EXTRA CURRICULAR

After releasing two EPs on Doorly's Pigeonhole This! label in summer 2012 the rest of the World are now waking up to Extra Curricular's fresh new sound. The band's debut EP with Doorly 'Wont Stay Down' peaked at number 11 in the iTunes electronic chart and set the scene for the follow up success of 'Last Day'. 'Last Day' received countless Radio 1 plays courtesy of Annie Mac, Toddla T, and Friction, and was showcased as part of Annie's now legendary 'Free Music Monday'.

The band can also count Andi Durrant (Capital FM) and Eddy Temple-Morris (Xfm) as fans. Mixmag, Knowledge Magazine, and DJMag have run features on EC, with Mixmag premiering the band's debut music video on their worldwide blog. Following on, 'LAST DAY' has now appeared on the Ibiza Rocks 2012 compilation and the Jaguar Skills and Friends album.

BRONZEHEAD

BronzeHead is a 10-piece group from London, formed in 2010 to make new music inspired by the raw & heavy funk rhythms of 1970's West Africa.

During this era, bands in countries like Nigeria, Ghana & Benin mixed traditional African rhythms together with funk & soul to form thrilling new genres such as Afrobeat, Afrofunk & Highlife. These sounds have incited dancefloor chaos for decades, and at the very core of BronzeHead is the desire to do just that.

With past musical experience in rock, reggae, hip hop, jazz, ska, and electronic, BronzeHead's all-original interpretation of Afrobeat is unique and versatile, informed by their diverse cultural backgrounds and grounded in our daily experiences and challenges in London.
