Melanie Ó Dubhshláine

In a fifteen-year musical career, Melanie Ó Dubhshláine has performed and composed music based in the noise, electronic, experimental and psychedelic rock genres.

Her solo work takes the form of two projects. Ocelocelot is concerned with using vibrations and waveforms from found sound to create undulating soundscapes, whilst Melanie Ó Dubhshláine focuses more on electronic composition. Her background in visual arts leads her to introduce visual elements into her performances. An overriding theme of her work is using unusual instrumentation to extend human expressive capabilities and give voice to previously unheard sounds.

Ashtray Navigations have curated multimedia events at Leeds International Film Festival and Glasgow International Arts Festival.

"Tall Talker are an instrumental experimental rock band sometimes labelled “math” or “prog”. Fusing influences of jazz and funk to create a unique blend of groove driven melodic complexity while remaining accessible and danceable. The band formed in 2014 but only just released their first EP preferring to hone their live sound supporting bands such as TTNG, And So I Watch You From Afar and Three Trapped Tigers. BBC6 Radio's Tom Robinson commented 'you couldn't fit a rizla paper between them' when describing the bands tight complex sound.

Evolving acid bass and meticulously programmed drums are two main features of Leeds based Acid Techno/IDM producer, 'moi_6',but beneath that is a hidden layer of beauty, pushing what technology both old and new can do to create some of the weirdest music heard to date."You need to get past the ‘well this guy clearly knows his way round a sequencer and a drum machine’ and just think of this as music, and although you could dance to this, to think of it as music that you can actually sit and listen to as well."

Moegli

MOEGLI is quickly gaining a reputation among his peers as one of the most technically adept producers in the game right now. His filthy suede lined productions range from wonky Hip-hop, dirt tinged bass lines to emotionally charged future garage cuts transcending the normal boundaries producers set on themselves to create an identifiable and unique sound. Performed alongside some of electronic music's modern staples such as Brainfeeder's Lapalux & Teebs, expect a constant flow of funky rhythms, groove and bass; lots of bass.
