Madam Voodoo consists of Cass, 7even and Dr G, whose influences stem from electronica from 1990s including psychedelic trance (psytrance), grunge and punk.

The Framed are a 4-piece band from Aberdeen consisting of Glynn McGregor (drums), Gareth Burr (guitars), Steve Ross (rhythm guitar) and Jamie Reid (vocals and bass).

The band have recently recorded their debut EP at Monnow Valley Studios with producer Paul Tipler and mastered it at Metropolis Studios with John Davis.
