Garth Cartwright

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.

Onyx Collective

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.
