Chad Valley are the personal outpourings of one Hugo Manuel, the balearic-inclined vocalist of Oxford's Jonquil and founder member of the Blessing Force collective.

Taking a more electronic approach to sunset vibes, Hugo has made quite a splash this past summer. In his short 25 show career he's already played in Dublin, Paris, Budapest, Belgrade and Istanbul, been a big smash at In The City and supported the likes of Amiina, Mountain Goats and Foals. His music has been on every blog you can think of from Gorilla vs. Bear to Pitchfork's Forkcast, the latter of which has featured him three times in recent months and at one point in late October was the fourth most blogged about artist on the planet.

He's enjoyed a host of radio plays across the BBC and had his debut BBC session recorded for Huw Stephens' show in January 2011.

Chad Valley's debut EP is out on Service's US imprint Cascine (USA / UK / JP / Scan) and French label Maman (EU) and a follow up is slated for release this coming Spring in UK, US and Japan.

An enigma of individuality, Danielle "Danz" Johnson is her own sound. Fueled by an obsession with music stemming back to growing up in the Catskills of New York, music has always been her mainstay. Danz joined the NYC music scene at 18 as a DJ and Promoter whilst going to Hunter College. After a few years in NYC, Danz took a hiatus to Tampa, Florida where she began teaching herself to create music. The result was Computer Magic – a solid mesh of space-like dance beats and personable lyrics. Danz returned to New York and started performing live. Computer Magic to date has released 3 full length records in Japan on P-vine & Tugboat Records, the last of which "Mindstate" making it to #1 on the Japanese Electronic music charts. She has released 6 EPs worldwide, and will be releasing her US debut full length record later this year produced by Claudius Mittendorfer.

New Shack is a darkwave duo from Provo made up of Eric Robertson and Catherine Leavy. Together they create a unique mix of retro analog synth instrumentals and dreamy pop vocals that carry dark and abstract lyrics. The two started collaborating while Leavy lived in Germany and their entire EP was created via virtual sound exchange. Released by We Are The Future Records last year, the EP was immediately picked up by blogs and playlists including BIRP, Indie Shuffle, and V Music Australia. New Shack will release their first full-length album, Shadow Girl, on June 12th. All of New Shack's music can be found on iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, and Bandcamp, and the band has several music videos on YouTube. New Shack's live performances will also feature the talents of Severin Bozung and Madelyne Boyer.
