NEPO X TEMKO
Horaine “KNERS” Ferguson returns from hiatus with his third music video for the song “Lonely” taken from his most recent album “V.O.T.C. – Voice of The City” which is OUT NOW via his own label “K Star”. Kners is one of the many musical innovators from Bristol, treading a path beaten by Wild Bunch, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Roni Size and Joker, to name a few. This Bristolian artist has gained much respect from the music industry since releasing his debut album “K In Da Flesh” independently on his own label in 2006. K*Ners is currently working on some new releases for his “K Star” imprint, “Lonely” music video serves as a appetiser for the main course of new music he has coming in the pipeline.
Discount Columbo are a Britpop five-piece from Bristol turning heads on the UK live circuit. Boasting three-part harmony, stadium guitar solos and a catalogue of bold, energetic songs. Discount Columbo's blistering live set is one not to be missed.
Brook moved to Bristol in September and writes soul/jazz style music with his hollow electric guitar. He aims to create songs, which have a strong rhythmic drive, flowing melodies and lyrics which cover subjects that connect with different people in different ways.
NEPO X TEMKO
Nu-Soul Duo Nepo x Temko bring colour to stories of the everyday. Nepo’s tight beats and mellow guitar grooves combined with Temko’s sultry vocals and melodies provide a rich, highly original sound.
Shumba Maasai delivers a blend of conscious and introspective poetry, drenched in contemporary attitude. Heady and menacing beats back-up vocals that flicker from Shumba's tranquillised inner thoughts to militant metaphors fired at the listener. With a high lyrical ability, unorthodox approach to writing and a strong poetic element throughout, the lyrics are just as comfortable in spoken word as they are when lacing the beat.
