Screamizm announced for Bestival 2014
With the coolest congregation of castaways ever at one party, September 4th – 7th will see Robin Hill bouncing to irresistible energy from OutKast, Foals, Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers, Beck, Busta Rhymes, Disclosure, Basement Jaxx, Major Lazer, Sven Väth, Annie Mac Presents, Chase & Status (DJ set), Eats Everything and many, many more. But you know we haven’t finished yet, not even close. The line-up keeps on getting better and better and to prove it here’s news of more shipwrecked mates joining our shorefront shenanigans, and also of a very special edition of Mixmag’s The Lab this coming Friday!
Skream says: “I’m extremely proud/excited/over the moon to be able to say I’m hosting a tent at Bestival this year! I’ve been playing at Bestival for the last 4/5 years (I think), and to be able to say I took Skreamizm there, I’ll die a happy man!”
Taking it back to the source, Skreamizm is all about ace tunes on fat soundsystems, like it should be. Bringing the unmistakably ecstatic vibes of funky little sweatboxes where the real action is, we’re over the moon that Skreamizm is coming to blow away Bollywood at Bestival on Friday 5th September. Blazing his own trail, Skream, AKA Oliver Jones’, recent Rollercoaster joint smashed disco into the future, so it’s more than fitting that he will be adding his own inimitable style to our Desert Island Disco.
Also adding his not inconsiderable presence to Skreamizm at Bestival is Chicago house leviathan Derrick Carter! Quite simply one of the greats, Derrick Carter’s sets are as edifying as they are electrifying, taking in underground house, soul, jazz and, of course, disco. His own ‘Derrick Carter Does Disco’ sessions have had dancefloor aficionados and those in the know begging for more, so this rare treat, as Derrick joins Skreamizm to dig deep into his crate of disco classics, makes it a total honour for us to welcome him back to Bestival.
Completing the Skreamizm line-up at Bestival will be current UK singles chart number 1, Route94 who has long enjoyed support from Skream, and knows his way around a massive banger or two and long-time Bestival party favourites Horse Meat Disco who will pump pure joy out of the soundsystem and into your bones.
If, like us, you think that sounds amazing and can’t wait until September for some cheeky disco manoeuvres you’ll be very pleased to hear that this Friday March 14th Bestival will be having a special office rave-up bringing Skreamizm at Bestival to Mixmag’s Lab. Getting the weekend under starters orders, the live stream which runs from 4:30-6:30pm (GMT) will feature booty shaking sets from Skream, Derrick Carter and Bestival chief Rob da Bank. So don’t miss out and head to Mixmag at 4:30pm on Friday to stream the party.
