OFF RECORDS : ANDRE CROM & MAT.JOE

READ MORE





Hit after hit after hit. That is the short summary of OFF Recordings.

The placement as #8 mostcharted label of 2012 on Resident Advisor and up to 10 tracks in the Beatport deephouse top 100 at once are proof to this fact.

The recipe behind this success is simple: OFF Recordings releases music to give people on the dancefloor a good time. The result is a unique brand of house music, rooted in the underground, but with a healthy dose of catchiness. OFF records come to us as part of their 5 years tour - ceelebrating 5 years of this forward thinking label.

This is going to be a night of massive tunes!

Second Wave Of Dot To Dot Acts Announced

READ MORE





DOT TO DOT SECOND LINE UP ANNOUNCEMENT:

Dot To Dot festival organisers have revealed the second wave of acts set to play the festival in 2014. Derbyshire grunge two-piece Drenge,  Macaulay Culkin’s parody band The Pizza Underground, and songwriting sensation Luke Sital-Singh are among the names announced today.

Dot To Dot takes its line up to three cities over three days (May 23rd-25th), touring London, Nottingham and Manchester, housing bands in  both Deaf Institute and Gorilla. Already Peace, The Midnight Beast, and Real Estate have been confirmed but now a swathe of acts are sure to whet the appetite of everyone anticipating the festival’s return.

2013 was a big year fro Drenge, whose self-titled debut was widely regarded by the music press as being one of the best albums of the year. Hotly-tipped solo-artist Luke Sital-Singh featured in the long-list BBC Sound of 2014 poll, and his debut album is due imminently. His recent singles ‘Fail For You’ and ‘Greatest Love’ have grown momentum for his full-length record, with plenty of 6 Music play.

Home Alone child star Macaulay Culkin’s tongue-in-cheek Velvet Underground tribute band – The Pizza Underground – have songs including ‘I’m Waiting for Delivery Man’, and ‘All The Pizza Parties’ among their repertoire.

Manchester band The Heartbreaks caused a stir with their debut album in 2012 and are now ready to do it all again with new record ‘We May Yet Stand A Chance’, produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers) this June.

Previous D2D line-ups have seen performances from The xx, Mumford and Sons, The Cribs, and many more.
