BIG BOSS MAN - formed in 1998 when three long-time friends Nasser Bouzida, Trev Harding and Scott Milsom, got together to form the (mostly) instrumental based group centred around some furious Hammond and heavy groove action.

SHAKA LOVES YOU - “Dancefloor-friendly party rockers” are just two of the credits awarded to Glasgow duo Shaka Loves You.
“If you don't like these guys, just throw away your ears” - Craig Charles (BBC Radio 2 / 6 Music)
