The Comet is Coming are an East London-based trio who soak up a wide range of otherworldly and musical influences - from electronica, funk and psychedelic rock - into their pumping future-jazz sound.

“Our music orbits around ideas of apocalypse, hyperdimensions, out of body experience and an obsession with the macrocosmic mystery and power of the cosmos,” explains Danalogue The Conqueror, who plays analogue synthesisers in the band and has co-produced their albums Prophecy and Channel The Spirits with Betamax Killer, the drummer.

The spiritual trio is made whole by none other than King Shabaka on saxophone, who forced his way into the band three years ago by jumping up on stage to blow the life out of his horn when Danalogue and Betamax performed together as duo Soccer96.

Branko (formerly J-Wow) is the driving force and one of the main producers in Buraka Som Sistema. The Lisbon group released their debut album ‘Black Diamond’ in November 2008 to rave reviews and acclaim from a who’s who of relevant producers, and continued to make waves with sophomore album “Komba” in 2011. As a diagnosed workaholic, when Branko is not touring or in the studio with Buraka, he’s either scouting for new music for his Enchufada label or making beats by himself.

His solo material is not a 180 turn from the Buraka sound, but it’s a freer approach to electronic music. “With Buraka we would start with a rhythm or a beat, but my songs are built with melodies and loops as the starting point. The sound is a little more personal.” He applies almost ten years of research and travelling to his creative output. Operating as the Anthony Bourdain of ghetto dance music, his mission is to expose the world to as much unheard music as possible, focusing on artists who aren’t easily discoverable through the usual channels.

Join us for a very special double headline show of two singer-songwriters from Canada and Northern Ireland.

Wipe away the Sunday night blues with the dulcet tones of Ariel Posen and Gareth Dunlop

Ariel Posen is a singer/songwriter, guitarist and producer from Winnipeg, Canada. A lifelong musician, there are few roles Ariel Posen hasn’t played.

Although born in Winnipeg, Posen spent much of his childhood on the road, traveling from show to show with his musician parents. He began playing guitar at 9 years old, kicking off a career that eventually found him traveling the globe for his own gigs, including shows as a member of the roots-rock band The Bros. Landreth. They won a Juno Award for their debut album, Let it Lie. Several years later, Posen began working on an album of his own, tracking his new songs in the same studio in which his parents once recorded their albums.

How Long marks Posen’s long-awaited solo debut, showcasing not only his chops as an instrumentalist, but his talents as a diverse songwriter, too. The record casts a wide net, moving from rootsy blues to R&B to melodic rock & roll.

“The guitar is the tool to get the music out,” he says. “Always serve the song first. Otherwise, you’re just playing an instrument.”

Gareth Dunlop (born East Belfast) is a singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland who is a multi-instrumentalist, engineer and producer. As a songwriter and artist, Dunlop has a mix of folk and soul music, which can be heard in several films, television shows and commercials.
Dunlop has opened for John Oates, Jeff Beck, the Stereophonics, James Morrison, Imelda May, Snow Patrol, Paul Carrack, Jools Holland, Angus & Julia Stone, Nanci Griffithm, the Steeldrivers and others
“At a time where originality has reached a road block, Gareth Dunlop has managed to find an escape route with a musical approach that is fresh, emotionally charged, and addressing issues that become personal to the listener.” - Linley Hamilton, BBC Radio Ulster
