A$AP mob have made a giant impact on the US hip-hop scene thanks to their grimy rap-vocals, symbol-rich attire and most notable member, A$AP Rocky.
Rocky – together with A$AP Ferg, A$AP Nast, A$AP Ant and DA$H – have the hip-hop industry tied up right now with their hands in fashion, design, music and filmmaking. 

Creating something of a subculture (a mob culture if you like), their reams of mix-tapes, live improvised show recordings and handful of official releases – ‘Hella Hoes’, ‘Trillmatic’ and ‘Xscape’ – have made a massive dent on the dancefloor on both sides of the Atlantic.

Undoubtedly one of the most prolific blues divas performing today, Diunna – who won two of the coveted Grammy Awards at this year’s gala – is an exceptional vocalist worth every øre to see live.

Performing under the name St Vincent, Annie Clark is a unique, cerebral vocalist. The favoured collaborator of the Talking Heads’ David Byrne is an intriguing experimentalist in psych-rock.
