When it comes to modern times, no other musical prodigy has dominated airwaves and filled stadiums across the planet like Martin Garrix. In the space of less than two years this Dutch teenager has taken the world by storm, with a list of achievements which often prove difficult to comprehend. Aged just 16, Martin became the youngest producer to have ever reached the number one spot in the Beatport charts. He has since achieved a UK #1 selling single, broke Top 10 charts in a further ten countries and headlined many of the world’s most popular electronic music festivals including Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland and Mysterland. In an ultra-rare London performance, Martin returns to the Capital on Sunday 30th August to make his South West Four debut. We’re ready. Are you?

As one of the hottest artists currently residing in the global electronic scene, South West Four is delighted to bring Claptone’s incredible live show to London for the very first time on Saturday 29th August. Having featured on Radio1’s Essential Mix and headlined Ministry of Sound this past weekend alone, Claptone has been on a crest of a wave in recent times. His latest track ‘The Music Got Me’ achieved Essential New Tune status on Pete Tong’s Radio1 show a couple of weeks back, which along with ‘Forest Of Love’ and his superb remix of Gregory Porter’s ‘Liquid Spirit’, has completed a hat-trick of Claptone productions which have stormed Beatport’s ‘Deep House’ Top 10 this year. With more productions on their way this summer via his debut album, the man behind the mask will illustrate at SW4 that when it comes to 2015, this is the year of Claptone.
A key member of Rudimental’s colossal Black Butter camp, Kidnap Kid has ridden the house and garage renaissance of recent times, to develop his own sound that makes him difficult to pigeonhole.

His record ‘Vehl’ won iTunes ‘Best Electronic Song’ of 2012, whilst his summer anthem ’Survive’ went straight to the top of the Hype Machine charts. Kidnap Kid has remixed a plethora of musical talent including Disclosure, Rudimental, Clean Bandit and Emile Sande and with the continued backing of Black Butter, the future looks very bright for this young tastemaker. Kidnap Kid can be found playing Fatboy Slim’s Smile High Club at SW4 on Saturday 29thAugust.
