RAW SILK is the alias of best pals Grace and Steph, an ode to one of their favourite 80’s boogie groups. After meeting & spending one glorious year of dance in Melbourne in 2016, back in London these two are rapidly making a name for themselves by digging deep and voyaging to all four corners of dance.
Joe Goddard, member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label. Like Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie xx, Joe combines a thirst for experimentation, an instinctive understanding of the dancefloor and a love of left-of-centre pop music.
As well as working on six Hot Chip albums and two with Raf Rundell as the 2 Bears, Joe has remixed the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order, Disclosure, Dirty Projectors, the Chemical Brothers, Wiley and Jessie Ware, produced tracks for Franz Ferdinand, Bernard Sumner, Little Boots and Dels, and released a string of solo singles. Gabriel, his haunting 2011 hit with singer Valentina, was his first big success beyond Hot Chip. “It made me feel that I was capable of doing things outside the band,” he says. A keen collaborator, he is set to appear on forthcoming projects from Michael Mayer and Tuff City Ki

KRYWALD & FARRER
As lifetime residents of Percolate, Krywald & Farrer have over the years steadily grown into highly regarded artists following the creation of their Persies, Repsies and Top Pocket Records labels. Having built a reputation based on both the depth and breadth of their record selection, the duo have become regulars on both the UK festival circuit and beyond.
Joey Negro has been producing with love for close to three decades. Arguably house music’s major proponent of soulful, disco-tinged, vocal records and without question instrumental is its development and popularisation, no-one treats a loop, groove or hook with as much care and attention as Joey Negro.
Joey Negro is the most well-known pseudonym of master British DJ, producer and remixer Dave Lee. Under a plethora of other monikers including Akabu, Doug Willis, The Sunburst Band, Sessomatto, and Z Factor, Dave was one of the first artists to incorporate disco samples in house music when he began his production career in 1988.
