About La Loye
While the alt-folk by la loye is often described as lo-fi or unpolished, the project around 26 year-old
Lieke Heusinkveld is filled with hidden details in both sound and word. la loye does not explore the
beaten track of human consciousness, but wanders along the exciting elephant paths, dark sprawl and
beautiful open plains. Just like Elliott Smith, Mount Eerie, Radiohead and Big Thief, Heusinkveld digs
deep in her reserves to give shape to raw emotion with fresh, sometimes very playful angles. At times
oppressive music, but above all beautiful.

About Silver Lake
After meeting each other in the romantic, nocturnal setting of an old Amsterdam pub, Marleen Hoebe and Jesse Koch decided to become partners in life - and later, in music. This became the foundation for the artistic duo Silver Lake. In terms of sound, parallels can be drawn with artists such as Alexandra Savior, Lana del Rey and The Last Shadow Puppets. With a nod to the past but eyes sharply focused on the future, and using modern production techniques hand in hand with old analog equipment, Silver Lake manages to create a synthesis of a vintage, yet contemporary sound.

About Bai Kamara Jr
A warm, funky voice, but just as sober and intimate. The music of Bai Kamara Jr. is a mix of soul, blues, funk, R&B and jazz influences.
Bai Kamara Jr., son of the former Sierra Leone ambassador to Belgium, who grew up in the United Kingdom and has lived in Brussels for over 25 years, is a singer-songwriter who reveals his African heritage in his music. Kamara's involvement in NGOs has led to a collaboration with the world star Youssou N'Dour. Two of Bai's songs were recorded by Spanish director Paco Torres for the film El Vuelo Del Tren (The Magic of Hope). Bai is a brilliant composer who showcases his diverse musical talent on his five albums (Living Room, Urban Gipsy, Disposable Society, This Is Home and Mystical Survivors).
