Steering in a new direction from his legendary drum & bass presence, UK artist Mr. L, aka Mr Lefteye, aka Dave Stewart , orchestrates soothing combinations that are the perfect companion for the last bitter late nights before spring.
“Mr Lefteye delivers a narrative driven EP of thoughtful provoking mystique, enriched with a worldwide spread of melodies and sounds to produce an inspired storyline for an as yet unconceived movie.” - Monolith Cocktail
Throw on any one of these downtempo atmospheric tracks and let the mind ponder the possibility of oneness.

Hailing from Japan, the Asian Dub Foundation has had its roots firmly planted in the electronica realm for the past 16 years. While their styles range from hip hop to dancehall, their strong lyrics laced over each track makes their sound unmistakable. Through the years they have collected numerous awards and spotlights across the globe, and have performed in nearly every large festival venue in Europe.
Their latest album A History of Now received mixed reviews – much of their more political messages fell flat for their fans, mainly perhaps because so much is expected of this veteran group. The album did prove that no matter what theme or style that inspires them, their sounds have lasted the test of time and are always powerful enough to move and vibe to.

With a heavy middle eastern influence and a passion for reggae, Zvuloon Dub System has emerged as one of Israel’s, and Europe’s for that matter, best reggae bands. Much like the origins of reggae, their most recent album “Freedom Time” sends strong messages of peace and the end of political strife. The members of this band all share heavy ties to the idea of freedom, including the lead singers own personal journey on foot through the desert – from Ethopia to the promised land referred to as Israel.
