Line Up

Introspective
Strangeload

Floral Schoppe is a psychedelic rock band based in London.

Their focus is to create sonically and visually stimulating live experiences. They do this by writing music that juxtaposes heavy punk and rock influences with more mellow and delicate genres such as jazz and latin, often several times within a song. Additionally, they have put a great focus on our costumes during live performances, creating characterised alter egos for performance accompanied with distinct, colourful clothing and body paints.

They’ll put on a show that you will remember.

Inspiring you with weirdness, breaking the barrier between them and audience.

Crooked State

Bohemian Indie-Rock band The Valla formed in December 2018. Native of nowhere, the four-piece emanate from England, Wales, Australia, and Germany, but currently reside in London, UK. Holding the line between Pop and rock, inspired by the likes of Cage The Elephant, Gang of Youths, and Catfish and the Bottlemen, the band plays what they describe as ‘music for damaged souls’, writing with beautiful insecurity and vulnerability, appealing to anyone searching for a deeper meaning of life in the modern world.

The band released their debut single There For You in June 2019 with raging success, and followed with heartbreaker single Anymore, both of which are from their upcoming, highly anticipated EP. Both tracks have been produced by acclaimed London producer Andy Hall Hall who has worked with artists such as Bastille, Rag'n'Bone Man and The Wombats. After its release, There For You was featured as ‘track of the day' on ‘Rock n’roll and other sounds’ and the ‘find a song blog’, and went on to strike a chord with The Valla’s growing fanbase, sparking a wide range of online acoustic covers of the song. Having begun their career by performing a number of gigs and house concerts to build a small devoted fanbase, The Valla has recently headlined big venues such as Tooting Tram and Social in London, and have a number of gigs lined up over the next few months to promote their upcoming EP release

Distinctive South East London rapper D-Kel presents his new alternative, energetic and emotive new EP ‘Genuine’. The unique hybrid of Ska, Dub, Indie Rock and Rap combines perfectly to form an innovative, exciting, fresh new sound destined stand out from the crowd.

Drawing inspiration from Artists such as Smiley Culture, London Posse (Rodney P), The Beat, The Specials, Jamie T, The Streets & Plan B (Stricklands Bank).

“I didn’t set out to make a song which follows a certain formula, I’m becoming more open and experimental with my music which I believe has a positive impact on the quality, some people might call it indie-rap or Ska-Hop, to me its just music influenced by what I like”

The EP certainly does have a feeling of something classic, somewhat vintage but yet refreshing and original, an strong British representation is featured throughout the EP, whilst the EP is varied, there is a consistent sound flowing throughout the tracks which have been carefully produced by D-Kel’s long term producer team ‘Insynthesia’
