Fold are a funk & hip-hop influenced experimental four-piece based in Leeds. They explore the natural rhythms of speech by using samples that also aim to bring to light relevant subjects close to their own hearts and minds. Unlike most forms of sampled music Fold perform everything on stage live in order to preserve a sense of natural groove and unity in line with their funk forebears.

Written as a tribute to an amazing woman called Fannie Lou Hamer, whose efforts helped push through the Voting Rights Act of 1965, both sides of Fold’s new single Two Past Midnight are constructed around her empowering sampled speech. Available for pre-order now the release is out May 4 on limited edition gatefold CD and digital download.

Two Past Midnight follows Fold’s previous singles Detroit Red, a tribute to Malcolm X, and Be Water My Friend, an homage to Bruce Lee – both aired extensively on UK national radio including BBC 6 Music (Gideon Coe, Huey Morgan & Don Letts) and XFM (Dave Rowntree, John Kennedy). A studio album is expected to follow after the summer – details TBC.

Keen to collaborate with like-minded musicians Fold have both remixed and supported the phenomenal Public Service Broadcasting and more recently hip hop northerners Ceiling Demons in support of the charity CALM.

In July 2014 Fold released Human Again – an emergency single in support of wounded civilians in Gaza. All proceeds from purchases of the single were donated to theMiddle Eastern Children’s Alliance (MECA) and Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP).


SAM SLATER In 2014 Sam Slater threw away his clothes, stopped attempting to enjoy the city and split his practice in two. Favouring specifically scraped sound from the internet, or personal field recordings Slater set out to compose exclusively from these polarised sonic sources. Since then his output has seen him perform internationally using only Google Chrome alongside Viennese sound-artist Bernhard Garnicnig – in which a collage of web-sound creates a beat-centric tableau of today’s content whilst simultaneously spending 2014 barefoot, collecting sounds sourced from civil conflict. In 2014 he left his urban Berlin home on foot for the conflicted crags of ex-Yugoslavia and Burma, aiming to find sonics that were singularly his.

He draws influence from the abstracted rhythms of Oneohtrix Point Never, the noise drenched cinematics of Tim Hecker and the sound-as-politics intention of the likes of Mathew Herbert and Bill Drummond. Sam Slater’s continuing study of orchestral and experimental composition and current participation in the European sound-art and noise scene combined with his work on UK Top 10 singles for house act Blonde, create a genre-less, questioning sonic.
