Radio 1 DJ and queen of the dancefloor Annie Mac taught herself to mix using old funk and hip hop records, and is now firmly established as one of the biggest names in dance music. Another Radio 1 DJ and new music pioneer Zane Lowe will bring his schizophrenic yet encyclopaedic musical perspective, he jumps from rock star to raver with a flick of the crossfader.
Hotly tipped producer Jakwob will be performing his live show at the festival this summer. Jakwob has already established himself as the go-to man for dubstep remixes, his current single “Electrify” is the first release from his forthcoming genre defying album.
Also joining the festival this July is DJ, presenter, and long time friend of the festival, Goldierocks aka Sam Hall. Sam’s had a busy year since playing at festivals around the world and landing herself a presenting job filing in for Dev at Radio 1. She’s also found the time to be team captain on Channel 4’s Pop Up Pop Up Quiz.
Clement Marfo And The Frontline are a seven piece diverse collective from South London, led by the charismatic Clement. Tipped as one of MTV’s “Brand new for 2012” theta have made a name for themselves with their energetic live shows. Their tracks include elements of hip-hop, grime, rave and rock, definitely one to watch…
Guitarist, songwriter, MC and producer Random Impulse will also be making the journey to Pen Llyn. Backed by a drummer, bassist and guitar player, on stage Random Impulse raps his self written songs whilst playing electric guitar.
Teenage brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence make up bass music duo Disclosure. Their current R&B tinged single Tenderly is already playlisted by Radio 1, and the duo have recently been supporting Sbtrkt on tour. Expect a dynamic live show, with unashamedly old school dancefloor vibes.
