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.

Kasai Masai

Audiences find themselves on their feet, moving toward the dance floor with an uncontrollable shaking of their hips…..

WARA

The multicultural vibe that makes London so unique is abundantly present in their sound.
