Anglo management are involved with many top artists, but to name a few they are managing Fatboy Slim’s Record Label (Southern Fried), Pete Tong, Tom Staar and Howson’s Groove.

As a founding member of the ever dynamic Moda collective and also head of Moda studios, Tom Staar has played a massive part in creating one of the UK’s most exciting new music brands, alongside Jaymo and Andy George.

Things started to go skywards For Staar when Annie Mac dropped his epic tune Two Tone Simms, from then onwards pretty much every track he makes gains huge Radio 1 support from Annie Mac who has supported his cosmic sound from day one.

With Tom Staar moulding his finely crafted bass around his quirky yet often complex percussion, he gains thousands of daily MySpace plays, bookings at clubs and festivals all over Europe and America, with doing remixes for the likes of Crookers, We Have Band and French Soler all helped him to become one of the most eagerly watched  names on the scene.

Tom’s always wanting to push his sound even further, both on his own and in collaboration projects, this is where Music Gateway comes into play, with Tom Staar looking for a top line vocalists on a couple of his new tracks, his management company (Anglo Management) have signed up to Music Gateway in order to find the vocalists.

With Tom Staar getting bigger by the day this the perfect way for you musicians to get involved and give your music career a kick start. Check out the projects here and start pitching.

With the up and coming producers Howson’s Groove, who are also with Anglo Management, they are set to pave their way through the music scene with their incorporated cinematic soundscapes and expressive instrumentation to create an undoubtedly unclassifiable form of electronic music. Ranging through multiple tempos they mix the nostalgic, fundamental sounds of Garage, House and Post Dubstep with an avant-garde musicality that makes their sound instantly identifiable.

Howson’s Groove DJ sets vary from party to party, gig to gig with no two being the same, making them without a doubt a must see. With their sets ranging from melodic electronica to house party classics and also pushing all the way through into the main room bass music,  these talented producers know how to manipulate the dance floor in any given situation to give the audience a show to remember.

This South East London Duo have been shown much support by respected artists and DJ’s such as Throwing Snow, Robert Louis (Tru Thoughts), Gary Crowley (BBC Radio). With an abundance of new music waiting to be released, there is still a lot of new territory to cover yet for these rising producers.

Howson’s Groove are using Music Gateway to find a song for one of their tracks which compliments the music/style, quirky crossover but are open to options. This is great way for  musicians to show off your talent with this upbeat, chilled out track. Check out the project here!
