AND still plenty more to be announced ….
First up, the latest addition to this year’s line up, we’ll be joined by the legendary UK electronic duo, GROOVE ARMADA, who’ll be dipping into their back catalogue with what is guaranteed to be an unmissable DJ set.
We’ll also be welcoming the awesome FLOATING POINTS to Saturday’s bill for a very special 3 hour long extended set. Producer/DJ/Musician Sam Shepherd AKA Floating Points has been on the scene since his first release in 2009 and delivered on his potential last year with his debut LP “Elaenia”, one of the finest albums of the year. Not only a talented producer, his reputation as an incredibly gifted DJ is renowned, which is why we’ve invited him to take to the stage for 3 hours this November!
With her debut album Nothing’s Real just released, English singer SHURA will be taking her soulful electronic sound to the RDS. We can’t wait to catch her perfectly formed pop tracks like ‘What’s It Gonna Be’ and ‘Touch’ which was co-produced with Joel Pott from Athlete and has clocked up over 20 million views and counting.
American hip-hop musician Michael Volpe, better known as CLAMS CASINO has produced tracks for ASAP Rocky and Mac Miller becoming one of the most enigmatic and sought after producers in hip-hop. Instead of producing for others, this time the favour was returned with an all star cast appearing on his debut studio album 32 Levels, released in July of this year, and features, amongst others, A$AP Rocky, Joe Newman (Alt-J), Lil B, Kelela and Vince Staples.
London MC NOVELIST has been nominated for Best Grime Act at the 2014 MOBO’s as well as a nomination for the BBC Sound of 2015. With regular plays on radio stations including Rinse FM and BBC Radio 1Xtra and having featured on Skepta’s much anticipated album ‘Konnichiwa’ – we can’t wait to catch one of the fresh faces of grime.
Next up, it’s Austrian electronic duo KLANGKARUSSELL – their big break came from their massive hit ‘Sonnentanz’ which reached the top 10 in six countries. Since their debut album Netzwerk in 2014, they’ve even turned their hand to remixes for Laura Mvula and Max Manie.
Newer to the scene, but not to be underestimated, 22-year-old Jordon Alexander aka MALL GRAB is breaking all kinds of moulds on his rapid rise to recognition on the world stage. Expect original house and techno material from this energetic newcomer.
