About the artist
Her seven albums with Goldfrapp were fuelled by an unfailing modernity and a sixth sense for sounds that were more timeless than any trend. Established in 1999, Goldfrapp’s debut album was nominated for a Mercury Prize and over their career they produced three number-one US dance singles and received multiple Grammy nominations including Best Electronic/Dance Album. The multi-platinum selling band have won prestigious awards including two Ivor Novellos, ASCAP/PRS, Music Week, MTV Europe and Music Producers Guild award. They were also nominated for two BRITs and a Mercury.
2022 saw Alison release her first solo collaboration ‘Impossible’ with Royksopp, and in 2023 she released ‘The Love Invention’.
Take a listen
Boys’ Shorts are a Greek dj/production duo, consisting of Vangelis (formerly of LAGASTA) and electronic recording artist Tareq.
Their sound is a blend of everything they love to mix in their DJ sets – from House to slow techno and from disco to acid. To quote the boys “We make people dance!”
Their track “New Era” reached No1 on both Beatport and the Juno Download chart, as well as being hot listed on Germany’s Radio Eins, and their track “Fantastic” received support from BBC Radio 1.
The last couple of years has seen them tour around Europe, playing in world renowned venues such as Berghain/Panorama bar and London’s E1, while also bringing their unique sound to festivals like “Lost Village” and WECANDANCE. Building on their success the boys have also enjoyed playing at New York’s Le Bain, Good Room, and House of YES, as well as opening for Hot Chip’s concert at the Knockdown Center.
