Nambucca and Drum & Monkey present a night of Hungarian electronica with headline act Žagar and support from electronic/downtempo newcomers Belau. Žagar are one of the most significant bands to come out of the burgeoning Eastern European electronica scene. The five piece have received staunch support from the likes of BBC 6Music’s Don Letts, Amazing Radio and Future Music, whilst also being nominated for ‘Best Hungarian Act’ at the MTV European Music Awards following the success of their hit single ‘Wings of Love’. Support comes from promising Hungarian four-piece, Belau, whose debut single ‘Island of Promise’ was in Deezer Hungary’s ‘Top Hits of 2015’ and appeared in HBO’s TV series ‘Aranyelet’.

In his first ever London show, Estonia’s finest, NOËP descended on the iconic Lexington to support his newest single ‘Rooftop’, after being championed online by Indie Shuffle and Dancing Astronaut. Not allowing the evening to be marred by the earlier misfortune of losing all his equipment in transit, NOËP flawlessly performed all of his catalogue, including hit singles ‘Move’, ‘Golden’ and crowd favourite ‘Rooftop’. His infectious energy radiated through the crowd as everyone bounced in unison to get the foundations of the venue shaking.
The accomplished four-piece delivered a grandiose set of material including the latest single, ‘Same High‘, which was featured by Red Bull this week. Having picked up support so far from BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Noisey, Dummy, The 405, Dork and Clash, and with a collective live CV including Blur, Friendly Fires, Rosie Lowe, Ghostpoet and Questlove, the expectation was high. The band leader Ed Begley showcased his impeccable voice whilst switching between instruments in a captivating fashion, and by the close of the set we were more than pleased to have our expectation met by a truly timeless audio/visual performance.
