Welcome to the Future; an age where machines make everything simple, a time when mankind need not exercise skill nor original thinking when a computer can do the job instead. This philosophy applies to so many aspects of life, perhaps none more so than dance music.

When pre-sets, sample packed and templates prevail, where is there room for expression, for attitude, for danger?

Thank your lucky dancing shoes for artists such as dOP; three vibrant personalities with the musical abilities to express themselves in the most unique and human of ways. dOP bring their live show to enchant and transport you to another plane. Accompanied by two of the most forward thinking acts of today Jimmy Edgar and Sepalcure this is a night not to be missed.

dOP have known each other and shared their passion for music with each other for over 20 years. Three guys from classical music backgrounds, exploring and experimenting with jazz, hip hop and reggae before discovering electronic music. Once they discovered this new creative outlet they started immediately composing electronic music in their own style. From this dOP was born and soon Circus Company representation soon followed.

dOP utilise the same process for making organic dance music as they did classical fashion by composing with real instruments and voice. They have an appetite for collecting instruments such as flutes, horns, percussions, glockenspiel, saxophones and are passionate about using music to speak about experiences, moments, past or future – dOP is always trying to send a message. dOP regularly work in collaboration with artists Noze, Aquarius Heaven, Catz
n’ Dogz, Dave Aju, Guy Gerber and  DJ Koze to name a few.

Jimmy Edgar lover, fighter, prophet, freak magnet, time-traveller, musician, photographer and designer. Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity, Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown’s DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music.

Essentially what Edgar does very well is make your body move. Most of the time he does it alone, but there has been no shortage of willing partners. Deeply inspired by Michael Jackson and incapable of standing still for very long himself the ever-restless Edgar is eager to take his musical peep show on tour this year.

Sepalcure’s combination of love for bass and 90s house a Capella’s is the culmination of a cathartic two week collaboration between Travis Stewart (Machinedrum) and Praveen Sharma (Praveen). Their mix of tribal dub, house and two step beats works equally well for both late nights in the club and rainy, introspective nights at home. Detroit techno chords cut through wooden beats, neon synths and dubbed out atmospherics.
