- UNICORN KID -
Signed to Ministry of Sound (UK) and Ultra (USA) ‘Unicorn Kid’ is a musician who has helped to define a generation with his chiptune infused pop. But determined to avoid any of the clichés that making dance music implies, Unicorn Kid’s aim it to infuse his gamewave, chiptune bleeps and blips with a classic music writing style to make big pop tunes. The end result is massive stadium anthems with rousing choruses that are both uncategorisable and also make for an exciting new sound. Having already remixed the likes of Pet Shop Boys and Gorillaz, Unicorn Kid is currently writing his debut album due for release late 2011.

- JENSEN SPORTAG (DJ SET) -
Nashville's Jensen Sportag create the type of R&B-brushed electro that feels plucked from your uncle's Detroit living room in '89 and presented in the same tortoiseshell case it originally came in – smooth music, contemporary as it is timeless. On Pure Wet, the boys of Jensen Sportag remind us that we can be vulnerable without being overexposed.
'Pure Wet' opens the EP with gauzy production, breathy vocals and a staccato pulse. At points the track is autoerotic, at other points claustrophobic. 'Mapquest' is a nighttime car drive that starts downtown, amidst big city lights, and ends on a country road, miles away from the small apartment you call home. In its perfection, single 'Everything Good' is an unattainable 1950's date night, and 'Jareaux', an empty love story that sees its protagonist committed to something he doesn't really believe in.
Pure Wet is a thoughtful release, steeped in timeless grooves and déjà vu.
