Biography – Alice Francis
Hits singles SHOOT HIM DOWN and ST. JAMES BALLROOM, on tour with Parov Stelar, on stage with Alicia Keys or Whycleff Jean, and their own world tour … Now, with their second album »ELECTRIC SHOCK« , Miss Francis, mastermind Goldielocks and their fabulous musicians have liberated themselves from pure electro-swing to enhance their own, unique musical profile.
The new sound ranges from finest neo swing to glaring pop to groovy hip hop. Between rap songs, Alice Francis sings, sighs and purrs; she dances swing of the Roaring Twenties and hip hop virtually at the same time. An incredibly postmodern, trend-setting band that confidently says: That’s today’s Jazz!
Biography – Atom Smith
Standing well over 6 feet tall with an ironic bowler hat at a jaunty angle Atom Smith cuts quite a figure in his native Los Angeles, California. As a musician, producer, Dj, remixer, songwriter and audio engineer his first solo EP ‘Flashin Like Gatsby’ was released in 2018 by UK independent record label, Freshly Squeezed.
He has since shown himself a master of the collaboration frequently bringing in friends from not only the local L.A. scene but as far afield as New York, Berlin and London. Guests include burlesque divas, fellow DJs, swing dancers, film-makers, west-coast rappers and even a Hollywood Big Band arranger. Coupled with his sharp-suited beats and full bass sound this inclusive party-in-the-studio approach is what gives Atom his unique spin on vintage remix and electro swing.
Be sure to catch his videos on YouTube! Before that, as the producer behind festival band The Mutator, or as one half of The Gentlemen Callers of Los Angeles, Atom developed and produced almost a dozen releases, including multiple projects for film, television, and performance. Now, as an official remixer for the likes of Disney or platinum-selling Dutch artist Caro Emerald, or soundtracks for Party Like Gatsby his rise shows no signs of slowing.
Atom has also made frequent international DJ appearances at Glastonbury and Swingamajig, his home-turf Burning Man Festival and Coachella. His debut solo album BASS AGE BIG BAND dropped in October 2020 and season one of Sado Psychiatrist can be seen on Amazon.
