South Central Described variously as: a Post Glitch; Indie/Electro; Dance-Rocktronica band. Based in Brighton UK these producers work autonomously or with a band live and have carved out a niche converting new Indie Rock tracks to the dance floor.

The track which starts off, “If you’re talking the hardest...” doesn’t even have a name, but can regularly be heard seeping out of kids’ mobile phones, as well as beating out of the radio thanks to the likes of Tim Westwood, DJ Limelight and Big Ryde.
Dawn Upshaw (born July 17, 1960 in Nashville, Tennessee) is a world-renowned American soprano described as "one of the most consequential performers of our time" by the Los Angeles Times.

Jangly drum machine-indie-punk-pop trio from Gothenburg Sweden, the greatest city in the universe. Jolly good music to listen to when you want to "take in".
