Live Bands and Electro Swing DJs
LIVE MUSIC FROM
Rasta4Eyes are a collective of musicians from Merseyside & Greater Manchester who combine a powerful dub reggae backdrop with a brass section, mean sax solos and socio-political lyrics delivered with passion. The live show contains melodica, harmonica, sweet vocal harmonies, and stunning live brass all glued together by a solid rhythm section. Rasta4Eyes are leaving behind the ska-punk mayhem of of their formative years, as their sound evolves and matures into conscious, disciplined, focussed dub-reggae music.
★Age of Glass★
Live Electronic Rave Dub Funk Punk Explosion! The Age of Glass pluck at the abundance of styles that rocked the world of music, and blend them up in a whirlwind of contemporary modulation. Like a crazed bug, they will crawl inside your ears nibbling at your brain and digesting it into an aural soup, the like of which has never been tasted or heard before.
DJ set from...
Voted in the international Electro Swing awards as 'Best Electro Swing DJ Live Act 2012,' Wolfie serves his sounds fresh spinning virtually all styles of EDM around a kindred swing theme.

The nu-skool UK', Wolfie crosses the Pennines from Leeds to give us a taste of Leeds madness.
