The Ska Vengers

Reggae Roast

Combining the label, events and sound system they are spreading the conscious message in the music far and wide, whilst gaining a reputation as one of the key players in the new wave of British Reggae.

Saturday

Mango Rescue Team

Sheffield Carnival Rockers Mango Rescue Team combine world music and the avant-garde, and aims to link British psychedelic rock with Latin-American and African influences. The result is a high energy 10-piece band augmenting a standard rock set-up with horns, keyboards and extra percussion. They leap from Calypso to Funk, from 60s Rock to Merengue with flourishes of Flamenco, Samba, North African Rai and Central African rumba.

Matuki

Matuki are a 12 piece band who play west African music fused with urban funk. Their first live gigs were at Glastonbury Festival ’15, where they immediately won audiences over with sizzling horns, tuff bass-lines, interlocking guitars & soaring vocals. Led by master drummer and lead vocalist, Abraham Ebou, they play Festivals and anywhere big enough to hold 11 blisteringly good musicians. They’re based in Bristol, a city renowned for it’s multi cultural dance music.

The Hempolics

The Hempolics are out to put those organic rootsy vibes back into music; with their fat radio-friendly hooks, bumping soundsystem bass and a wanderlusty, ineffably real sound all of their own…Although the weather out might be dull London-side it’s strictly sunshine vibes, resplendent with huge hooks and festival-friendly choruses. These are tunes that people will be bopping to across festivals, clubs and car journeys for years to come.
