MY BABY GOES BACK TO “PREHISTORIC ROOTS”
It hasn’t taken long for Amsterdam based psychedelic, shamanic trio MY BABY’s swampy blues and funk-inflected sound to cast a formidable spell, taking the world by storm.
Over the past 3 years, Dutch brother-sister-duo Sheik (drums) and Cato van Dyck (vocals) and New Zealand guitarist Daniel “daFreez” Johnston have had their mojo working overtime and are now ready for the release of their third album “Prehistoric Rhythm”. With their new album, the band aim to channel a primal awareness amidst hypnotic beats, shimmering soulful vocals and psychedelic riffs on the back of rootsy blues and dubbed out funk.
A 14 piece big band fusing heavy UK bass with Jazz. High octane energy live shows fronted by Grime and Hip Hop MCs. This band are carving a path to popular success and they’re taking no prisoners.
Have you ever heard Duke Ellington's “Caravan” performed as a huge Garage banger? Or a 12 bar Blues manipulated into a Half time DnB/Carnival anthem? Or a New Orleans funeral song turned into a whisky soaked mid tempo Breaks dancefloor destroyer? We know you haven’t because there’s only one band in the entire world like these guys!

UK South West based band Echo Town consists of free spirited brothers Richard and Robert Harrison. They are recognised for their vibrant and energetic performances, contemporary freedom songs and use of multi instruments such as lap-slide guitar, djembe, didgeridoo and harmonica.
Originally playing music of the heavy rock genre in their earlier years, the Leeds born duo moved on to develop a more harmonious and spiritual approach to music in the past five years as they creatively matured and grew into the upbeat band we know them as today. They relocated to Cornwall in early 2015 after completing a mini tour late summer 2014. After they received an overwhelmingly positive response from the South West music scene they opted for the vibrant and contrasting lifestyle change of the South which had always appealed to them. They quickly gained attention from booking agents and radio shows as well as the diverse festival scene.
