Jane Weaver Live at Substance Festival, Hull 2017

2017 was the year when Hull, in the north of England, was the UK's City of Culture. As part of the programme, Jane Weaver performed for Selector at the Substance Festival at Hull City Hall. This track, Did You See Butterflies, is taken from Jane’s 2017 album, Modern Kosmology.

Slow Club Interview and Live Session

The duo Slow club might not have been around for too long but they definitely delivered and here's the prove. The duo formed in Sheffield in 2006, made-up of multi-instrumentalists Charles Watson and Rebecca Lucy Taylor. Taylor has since gone on to form the Mercury-nomiated outfit Self Esteem, win the BBC Music Introducing award and star in the West End of the musical, Cabaret. Here, you can catch Slow Club in conversation for Selector and performing two tracks in the studio.

Hannah Peel Live at Substance Festival, Hull 2017

It's been our honour to have Hannah Peel as a Selector guest many times over the years. After all, there are not many artists you can genuinely call 'unique' but she definitely is! Her solo music weaves synthesisers with classical scoring and sound design that references the links between science, nature and music. She's also produced music for television, film, theatre and dance, including Game of Thrones: The Last Watch.

Hannah was on stage for us at the Substance Festival as part of the Hull City of Culture 2017. This track, Andromeda M31, can be found on Hannah’s 2017 album, Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia.
