Hard-Fi started creating their social realist indie rock anthems for our audible pleasure back in 2003 and in 2005 we saw the tracks “Cash Machine”, “Living for the Weekend” and “Hard to Beat” all get into the top 15 of the UK Singles Chart. Their debut album Stars of CCTV reached number 1 in the UK Album Chart. 
Two years later their second album Once Upon a Time in the West also reached number 1 in the UK Album Chart featuring the singles “Suburban Knights”, “Can’t Get Along (Without You)” and “I Shall Overcome”. Lead singer Archer said of the album that it is “darker and more expensive.”  Fast forward a couple of years and 2011 has seen the release of the singles “Good for Nothing” and “Fire in the House” from their new album Killer Sounds. “Good for Nothing” being coined Hottest Record in the World on April 28th by Radio 1’s highly regarded DJ Zane Lowe- a credible accolade indeed.

Early show
Broken Design Presents My Element EP Launch Party
MyElement are a five piece indie / powerpop band based in East and West Sussex. The band formed at the beginning of 2006 when vocalist and lead guitarist Harry Peach went into the studio to record some songs for James Borland's Music Production degree. All of the other band members were then brought in as session musicians to record various parts for the songs, however the chemistry between all the musicians was so strong that they decided to give playing as a band a go.  Since these very early days, the band have had time to develop their sound and stage show to a point where they are a truly unique unsigned band. Their broad range of influences and backgrounds mean that the songs vary in style from one to another - one minute calming you with their melodic three part harmonies, the next making you want to dance around the room

Live Nation Presents Christina Perri

After performing her defiant break-up anthem “Jar of Hearts” on Fox’s ‘So You Think You Can Dance?’, the track sold 200,000 downloads in the first three weeks propelling her into the charts. Perri lays herself bare on her album “Lovestrong”, and using her soaring, bittersweet voice and expressive piano playing, she taps into the heartbreak that most of us will have felt at some point. The honest, emotional quality of her performance connects with audiences everywhere.

Lee Scratch Perry
Whether you think he is a genius or a madman, there is no denying that Lee Scratch Perry is a towering figure in reggae. Not only is he a producer and mixer, but he is also a singer/songwriter who helped develop and shape the sound of dub and pushed reggae into the pop music world.  Having worked with Bob Marley, King Tubby and the Wailers, he is undoubtedly responsible for helping make reggae what it is today.  Expect a breathtakingly psychedelic mix of music that is way ahead of its time.

Metropolis Music Presents Roots Manuva
Rodney Smith (better known as Roots Manuva) has been recording since 1994, with his warm, easily recognisable voice being heard on a number of different artist’s tracks, from Gorrillaz to Mr Scruff. He has had such a huge impact on the UK rap scene that The Times once said “his is the voice of urban Britain, encompassing dub, ragga, funk and hip hop as it sweeps from crumbling street corners to ganja-filled dancehalls, setting gritty narratives against all manner of warped beats” Manuva was rewarded for his breakthrough with a MOBO as Best Hip Hop Act that year. The lyrics of his songs are often known to take a distinctly British edge, with many critics highlighting his references of eating cheese on toast and drinking bitter as examples of this.
