”We make music using samples, we make samples using instruments”

Mixing, looping, & letting it out live Peak District will drift through your most sensitive parts like a massage from a dolphin. Drizzling you in bursting Manchester beats & melancholy undertones. Akin to being chased up the stairs by love.

Scratter Disco-Pighttp: http://www.thescratters.co.uk/

“The Scratters are, to your state of being, like fertiliser is to your flowers; they might smell nasty but they sure as shit make you dance in the wind! Expect sticky, grimy, enveloping melodies, super-blasting horns, explosive bad-ass beats, loveable, laughable lyrics and a full suite of tiger suits!”

Red barrio: http://www.myspace.com/redbarrio

Red Barrio is a collaboration of musicians from all 4 corners of the world. Originally formed by percussionist Arturo Aranguren & bass player Mark Hoyt they have grown into a soild 6 piece band. A tight riddim section is complimented by smooth keyboards from Christopher O’Neill & the creamy smooth sounds of Vince on Saxaphone. Either using guest singers, backing artists or just going instrumental. Red Barrio are rapidly becoming one of Manchester’s best loved dub-reggae outfits.
