Music & Ents
Many people will already be aware of Jungle in their full band form: a central creative core of exceptional London-based producers, songwriters and frontmen J and T, who would expand to a thrilling seven piece band to perform live. Their one (eponymous) album to date was released in 2014 to huge acclaim - a mesmeric, future-facing, modern soul record that was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize while selling over 100,000 copies in the UK alone. At the same time, Jungle have built a parallel burgeoning career as exemplary DJs and impeccable curators. It’s a direction which has allowed J and T to explore a whole world of more club-focused sounds, showcasing a kaleidoscopic away of electronic influences while absorbing the wide eyed euphoria of the dancefloor. Initially building their name on the DJ scene by throwing a series of parties over the last two years with much respected London promoters Percolate, Jungle have since shared DJ line ups with a who’s who of contemporary club culture including Leon Vynehall, Ben UFO, Midland, Henry WU, Hot Chip and Young Marco. Meanwhile, the duo have released mixes for Giles Peterson and Solid Steel, and helmed an influential Spotify 'In Residence’ series to widespread acclaim.
The Exchange has been running for six years, and we can say with some certainty that we've never heard a story quite like Arthur Smith's. This could be because it doesn't even seem to make sense. He's an artist who's done so much but is known for so little of it—"Wait, you did that!?" is something he's used to hearing. This is why Smith feels his career has only just begun—despite making music since 1989. In 2016, he's mostly known as Artwork, the DJ behind Art's House, an event series with ties to London and Ibiza, and as one-third of Magnetic Man, his "dubstep super group" with Skream and Benga who achieved the genre's first mainstream success. But did you know he had a notable career as a techno artist back in the '90s? Or that he co-wrote one of UK garage's biggest hits? How about the fact he has reasonable claim to have invented dubstep? Or that he had a sideline writing remixes for some of the world's biggest pop stars? Smith is also a famous raconteur, a social media goofball, and a man who once had a Domino's pizza delivered to a train, so the anecdotes were flowing freely in this recent conversation with RA editor Ryan Keeling.
They sing of escapism, death and diving headfirst into relationships they know will destroy them. They make sumptuous, soulful rock music in a dour ex-munitions factory. They’re the fatalistic sound of the future. You are cordially invited to Palace, this generation’s most moving evolution in alt-rock.
Denis Sulta has rapidly emerged as one of the most exciting new prospects from the ever-fertile Glasgow scene. His unique sound has been carefully crafted having earned his stripes and a large part of his musical education and knowledge through working at the internationally renowned Rubadub record store, whilst holding down regular and ongoing sets at the world famous Sub Club.
Having honed his craft under the guidance of some of the most respected local selectors, DJs and producers, Denis Sulta has garnered multiple releases with his early signing to Dixon Avenue Basement Jams in 2014. Since then he has showed his dominating abilities within the electronic music industry noted by his opulent and punchy releases on Numbers and most recently his own imprint, Sulta Selects.
Sulta’s meticulous and diverse approach to dance music has seen his stand out capabilities reach unbelievable new heights for someone still so young. Continued praise and support from fellow DJs and producers such as Jackmaster, Skream, Four Tet, and Optimo have aided Denis Sulta, and ultimately, his incredible hard work has allowed him to play alongside and work on projects for Annie Mac both at Radio 1 and at the legendary Space, Ibiza. The prodigal producer has successfully graduated from the Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal with his records playing on the radio and in nightclubs the world over. To end out 2016 Denis Sulta skyrocketed in at #26 on the RA Top 100 Poll, becoming the highest new entry that year, and if rumour has it, also ever. It is undeniably clear to see that there is no slowing down for the illustrious Mr Sulta.
