Making headlines and chart topping hits since she first emerged in 2008, Little Boots won the respected BBC Sound Of poll and a Brits Critics Choice nomination just a year later. Fusing massive pop hooks onto otherworldly electronic soundscapes, her debut album 'Hands' reached the top 5 in the UK and was quickly certified Gold. Her live show toured worldwide, gaining a reputation for pushing boundaries with groundbreaking instruments the Tenori-on and Laser Harp.

Little Boots went on to found On Repeat Records, releasing her own work and signing and developing up-and-coming talent. In 2017 she collaborated with Jean-Michel Jarre and co-wrote the lead single for his latest record, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic Album.

As a globetrotting DJ, her ties with dance culture are deep and long-running. Since her first white label release 'Stuck On Repeat' (produced by Joe Goddard) and gracing Mixmag's cover, Little Boots has collaborated with dance royalty Maya Jane Coles, Hercules & Love Affair and Simian Mobile Disco. Highlights include her live set for Mixmag Lab (over 1.6m views), curating one of Space's closing We Love party in Ibiza and spinning everywhere from Glastonbury to Valentino's launch at Milan Fashion Week.

Come and see Little Boots play Spiritland-geared music from her cherished collection.

For the past 13 years DJ Amir has been blessed to tour the world extensively. First as one half of the trailblazing DJ duo Kon and Amir and now as boss to his own label 180 Proof Records.

From an early age, Amir’s ears were filled with the warm and colourful sounds of jazz, gospel, soul, and disco coming from his parents' stereo. As a young man, he made the leap from this soulful home and dove head-first into the world of hip-hop the first chance he got. But instead of the clean break he had anticipated, he discovered so much of his parents' classics sampled in the music of his peers. Intrigued, Amir found himself tracing ties through the music — first with light curiosity, soon, tirelessly. This came to be his passion: to map the sonic lineage of hip-hop.

It was kismet that Amir would meet fellow crate digger and kindred spirit Kon in 1996; instantaneously becoming fast friends and collaborators. Beginning with the esteemed underground On Track mix tape series, Kon & Amir have since released twelve compilations, including three volumes of Off Track, the follow-up to the On Track series. Kon & Amir’s expertise has been sought by Shady Records, Pete Rock, Diamond D, and Capitol Records, to name a few.
