Taking beauty form the everyday, incorporating field recordings and homemade instruments alongside unique techniques Yosi makes extraordinary and beautiful music.

His talent has been widely recognized he has worked with Giles Peterson and played a host of the best opportunities in music including Glastonbury, Sónar, Mutek, Dimensions, Boiler Room, LOW END THEORY etc. The Red Bull Music Academy Madrid have made a film about him.

Rob Blazey is a local low end provider, beat maker and one fifth of live electronic band Grey Tapes. His performance project Kalimbo unites his obsessions of making instruments from found-objects and music from found-sounds, using a collage-built thumb piano/gestural midi controller to capture, trigger and manipulate live audio, collected samples and synths.
