Korn

The members of Korn built an immortal bond back in 1993 the first time that Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, and Brian "Head" Welch decided to make music as a unit. They shed blood, sweat, and tears in the studio and on stage, fashioning an undeniable, unsettling, and unique sound that would permanently alter the course of rock music.

Bear's Den

Welcome to Bear’s Den. Inspired by Maurice Sendak’s 1963 children’s classic ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, this London based trio (Andrew Davie; guitar & vocals, Kev Jones drums; vocals and Joey Haynes banjo; vocals) create music which -whisper it- dares to be both literate and profound. While, crucially, remaining universally accessible.

Jagwar Ma

Jagwar Ma came together in Sydney Australia when Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield bonded over a mutual passion of melody and experimental beats, and the pair set out creating a sound that would capture their love for contemporary electronica & classic American pop harmony, Joe Meek & King Tubby, vintage drum machines & radio frequency manipulation, improvised percussion and other esoteric methods of creating sound.
