23:00 Bradley Zero (UK)
Bradley Zero, founder of one of the most prominent dance labels of this decade, Rhythm Section International, and host of the NTS radio show of the same name. Bradley Zero inherited both a profession and a sound system from his DJ father, which he used at parties at the beginning of his career. Moving from Leeds to London, Bradley Zero settled in Peckham, an area of the capital favoured by musicians and artists who have turned it into a cultural melting pot. His apartment, studio and the office of Rhythm Section International label are still based there and the free, vibrant and colourful spirit of multicultural South London finds its musical expression within Bradley Zero’s DJ sets and the eclectic catalogue of his label. Bradley Zero began conquering London in 2009 with the Rhythm Section radio show which soon grew into a regular party at one of Peckham's clubs. A year later and it was an important part of London's nightlife. The fame of Rhythm Section led Bradley Zero to the Boiler Room team, where his music taste, flair and knowledge of the electronic underground helped the London DIY project become an internationally famous brand. He left Boiler Room in 2015 to focus on his DJ career and label which have both since flourished.

20:00 Toy (UK)
London's TOY borrow from shoegaze, Krautrock, and classic psychedelia to make pulsating, absorbing music. After laying down the foundations of their hypnotic style with their self-titled 2012 debut, the band took that sound in different directions: 2013's Join the Dots added a crystalline sheen, while 2016's Clear Shot introduced elements of folk and film scores. By the time they released 2019's self-produced Happy in the Hollow, TOY proved themselves to be experts at making eclectic, atmospheric sounds. Vocalist/guitarist Tom Dougall, guitarist Dominic O'Dair and bassist/vocalist Maxim Barron formed TOY in 2010, after the end of their previous band, Joe Lean & the Jing Jang Jong. The group's initial lineup also included keyboardist Alejandra Diez and drummer/vocalist Charlie Salvidge, a former member of the punk band Mudfite. Soon after forming, TOY moved from Brighton, England, to London, and signed to Heavenly Records. The label released the band's 2011 debut single, Left Myself Behind, in a limited edition of 100 copies that sold out in a day. The following year, they issued the singles Motoring and Lose My Way before releasing their self-titled debut album. Recorded with producer Dan Carey in two weeks, TOY appeared in September 2012. To make their second album, 2013's Join the Dots, the band reunited with Carey but spent twice as long refining their hypnotic psych-pop. For their next project, TOY collaborated with Bat for Lashes' Natasha Khan and Carey as Sexwitch, whose self-titled debut album arrived in 2015. TOY continued to expand their horizons with their fourth album, Happy in the Hollow. Recorded at their home studio as well as Carey's Studio B, it delved into post-punk and acid folk and marked the band's first self-produced music. Tough Love Records released the album in January 2019.
