One of the most eclectic minds in electronic music today, Kieran Hebden’s Four Tet moniker is responsible for a string of critically acclaimed releases. Widely regarded as one of today’s great musical voices, his music feeds from diverse genres including jazz, folk, soul, rock, hip-hop and reggae to create something that is entirely his own. German production duo Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann, better known as Âme, are pioneers of a future wave of new electronic music. The Innervisions co-founders have been turning out influential music for over a decade and with Âme at the helm, there’s no doubt Basoa is in safe hands.
Founder of British indie label Phantasy Sound, Erol Alkan is without doubt one of the most influential DJ’s of the last two decades. With his London club Trash he changed the perception of electronic clubs, mixing genres and formats. With energetic sets that mix rock, electro, house, techno and disco, his set is sure to be a festival highlight. Neuroscientist Sam Shepherd started composing in his free time while studying for his doctorate and consequently became the man behind Floating Points. Quickly becoming one of the most lauded names in his field, Shepherd is a master in merging soul, hip-hop, jazz and house.
Whether on his own or as one half of acclaimed DJ duo The 2 Bears, Joe Goddard has graced the booth of practically every sought-after club night in the UK. Best known as a member of Hot Chip, he’s responsible for some of the most instantly recognizable synth pop of all time and is sure to offer one of the standout sets of the weekend. Also confirmed are Londoner Mike Green, a.k.a Fort Romeu, who belongs to a new generation of producers that are reinventing house music from classic Chicago sounds whilst forging their own paths; Red Axes from Tel-Aviv, representing everything that is amazing in the capital’s underground scene.; and Beats in Space presenter Tim Sweeney.
London’s Horse Meat Disco (Severino & Jim Stanton) also star, along with Italian trio Agents of Time, producer Jeremy Greenspan, best known as one half of Junior Boys, joined by Borys and Spain’s very own Pional, who has travelled the world with John Talabot; opening shows for The XX all across Europe and the USA. Rounding off the lineup are C.P.I., the new project from Marc Piñol and Hugo Capablancas’, along with fellow Spanish DJs and producers Undo, JMII and Abu Sou.
