MARDEN HILL

Marden Hill are the band about whom the term ‘Trip Hop’ was first coined. They’e the link from Acid Jazz to trip Hop and pretty much every other groove based genre since. Mark Daniels, the instigator and maverick driving force of the laziest and sexiest band in history.

URBAN FARMERS

A pseudonym of the DJ and  producer Ralph Lawson.

Ralph holds the honour of playing the first ever record at Back to Basics, and there is a very good chance that he will play the last if that fateful day ever rears up it’s ugly head. Resident dj for 9 glorious years now, the success and vibe of Leeds’ best ever club may be just one factor that has prevented Ralph from being mentioned in the same breath as some of the big-money djs of today. That he has not got a single commercial bone in his body is another. Preferring to play one set per night in a club in order to give that club his all, Ralph was never going to get the same national exposure as those other djs. But Ralph is no other dj. Don’t ask us, ask Bill Brewster who recently described Lawson as Britain’s best kept secret.

WLADIMIR M

Wladimir M founded Eevo Lute Muzique together with his friend Stefan Robbers. He was sometimes described as the conscience of the label and its artists, something he expressed in poems, lyrics and art. Together with Stefan Robbers he created this and many other electronic compositions.

MARC WOOLFORD

A man of many guises, Marc Woolford has been involved in countless productions for Afro Art, among them Ballistic Brothers, Black Jazz Chronicles and perhaps most memorably in collaboration with Paul Murphy (see the massive ‘Jazz Rooms’ 12″). Woolford’s Soul Drummers project has its roots in ancient rhythms, from which contemporary elements are developed to create something entirely new.
