The Comet is Coming features MOBO award winner and Melt Yourself Down member Shabaka Hutchings, Danalogue (Dan Leavers) and Betamax (Max Hallett). Some of the words that apply to their awe inspiring form of jazz include: “Futuristic”, “Cosmic”, “Sci-fi”, “Hipster”, “Punk.” Shabaka is back at it again: redefining popular notions of jazz and distorting genre lines but what else would you expect from this classically trained master improviser with a maverick attitude?

Showcasing the best sounds from New Cross, London.”Dazed Digital
Deanna Rodger - Never afraid to tackle the important stuff, from love to feminism to race, armed with an animated style and some of the most beautiful, abstract and yet relatable metaphors you’ll probably ever come across. She even tackled that Lily Allen video for It’s Hard Out Here, and her response was so good Lily thanked her for being “brave” and “eloquent” and “for opening up a discussion” (yeah, that’s right): Deanna is one of the most promising young voices out there.
