SCORCHER / IRONIK
Scorcher (real name Tayo Jarrett) is a grime MC and producer from North London. He began his journey by working his way through the underground ranks, forming 'The Movement’ crew in 2006 alongside Ghetts, Wretch32 and Devlin . This was a group of like-minded lyricists who collaborated together to practice their trade together.

Ironik (James Christian Charters) born 18 January 1988 is a British musician, DJ and rapper. His genre of music varies from R&B, grime and hip hop.
Andy Carroll first started DJing in and around Liverpool in the early eighties, his passion for music and appetite for several genres, not to mention an ability behind the hallowed turntables is the reason he is as popular and relevant today.
In his early days Andy played alongside numerous up and coming bands, including PigBag, The Icicle Works and Teardrop Explodes, delivering an eclectic mix of Roxy Music/ Bowie/ T-Rex combined with punk/ new wave/ new romantic and goth. His unique understanding of music, no matter where it rots were, made him one of the UK's most popular DJs. His ability to effortlessly mix genres is something that still sets him apart from many of his peers today. Whilst 'Balearic' was sweeping the trendier clubs in the south, Andy's philosophy of playing “good” music was making quite a name for himself in the north; along with DJ partner at the time Mike Knowler he would integrate popular city anthems of the time with Francoise K remixes of The Smiths and obscure dubs of New Order.
For over a decade DJ Samir has built a reputation through his ability to read and entertain a crowd, no matter what the event. From big room house venues to intimate private parties, he knows exactly what to play and when.

Since then he has become an integral party of the island's party scene, he is one of the go-to guys for the rich and famous that throw lavish villa parties, trusting him to entertain their VIP guests, effortlessly meeting their musical expectations. You can also hear him playing on many of the island's cooler beaches.
