On Saturday August 4th Eastern Electrics Festival 2012 arrives at Clapham Common for a huge all-day, all-out, sunshine-fuelled party – taking the festival season by storm, and promising to be THE event of the year! Join 17,000 like-minded
Eastern Electrics people for London’s biggest summer party!
To celebrate the venue announcement, Eastern Electrics announce more additions to an already impossibly cool lineup.
Pan-Pot, Amirali (live), Sebo K, Greg Wilson, Ralph Lawson, Luca C & Ali Love (Infinity Inc), Trickski and Dusky have been added to the party – as well as so many more! Plus a live headline act And another 10 acts still to be announced!
They call themselves “the dark side of the force” and Mobilee Records’ own audio masters, Berlin duo Pan-Pot go deep with their modern techno. Bringing an eclectic mix of house, techno, funk, electronica, disco and everything in between, Amirali’s live show includes vocals, keys and a visual exploration of his weird and wonderful mind. Mobilee’s house music front-runner Sebo K merges cutting-edge tech, minimal and percussive sounds with vintage Chicago and Detroit accents. Also joining the lineup are Greg Wilson, legendary purveyor of the New York post-disco electro-house sound and one of the original mix-masters, and Ralph Lawson – 2020Vision daddy and one of the world’s best house DJs.
London-based Italian producer Luca. C and Back Yard artist Ali Love promise an exciting and eclectic set – a blend of leftfield disco, analogue house and live vocals. And rising house duo Dusky offer diversity and originality, taking their progressive sound through deep and tech house, into edgy techno territory, and mix it all up with some underground UK funky rhythms.
An Eastern Electrics favourite, Jamie Jones is part of a new guard of house and techno DJs who resonate as artists, party people, DJs, and live acts. Inspiring a deep and soulful sound since the early 1990s, Kerri ‘Kaoz’ Chandler brings a set you’ll remember. An exponent of the new house-meets-bass sound, Julio Bashmore is super hot. Joy Orbison’s house-infused bass productions make him a prime candidate for one of the most explorative sets of the day. With a groove-based house sound, and deep roots in techno, Maceo Plex is looking big in 2012.
Nina Kraviz has been steadily rising through the ranks of house and techno’s finest. Expect house and techno in all its forms, beautifully delivered to the crowd. Tensnake’s sound of the Hamburg underground combines disco, house and electro-funk – and lights up the dancefloor! Crazy P’s live show is a spectacle of deep underground electronica meets pop – and it’s one of the best shows you’ll see all year. Mannheim’s house maestro Nick Curly brings a musical sensibility to his production. And catch Hot Creations’ Miguel Campbell and resident and house music reinvigorator Richy Ahmed.
Eastern Electrics is working with some of the most progressive and creative club brands to bring it with this festival. And now they can announce that FOUND and Return to the Future vs TRIX will host their own arenas. Add to this to other arenas from Eastern Electrics, 2020Vision, Futureboogie Recordings vs Hands on Decks, Black Atlantic and Krankbrother – and you’ve got one hell of a team!
For the first FOUND event outside of its home at Vauxhall’s Hidden club, the brand will take the new breed of UK house and experimental electronic music to a bigger stage, gelling established world renowned house talents with their grass roots British counterparts pushing the progressive end of the spectrum. And two rising London party brands go head-to-head for the EE0408 VIP arena – Return To The Future with their classic warehouse ethos, against the progressive tones of TRIX –
to keep the party going throughout the day. And there’s even more still to come…
Having launched in August 2008, Eastern Electrics has since hosted three block-rocking events each year. The brainchild of two of London’s most prolific and talented club personalities – mulletover promoter and pub owner Rob Star and FOUND and Hidden man Will Paterson, Eastern Electrics is renowned for high production levels and massive genre-busting lineups.
After four years of innovative lineups, collaborative promotion and rammed events, it was only a matter of time before Eastern Electrics looked forward to their next step, taking the party up a level, with an event that looks set to surpass everything that’s come before it. Expect this to be London’s biggest summer party!
