Somewhere in the heart of Manchester, on the top floor of an old factory mill; you can hear the rumbling of distorted 808 bass…

…the sound of skippy hi hats, lush synth layers and snapping snare drums which clatter like machine gun fire in battle!

Then suddenly, without warning, you're stopped firmly in your tracks as the soul-steeped voice of Mancunian recording artist "Prima" pierces through the speakers and you realise what we have here is someone truly remarkable! 

Prima is a singer/songwriter from Manchester UK, who's classically trained background has her steeped in musical heritage from an early age.

Working with some of the UK's most well respected producers and MC’s, Prima is fast becoming an exciting name in all the right circles and you can feel a real underground buzz surrounding her movement.

Add to that the overwhelming support she's received from BBC Introducing and subsequently BBC 1Xtra who selected Prima's song "What Ru Saying?" for "track of the week" (adding it to the very prestigious BBC 1xtra playlist) it's clear to see that Prima is going to be a real handful...... a PROBLEM! 

Collaborations forthcoming with Zed Bias, Black Josh, Dyno, SHAPES, Virus Syndicate, Binky and more, with a trilogy of releases waiting to unleash and a bag of other tricks in her box there is no stopping this hype train.

Lucy Mae Duo

If you listen to the unique vocals of Lucy Mae once, you’ll know it’s her for a lifetime. Deep & husky tones, with little hints of Soul.

lucmae-1024x1024.jpg

If you listen to the unique vocals of Lucy Mae once, you’ll know it’s her for a lifetime. Deep & husky tones, with little hints of Soul reminiscent to the great singers of way back when Lucy was raised in Manchester to an English mother & Spanish father, music from all around the world was embedded into her mind from an early age and as she grew, that mind did too.

Now, ask the songstress where she draws her influence from today and you’ll be given an array of history, including - 90’s RnB, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, The Cinematic Orchestra, Buena Vista Social Club and Hendrix. There is no set Genre here, just a delicious cocktail of one woman’s musical journey. That niche genre has catapulted Lucy into Manchester’s music scene, specifically the Jazz scene (not just in Manchester in fact, but the UK as a whole).

2017 saw her debut at her Cities most famous music event - Manchester Jazz Festival, with rave reviews. Following this she has recently supported YolanDa Brown and performed sell out shows across the country.

Charlie Cooper Quartet

Charlie Cooper writes vintage soul, updated perfectly, sung with deep and husky soul-pipes!

charlie.jpg

Not only comparable with classic voices like Dusty Springfield and Shirley Bassey but also up there with
modern soul divas Alice Russell and Sharon Jones, Charlie is a vocal force to be reckoned with.
The songs emerge from another time, influenced by the classic songwriting and arranging of
Bacharach and Hal David, accompanied by grooves akin to old school Stax and Motown. Charlie
invites you in for a glimpse into her mind and her world, whilst her band ("The CC's") kick it like
Booker T and the MGs.

Superb talent and excellent musicality”” Great charm and positivity coupled with that little bit of magic which all good performers have
