JAMIE XX (London)

"one of electronic music's most respected figures…on In Colour thoughts come to life as the sounds of a thousand London dancefloors." -- the FADER

LOWER DENS (Baltimore)

"The (songs) on the band's new album, Escape From Evil, are lush but distant, beautiful things held just out of reach...feels like a long-lost synthpop classic of the '80s, complete with robotic bass and an undeniable dance floor undertow" -- NPR

TEI SHI (Brooklyn)

"...like a cross between the lushness of Bat for Lashes and the minimalism of the xx." -- Pitchfork

BOP ENGLISH (Austin only)

"this is an album that restores faith in the sheer joy of music...5 stars" -- the Independent

YUMI ZOUMA (New Zealand)

"Yumi Zouma's music - budget-plush, instantly poignant - sounds placeless" -- the Guardian

"Prince Innocence make shimmering synth pop, sleek r&b and cold eyed soul" -- i-D
