Led by trumpeter Laura Jurd, Mercury-nominated Edition Records signed band Dinosaur return with their highly anticipated second album ‘Wonder Trail’. The new album sees the band further their exploration into the world of ‘synth-pop meets jazz band’, presenting a journey of mesmerising new compositions.
Garth Cartwright is a New Zealand born, South London based award winning writer, broadcaster, DJ and music promoter. He particularly engages with and unearths the great American roots and East European Romany musicians who are too often overlooked outside of their own areas.
Founded by Isaiah Barr, Ninja Tune signees Onyx Collective are a growing collective of artists and musicians based in New York with some major collaborations under their belt, including with Dev Hynes and streetwear brand Supreme. The cast of performers for this elusive group is interchangeable, as is the kind of music that they play, including salsa, funk and the band’s unique style of jazz.
