Then come UK duo CamelPhat who served up the single of the year on Defected with ‘Cola’, a track featuring indie vocalist Elderbrook that got major Radio 1 play, topped UK and US charts and won the Track of the Year award in Ibiza recently. Next out the bag is Skepsis, a 21 year old bassline star who has blown up in 2017 thanks to big tunes like ‘It Goes Like’, while fellow bassline star Holy Goof has also been everywhere in 2017 thanks to mixes on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Kiss FM, sets at Glastonbury and a track he co-produced with DJ Zinc on the legendary Bingo Bass label.
Next up, Apexape have released their urgent mix of high pace house and bass on Strictly Rhythm and it has won them fans all over the world. South Coast collective FooR also join the bill – a group of producers, musicians and DJs who have featured on Radio 1, 1xtra, Kiss FM and more, while also launching their own label and events brand which has seen support from big wigs like MistaJam.
