DEFSYNTH does SHEFFIELD TRAMLINES Fringe

deflines2

You see electronic music that WE know is hugely diverse and wonderful. When given the opportunity to curate a Tramlines Fringe event, we really went out of our way to gather together people to show you exactly that.

Each of the acts on this bill has something unique of their own to offer you. It’s not a synthwave event, it’s not a synthpop event, it’s not a minimalwave event it’s electronic music in all its astonishing varieties.

That’s not to say that there aren’t elements of all those things in these acts, far from it, there’s more than one synthpop act or two on the line up but there’s so much more as well.

What’s more is this event is free entry, no charge. We truly feel this is the most diverse line up of electronic music the UK has seen for decades, if not ever.

Come along on the 22nd of July to The Mulberry Bar and Venue and experience:

Broken Piano – A stunning very fresh solo female act astonishingly mixing Rnb vocals with Edm production tinged with new wave elements.
Flavolous – A hugely impressive artist that knows no boundaries pushing himself further and further in his investigations into all manner of experimental and edm genres.

Icicle Boy – Wonderful wonderful synthpop that is so ridiculously catchy you’ll be singing the songs for weeks.


Jan Doyle Band – Hugely flamboyant dark electro that verges on the synthpop on occasion, renowned for a stunngly exciting live show you won’t forget.
Keeper of Bees – Subtle and sublime, beautful heartfelt melodic ballads. These songs seem to have the ability to stop time.


Martin Christie (AKA Poet and the Loops ) – Unique mixture of folk tones and cutting edge technology. Lyrically mixing humour, politics and emotion.
PARK FIRES – Leeds’ finest synthpop act. This female duo are making huge waves with their addictive harmonies and CHVRCHES beating electro. They went down a storm at our City Electronic event last year.

Pulselovers – Krautrock inspired electronica from motorik drones to the most human and beautifully instrumented songs.


Shamanka Phoenix – Brilliant new music mixing Balearic beat, Kraftwerk and Berlin, 70s electronica, Trip-Hop and Nordic Noir with a considerable poetic edge, this event celebrates the release of her debut EP.

We Are UX – LASER PUNK! Brilliantly energetic reverberant dance with powerful performances

Vieon – Astonishing prog synth space rock that would be the envy of Vangelis or Jean Michelle Jarre any day. Expect video projection delights, smoke and lasers as we journey through space with them!

Voi Vang – Sheffield’s finest pop star in years! Amazing singer songwriter with genius on stage dance moves, more hooks that a fisherman’s tackle box.
