Luscious, beautiful electronica and acoustic sounds from the North of England. Ten is a mixture of ambient, instrumental and electronic sounds crafted together with the help of Analogue keyboards, Guitars, Various Delay Pedals, Pro tools, MSP MAX, and a String Quartet.

Ben Butler & Mousepad

Excellence as in a cloud of pink TV static spreading over psychedelic gradient skies outside the window of your commuter train, analogical lighting bolts blasting in a rainbow coloured Sabbath which burns into the circuitry of your brain like the soundtrack of an old coin-op beat-em-up designed by a crazed cabal of progressive wizards and bearded Sci-Fi savants.
BB&MP is an unpredictable, fun and musically dense project, both live and on record.
Riotous electro fun.

Matthew Collings

Tiny delicate moments of intimacy and all-consuming noise; the music of British/Icelandic artist Matthew Collings is textural, melodic and often sonically overwhelming. Spanning the vast divide between Steve Reich and Kevin Shields, Collings has already found considerable praise from the international community for his previous releases under the curious moniker Sketches for Albinos.

For his latest projects, under his own name, he is now associated with respected Icelandic label Bedroom Community, and is currently working on an album of solo material produced by Ben Frost. This material has been debuted at solo live shows to a warm response both in the UK and Iceland.
