Synthwave & Talkbox with a backdrop of 80s beats. It's Pretty Awesome!
The music of Beckett is inspired by the movie soundtracks and lifestyles of the 1980s. It’s a clear love for the electronic palette of synthesizers, drum machines and studio electric guitars infused with Miami sunsets, L.A Neon and the glamour of 80s fashion.

Brandon is an electronic producer of synthwave / retrowave music – music that aims to capture the iconic sounds of 1980s pop and electronic music, while throwing in a few modern production techniques to create a sound that is nostalgic, yet somewhat fresh at the same time.
The 80s is often defined as being the decade of ‘excess’, and Brandon aims to capture that in his music by fusing bright synth-leads with funky guitar riffs and larger-than-life old-school electronic drums

IVERSEN are an East-London based retro pop project, primarily composed of Josh Iverson & Jonny Royall. Driven by borrowed nostalgia, the films of Nicolas Winding Refn and Bruce Hornsby, Josh’s confessional songwriting speaks of love, lust and the anxieties that lay between, drenched in synth & shimmering guitar. They are joined onstage by Joshua Hart & Jay Sabourin.

Young Empress are a Synthwave duo inspired by movie soundtracks & 80s nostalgia. With a shared love of classic synths, haunting guitars, powerful harmonies & punchy, 80s inspired drums. Bursting with energy this duo has managed to craft their own unique brand of Synthwave.

Let them take you back to those summer nights..
