Integer’s passion is bass music for all – as opposed to assigning certain genres to certain tempos. However, Broken-Techno and Dubstep will always be the focus of his creations.
He’s stated that he receives inspiration from labels such as Tempa, Deep Medi, Tresor and Osiris Music. His most recent visit to Brazil has fuelled an organic twist in his production style, with a revisit to Rio de Janeiro in the horizon. Integer always strives to constantly develop innovation within his music whilst collaborating with as many inspirational artists as possible.
Wil is a 19 year old British music producer, songwriter living and studying in Surrey. He is currently working on a lot of weird and wonderful electronic music which has heavy influence from UK bass and the Hip-Hop/trap scene. His influences are however not limited, he takes much inspiration from jazz, soul, and funk. He is due to be releasing new music in the coming year.
Born and raised in the UK, Wil was learning to play guitar, drums and keys from an early age he discovered Ableton Live at the age of 15 and began making hip hop beats in his bedroom. Wil is in the planning stage of creating a live set which will be something to keep an ear out for this year.
His productions have ranged from experimental hip-hop beats to warm electronic synth heaven that will hopefully make you cry/dance at the same time.
As well as singing all of his life, he’s played guitar whilst independently writing since 2010, whilst only beginning to produce around 3 years ago and has independently distributed completed compositions online since 2014. Born and bred in South London, this youthful artist is bursting with creativity – with his latest EP debut video set to be released this summer.
Victoria is mostly influenced by Jazz, and describes her music as ‘modern with a vintage twist’. Recently, she competed at the Grand Final of Open Mic UK (2016) whereby she won two of Rocket Fuels’ ‘Best Original Song Awards’.
Drawing heavy inspiration from trips to Japan, the culture and sounds of the streets have become a backbone to productions; whilst always incorporating colourful bursts of samples, bouncy backbeats and live instruments within the sound.
Analog synthesis is also relied upon heavily, with the Prophet ’08 synthesiser being the go-to for all tracks. Producers such as Gold Panda, Shlohmo and James Blake have become strong inspirations for his distinct sound.
Together the group released multiple videos online but as they grew older the members of the group drifted. Although still close, the group continue to release their own solo material.
Since moving to Guildford to study music production Brunell has started to take his music a lot more seriously.
Lsow has been producing since the age of 13 starting on the software Mixcraft, playing in simple melodies and recording vocals but took it seriously from 17 years old.

Since his time on Soundcloud Lsow has released 4 albums: Arter Adams – The Chill of Some (2015), Ken Lee’s – A Waters Colour (2016), Ken Lee’s – Rotter (2016), Lsow’s – Ships (2016), as well as releasing smaller beat tapes on Bandcamp and producing 13 individual tracks with features from other artists on his own playlist ‘Release’ on Soundcloud.

Lsow), HOP – Mean Muggin (Prod. Lsow), HOP – Southern (Prod. Lsow), HOP – Raid (Prod. Lsow), all in which received thousands of views. (House Of Pharaohs YouTube)
