CHAD VALLEY
CHAD VALLEY
Chad Valley are the personal outpourings of one Hugo Manuel, the balearic-inclined vocalist of Oxford's Jonquil and founder member of the Blessing Force collective.

Taking a more electronic approach to sunset vibes, Hugo has made quite a splash this past summer. In his short 25 show career he's already played in Dublin, Paris, Budapest, Belgrade and Istanbul, been a big smash at In The City and supported the likes of Amiina, Mountain Goats and Foals. His music has been on every blog you can think of from Gorilla vs. Bear to Pitchfork's Forkcast, the latter of which has featured him three times in recent months and at one point in late October was the fourth most blogged about artist on the planet.

He's enjoyed a host of radio plays across the BBC and had his debut BBC session recorded for Huw Stephens' show in January 2011.

Chad Valley's debut EP is out on Service's US imprint Cascine (USA / UK / JP / Scan) and French label Maman (EU) and a follow up is slated for release this coming Spring in UK, US and Japan.
COMPUTER MAGIC
COMPUTER MAGIC
An enigma of individuality, Danielle "Danz" Johnson is her own sound. Fueled by an obsession with music stemming back to growing up in the Catskills of New York, music has always been her mainstay. Danz joined the NYC music scene at 18 as a DJ and Promoter whilst going to Hunter College. After a few years in NYC, Danz took a hiatus to Tampa, Florida where she began teaching herself to create music. The result was Computer Magic – a solid mesh of space-like dance beats and personable lyrics. Danz returned to New York and started performing live. Computer Magic to date has released 3 full length records in Japan on P-vine & Tugboat Records, the last of which "Mindstate" making it to #1 on the Japanese Electronic music charts. She has released 6 EPs worldwide, and will be releasing her US debut full length record later this year produced by Claudius Mittendorfer.

Since their inception in 2015, indie electronic duo MRCH has been recognized by The Guardian as “band of the week” and CMJ as - one to watch. Mixing dreamy vocals with energetic performances, MRCH’s juxtaposition is both intriguing and entertaining. Front woman Mickey Pangburn switches between electric guitar and synth. Drummer Jesse Pangburn combines acoustic and electronic percussive elements into understated yet grooving beats. Focusing heavily on their live show, the duo has toured the west coast extensively releasing four singles over the past two years. Their track Highway Drivin’ played in Showtime series Shameless and ABC’s Guilt, while their single Spin was placed in Pitchfork/Ford In Focus series featuring the front-women of Best Coast and Sleigh Bells. MRCH’s debut EP “I Love You, but You Don’t Know What You’re Talking About” was self-released in June 2016 followed by a support tour through the Midwest. Just this Fall MRCH participated in several showcases for Mondo NYC music festival, opened for Chvrches & recorded a new single Glitter McQueen – which premiered on Consequence of Sound in November of 2016. MRCH is currently touring and wrapping production on several new tracks.
