Detroit Swindle – The Dutch duo put out most of their music through their own label Heist Recordings and have quickly gained popularity through their early releases like “The Wrap around”, and “The Break up”. Their more recent output sees them explore the broader corners of electronic music with the dreamy “Tamarindus Hollandicus”, and the sample-heavy “Just not Norma”. They’ve collaborated with and done remixes for artists like Tom Misch, Kerri Chandler, Mayer Hawthorne, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Hercules & Love Affair and Seven Davis Jr.

As avid record collectors of both old and new music, their DJ style is as varied as their taste in music. Rather not limiting themselves to a certain sound, Detroit Swindle will play just about anything. So whether it’s classic house, obscure disco, African funk or any other genre from across the globe: if it puts a smile on your face, they’ll play it.

Jank Setup – a group of diverse artists who converged to form an innovative high-energy 8 piece band. Each member comes from a differing musical and cultural background and adds a different flavor to the music.

The progressive group presents Soulful vocals supported by Funk instrumentation fused with a full horn section. Founded in New Orleans in 2017, they are greatly inspired by classic and modern Soul, Funk, Jazz, and Hip Hop artists including James Brown, Parliament, and Fela Kuti, and more recently, Anderson Paak, Vulfpeck, and Tom Misch.

The dynamic and high-spirited performance style of the band continues to cultivate an ever-growing and equally enthusiastic fan base.
