Bunty AKA Kassia Zermon
Avant – pop songstress and vocal looping pioneer Bunty is also lead singer for UK live dub band Resonators and Quirk-glitch-Folk trio Le Juki. She has performed and collaborated alongside artists such as Kate Tempest, Shlomo, The Wailers and Scroobius Pip to name a few. She has been heralded as ’Brighton’s Rising Star’ by BBC radio 3. Her DIY stance towards music and performance has taken her around the globe playing all the main UK festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown and Secret Garden. She has co- run the Beatabet record label for the last 10 years, self releasing all music as part of a collective. Her latest audio visual album release and UK tour was funded by Arts council England, PRS foundation and PledgeMusic and supported by Battersea Arts Centre, London and SPECTRUM, Brighton Dome.

He has released albums on ECC and Beatabet records. Jules set up and curated a 5 year artistic residency programme in France focused on collaborative writing, where he ran the main recording studio. He also founded the Beatabet collective and label. Outside of music he ran a landscape architecture practice for 8 years and as a visual artist has exhibited in Museum of Modern Art Oxford amongst others.
A studio and stage obsessive, Abraham Moughrabi is a Brighton-based musician, engineer and producer. His credits range from keyboards & sampler with UK dub-reggae group Resonators to songwriting and production with Latin-Grammy award winning artist, Buika. His first foray into solo work with hazy electronics and blissed-out vocals, the Jinn EP drew plaudits from Nick Luscombe (BBC Radio 3, Late Junction) to Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6). A restless collaborator, he’s a co-director of the Beatabet collective, a producer for the European arts network Metahub, and has received support from Arts Council England amongst others for interactive AV installations in the UK, France and Belgium.
