Same Teens, Pronk and Murkage Cartel

Sunday May 30th
Sound Control Manchester

Same Teens, Pronk and Murkage Cartel have got together for a takeover of Sound Control on New Wakefield St and have invited some of our favourite acts and DJs to play as part of Eurocultured.

Voice of The Seven Thunders
Real Dolls
Naive New Beaters
Murkage Cartel
High Rankin

People tend to overuse the word ‘eclectic’ but our line up takes in everything from prog to dubstep and whatever lies betweens so we think we’re justified. Eurocultured itself is on the day after too and includes appearances by Little Dragon and Dungen

Voice of The Seven Thunders – Total prog out from the people who brought you Voice of The Seven Woods.
“This album is a total 70’s psyche acid rock fest which which make you want to flail yourself all around the shop like a true rock god” is how Norman Records put it and we can’t disagree.

Walls – one part Allez Allez and one part Banjo or Freakout.  Signed to Kompakt they have made and one of our favourite albums of the year so far. It has just scored an unparalleled 9/10 in Vice, DJ Magazine and The NME and this is their first appearance outside London.

Real Dolls – a little bit J pop and a little bit hip hop. We just love their debut single ‘Trophy’. They mash up vibrant pop, hip hop, club beats, cartoonish manga visuals and insane amounts of energy to create an infectious whole. They describe themselves as ‘A party band’, and anyone who’s witnessed their live shows will know what they mean

Naive New Beaters – one listen and we were smitten – joining the dots between rap rock and electro house it’s a big bonjour for our fave new Parisians. Getting ready for appearances at Glastonbury, Bestival and all over Europe. Remember, you heard them here first. Unless of course you heard them first somewhere else.

Bubbz – Heralded by the NME as the UK’s answer to Kanye West and a hip-hop innovator, Bubbz has received
critical acclaim and commendation from the likes of Mark Ron son . DJs known to have been playing
Bubbz’ music include DJs Rob Da Bank and Ras Kwame (BBC Radio 1)
A graduate of The Red Bull Music Academy, Bubbz has had tour/performance dates with
Scratch Perverts, Flying Lotus, Sway and Mark Ronson.

Murkage Cartel –  those nutters from Manchester, best known for coming to your local warehouse
rave and festival and tearing it to pieces!!! Mashing together Dubstep, Electro, UK Garage, Jungle, UK
Funky, Kuduro and more, this gang of talented cats are definitely set to blow for 2010!! SuperSuper
magazine, Channel 4 and Boxfresh Clothing are all over these guys at the moment…

High Rankin – or Will to his mum has been making some serious waves of late. The last 6 months have seen him remix Hervé, Amon Tobin, Cypress Hill, Adam Freeland, Si Begg and the Stereo Mc’s.
He’s been receiving huge hype on Radio One from Annie Mac about two of his latest tracks ‘No Money For Guns’ and ‘Bubble and Squeak’. Both these tracks, along with 2 others, now proudly reside on Hervés label ‘Cheap Thrills’ and will be out as an EP in late April.

They’ll all be joined by Murkage, Same Teens and Pronk DJs so we’ll see you there…
