Boundary-pushing, genre-clashing, 'Intentions' is blended with abstract rhythms, cryptic vocals and cataclysmic beats that offer a glimpse of his upcoming EP 'Love In The Backwater'.
Dirty Freud has created a reverberating echo chamber of post-Dub Step filled with electronics and dark soundscape; that flows alongside the unearthly vocalist Szou.
With the success of his cutting-edge productions and gracing stages across Glastonbury, Reading and Boomtown. Dirty Freud is embarking on a dystopian journey.
Only Sun - Bad Decisions
One of the hottest and most talked indie band out there, Only Sun have returned with their latest single 'Bad Decisions'.

Fulfilled with electric riffs and killer beats that fit for a perfect indie anthem.
Chappaqua Wrestling - The Rift
Forming in late 2017 the Brighton-based band have championed the music industry and 'The Rift' once again proves they are not here to mess around.
