Continuing the party over at Egg London, Ceremony’s after party will run for a colossal twelve hours running between 10pm – 10am, across five rooms of music. A refined cut of the Ceremony line up, the marathon party will feature the firm FOUND favourite DJ Sneak, much loved for his gangster induced Chicago house that’s a sure fire winner on the dance floor. Also representing the US are the legendary Todd Terry and Roy Davis Jr, who will both serve up their unique take on house that seemingly paved the way for its predecessors. Crosstown Rebels mainstay Fur Coat will also feature, whilst Citizen, Simon Baker, Applebottom and The Menendez Brothers complete the line up. With very limited £13.50 tickets on sale now, the after party promises to be particularly special for those who like it longer, with Egg’s new outdoor garden terrace providing a stylish and unique party setting. 

Building on FOUND’s reputation for hosting unforgettable parties, Ceremony has been expertly crafted to deliver the very best musical experience for its partygoers.  Featuring a total of 7 arenas, line-ups for a further two stages of music have now been revealed with red hot west London promoters, So Fresh So Clean set to make their festival debut.

Headlining the stage is Todd Terry, who will grace the turntables with his ground breaking underground sound that originally hit big in the UK before his native home of the US. A bastion of true, fresh house music, the Grammy nominated producer will play an exclusive old school hip-hop set that excellently personifies the So Fresh So Clean ethos, and is a must-see for those hoping to get that house party feeling. Having already amassed a fun loving fan base, the So Fresh So Clean residents The Menendez Brothers, Rollo and Remi, will get the gin and juice flowing and ensure the vibe never falters. Supporting acts include Dan Hills, Alex Crescent, Nite Sleaze, Hutch and Get Dippy, all offering a slice of London’s most cutting edge 90s infused beats. 

The seventh and final arena will be hosted by legendary record label and promotion outfit Groove Odyssey. With deeply rooted ties tracing back to seminal figures of house such as Kerri Chandler, Joey Negro and Kenny Dope, Groove Odyssey are perfectly placed to complete Ceremony’s journey through sonic history and beyond. One of the most prolific house vocalists of all time, Robert Owens tops the bill for some throwback Chicago classics for what will undoubtedly be a memorable session. A FOUND boiler room set with the late visionary Frankie Knuckles last year proved he is a deft hand at conjuring groove inducing sets, and his performance for Groove Odyssey will be no exception. East end twins Bobby & Steve accompany the Groove Odyssey line up, famed for their soulful Garage sounding ‘Zoo Experience’. Next up is Paul Trouble Anderson, a mainstay of the London soulful house music scene for well over 25 years and renowned for his disco-infused, funky house that has rocked many a warehouse party. Fellow Londoner’s Phil Asher and Jazzy M will bring a hefty helping of vintage house music, whilst duo’s DJ Leo & Funky Smith and Joel S & Panther will take the musical journey through to the late 90s. Continuing to incorporate each sub genre of house is Kev Chase, with Randy Peterson & Yooks and David Bailey & Ted Lawrence completing Groove Odyssey’s legendary line up.

Eastern Electrics Festival 2014

It was certainly an intriguing decision when cutting-edge electronics festival Eastern Electrics announced a one day event at ‘Hatfield House’. Now in its third year as a festival, it began in 2012 as an unassuming one day affair, which expanded greatly to the behemoth of a three day event in 2013 with an unforgettable line-up boasting a plethora of world class DJs. You’d only assume it would do the same again, considering its vast popularity as one of the most spoken of electronic festival in the UK. But it returned with fewer large names in a quaint yet stunning backdrop of a mansion, reverting to just one day again. But did this take away from the experience? Absolutely not.

Considering a last minute rampage to get cagoules galore in preparation for the rain, it was scorching as we entered the festival and headed straight to the Art of Dark tent for Dyed Soundorom. After taking over Ibiza with DJ outfit Apollonia alongside Shonky and Dan Ghenacia, the Parisian DJ returned alone playing a to crowd that were lapping up the set, putting on an impressive display that most certainly testified the idea that you can’t get people dance at such an early time. The atmosphere within the tent however was an unbearable sweaty pit of sighing bodies that had to relinquish to the outdoors to be able to breathe, which somewhat ruined what could have been an incredible set.

Over in the Rinse FM tent were duo Dense and Pika. After favouring their remix of Paul Woolford’s Erotic Discourse, I was excited to see the gritty and glorious sounds of the techno pair as they played to a somewhat empty tent. But empty or not, they certainly received an energetic reception from those who attended, with songs such as Alden Tyrell  ‘Wurk it’ and Josh Winks ‘Are you there’ solidifying their stance as DJs that certainly the ones to watch at this event. The same tent played host to London DJ Route 94; admittedly, we were only passing through the tent as his set played, but we halted to a stop as the commercially well-known hit ‘My Love’ began to play, and the echoes of a singing crowd erupted into a guilty pleasure performance that we couldn’t seem to stay away from.

It was tINI who was inevitably the highlight of the festival. The characteristic deep blow of her selections were both intense and electric, igniting the crowd to full attention as she commenced tracks such as Cid Inc & Victor Hugo’s ‘Made in Brazil’ and transforming the outdoor Switchyard venue into a sea of adrenaline fuelled fist-pumping. As she unleashed Floorplan’s Never grow old, goosebumps appeared as the crowd were divulged in a euphoric state that only the Desolat master was responsible for. It only took a few years for tINI to make a name for herself, and it only took a few moments for her to create an incredible and unparalleled atmosphere at Eastern Electrics. At a climactic moment in the set, a torrential pouring of rain began, and a huge rampage of waterproof handing out activated; no one left their post, however, and a sea of umbrellas and awkward plastic cagoules continued to dance regardless of the showers falling over us.

What was frustrating about the festival was the queue for drinks tokens; having to wait to purchase non-refundable pieces of card to use as currency, to then wait again for a drink seemed somewhat pointless, and many I spoke to were agitated that they had to waste time doing this instead of seeing the acts they wanted. After a swift wait however, we were back and ready for the exciting duo Serge Santiago and Firas Waez, also known as Waze and Odyssey. They were playing at the Red Bull tent – a gloriously compact outdoor venue that played host to an array of exciting acts that day, including Catching Flies and Ali Love. Waze and Odyssey’s set made for a refreshing change from the deep and bellowing techno that seemed to be echoing throughout the rest of the festival, incorporating faster-paced beats, plenty of energy and a steady fuel of bass incorporated into their distinctive house/garage sound. The atmosphere was further lifted as the smooth elements of jazz began to play as Lil Louis ‘Why’d u fall’ was blasting through the tent, much to the delight of the revelling crowd who seemed truly captivated by the duo.

Onto the main stage, and Canadian techno heroes and headliners Art Department began their extraordinary set to a field of fans ready to be driven into a whirlpool of synth-driven house and techno. Comprising of Johnny White and Kenny Glasgow, the duo’s alias ‘Art Department’ have long established a distinctive and pioneering sound, consistently pushing the boundaries when it comes to their music. It was certainly an incredible experience to finally be able to see the pair in action, as their unique elements seem to captivate the crowd and infuse a sense of energy with the bridging together of each track, which was done so in an artistic way. The final act of the night to close the festival was the soulful house pioneer himself, Kerri Chandler. With an abundant body of work behind him, his renown bass-lines create instant excitement, intrinsically hooking between catchy choruses and impressive kick drums, marking him a true legend and ‘King Kerri’ to some. However, tonight’s set was much mellower from the usually up-beat soul DJ, and although the crowd were content, it failed to consume and amaze like his predecessors had done this day.

Eastern Electrics, although downgrading in size, has still managed to pull of an incredible, memorable and equally exciting display of DJs. I’ve attended all three years of the festival; although it doesn’t compare to last years, the atmosphere, acts and overall experience certainly didn’t fail to impress, and thousands of revellers would absolutely agree with me. 

Lovebox 2014 – Friday Review

Mosh pits, glitter and bum cheeks!

Sizzling on the hottest day of the year, Victoria Park played host to the biggest eclectic music festival in the capital! 

Glitter ridden festival-goers came into their element with outlandish headgear, countless Levi cut offs and a whole lot of bum cheek.

Set up with an air carousel, jelly coconuts and VIP doughnuts, LoveBox brought festival magic and a distinct Coachella vibe to East London.

Kicking off the excitement was an energetic performance from reggae legend David Rodigan MBE. Festival-goers were treated to the classics as well as some new material and modern mix-ups. With coconut water, 30-degree heat and some of the best reggae in the world, Lovebox oozed Jamaican vibe.

Katy B followed with a pop performance to both her loyal fans and new comers alike. Complete with an army of powerful dancers, she owned the stage boosting the festivals artistic reputation with her quirky talent. 

London truly showed itself off as the creative capital of the universe with an irrefutably enchanting performance from Chase and Status. The duo came back to their city roots to take on the insatiable British crowds and did not disappoint with a two hour set featuring their most famous hits including Blind Faith and Time with Delilah making an unexpected appearance. 

Famous for their spectacular visual performance, they left no heart unmoved by the sheer power of their music, completely dominating the line up. 

The night ended in a shower of confetti and fireworks as the grounds were cleared for another day of unforgettable moments!

Electric Daisy Carnival 2014 Review

Originating from the USA, Electric Daisy Carnival, or EDC as it is more widely known, made its second trip across the pond to the UK this weekend, transforming Milton Keynes outdoor National Bowl into an entertainment spectacle.

Riding on the success of last years London based event, EDC 2014 offered a who's who of chart-topping EDM, (electronic dance music) producers, best known for their knob-twiddling skills and dance music know how.

Aside from the music, one of EDC's unique selling points (persistently featured in the promo videos) was the scale of special effects on offer. Promising the UK's largest ever 360 degree LED light display, pyrotechnics and hundreds of weird and wonderful performers, the organisers clearly aimed to make their event just as visually appealing as the music itself.

Musically, this years EDC boasted a diverse line up of British and European producers, with EDM duo Bassjackers opening the main stage at midday before Avicii's headline set in the late evening, with chart hits 'You Make Me' and 'Wake Me Up' lighting up the bowl.

Earlier in the day, Calvin Harris played a mid-afternoon set, including recent number ones 'Summer' and 'Under Control', with the majority of the crowd on each other's shoulders early on. It was a busy day for Harris, who hurried off to play a main stage set at T in the Park where he was joined and introduced by Will Smith! Not a bad day for Calvin, who achieved eight top-ten hits from his 2012 album, '18 Months'.

Meanwhile, over on the Cosmic Meadow stage, house music was the order of the day if EDM drops became too much for some. Route 94, who scored a number one earlier this year with his piano house track 'My Love' featuring vocals from Jess Glynne, opened the stage at 1pm with a well received set. Later on, Leeds success story Hot Since 82, real name Daley Padley, performed an evening set of deep house drawing on tracks from his album 'Little Black Book'.

Back at the Kinetic Field main stage, 19-year-old Dutch producer Martin Garrix, who topped the chart with the inescapably catchy 'Animals', which is given an outing today, as well as follow-up top-ten track 'Wizard and a remix of Empire of the Sun's 'Alive' drew a large crowd. Mixing Naughty Boy and Sam Smith's number one 'La La La' with his own new single 'Tremor', the chorus bass drops team with confetti and smoke machines going off in unison.

Next up was Steve Aoki, who is currently hosting his Aoki Play House residency in Ibiza, here making a rare UK appearance, dropping bass heavy tracks, 'Boneless' and a new collaboration with Afrojack, before scaling the grand DJ podium set up. While stood high, he threw numerous cakes at the crowd, something which has become synonymous with the 'Beat Down' producers energetic sets.

For only it's second visit to the UK, it's safe to say that Electric Daisy Carnival is here to stay, fulfilling a gap in the British festival market and offering a world class line-up! Next year's event can't come quicker!

Pendulum, Route 94, Chloe Howl and more added to Brownstock

Brownstock Festival has announced that Pendulum (DJ + Verse), Route 94 and Sigma will be appearing in the dance tent at Brownstock 2014 and that Chloe Howl, Bipolar Sunshine, Josh Record and Tina V will play the main stage in support of headliners Dizzee Rascal, De La Soul and Razorlight. The festival has also added a host of upcoming and local unsigned support acts to the 2014 festival bill. 

Brownstock Music Festival is a small independent music festival run by the Brown family on their farm near Chelmsford, Essex. This year the festival will be held on the 29th August to the 31st August 2014 and is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a birthday party theme.

Hardwell, Pendulum (DJ Set) and more added to EDC UK

World-famous dance music festival Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) returns to the UK for an epic two-day party which will see it transform theMilton Keynes Bowl on Saturday July 12 and Sunday July 13 beyond all recognition in the only way Electric Daisy Carnival knows how, promising to be even bolder and more explosive than 2013’s sold-out inaugural event, and making the ground-breaking festival the most breathtaking show of 2014.

Having already announced a star-studded line-up, Electric Daisy Carnival UK is adding even more names to join the weekend's festivities.

Drum’n’bass and rock fusionists Pendulum bring a heavyweight electric DJ set to Cosmic Meadow hosted by HARD, with hype man Verse on MC duties. A critically acclaimed stadium-worthy live and DJ act, Pendulum DJ sets successfully blur the lines between drum’n’bass, breakbeat, jungle and bass and guitar-led live electronica and rock genres. Staying on a drum’n’bass tip, UK duo Sigma beef up proceedings with a tendency towards jungle-infused sets. A highly sought-after production outfit, Sigma have worked with DJ Fresh, Rusko, Stylo G, Ellie Goulding, and Eric Prydz, and recently scored a huge number 1 with ‘Nobody to Love’.

He topped the charts with infectious banger ‘My Love’ in March, and now hot young DJ/producer Route 94 takes on Cosmic Meadow with his stripped-back deep house and laid-back party style. A leading proponent of the new house sound, Route 94 maintains a distinctly UK edge, his tunes laced with complex grooving basslines. US house master and innovator Kerri Chandler brings a DJ style that seamlessly blends deep through soulful and new house, disco with new wave and floor-friendly techno, UK bass and vocal garage, plus a very special performance fromDeorro who joins Laidback Luke in the Circuit Grounds on July 13. 

An Ibiza favourite whose star continues to rise across the European festival circuit and beyond, Nick Curly is a tech house tour de force. This German DJ shows how it’s done. Cadenza one-to-watch Andrea Oliva is another of Ibiza’s favourites heading to Cosmic Meadow. Dutch electro DJ duo Firebeatz have the remixer’s Midas touch, while in-demand Hot Creations face and Outcross records head Miguel Campbell offers a masterclass in deep house. A-list electro-house production duo Bassjackers appear at Kinetic Field. And multi-talented BBC Radio 1 DJ/producerDanny Howard – whose show boasts 1.8million listeners – joins Circuit Grounds.

EDC UK also welcomes some of the trance scene’s major players to Circuit Grounds, with Grammy Award-nominated progressive pacemakerAndy Moor and boundary-pushing evolutionist Lange going back to back, young talent and BBC Radio 1 In New DJs We Trust name JordanSuckley up against uplifting Irish DJ and producer Bryan Kearney, and Above & Beyond’s golden boy and progressive house tweaker Jaytech squaring up against Anjunadeep burgeoning talent Ilan Bluestone for a unique back to back set.

Adding another two arenas, with Tidy Arena and Goodgreef Xtra HardEDC UK makes a commitment to all things hard.
