Part two of our coverage on the UK’s biggest dance and electronic event, Glade Festival, sees us chatting to Alex Clark and Ed Siebert from Overkill – one of the most popular stages at the festival that features a wide array of leftfield electronica. Read on to find out their top three picks at the festival.
“Jimmy Edgar (pictured above) has just released his 4th album entitled Majenta on Scuba’s Hot Flush label. Majenta is arguably his strongest most mature album to date, showcasing his love for cyber funk, electro, house & techno all tied together with that trademark flare. Jimmy will be performing his brand new live show which involves a self programmed sync’d LED display.”
“This Norwegian born musical maestro has been releasing his own styles of 160 bpm footwork music self-titled “Slick Juke” and is going to be a sure fire hot at this years’ Glade Festival. He has had recent releases on Mad Decent’s sister label Jefree and s receiving airplay on BBC Radio One and 1Xtra from the likes of Diplo and Martelo. Definitely one not to be missed!”
“This central American hombre has been making huge waves, or should that be oleadas, in the moombahton scene across the globe. His set at Glade Festival 2012 will be a UK exclusive and is sure to be packed full of styles that only he can purvey. Javier has been remixed and has created remixes for top notch acts and is at the top of his game. Watch out for his set or you may never get this chance again.”
Glade Festival takes place from the 14th-17th June 2012. You can find out more info on the Last.fm event page.
