--“I say colour outside of the lines. I say colour right off the page. Don’t box me in.” --

Holding fast to this sentiment, ten years ago a group of young creatives from The Weimar set about the task of reforming the electronic music genre. From rolling, gritty/grainy techno through trip-hop to ambient electro and feathery, pristine house; each member of the Giegling Label has approached their respective projects with a consistency and refinement that you seldom find anywhere else. And yet, we have to be very careful in this bio not to box in with words, genres and names, only that which can be truly expressed on the night. That which sits at the fingertips of Konstantin and Dustin.

Alternative / Alternative / Acoustic

"They may be months old, but the Bristol five-piece have been performing together for over seven years. When they were teenagers, they wrote music quietly in their parents’ attics. When they moved to London, they had to pile their furniture to rehearse in their cramped Camden apartment. Soul-searching and scouring their record collections, the band began to introduce the optimism of ’00s pop and ambient music to the introspection of their Radiohead inspired music."
