Instra:mental ‎– Watching You
Few artists have had such an immediate impact on drum and bass in recent years as Instra:mental, the highly acclaimed duo of Boddika and Jon Convex. Since their early releases on Soul:r and Darkestral, the pair have been steadily building momentum with a number of influential singles across labels such Exit and Naked Lunch and developing a diverse and unique sound that crosses a range of styles and tempos. Instra:mental have so far forged successful studio partnerships with the likes of Jonny L, Skream, Burial and most notably dBridge, with whom they have hosted the Autonomic podcast series.
Nominated for “Best Breakthrough Producers” in DJ Magazine’s Best of British awards in 2009, this accolade only tells half the story. The duo has seen the launch of their label NonPlus+, the start of residencies for Fabric and Rinse FM and a whole host of international appearances including festivals in Croatia and Sardinia plus a tour of Japan.

Bob, Patti and the Backdoor Crew

Andy White – Bob, Patti and the Backdoor Crew
Andy White, from up the North of Ireland, friend of Tim Finn and Liam O’Maonlai (ALT) among others and erstwhile Melburnian. Long time running with a varied musical taste.

Teenage (1996) probably the most accessible album. His first Rave on Andy White (1986) created attention for this fiery post-punk poet/folk singer from Belfast. ‘Himself’ broadened his appeal and Andy started to tour Europe, leading to ‘Out There’ (1992) which won awards in Ireland.

Andy White – Biography

Singer-songwriter Andy White carries a 12-string guitar under his arm and wears his particular brand of Irish charm on his sleeve. With the political edge of Billy Bragg, the romance of David Gray and the Celtic lyricism of the Waterboys, Andy is a fully paid up ‘21st Century Troubadour’ (and that’s also the title of his second book, recently published in Ireland to rave reviews).

Belfast born and raised, White has earned a global following for blending folk and pop stylings with a poet’s sensibility. Working with the great names of Irish music – Sinead O’Connor, Van Morrison – and writing with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Neil and Tim Finn, Andy has won Ireland’s top songwriting awards and toured the world many times over.

Andy’s latest release ‘Songwriter’ is his tenth studio album. Released on Floating World in Europe and slated for release by Judy Collins’ Wildflower Records in North America, it was recorded in Vancouver with members of the Be Good Tanyas, Neko Case’s band, and features special guests Allison Russell from Po’ Girl on vocals and Radoslav Lorkovic on piano.

As well as touring ‘Songwriter’ and his second book ‘21st Century Troubadour’ (Lagan Press), Andy is preparing for the release of the eponymous debut album from Fearing & White, his collaboration with Canadian singer-songwriter Stephen Fearing.
