Drum n’ Bass overlord Sub Focus has been packing dance floors since 2003 and was Pendulum’s warm up DJ on their last tour. The sheer audaciousness of his maximalist approach is guaranteed to stimulate and stun audiences with dance floor destroying tracks and Bristol is ready for some serious drum n’ bass action.
Hamburg DJ Tensnake’s disco and house inspired floor fillers have made him the stand out DJ on the Nu Disco scene. Adored by everyone from lovers of 4/4 floorquakers to the quirkiest exponents of dubstep his set is sure to have those who love to dance heading for the South West.
Breaks legends Krafty Kuts and Featurecast team up for a very special show. Krafty Kuts is widely regarded as one of the world’s best DJ’s, a purveyor of breaks and old-skool hip hop whilst Featurecast has stamped his own twist on the funky breaks scene with magnificent effect. Expect a truly monumental party set when these two hit the decks for this unique performance.
We The People are thrilled to announce a performance from J-Wow. Founding member of Buraka Som Sistema, his fierce and funky, bass infused madness mark him out as a truly innovative DJ and his performance is sure to be one of the defining moments of this inaugural festival.
Pioneer of 2Step and UK Garage, MJ Cole will perform tracks from his new record which is already being supported on radio by Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Gilles Peterson as well as club classic ‘Sincere’.
Further acts announced such as Jammer, Baobinga, Seiji, Dels, Retro/Grade, A Skillz, Mala + Sgt Pokes, Jakes, Guido, Ben UFO bring an extra dimension to the line-up, as some of the most forward-thinking and creative producers out there.
Local promoters and club nights are firmly represented with Bed and The Blast confirmed to host stages on Saturday and Blowpop and local legend Pinch confirmed for Sunday.
Bed is Bristol’s Enchanted Discotheque and the biggest weekly event in the city. The Blast are the boys behind the monster that is Shit The Bed and too many other nights to mention whilst Blowpop is the longest running club night in the city – and for good reason.
Pinch is the Bristol based DJ, producer and founder of labels Tectonic & Earwax and the Subloaded/Dubloaded events. Bristol has a history of emerging new producers and new sounds such as Massive Attack, Portishead and Full Cycle – and Pinch has every right to be up there and considered alongside all of them. His work within the bass and sound-system cultures pretty much lead the way for every other dubstep and bass music producer in Bristol today.
We The People are also thrilled to announce a host of local artists, DJ’s and MC’s, showcasing the ever thriving and evolving Bristol music scene.
