SAVANT (UK Debut)
Every now and then our ears are witness to something new, something it never expected. Usually it signifies the birth of a new genre of music, other times its the perfection of one. Sometimes if we are really lucky we will become a part of something bigger. At first listen, it is the impossible. After that, it is the realisation of dreams.
Hailing from Oslo, Norway SAVANT, known by birth as Aleksander Vinter, was not a name chosen but rather a description. He has Aspergers Syndrome. With production, and in performance it is a gift of an extraordinary musical splinter skills. He has created over 10,000 songs from Classical to Black Metal, Dubstep and everything in between. He was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy Award in 2009 for his first album called “Outbreak”. This was the catalyst for greatness!
The Plump Djs are internationally renowned DJ/Producer duo Andy Gardner and Lee Rous of London. Their unmistakable sound has won them remixes from the likes of Deadmou5, Mark Ronson, Moby and Orbital, whilst their four deck live show has led to countless international and national shows.
Self admitted suckers for bass and 'the groove', Gardner and Rous fuse Electro-house, Rave, Acid House, Breakbeat and Techno into their own style they call 'Plump music', the defining ethos for their recently formed Grand Hotel record label.
They have received worldwide acclaim and relentless cross-genre support for some 15 years now. A compelling history of success, cemented by their musical collaborations with legendary vocalists Gary Numan, Jermaine Jackson and Louise Rhodes of Lamb, a ten year residency at Fabric Nightclub and over 1200 international shows. They are true innovators of sound who proudly co-created the popular break-beat genres of the last decade with their initial releases on Fingerlickn’ Records. They are pioneers of production whose shared passion for electronic music and the art of making people dance has inspired a generation of dance floor destroying experiments. The ever-evolving sound of Plump DJs continues to be met with enthusiasm from discerning dance music fans worldwide.
Beaport sums him up quite well here.
“Elite Force unites the sometimes warring factions of electro house, techno, and breakbeat, like a peace keeper who values the spirit of cooperation and tolerance. He was forged in the fires of breakbeat, which has always had a habit of sucking in sounds that pass by. Elite’s sets are like a team performance, with tracks coming from all corners of the bass-driven sector, to create a vibrant hodgepodge of boundary-pushing dance music….“
Radio 1 Beatbox Champion::
Channel 4Talent Award Winner::
The Petebox is a solo performer, musician, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose pioneering live show has ignited audiences across the world. Breaking out as an award-winning beatboxer he soon redefined the genre through the use of his loop pedal, guitar and his otherworldly, multi-phonic voicebox.
Witnessing The Petebox's live show is like experiencing a magic trick, reveal on reveal, loop on loop, one man building up tracks that are as sonically massive and diverse as any full band setup or DJ set.
Make no mistake though, this is no novelty act, this is a singular artist untouched by trends or fads, someone who is genuinely and fiercely independent who has tapped into an art form of true expression that connects directly with the hearts of a rapidly growing fan base. He possesses a primal talent and has transformed it into music that captures the imagination of people from all walks of life and from every corner of the world.
ODJBOX & SLAMBOREE SOUND SYSTEM
A one off very special unique collaboration DJ set from these two very special acts.
Representing Slamboree are FREEAR & KATHIKA.
Freear & Kathika are the Producer, DJ & MC incarnation of the Pyro-Circus Rave Massive also known as Slamboree; with a fearsome reputation of bringing heavyweight bass to festivals and clubs across the world. They perform a full-throttle dance explosion featuring an eclectic genre-busting mashup of styles! Undoubtedly one of the most unique on the circuit.
Next up in this mixup is Mr ODJBOX.
Odjbox is undoubtedly one of the biggest talents in the Electro Swing scene! His trademark sound, a fusion of Funk, Swing, Glitch and Hip Hop has really made him stand out from the rest and exposed the huge talent that is Odjbox.
He's in hot demand right now from huge players in the global music scene wanting to collaborate. His DJ talents are now being recognised to after being shortlisted for best DJ at the UK Glitch Hop Awards 2014. Has been a big part of the rise of Electric Empire playing pretty much every show that has been. It would just be wrong to not have him on the lineup.
If your not a fan already you need to get on this!
This will be a no rules DJ set from the boys! They have been given full permission to play what the hell they like and do what the hell they like. Expect the unexpected with this one. The guys have the best body moving, booty shaking party tracks going, if they don't have it its not worth having. This will be a set you do not want to miss!!
To call these guys Electro Swing is like trying to call Tiddlywinks a sport. They push the boundaries to controversy and really have one aim for sets: to create absolute mayhem through fun, baselines and antics to rival any cabaret.
They're definitely DJ's with a live act, confiding them in a DJ booth will merely mean your booth will explode into unicorns and nobody will survive to tell the tale.
Resident DJ of Electric Empire and the master of mashup! Ducking and diving between styles like no other, mixing everything from Swing to Trap! I’m sure you’ll hear the odd dose of Drum’n’Bass in there too.
You could say he is the 2 Many Djs or the DJ Yoda of the swing world - lots of people are starting to take note and are realising the talents of this masterful DJ.
