"sub-three minute slice of infectious noise punk made to be played at window-rattling, piss-off-the-neighbours volume" - Upset
"GLOO are one of the hottest prospects in the scene right now. The three-piece hailing from Littlehampton seem to have arrived with a bang, bringing with them huge tunes fuelled by angst and a frustration with the everyday mundanity of where they have come from." - Wave Byte

Ivan Dorn (UA)

Ivan Dorn: Its difficult to imagine the post-soviet pop scene without the controversial story of Ivan Dorn.

In 2011 the tall blond Ukrainian became an overnight sensation with his debut album ‘Co’n’Dorn’. His unique blend of 90s house, pop, nu-disco, funk and free jazz, came as a breath of fresh air to the suffocated Eastern Europe pop scene. The well-crafted compilation of catchy pop tunes brought the 23 year old into the spotlight. His fashion-forward style, controversial public appearances, fancy footwork and contagious personality caught on like wild fire. Within months Ivan Dorn and his band filled sports arenas around the country and he quickly earned a spot as a judge on The Voice Ukraine.

In 2014, just when it seemed like Ivan would follow the footsteps of most modern pop stars with radio-friendly hits and overproduced music videos, he dropped, “Randorn”, an album that would redefine him as an artist and bridge the gap between the underground and the mainstream. The masterpiece featured an odd selection of unique tracks sounding anywhere from Aphex Twins to Kavinski passing through Pharrell Williams. Although it was initially received with mixed feelings, the record quickly topped the charts and had audiences dancing from the VIP areas of the high society to the basements of the underground.

In 2016, Ivan started Masterskaya, an independent music label focused on bringing the exciting sound of Ukrainian underground to the main stage. Out of the blue, the 28 year old artist moved to Los Angeles to start recording his first English-language album, and quickly found himself inspired by the ocean breeze and palm trees. His US debut album is now on its way, and with feature a tight selection of tracks that, like Ivan, don’t follow the rules.

If there is one thing we’ve learned about Ivan over the years, is that if you think you have him all figured out, you are probably already one step behind.

Ivan Dorn  will be available   for The Netherlands,Belgium, France and the UK.

Contrass (NL)

Partying until the sun rises

Thomas Dits, also known as Contrass (before Mr. Memoir) is an dancehall/hiphop  recording artist.

Contrass was born in Groningen, has one sister and is of Dutch descent.
He was raised in a musical environment; his father is a jazz drummer, his mother teaches the saxophone and his stepfather, was Enrique Del Carmen ‘Choco’ Ramirez Quiros, who was a well-known latin percussionist in his birth country Costa Rica and son of José León Sánchez: an award- winning novelist. Best known for his works Isla de los hombres solos and Tenochtitlan.

He began to seriously pursue music in 2013 after he got more and more signals from his surroundings that he had something unique and had to do something with his passion. Over the years he mastered the Jamaican Patois by listening to dancehall music. This he has nurtured and refined to the sound that he brings today.
When meeting rapper, music producer and studio engineer Drico, they decided to experiment musically. After recording their first song, they decided that this was a collaboration to maintain and recorded Mr. Memoir’s debut album ‘The Turn‘.
After this, he got busy with further broadening his sound.
Nowadays he takes inspiration from the afro-beat/afro-bashment/afro- swing genre, which is, by origin, African and Caribbean music fused with grime and UK rap.

 

Contrass  will be available for The Netherlands,Belgium, Germany, France and the UK, and Jamaica.
