With just 12 weeks to go until T in the Park 2015, festival organisers DF Concerts and founding partner Tennent’s Lager have today revealed the final act to join the Slam Tent line-up, with Surgeon and Lady Starlight completing the Slam bill.
Surgeon has been at the forefront of UK techno since 1994. His seminal debut EP launched his career along with several early Downwards releases, and he’s been prolific ever since, with albums on Tresor and numerous Counterbalance and Dynamic Tension EPs. He’s remixed works for some of the biggest names in techno (Dave Clarke, Luke Slater/P.A.S, Green Velvet, Hardfloor and the Black Dog) as well as Thom Yorke (Radiohead) and Glasgow post-rock outfit Mogwai. Dubbed “arguably the finest techno DJ in the world” by Fact magazine, the iconic DJ recently teamed up with Lady Starlight in what has been widely acclaimed as an inspired collaboration after the duo opened for Lady Gaga on her artRAVE tour.
Lady Starlight has been an influential presence in the New York City underground since the early 2000s. A multi-talented classic rock and metal DJ, her sets fuse elements of late 60’s psych, to 70’s glam, to the new wave of British heavy metal. They bring their exhilarating double act to the Slam Tent, completing a phenomenal international line-up curated by world renowned dance powerhouse Slam.
