Fruit Palace presents SMERINS ANTI-SOCIAL CLUB one of the finest underground acts, mashing together elements of funk, swing, rock, drum ‘n’ bass, and ska which has long been firing up festival crowds and gig-goers across the land. Although they’ve made ripples on the radio with releases such as their infamous dub rendition of the Doctor Who theme featuring killer vocals of the late great Tenor Fly, and thrilled fans with the willfully schizophonic self-released Primordial Cordial LP, it’s their enviable reputation as a live act that has long been winning this 8-piece band appearances at the country’s top festivals. +

An eclectic mix of funk, B-boy style grooves and 60s R&B, MOHAWKESTRA are guaranteed to get people moving and shaking. After smashing their debut Fruit Palace set in December we had to invite them back again to launch their brand new single, available on 7”. “Mohawkestra do exactly what their brilliantly clever name suggests…they make up-to- date, break-heavy music in the style of ’60s Hammond/Library icons The Mohawks.” DJ Format +

Singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist MARLON PERCY incorporates soul/reggae, jazz and house into his style of electronic music. He’s the feature lead vocalist on FatLion Hi-Fi’s single ‘Pay Your Way’, which was selected as a ‘Scorcher’ by David Rodigan on BBC Radio1xtra and premiered on SBTV. Come see this highly talented boundary-pushing artist perform at Hootananny for the first time. +

RAMSAY fell in love with DJing at 13, when he first saw someone use two turntables and a mixer, and has been selecting and mixing for dancefloors ever since. He fuses together an eclectic selection covering genres from afrobeat and jazz through to grime and drum and bass to take you on a rhythmical journey. Expect infectious rhythms to keep your feet moving.
