Brilliant Additions to the Line-up!
Joining the programme: Andreya Triana, Torres, Låpsley, Oddisee, Saun & Starr, XOV, and many others.
“I want to write songs that are raw and honest”, says soul singer Andreya Triana from London, whose collaborations include Flying Lotus, Mr. Scruff, and Bonobo. With a vulnerable voice she reveals matters dear to her heart – and stirs the hearts of listeners.
By contrast singer Torres from Nashville has a voice full of power and rage. Her new album “Sprinter” is a compelling listen, with its intense rock songs and poetic lyrics.
Eighteen-year-old Brit Låpsley found success with the help of the good old radio: presenters from BBC Radio 1 could barely contain their excitement when they heard her first EP “Monday” – which she recorded in her bedroom!
Confident rapper ODDISEE is following different paths. Although he grew up in a wealthy part of Washington, D.C., he raps about inequality, poverty, and other social issues.
Almost 30 years ago, in 1986 to be exact, Saun & Starr met at an open mic night in Harlem. Now inseparable, they’re touring with their retro soul – and bringing it to Hamburg.
Landing a song on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack is not a bad way to start a pop career. XOV’s first EP sounds like an interesting mix of Robyn and James Blake – and has listeners hungering for more.
Also new to the line-up: Spidergawd, Oh Wonder, Jonas Alaska, Quiet Company, Agent Fresco, Leyya, Hein Cooper, Lady Lamb, Jamie Lawson, Femme, Tracer
Have a listen & be in the know!
