Slow Place Like Home is the brainchild of producer/musician Keith Mannion. Based in the forests of Donegal, in the North-West of Ireland, to date Mannion has released a series of EPs and his Debut Album ‘Romola’ to critical acclaim, his live set has been described by the BBC as “the sound of restful energy”.
Carriages formed in 2013 to bring together Harry Bookless’ sound beats and Aaron Page’s songwriting and vocals. Carriages quickly released the Carriages EP and Roots/Significant Landscapes single and performed at numerous venues and festivals throughout Ireland. 2015 saw Carriages taking a step back from the live front to focus on recording new material and as a result released their third single ‘Like a Child’ in early 2016. Lyrically the song deals with lost love and an inability to move on while the repeated falsetto hook captures the futility of longing for distant memories.
Bantum has been making a name for himself as one of the leading Irish electro acts over the last 6 years. Having already released 5 EPs in the space of 2 years, Bantum went on to release the critically acclaimed “Legion” album in 2012, followed by a string of remixes for the likes of LeGalaxie, Come On Live Long and We Cut Corners, to name a few. 2016 has seen a collaboration with Irish/Sierra Leonean vocalist Loah called “Take it” get even more widespread acclaim in anticipation for the next release. Expect to hear some upcoming new material during his energetic live sets.
