The acts announced so far....

~ The Busy Twist ~

Hailing from London, The Busy Twist are a strong favourite of the TTP's with their heavy and grooving fusion of afro/latin styles with UK Bass music. Much loved for their debut single 'Friday Night' they continue to grow and grow with tours in Columbia and exciting new works/collaborations with artists and labels such as Nidia Gongora and Chongo De Colombia, Palenque Records, Systema Solar and Ghetto Kumbé.
