The Very Best - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Very Best
Born out of the love of hip hop’s ethos to consistently push the boundaries forward by extrapolating what was unique about the past and what is radically refreshing about the future, Radioclit’s Etienne Tron and Johan Karlberg have teamed up with Malawian songsmith Esau Mwamwaya to form The Very Best, an epic global partnership with the sole aim to re write western pop rules in a language which is not English. Esau who moved to London 7 years ago ran into Etienne in the second hand furniture store he ran in Hackney, located on the same road as their production studio. After regular chats about the state of global music the French/Swedish DJ/Production duo decided to invite Esau into the studio to lay down some betas, what was born out of fun and a mutual love of rhythm became something far grander.
Grandchildren - (Set time: 9:15 PM)

Grandchildren is an orchestral pop band from Philadelphia. Originating as a recording project that fused folk songs with sampled beats, the band evolved into a small orchestra known for its high energy live performances featuring multi-instrumentalist swapping. Grandchildren released their debut album Everlasting in 2010 followed by their sophomore release Golden Age in 2013.
