ELEVNS are an electronic-beat maker duo based in London. The line-up consists of just two musicians Aurelian and Gramm. The duo decided to start a project where they would produce tracks with special feature singers: and ELEVNS was born. The name came from the fact that they share the number 11 in their birthday. The pair describes themselves as sponges absorbing anything that inspires them. Their music weaves between genre boundaries including elements of Hip-hop, soultronic, pop and contemporary R&B. Coming from a live background and having performed their first ever headline gig at the Rockwood Music Hall in New York, the combo created a project that allows them to perform on stage as a duo, trio or in full band. In Autumn 2017, they got in touch with the innovative company ROLI after attending a conference about creativity including a talk between Pharrell Williams and ROLI founder Roland Lamb. A few weeks later ELEVNS met ROLI’s artists management in New York and eventually got endorsed by the brand who also shared their footage on their official Instagram. They joined the Soundbrenner family a few months later and now use Soundbrenner’s smart wearable metronome Pulse. ELEVNS created their own label Deja-New Records in 2016. The concept is to induce listeners into remembering about a good feeling while discovering new music.

THE BAY RAYS (@thebayrays)
Bay Rays started as 3 best friends from Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Harry Nicoll, Maxwell Oakley and Anthus Davis.
The trio formed in 2015 and built a reputation for an energetic live show in their local area. Following the success of their debut single ’Satisfaction’ the band went on to headline Glastonbury’s BBC Introducing Stage in 2016, as well as heading out on numerous UK tours, supporting bands such as Kent friends, Slaves, Hidden Charms, Estrons and Ten Fe. Their latest EP, ‘Darkness and Doubt’ was released in August 2018 and was produced by good friend Drew Bang, who had previously worked with Royal Blood and U2. Collaborating with him brought a fresh perspective and a refined sound. The singles, Begin Again, Can’t Let Go and The Chamber, were soon picked up by Huw Stephens and Annie Mac at BBC Radio One, Steve Lamacq at BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy and Felix White at XFM.
The band will be playing numerous shows for the rest of 2018 with intermittent stops to the studio to start laying down their next ideas.
Laky is a singer-songwriter signed to Saulty Songs. She sits on the calmer, cooler side of pop. Her country and soul undertones, alongside her clever lyrics, bring a raw maturity to her songs. Mix that in with her hook driven melodies and unique vocal and you’re on to a winner. Growing up with musical parents, most of her inspiration stems from eclectic 70s and 80s music (that she still loves today). More recently you can catch her listening to musicians such as; Jade Bird, Joss Stone, Christine and The Queens, Ed Sheeran, John Mayer and The Civil Wars to name a few. Having recently changed her artist name from ‘Kyla Stroud’ to ‘LAKY’, she is discovering a whole new sound and writing more than ever before. You won’t find a lot online for now but be sure to keep an eye on this humorous 24 year old.
