Prepare for punk-infused dancehall, poignant lyricism and underground Dub in this incredible line-up curated by Saffron, featuring Bristol-based producer Grove, genre-bending rapper TaliaBle and gritty pop artist Tlya X An.

GROVE

Meddling together elements of punk-infused dancehall, jungle, bass and pop, Grove is an autodidactic Bristol-based producer and vocalist with a constantly morphing sound. Grove’s noise concoctions come from the ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ energies that reside within, filtering them through a sensuous & rave-a-licious lens, with lyrics inspired by political angst, queer euphoria, & the toppling of the Edward Colston statue in the city of Bristol.

TALIABLE

To experience a world full of surplus wonder, surrealism and raw stories is to watch rising London-based, Dysfunctional Rapper and Visual Artist, TaliaBle who is prized as the go-to underground circus. TaliaBle entered the music scene September 2019 with a tongue twisted in poignant lyricism, beats crafted with an alternative tone by TaliaBle’s wizard in crime and producer: Karl Brinaj, topped off by a gritty, theatrical performance where costumed characters would emerge and illustrate lines in the songs. From Map Cafe to VFD, TaliaBle then championed a headline show at Late At Tate (Tate Britain) just three months into her music endeavours. Since then she has performed at the likes of Corsica, Pickle Factory and KeepHush.

TLYA X AN
