♬♬ Lit FM ♬♬
Lit FM is a 7-12 piece Jazz-Funk/Soul-Dub/Psychedelic Jungle group that will absolutely blow your mind! Initially a jam band, their sound was initially influenced by jazz-funk and soul, and later synergized with elements of hip-hop, dub, jungle and psychedelic rock. The result is a musical spectrum which weaves sparkles of many different styles into a rich tapestry of constantly evolving groove, timbre and melody, fronted by award winning Polish jazz singer and pianist Karolina Micor and a unique 4-piece horn section.
Taking cue from artists such as Grateful Dead and Phish, live performances consist of a balanced mix of original songs and live improvisation. There are moments of Portishead blended with Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin with brass and female vocals and King Tubby meets Parliament, whilst always remaining undeniably Lit FM.
♬♬ Selecta Mad Max ♬♬
Tropical bass, zouk bass, dnb, ragga... Coming from a background of soundsystem culture, Selecta Mad Max soon found the connection with ragga and jungle and incorporated these influences into his sets.
A DJ that has always been driven by bass heavy music, Max’s performances highlight the depth of his music collection, with good vocal skills and the ability to switch genres at any moment, not to mention having a bunch of killer dubplates at the ready.
