Info -

Astral Void are a melodic heavy rock band established in 2007 and originate from Norfolk. Former Red Leaf front man Andy Martin began performing at local pubs doing solo Electric/Acoustic performances with his own original material. Wanting to form his ideas into a band format Andy advertised online and came across Chris Gedge, who had recently left covers/originals band Smoking Aces, in 2010. After meeting and jamming the pursuit was on for other members to join. After gigging around the Norfolk and London areas for two years the band went on hiatus leaving things unsettled and unfinished. Andy went on to do some personal pursuits and Chris joined TheFallOfScience and performed with Norwich locals The Upgrade.


September 2013 Astral Void recruited Nathan Redgrave and Liam Ramsker, two amazingly talented musicians. With a new line up all the unsettled, unfinished business of before now resolved. New songs, new refreshed confidence, Astral Void are even more hard hitting than before and will continue to blast their brand of alternative rock into 2015 and beyond.

perform. The band energises their audience in a way that has so far greatly surpassed any of their rivals and earned themselves an array of prominent gigs opening for acts such as Electric Six, The Quireboys, Taking Dawn and InMe to name a few.

The band have received rave reviews in the UK and state side, the now four-piece have proven to the world that they are pulling in the right direction. The music of Matchstickmen appeals to rock fans and non-rock fans alike and is an essential addition to any music lover’s library.


The German producer Rico Hartmann and the singer & songwriter, Italian native, living in the UK, Stephano Prunebelli are behind the EDM project Jack & Jones.

After the debut single "Let's escalate" was published in July 2015 and had become successful in the clubs of the nation, those two now present us with the follow-up single "Wrong" a dance floor smasher with hit-potential. The project mainly stands out from the mass of various other EDM productions, thanks to Stephano's unmistakable voice and Rico's hypnotic EDM sound.

The bundle is completed by stylistically versatile remixes of Ticane (Chillout ambience), PNO (EDM House), Peter Tanico E39 (House), X-Ite (Chill atmosphere) & DJ Schluetex (Dancehall).

We will continue to hear a lot from "Jack & Jones" in the future, because these two artists and producers are already working on new tracks.

JACK & JONES - WRONG ... rock the Club !!!

Comfy Slippers" in taken from their album "Walking Underwater Pt 2" follow up to the debut album from London based band Johnny Wore Black who released Part 1 in March 2014 to rave reviews. Walking Underwater Pt 2 again includes writing and performance contributions from David Ellefson of Megadeth and mixing by Grammy Award winning producer David Bottrill and Johnny Wore Black’s guitarist James Coppolaro. 


The album is an energetic and intensely passionate collection of songs. The album includes previous singles Noise, Gift of Desperation and seven as yet unheard tracks. Available on worldwide digital release and CD now.


Dark and brooding, heavily influenced my the moving image, Johnny Wore Black brings it to the streets. Tell your own story, tell it your own way and keep it real. Nothing else matters.






“Dark and brooding, its poignant message about the physical and emotional sacrifice of our armed forces really hits home” – Music Week Magazine


“A surprisingly accessible dream-like number” – Record Collector Magazine


“Perfectly balanced and epic” – Tasty Fanzine


“A haunting dose of melody and emotion” – A Metal State of Mind


“Jay Coen’s voice portray[s] a poignant message” – Popped Culture


“Soaring minimalist fret-work caked in distortion…paint[s] bleak battlefield silhouettes infused with dark imagery of a soldiers return home encased in a flag-draped casket” – Speak Into My Good Eye


“[A] magnificently produced rock ballad, overwhelmingly heartfelt lyrically with an equally emotive soundtrack and made even more poignant by the artist’s own experiences” – Rik Magee @ Pure Radio

Look Both Ways" is taken from their album "Soul King Fire"
on release through iTunes, Apple Music Spotify etc


Sonny Jim are a 3 piece guitar based combo from Bridgend, South Wales.

We first discovered Sonny Jim back in 2012 and promptly released their debut EP, ‘What’s Up With You?’ which captured a raw and heavy sound. Two singles taken from their debut EP received both regional and national radio play.  


2013 then saw Sonny Jim release ‘The Freaks EP’ together with a brilliant video to their monster track, ‘Freakshow’. Sonny Jim then released their awesome debut album ‘123’ but only in a traditional format to preserve their mystic. We quickly secured Sonny Jim US licensing in 2014 at a time when the band started receiving interest in the UK and internationally.


The time has now come for Sonny Jim to release their second album ‘Soul King Fire’ (on release May 29th) The album is a mature and considered offering but retains that heavy yet melodic ‘Sonny Jim’ sound. Tempted by an oversees offer, Sonny Jim remained faithful to their roots and Holier Than Thou Records. We are now proud to release their rocking new album and this time in a digital format.


The strength of Sonny Jim lies in the consistent quality of their songwriting and recordings. This is a band destined for great things although we are at risk of losing them to a major in the not too distant future. Sonny Jim thrive on playing edgy hard rock with souring melodies and ‘Soul King Fire’ dishes it out in spades, you won’t be disappointed. Long live Sonny Jim.




The Five Hundred are a five-man musical wrecking machine dedicated to pulverising eardrums and rattling bones across the metal landscape. Dealing in an array of down-tuned riffs and barbed hooks, the UK/Gibraltarian quintet unleash an avalanche of crushing groove and belligerent aggression, broken up by some searing leads, haunting vocal melodies and devastating, earth-shaking breakdowns.

Delivering a potent soundtrack to urban warfare and social discontent, the band have shared stages with groups ranging from brutal grind-fathers Napalm Death and industrial pioneers Fear Factory through to progressive death metallers All Shall Perish and metal media darlings Architects & Tesseract.

The Five Hundred is:
John Eley - Vocals
Mark Byrne - Guitars
Paul Doughty - Guitars
Andy Crawford - Bass
Liam Perez - Drums

Forthcoming shows:
26th September - Mosh Against Cancer "PadFest 2", The Hairy Dog, Derby
3rd October - Mammothfest, Brighton (supporting Feed The Rhino, Malefice & RSJ)

Road To Success VOL 3 “Memoirs from a Repertoire"


Following the huge successful reception of his début Mini Album “Rise Of An Empire” (a whopping 15,000 downloads, and over 200,000 youtube plays combined) Ki Faro spent the last few months performing across the UK.!

When Ki Faro decided to release his next project, drawing from the emotional and political state of current world affairs he found himself homeless for a sort period of time. Combining these three psychological distresses his evolution into a complete artist had begun.

His début video “Suruele" (A remix of a Dr Sid track) explains his harsh transition for riches to rags. However, despite the harsh realities of homelessness Ki Faro was able to bounce back with his 2nd video track “Grime tribute” tributing to the old school and new school legends of Grime. His 2 remixes of “King Kunta" “Ojuelegba” touch on sensitive social issues, whilst the rest of the mixtape is rounded off with party/trap tracks and old school hip-hop fused with the golden age lyrical content we all crave for.


“Definitely one to watch” - MTV !
“Intelligent lyrics, effortless style” - SoundSynergy !
“Ki Faro the new type of artist (a rapper and business mogul) - Hollywood Celebrity Gossip!

The Road To Success VOL 3: Is a compilation of freestyle’s and covers from Ki faro. Alongside exclusive tracks the “Memoir of a repertoire” direct translation leads us to believe that this is a combination of his best back catalogue tracks ranging from 2013 to newer releases recorded in late 2015. The road to Success is fused with the lyrical talent of Ki Faro. This compilation is the 3rd instalment of the "Road To Success" series.! 

Short Bio: Ki Faro burst onto the scene in 2012 with the Urban anthem ' Made in the Mana; an underground homage to the positivity and creativity which his often maligned environment can spawn ‘There are so many negative implications about being from the manor, I just wanted to show different side to it.’ 


Discovered after a song she wrote for her GCSE music exam led to her being featured on ITV Daybreak, Naomi has since been working with one of the world's most successful producers, John McLaughlin (Busted, 911, Westlife), who together with Dave Thomas (Echo And The Bunnymen) and Jud Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown) are helping her realise her vision of what she wants her music to achieve. Her new single 'Rivers Run' is out on September 25th.

Party Hard'' has a lot of energy and sounds like a great party song! The song is produce in modern dance-club style. It was on 14 place in Top 30 most downloaded songs from djs in DJ Promotion Poland pool.
