Fringe Magnetic and Tom Challenger's Ma at the Loop Festival

Fringe Magnetic and Tom Challenger's Ma at the Loop Festival

Jez Nelson presents music from two of London's most talented young groups. Ten-piece Fringe Magnetic, led by trumpeter Rory Simmons, have roots in chamber music, folk and gritty New York down-town jazz, while saxophonist Tom Challenger's quartet Ma brings together serene melodies, electronic soundscapes and dub heavy grooves featuring ubiquitous drummer Dave Smith.

These performances were recording during the Loop Collective festival at London's Vortex in February. Loop Collective, which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, has a D.I.Y. approach to performing, promoting and recording music and as a result has become a breeding ground for innovative young musicians.
