Elysia Crampton's eclectic and unrestrained electronic music is the flashpoint of a myriad influences. Underscored by radical and queer politics, Crampton’s experimental work gives sonorous form to contemporary expressions of Aymara resistance and survival.

Coby Sey is a London-based vocalist, musician and DJ who has developed a distinctive presence as a performer and producer offering a shifting, disorienting vision of club music. A long-time collaborator with Mica Levi, Tirzah, Babyfather, Klein and Kwes, Coby’s recorded work spans the realms of live instrumentation, sample-based productions and experimental music, melding recognisable motifs of hip hop, drone, jazz, grime and more into a dubbed-out anaesthesia.

Laurie Tompkins writes and performs playful, erratic music for instruments and electronics, as well as co-directing experimental imprint Slip with Tom Rose and Susie Whaites, where he has independently championed a burgeoning generation of fringe artists working with sound both in the UK and further afield.

Oliver Coates is a cellist, composer and producer based in London. He was the winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist Award 2011 and is an Artist in Residence at the Southbank Centre. Coates recently released a solo record, Upstepping, on PRAH Recordings, and a collaborative record, Remain Calm, with Mica Levi on Slip.
