Move, Noise of Art and The Social present a cross border line-up of up and coming Czech and London all female led acts – Giudi, Scarlet Woolfe and Maella – all making their debut appearance at The Social; central London’s revered music commmunty hang-out.

Czech singer Giudi (pictured above) is an artist who blends music with fashion and art. Her electro Alt Pop combines uplifting, sometimes dark melancholic songs with a live and electronic soundtrack; her distinctive vocals managing to be both haunting and melodic. She won the Silver Award for new artist at the 2018 Czech Music Awards. Now signed to the London based label Minimal Surface, Giudi has been recording a new album set for release in February 2020. Her last single, Tribe, a celebration of diversity and inclusiveness in society, made the playlist of  radio stations in the US, Germany, Italy, Holland, France and the UK. The current single, Visions, features a video made in collaboration with Beijing based Taiwanese 3d multimedia artist Veeeky.

Fresh UK Singer/ songwriter Scarlett Woolfe (right)  blends etheral alt pop with disco-punk, electro and trip hop influences. She has already scored chart successes in Europe and worked as a song writer since a very young age with the likes of Jonas Blue and Emily Newman. She is currently breaking out to launch her own new live band, of which this is an extremely early, if not first, gig.

Maella (pictured below) is a Prague born and London bred singer and prolific writer of her own material. Blending her husky but silken vocals and rasping guitars, with experimental production, and a full live band, she is currently studying a post graduate in composition at Tile Yard, Kings Cross,  overseen by Martyn Ware (founder of Human League and Heaven 17). She has just released her new EP Spells and, prior to her move to London in 2016 to study at BIMM, released her debut EP ‘It Is Coming’ under a Prague baused independent label. She has performed at an impressive array of venues including intimate favourites such as The Troubadour, scaling all the way to larger stages such as the O2 Shepherds Bush, Camden Assembly, The Islington, and 229 The Venue. She was the winner of best young singer award in the Czech Republic and her music successfully embraces both rock and electtonic music.

Described as a “polymath” by Time Out, host DJ Ben Osborne is the founder of pioneering music and art organisation Noise of Art, and is a DJ, musician, writer and award-winning creative producer . He plays clubs and festivals internationally, has residencies in London and Prague and has a habit of playing unusual spaces, such as DJing on the top of an exploding BT Tower for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
