iNiT plays sultry dancefloor sounds with an electro edge. Cabaret, electronica, rock and Middle Eastern influences fuse into a smokey eyed kaleidoscope. Songs of burlesque, urban angst and lurv are performed with outright audacity, plenty of tongue in cheek but almost always – a grain of truth. Their work entails both the creation of sound and a visual exploration of it. The latter is particularly evident in their colourful live performances. Think Depeche Mode, think Marc Almond, think dry ice and pulsating energy.

Roshi: Born in Wales to Iranian parents, Roshi Nasehi is a singer -writer who presents her own evocative songs alongside sometimes quite radical interpretations of some of the Iranian songs she was brought up listening to. Her songs reflect her origins, influences and experiences in a personal and unique way accompanied by unusual piano or keyboard arrangements, her voice airy and tender but possessed of an inner power. It’s an unusual sound world combining Roshi’s intimate singing style and Dids-Gagarin’s experimental electronic powers and haunting string layers create a unique genre-crossing, exotic, folktronica landscape.

Alex Monk is a musician and producer based in London and is fond of experimentation and improvisation, combining acoustic and digitally processed elements. Subjecting the guitar and found sounds to a variety of analogue and digital processes, Monk’s live improvised performances exhibit past, present and future sonic events. A creation of timeless artefacts akin to the apex of Post-Punk inventiveness, as well as today’s ecclesiastical drone rock.
