Hollick is half of No Bad Days, the label he runs with Gabriel Szatan. The duo share a love of "prettiness, colour and melody" in music. That's what first led them to crystallise their friendship and create their label, party and sometimes radio show all under the same name.

His taste knows no bounds, and his sessions at Spiritland King's Cross are certainly memorable so his Spiritland Royal Festival Hall debut promises to be another great night.

Born Cheating is a London-based DJ, founder of record label Tiff's Joints, and part of the city's vibrant Touching Bass community.

Having been obsessed with music from a young age, it was discovering hip-hop in his teens that led him to try his hand at DJing. Style wise, he selects from a wide spectrum of sounds, cultures and eras – equally at home mixing Herbie Hancock into Sandra de Sá as he is blending more contemporary dancefloor cuts.

Tiff's Joints is an extension of his own tastes, categorised only as releasing "wild music", "human music" or more specifically, "music you have to hunt down with a bow and arrow".
