Chad Valley
Chad Valley
Chad Valley are the personal outpourings of one Hugo Manuel, the balearic inclined vocalist of Oxford’s Jonquil and founder member of the Blessing Force collective.

Taking a more electronic approach to sunset vibes, Hugo has made quite a splash this past summer. In his short 25 show career he’s already played in Dublin, Paris, Budapest, Belgrade and Istanbul, been a big smash at In The City and supported the likes of Amiina, Mountain Goats and Foals. His music has been on every blog you can think of from Gorilla vs. Bear to Pitchfork’s Forkcast, the latter of which has featured him three times in recent months and at one point in late October was the fourth most blogged about artist on the planet.

He’s enjoyed a host of radio plays across the BBC and had his debut BBC session recorded for Huw Stephens’ show in January 2011.

Chad Valley’s debut EP is out on Service’s US imprint Cascine (USA / UK / JP / Scan) and French label Maman (EU) and a follow up is slated for release this coming Spring in UK, US and Japan.
Sabri
Sabri
Sabri, meaning patience in Arabic, is a solo project and first name of New York artist Sam Sundos. This project, described by Sundos, is a celebration of the crossing of genre and medium. Pulling references from classic artists the Velvet Underground and the Stone Roses to more contemporary artists like Frank Ocean and Kanye West, Sundos also takes a page from the Downtown ‘81 era New York scene incorporating visual and performance art into consideration while searching for direction in this new work.
‘Oh Honey’ is the first release from Sabri and highlights the foundation of what the project stands for: an embrace of modern culture and technology while maintaining the craft of evergreen songwriting and artistic expression as its driving force. Sundos collaborated with friend & LA producer Andrew Miller to fully bring the project to life, with the pair creating and completing ‘Oh Honey’ at their home studios on opposite coasts, sharing files and edits via email.
According to Sundos, "It’s a project from a big, brown man accepting his past, acknowledging the present and remaining hopeful for the future.” Though pessimism may come natural, optimism is slowly taking hold of the artist, and he hopes to share that growth to help light up the world around him.
