Jelly Cleaver

Jazz // DIY Punk

Jelly Cleaver is a guitarist, producer and singer-songwriter based in South London. With an eclectic taste in music, Jelly is heavily involved in both the jazz and DIY/punk scenes in London. She’s also an activist, and a strain of political dissent runs through her music. Her latest single ‘VI II V’ has been premiered on CICAS® artist, Moses Boyd‘s show on BBC 1xtra, as well as being played on Jazz FM and Worldwide FM. Through Tomorrow’s Warriors, an organisation whose alumni include Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective and Nubya Garcia, she met the other musicians in her band, many of whom are talented composers and band leaders in their own right.

“I’ve been listening to VI II V on repeat… Jelly has a totally unique way of threading Jazz, folk and psychedelic influences.”
Tina Edwards | Worldwide FM/Supreme Standards

HTD (Having Technical Difficulties)

Hip Hop // Drum & Bass // Jungle

Having Technical Difficulties trio Cleo Savva, George Chater, James Buchanan are the latest artists breaching genre barriers to amalgamate a plethora of influences mixing acoustic and electronic elements that create a distinctive London sound. Lyically fuelled, bass driven and styled with a potent message from start to finish. HTD have a signature London sound that has all the markings of LTJ Bukems long lost love child.

Vedina Rose & The Pirates
