James Cullen and Dan Cobb formed TENDER in 2015, as the bedroom project of two flatmates. They self-released a few songs and “Armour” wound up on the front page of Reddit a few hours later (with several hundred thousand plays on Soundcloud). Two years and three EPs later, TENDER now have tens of millions of streams across Soundcloud, Spotify and YouTube and have enjoyed Hype Machine's #1 spot several times with several different tracks. Their debut album ‘Modern Addiction’ is about duality, the unreliable polarity of human magnetics. These are ultimately pop songs, meant to illuminate the ubiquitous but hidden. “We want it to make people connect with each other. We want to evoke emotion. We want people to dance,” says Cobb.
BEFFROI is an electronic duo consisting of Rori & Valentin. Formed in 2015, they released their first single ‘Swim’ through Kitsuné’s Hot Stream compilation. A second single ‘Faint’ — recalls the intensity of Portishead, while tumbling through a midnight realm entirely of its own design as stated by Clash Music – followed in 2016. Turning moody, downcast alternative pop & contemporary beats into a feverish and immersive trip, BEFFROI tells stories about people, their flaws, weaknesses & addictions. Their latest single ‘Jade’, is another fearless slice of teenage angst put to addictive beats ‘n’ pieces.
