Isa GT is a Colombian producer and DJ working out of East London’s electronic music scene. Drawing influences from Cumbia, house, B-more club, Champeta, Baile funk, Kuduro – and everything in between – she has become a go-to in London for contemporary Latin music.

She has done guest vocals and co-production with Toy Selectah, Joao Brasil, Dutch Rhythm Combo, Crookers, and In Flagranti to name a few, and has toured with M.I.A. on festivals.

She started her own label- Etoro.as – to support a new generation of Latin sounds.

LONESOME LEASH
w/ Local support TBA

Lonesome Leash (aka Walt McClements, a touring member and collaborator of Dark Dark Dark, and also a member of punk orchestra Why Are We Building Such a Big Ship? and New Orleans’ Panorama Jazz Band) is releasing his debut album, I am No Captain, on January 1. It’s a freaky, folky album that should appeal to people who like their Decemberists/Mountain Goats cut with a little Gypsy flavor. He recently revealed the first single, “Ghosts,” and we’ve now got another album cut for you, the appropriately titled “Feeding Frenzy,” which is making its premiere in this post. You can stream both of those below.

more about DJ APT ONE…

DJ Apt One is and has been on the forefront of many important movements in dance music over the last ten years. With his signature funk-influenced style, he has left his mark across the musical spectrum.

He was a part of the multi-genre style of DJing that catapulted his adopted Philadelphia to the pinnacle of the DJ world in the early 2000s. His years of seasoning as a DJ have seen him play all styles imaginable all across the US and Europe.

As a part of the duo RCMP, his work foreshadowed the emergence of Nu-Disco before the genre even had a name.

He is an internationally renowned disco edit-maker, appearing on compilations alongside the likes of Todd Terje and Tom Moulton. He has officially remixed global stars as diverse as Wiz Khalifa and Gregor Salto.

He is also is one of the OGs of “Moombahton” – the polyglot global EDM movement that saw DJ Apt One find fame on the BBC, NPR and elsewhere along with pioneers Dave Nada, DJ Sabo, Dillon Francis and more.

He is also a founder and executive of Young Robots Records.

See ya on the dancefloor.
