Wizard Sleeve is a multimedia arts collective loosely based in Guildford, UK.
Our group is comprised of 8 DJ’s, 2 VJ’s, 1 artist and a soundsystem available for hire. We run fortnightly radio shows on Surrey’s KaneFM 103.7 and Nottingham’s Rogue FM in conjunction with night takeovers spread across the country, an online streamed house party with some of bass musics most exciting up-comers, a small clothing line, a chat & mix series, a free compilation series featuring affiliated acts, and blog following our foray into cutting edge electronic music. We focus primarily on the UK underground dance music continuum but enjoy and play a whole host of influences from LA instrumental hip-hop, reggae, deep house, techno & left field electronica.
We’re working towards a festival stage to be taken around the UK for summer 2013, starting a regular night in collaboration with other promoters in London, and building our audio visual portfolio to help elevate the collective into the wider working world.
