KOSMO SOUND (BELGIUM)

With a background in jazz, Kosmo Sound creates an exciting, danceable and eclectic universe with tight grooves, oriental sounds and spacy sound effects. Improvisations and expansive melodies take the listener on a trip through their cosmos. The sextet has toured the UK several times. That is where the inspiration for the full album Antenna in 2020 arose. The ultimate recognition came when their singles were mixed by dub legends Daniel Boyle and Alpha & Omega and when they played as the support act for Adrian Sherwood, The Twinkle Brothers and Omar Perry.

SEAS OF MIRTH

Seas of Mirth have been stamping their own mark on modern music for the last decade, mixing up styles and genres while also being known for their aquatic twist. Their sonic span comprises areas of psyche, dark funk, jazz, disco, latin and chime pop while comparisons have been made to the likes of Cardiacs, Stereolab, Talking Heads, Parliament, Animal Collective and Frank Zappa.

MR AND MRS WEDDERBURN (GW JAZZ)

The collectives Nihilism, Invariance, Brother’s Testament and Hypernova are but a few that have performed on the GW Jazz platform.
Gillian & Gordon sets largely parlay the now and next generation of musicians and producers and bring Jazz, electronica, dub, world, neo-soul, lo-fi, afrobeat, Brazilian and more together, combining their Jamaican livity and cosmopolitan London existence.
