About Independent Venue Week:
"Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK. [Bringing them together with] breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs at the end of January.
These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in this country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future."
Born in Maryland, USA, Jalen N’Gonda chose the city of Liverpool as the place in which he would flourish as a musician. It was at the age of 11 he began getting into music, inspired by his father’s collection of jazz, hip-hop, soul and classical records.
A few years later, Jalen is living in the UK, and is announced by the Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) Academy as one of its ‘Most Ready’ artists for 2015. Besides his performance at LIMF Jalen has played gigs across the UK and beyond, selling out his first headline show in London and supporting touring acts such as Laura Mvula, Martha Reeves and Lauryn Hill at the Montreal Jazz Festival.
Taking cues from the British Punk Jazz scene and utilising extended breathing techniques and special FX (championed by players such as Mats Gustafson and Colin Stetson), Run Logan Run create music that is both beautiful and brutal. Though the band have only been together since 2015 they have already gathered a cult following in their hometown of Bristol and recently played two exceptional support slots opening up for Melt Yourself Down and Colin Stetson. They are currently touring the UK to showcase their debut release EP1, which came out in April 2016.
Back at the boot-up of time a bunch of rad bad dudes were installed in stunning HD (5MB disk space required) - Equipped with a codex of game OST's and a gameshark full of cheatcodes, EZXP play souped-up versions of all your favourite video game themes.
From the depths of Gerudo Valley and the slums of Midgar to the heights of Emerald Hill and Mushroom Kingdom. EZXP transform the songs that were once a symbol of repeated game-overs into a magical medley of musical mayhem.
Kits (stylised KITS). Kit - noun - a small fur-bearing animal. KITS is the one-man synth-folk project of Jayson Turner, a Computer Scientist originally from Walney Island, now living in Lancaster. KITS combines vocals, electric guitar, synth, and sequenced percussion amidst other "toys”. The vision is to create something simple and meaningful with uplifting melodies and neat beats.
