De Beren Gieren (Belgium)

A favourite on our Worldwide FM Match&Fuse radio show, this Belgium piano trio combine a modern sensibility with sparkling melodies and complex structures. Polyrhythmic soundscapes, elitist twists, and an understanding of mood make their sound engaging, but more importantly it’s also gorgeous.

Skeltr (UK)

New duo spanning genres and attitudes, creating big energy and gentle waves. Manchester-based Sam Healey builds sax lines and electronic soundscapes with Craig Hanson’s drum patterns and samples, all manipulated spontaneously. A striking, expansive sound with a buzzing energy at its core.

CHROMB! (France)
Quartet with strings, reeds, 88 keys and drums, making guitarless rock, distorted jazz or chamber music depending on the occasion. Prisoner of no specific style; CHROMB! like to build a fat mutant sound, with melodies, screams, silence and all-round weirdness.
