Fruit Machine

Part of the Terrace Session series

Born of a desire to return to play and community, the Fruit Machine ethos champions diversity, creativity and free flowing musical exploration.

Through regular DIY improv nights and their digital hub of musical documentation, Fruit Machine celebrates all that is, was and will be about diverse music, resultant of a clash of seemingly disparate identities, people and players.

Bringing together the tight knit cypher craft of hip-hop, the adventure thirst of jazz, the chaotic freedom of punk and the blissful meditation of ambient music, the Fruit Machine family represents the latest coalescence of the label’s regulars.

The Fruit Machine takeover promises a narrative, effortlessly flowing between textural, droned musings on texture and beauty, to dark, driving funk grooves.
