet newly reconfigured sound. Their electronic repertoire harks to a new and obscured age, instrumentation and themes usually of ironic detachment, vocals acting as counterpoints to that artificiality.
A TERRIBLE SPLENDOUR (UK)
A Terrible Splendour are a duo consisting of MM Lyle and Martin Black who weave tales of blackmail and despair, of cruelty and of heartbreak.
Drawing from the Silver Screen, Romanticism and the New Wave, their sound is a darkly luxurious synthesised pop, fractured through the broken lens of a cursed Berlin.
This will be their London warm-up before jetting off to Serbia in July to play at the world-renowned Exit Festival in Novi Sad, featuring headline acts such as Duran Duran and Miss Kittin.
MILD PERIL (UK)
Mild Peril is the musical project of recognizable London DJ and electronic musician Chris Flatline. Having helmed such successful clubs such as Endurance and Future Brain, Chris' mastery of synthwork and knowledge of the last few decades of synth-based music come to the fore in this new venture. This is the debut show of Mild Peril!
