The Hundred In The Hands

What? The Hundred In The Hands is composed of The Boggs’ Jason Friedman and touring band-mate Eleanore Everdell, they make the kind of hypnotic, tribal disco that you can dance long through the night to. Or as the band themselves put it “These are sound-system-backed, foot stomping, clap hands beats for akimbo-limbed boogie kids. Ballrooms and bar floors are built strong, it’s time to give them a pounding.” For Fans Of: Television, The Golden Filter, The Rapture. Continue reading

What? Lo Fi Fnk

Lo Fi Fnk (pronounced: LO-FI-FUNK) are a Swedish duo signed to Moshi Moshi, the label that has been a temporary home for the likes of Hot Chip, Architecture in Helsinki, Bloc Party and Friendly Fires over the years. They’ve been making music since their teens and now luckily they’re legally old enough to get into the clubs playing their music. Miss their glorious mix of skittering electronic bleeps, other-worldly-sounding vocals, and raw dance beats at your peril!
For Fans Of: Crystal Castles, Daft Punk, Cut Copy.

Support:

Casio Kids of Norway play gorgeous electro tinged indie dance jams with hypnotising pop melodies and vocal harmonies in both Norwegian and English. They’re influenced by an eclectic mix of afro-beat, techno and, like seemingly all Scandinavians (admittedly usually the Swedes), full on pop.
For Fans Of: Paul Simon, Cornelius, New Order.
