Since bursting onto the scene with their multi award-winning compilation “The Stanton Sessions” back in 2001, the Stanton Warriors’ irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties over the past thirteen years; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man and Ultra, selling out global tours and topping DJ lists along the way.
In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark, uncategorisable sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Records, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA and Gorillaz. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity has ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant; obstinately dancing to beat of their own drum and helping to pave the way for new talent.
Tradition is a tricky beast. There are those who would leave it as a dusty museum exhibit. Then there are others who see further, into the possibility of tradition, a line that runs through history all the way to the present. They're the ones who respect the past but aren't going to be hidebound by it, who make it a very vital part of now. People like Kuenta i Tambu, who've transformed the old tambu music of Curacao into the 21st-century phenomenon of Tambutronic.
Then meets now through hard kicks and hooky synths, the gritty good times that spawned bass music's tropical, global offshoots, from baile funk to moombahton. Taking up the sounds that evolved in Dutch clubs and mashing them effortlessly with the group's percussive, evocative Caribbean roots, Kuenta i Tambu proves how easily traditional grooves can move in new, unexpected ways.

Essex born folk songwriter ‘Beans on Toast’ is an extremely unique
performer. Twisting an age-old genre with a D.I.Y. approach and
contemporary concerns has earned him the title of a cult figure who
tells it like it is. A festival favourite (he’s played Glastonbury
every year since 2007) and a prolific writer and performer. He’s
written and recorded 11 albums and he’s played every bar, club, venue,
pub, festival, party and honky-tonk you can think of.
He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues. Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Love songs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honesty and quick wit.
Hard hitting, bass driven, vibrant, live electronic dance-pop. Both commercially charming and intriguingly eccentric this three-piece draws influences from anything with a pumping groove and amalgamates it into a live music frenzy of thumping electronic drums, heavy bass lines and gritty synth riffs. If Bjork and Joe Strummer had triplets then Age Of Glass would be the result.
Cutting their teeth playing for various other outfits the trio then co-created Manchester's infamous Space Cassette night (with Henge), proving that if you create something magical you can not only build a fanbase but a whole scene around it. Thanks to the two bands the club night continues to grow and Age of Glass continue to develop their live show to greater heights.
