Tokyo producer and DJ Sapphire Slows comes to London to share her atmospheric music. Her dreamlike vocals float over synth-drenched tracks. Inspired by lucid dreams and an aptitude for crate digging, Sapphire Slows has made a mark in the Japanese music scene.
It’s no question why Red Bull Music Academy selected Slows to play at their 10th anniversary broadcast in Tokyo. If you’re prepared to be transported to another dimension in a slo-mo haze, you won’t want to miss this night at The Waiting Room.

Originally making music as Roger Sellers, the silky electronic pop producer became Bayonne at the end of 2015, releasing single Spectrolite, which Stereogum praised for its, “Soft, delicate sound like Youth Lagoon or Washed Out”.
He followed up his initial offering awith Primitives, an album with a swirling loop of keyboards, clunking percussion, and heartache soaked vocals. Think a mixture of Caribou, Gold Panda and a sprinkling of Animal Collective.
Playing this February date at London’s The Waiting Room, get ready to fall under his spell of glorious synthetic chillwave.

His Clancyness is a band formed by former A Classic Education frontman Jonathan Clancy as a solo project, but which quickly evolved into a full time band featuring Giulia Mazza (also of A Classic Education), Jacopo Beta and Nico Pasquini.
The debut album, Vicious, came out on FatCat Records in 2013. It’s a dense and detailed record, both lyrically and musically, with several layers piling up and permeating each other, post punk and kraut rock rhythmic patterns, glam rock mixed with folk songwriting and noise.
