Brighton quintet CHOPCHOP can't stay still for long in any one genre, preferring instead to slip wildly in and out of punk-funk, jazz, prog, electronica and spoken-word. Born of contradictory musical tensions, they have created a free-wheeling set of compositions that range from intricate, complex arrangements to the crudest monolithic riffs. They are known for their shows full of energy that combine high-weird performance, can't-help-but-dance rhythms and adventurous improvisations. Their debut album ‘Everything Looks So Real’ (Rose Hill Records) is released on February 14.

'A fantastic life affirming noise ... A wildly original new quintet' - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

Map 71

Map 71 combine the words of artist Lisa Jayne with the productions of Andy Pyne, bringing together sinister ritual percussion and sparse electro textures with a voice racing between surreal demons and earthy anxiety. Haunting, darkly engaging music which is still danceable.

“Apocalyptic proclamations from some piss-stained midnight car park of the mind” - The Wire

The Emperors Of Ice Cream

Scrawly DIY acid-punk goodness from Brighton. Their latest album 'Vice Cream' was released on cassette in September.
