OMNION, who describes himself as One-man self-looping-orchestra, is Czech Republic’s award-winning musician, composer, multi-instrumentalist and table player who likes to break conventional genre barriers. Whilst drawing inspiration from ancient sacred music of both the East and the West, he also likes to use current music technology and the interactive visuals of VJ IVT. His track Frozen Tabla won the 1st prize in the Musica Nova 2019 international competition of electro-acoustic music. Apart from performing, he currently teaches Ethnomusicology at the Prague Academy of Performing Arts and the Conservatory of Jaroslav Jezek. https://www.omnion.cz/english

JIMMY PÉ is Slovakia’s up-and-coming producer, co-founder of an independent label called Gergaz, and a ‘broken beat explorer’ whose cut-up electronica is finding its way to a worldwide audience. He has already toured Europe, India and China and is a resident in some of the most popular clubs in Slovakia. As a producer, he can jump into various music territories without losing his signature sound of broken rhythms spiced up by characteristic leaps between melancholy and euphoria. His Fake Fantasy EP won the Radio_Head awards for best Electronic album in Slovakia and he appeared in Forbes’s 30 under 30 of Slovakia. https://linktr.ee/JimmyPe

IAMYANK is a well-established Hungarian artist and producer with an unexpected turn from electronica through classical and post metal to dark cinematic noise-ambient. After a decade of a drumming career in different ska bands, he decided to study music production and became a teacher himself. His first two EPs Cold Summer and City of Nobody, released in 2013 and 2014 respectively, were both successful. His third EP Lost Sounds, released in 2015, was packed with an adventure game titled Adventures of Poco Eco, and won Iamyank several international awards for the game as well as the music. Last year, Iamyank released his second full-length solo album, which has been described as immerse, heavy and heavenly. His music featured in a number of HBO’s series. https://www.iamyank.com/

SECRET CAMERAS are a London based Dark Electro-rock band. In 2017 they released their eponymous debut EP, which was mixed by David Bascombe (Suede, Placebo, Depeche Mode).

Secret Cameras have also been featured on Spotify editorial playlists in France, Germany, Japan and more. Their single ‘The Silence’, released during the 2020 lockdown, was featured on the likes of Music Crowns, Mystic Sons and chosen by Amazon Music UK to be featured on their ‘Best New Bands’ playlist. Secret Cameras are currently recording their 2nd EP, which is due for release in 2023 and will coincide with a UK tour. https://open.spotify.com/artist/5oFsU6sPfnE0GHHjYfSeg3

‘… his music is pure evidence that genre barriers are pointless in music, because music cannot be restrained, contained or tamed in any way.’ Czech Radio about Omnion
