Welcome to the Moonshine Sessions! Gigantic is passionate about music and, together with our partners Alchemistic Records, we bring you live performances from the world’s most exciting acts.

The Moonshine Sessions are recorded live in the heart of Nottingham, well known for its fertile creative soil producing a wonderfully diverse music scene rich in homegrown talent whilst also attracting the very best performing acts from near and far.

We invite our artists whilst on tour to come to ROFL Audio for special one-off shows, plus showcase the very best local musicians to take advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities, to capture an intimate and revealing performances which shows just what makes them so unique and impressive.

This week, we are delighted to have local hero Benjamin Zięć in the studio. Having first risen to the fore working with such tremendous Nottingham acts as Zenith, The Afterdark Movement, Origin One plus his electronica monkier of Trekkah, Zięć has now struck out as a solo artist to explore a more natural sound.

Drawing on the rough edge of folk, rasping blues and even the power of grunge, Zięć initially worked entirely on his own to cement his status as one of the cities premier songwriters. Before entering the studio he recruited his very own band The Rarebreeds, has just dropped his stunning debut EP ‘Fallen Leaves’ which attracted the attention of BBC Music to feature in an Introducing gig.

We are very pleased to have Benjamin Zięć in the studio, teaming up with Stacy McMullen to play folk classic ‘Dirty Old Town’ and his own track ‘Sailing Out’.
