Dee Byrne’s quintet Entropi has been steadily developing its own dynamic band sound since its beginnings in 2010. Placing a high importance on improvisation, Dee’s compositions allow breathing space for depth of communication and interaction between the band members. Juggling order and chaos, composition and improvisation, the group takes listeners on a journey with compelling group interplay, strong themes, open-ended improvisation, dark grooves and interweaving melodic textures. Entropi’s second album Moment Frozen was released on Whirlwind Recordings in September 2017.
Founded in 2012, Leeds-based trio Voronoi started out by straddling contemporary jazz and heavy metal. They are now a brutally dark, synth driven, sci-fi themed experimental rock goliath. Voronoi’s second album Robots As Menace was released in March 2018.
