Michael Davies has fast become one of London’s most exciting young selectors, having started out with just a pair of turntables in his bedroom aged just 14.

The 27-year-old serial crate digger, known as Miche, now finds himself in high demand, appearing at top spots in both the UK and into the rest of Europe, His deep knowledge and enthusiasm for collecting and playing records means he holds close ties to institutions such as Mr Bongo, BBE and more.

Thanks to his extensive collection, which spans from modern soul, disco, deep house and beyond, He has hosted slots on Worldwide FM, Brussels’ Kiosk Radio and Red Light Radio, and has also appeared at festivals such as Gilles Peterson's We Out Here festival.

Miche’s talent for bringing in global audiences doesn’t stop there, either. As Head of Programming at London’s illustrious Spiritland audiophile venues, and the basement club SUPERMAX, his eclectic sets always sees the music enthusiasts' haunts packed to the rafters.

Miche’s most avid and inspiring project to date, however, is his reissue label Discs Of Fun and Love. Launched in 2019 with his friend Frederika with the idea to focus on discovering forgotten gems, the label’s first four releases received great praise from music heavyweights, including Gilles Peterson, Jeremy Underground, Mafalda and Hunee.

Medlar's musical world is a diverse one, and for over a decade he's established himself as a key character in the London scene – most of his hours are spent making, buying, playing or talking about music.

Engineer at the cult Peckham Cuts Dubplate Shop, Rye Wax staffer and musician Medlar is a DJ who can dig into the past and call upon proto-house oddness, post-rave madness and dub-weighted lushness, then link it with contemporary cuts that are equally special.

He makes music that is just as untethered to time and tempo, meaning his productions take in anything from deep and Detroit to acid or downtempo – post-disco flavoured grooves that brim with synth colour and authentic cosmic energy.

Brighton’s Tech Support is destined for big things.

The mild-mannered DJ and producer, known as Ned Dickinson to his friends, already finds himself caught up amongst some of the most talented artists and selectors of the moment, and deservingly so.

At just 21, there are a stack of EPs on labels from the UK to the U.S. bearing Tech Support’s name. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find equally impressive work under long forgotten aliases.

On top of his 12” releases found in the likes of Juno and Piccadilly Records, Tech Support’s digital presence sees him racking up over 100,000 views on esteemed Youtube dance channel Houseum, alongside the likes of Folamour, Baltra, and Lone. His soundcloud reaches listeners in four different continents.

One morning in 2018, having already received considerable DJ support from the likes of Black Loops, Laurence Guy, and Late Nite Tuff Guy, Ned opened his laptop to discover a video his track ‘Friends, played by Dan Shake at Lost Village festival,’ blowing up the Identification of Music Group on Facebook.

The first of the Big Things™ had arrived.

Despite the vigorous work ethic, there is a vein of irreverence that runs through everything the artist does, from the official release of his biggest track to date, flippantly titled That Record With Friends On It, to his social feed of expertly curated communist memes, Tech Support’s attitude is at once industrious and laid-back, his mixes: effortless and intricate.

Regular three hour radio shows on Brighton’s numerous stations keep Ned’s record bag deep and his creative mind always ticking over with new ideas. Equally comfortable deep in disco groove or deftly joining the dots between sonic obscurities like darkwave and italo, it’s his club sets that allow him to fully express himself. Nothing is off limits.

Preferring longer sets, often as long as the club will allow, a Tech Support DJ set touches every wall of the musical sphere at once, flattening genres against each other and projecting them onto the dancefloor through the unmistakable prism of a DJ who truly loves what they do.

Whether it’s slack-jawed euphoria or a mind-melting bewilderment, the emotions run high throughout, manifesting themselves as a sea of unshackled limbs, and as soon as you try to predict what genre, what country, or even what dimension, Tech Support is sending you to next, well, that’s when he’s got you where he wants you.
