ROBORTOM

Rob da Bank is Radio 1’s leftfield extraordinaire (with 2 shows), daddy to the UK’s finest festival, Bestival and its younger upstart, Camp Bestival, and one half of Lazyboy (with Mr Dan). He’s also head honcho at Sunday Best, the imprint that’s home to Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, and more.

Tom Middleton is one of electronic music’s most inventive and ardent ambassadors, with a thirst for all musical forms from baroque to breakbeat. As part of Global Communication and Jedi Knights (both with Mark Pritchard), he defined 90’s electronica. He’s also flirted with chart success as Cosmos, helped Aphex Twin sign his first record deal, and has remixed Prince. And these achievements form only the very tip of an enormous creative iceberg.

Au Revoir Simone makes dreamy electronic pop music using elemental materials: keyboards and voices braid together in a warm thrum of whirring machines and soft melodies. In addition to their music, Annie, Heather and Erika are widely recognized for their inimitable sense of style and involvement in the fashion world, they’ve featured in Vogue and The New York Times Magazine, and worked with fashion icons including Kate Spade, agnès b. and Isaac Mizrahi.

Tom Hodge’s compositional style draws on elements of classical minimalism, groove-based jazz and electronica, he has written music for approximately two hundred commercials, films, TV and theatre pieces. Recent credits include the classical remix of Daft Punk’s Aerodynamic, the score to the feature film “Pimp” as well as adverts for Boots, Ikea & Max Factor.
