Glade continues it mission to show the UK’s dance music festival scene how it’s done. Following our first line up announcement two weeks ago, we’re proud to give you a second wave of headliners for the main stage at this summer’s event. If you love experiencing some of the most upfront and exciting electronic music around in a glorious countryside setting, this 4-day event is a REAL festival for serious music lovers. Having blazed the trail for non-commercial dance music events since 2004, Glade is back and you’d better be ready.
EXCLUSIVE UK FESTIVAL APPEARANCE:
STEPHAN BODZIN & OLIVER HUNTEMANN
Stephan Bodzin became a firm fixture on the international techno scene in 2008 with a career that initially began with producing music for several prestigious European theatres. Bremen-born Bodzin’s experimental club sounds saw his mind-blowing talent discovered by Thomas Schummacher and fellow Glade guests Huntemann and Marc Romboy. Due to his exceptional production sound and knowledge of music he has remixed artists like Depeche Mode, Booka Shade andThe Knife whilst releasing on labels such as Get Physical, International DJ Gigalo, Datapunk and Systematic. He describes himself as a melody man going on to say “after all it’s the melodies that endure.” The responses to his productions seem to confirm this and his sounds are greatly loved in clubs worldwide.
Our second headliner announced is Oliver Huntemann. Hailing from northern Germany, Huntemann discovered electronic music as a ten-year old in the late seventies having being influenced by a new wave ofartists hitting European shores likeAfrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash and Whodini. Aged fourteen, Oliver started spinning discs and had his eyes set on becoming a DJ. In the late 80s Huntemann spent six years training and working as an electronic engineer with the German Navy whilst keeping his eyes and ears firmly on the evolving electronic music scene. Following the acid house explosion he began experimenting with his own sounds. It wasn’t until the early Naughties that Oliver began producing under his own name alongside H-Man and Rekorder monikers (the later with Stephan Bodzin) as well as founding and releasing on his own label Confused Recordings, which was followed by Ideal Audio. Over the years Oliver’s work has appeared on fellow Glade headliner Sven Vath’s Cocoon imprint, Anthony Rother’s Datapunk label and DJ Hell’s International DJ Gigalo’s.
In early 2007 alive DJ set recorded at D-Edge club in Sao Paul, Brazil was released under the title Play! 01, followed by Play! 02 recorded at The Rex Club in Paris in 2008; both mixes saw Oliver placed firmly at the top of the international techno elite. Follow this with remixes of Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, Depeche Mode and releasing four artist albums, the later of which, Paranoia, dropped in December 2011, Oliver is one of the most exciting artists working in his field.
STANTON WARRIORS, SYSTEM 7 (Live)
THE CORRESPONDENTS (Live) AND LEWAH
Joining the dots between UKG, breaks and booty bass, UK-duo The Stanton Warriors AKA Mark Yardley and Dominic B have been delivering party-shaking anthems since the late nineties. It was their single Da Virus which saw them achieve wide-spread success which was quickly followed by a mixtape titled The Stanton Sessions Vol.1. This saw them explode big time, headlining clubs and festivals across the globe. Add to this a Fabric Live mix, an album and a whole selection of party smashing anthems, theStantons appearance at Glade 2012 will see energy levels fly.
Techno / trance crossover act System 7 have been extremely influential on the international music scene. Having had a strong impact at the birth of psychedelic dance music and throughout its journey up to present date, they have forged an unique and contemporary identity in the space where techno, progressive and trance meet. Having collaborated with Detroit luminaries Derrick May and Carl Craig and many other international icons including The Orb, Laurent Garnier, Jam El Mar, A Guy Called Gerald and Son Kite, their most recent album, Up, released last year, sees the duo deliver a techno and tech house sound inspired by time spent in Berlin. Their live sets are inspirational and we’re glad to have them onboard.
Our last live act, The Correspondents AKA Mr Bruce and Chuck, completely blur the lines, mashing up the history of dance music from Jazz to 60’s Beat, Electro to Dubstep to Drum N Bass and back again. The live shows explore the flamboyant structure of the DJ / MC set-up, with Chuck hurling tracks at the crowd whilst Mr Bruce, dressed in outlandish costume,whips the crowd into a frenzy with his speed-scatting and incredulous dancemoves. Last year’s festival season saw them share main stages with a brass section, an infra-red sensored light box together with their trusty conveyor-belt dance platform. This has earned them The Telegraph’s Top Ten Highlights of Glastonbury two years in a row.
Joining them and kick-starting Sunday’s dub-session is South West fast-rising star Lewah, whose excellently crafted dub and chill-step sets have earned her the opportunity to open for Don Letts.
