DON AIR

BIOGRAPHY

Don Air are an unlikely trio of German chippies who met in the late 90’s on a building site in South London. They were destined to create the last release on the Stereo MC’s ill-fated label, the late Response Records.

Their album Carpenter’s Delight was a brilliantly off-beat gem. Due to label and distribution issues, the album disappeared almost as mysteriously as it appeared, only to be rediscovered and republished for fans by Freshly Squeezed.

12 STONE TODDLER

BIOGRAPHY

Back in 2007, 12 Stone Toddler were indisputably one of the most exciting and original bands to have come out of an already vibrant and buzzing music scene in Brighton; music capital of the UK’s South Coast. They were quickly identified as a group highly likely to break through by all those who heard them.

Not only were they a superb live outfit of virtuoso musicians with a strong stage presence, but they brandished an eclectic (even fearlessly) broad and original musical style. Their impeccable songwriting and wonderful delivery set them further apart still. No two songs sounded the same. There was no formula. Yet everything they touched had the same hallmark: quirky, original, dark, accomplished, beautiful, unique, funny, philosophical. They were genuinely loved by local press and fans alike.

Two superb albums – DOES IT SCARE YOU? (2007) and SCHEMING (2009) came out in quick succession. They consolidated the band’s cult following, achieved rapturous critical acclaim and amassed considerable support, but then, like something from one of their own songs, the band simply disappeared.

Until now that is…. 10 years on, 12 Stone Toddler are back! Now signed to Freshly Squeezed and with a new line-up including the founder members and songwriters Ben Jones and Chris Otero on Keyboards, Bass and Vocals respectively, they have played selected shows at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Bestival 2017, with a not-so-secret sell out show in their hometown of Brighton

JENOVA COLLECTIVE

BIOGRAPHY

The Jenova Collective is a 7-piece British dance band with electric stage presence and raucous energy.

These guys started playing together in 2014 after meeting at Leeds College of Music and have torn up high profile stages internationally ever since.

Jenova Collective’s electric combination of vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, funky bass, screeching sax, dirty synths & live drums all fronted by front woman LOUQ, creates something which could be described as Caravan Palace meets Hot Chip meets the Chemical Brothers with a heavy electro house/DnB twist.“

JEM STONE

BIOGRAPHY

Jem Stone’s unique take on any genre is compelling and highly individual. He made an impressive and memorable contribution to the early days of electro swing with the break-beat, dance-floor-filling flavors of his debut release on Freshly Squeezed, the Electric Circus EP (2010).
