They bring pulsating hypnotizing synth grooves to the dance floor, but have more in common with German krautrock heroes Can, than disco-obsessed post-punk bands.

4) A pseudonym of a Zagreb, Croatia artist who had his first contact with music at about ten years of age. He annoyed his parents (not to mention teachers in school) with constant slamming, stomping, making noise with the doors, cutlery and all the things that came to his hands.
He started out producing music in late '90s under influence of Pete Namlook, Geir Jennsen, autechre, Move D and many other artists. He was never limited to only one genre which reflected to his production. From chill over experimental to tech kinds of music he was always trying to give his songs a piece of himself. Which can be judged by listening to his works. By dedicating his life to multimedial art, specially music, BronZe could be described as a very creative person. Namely, besides music making, he is spending his free time doing web design, graphical art, songwriting etc. as well as working on realisation of his numerous enthusiastic ideas.
5) A pseudonym of singer-songwriter Paul Handyside was a founder member of eighties indie popsters Hurrah! who released several albums on Kitchenware and Arista records. In the nineties Handyside toured and recorded with friend and Kitchenware label-mate Martin Stephenson. In 2001 Handyside formed alt-country/pop trio Bronze with Ade Evans on drums and Rob Tickell on bass. They released two albums, The statue in the stone in 2003 (The bus stop label) and A common prayer (Malady Music) in 2004.
6) A Hechtel, Belgium band, four young men from the belgian countryside. they make instrumental rockmusic using electric bassguitars, guitars and drums. Sometimes taking you back to the 90's with melodic and often nervous loops and rythms.
