*DJ Switch*

Anthony John Culverwell aka DJ Switch aka Tony '3 Times' – so called for his three back-to-back world DJ championship titles, as well as his three consecutive UK supremacy & team titles – began moving records at the tender age of 11 but has since conquered the world over with his scratching superpowers. From Africa to Bulgaria, China to Denmark, with countless diverse gigs across his homeland of England under his award-winning belt, he hasn't looked back. DJ Switch is a regular guest contributor to 1Xtra, Radio 1 & the BBC Asian Network. From his involvement with the Alternative Dubstep Orchestra, to his own dubstep scratch crew the Brotherhood of Filth, to leading at the forefront of the burgeoning Electro Swing scene, and being recognised as the first DJ ever to play the Proms, with “Concerto for Turntables”, Anthony can turn his hands to anything & everything. He will be gracing the decks at The Jitterbug to perform his unique vintage scratch set


*Josh et le Chat*

Josh Torrent is an accomplished musician and DJ. He worked with many artists such as Ludvig Amadeus, Roxy Rawson and he is also the co-founder of Obey! Noëllie (aka le Chat) is a young photographer that has worked on numerous projects with Josh as a photographer or designer. Their common attraction to all things vintage has inspired them to create the group Josh et le Chat. They are the new residents of the Electro Swing Club (London) created by the infamous Chris Tofu which has allowed them to play alongside big acts such as The Correspondents and The Sweet Life Society.



*Trip for Biscuits*

Trip for Biscuits are a new Electro Swing trio who have been stirring up audiences across the UK and Europe with exciting audio/visual shows, infused with live walkabout sax. TFB have performed at many venues including White Mink (London, UK), Hot Club (Wiesbaden, DE) and Monza (Frankfurt, DE). The trio is made up of Jamko, Das Motz and Maxophone who are The Jitterbug’s very own residents and promoters.
