Drum and Bass superstars head to Brighton for a headline DJ set in the Supercharged Arena
Shakedown has revealed the headline act for the Supercharged Arena with Chase & Status heading to the UK’s party capital to hijack the supercharged sound system.
These superstar DJ’s are known for their eclectic blend of genre defying styles and are one of the most potent forces on the dance scene. Famed for their incendiary DJ sets, this irrepressible duo will be armed to the teeth with a plethora of dance floor anthems and underground classics.
Chase & Status have earned international recognition through their monumental album ‘No More Idols’ which crashed into the charts in 2011, amassing over 300,000 sales and spawning a stream of chart topping singles including collaborations with Plan B, Tempa T, Maverick Sabre and Dizzee Rascal to name but a few.
Supporting Chase & Status in the Supercharged Arena will be the much lauded Knife Party and Zane Lowe, back by popular demand at Shakedown for a second year after a jaw dropping set at the inaugural event.
Local boy and Drum & Bass heavyweight DJ Friction will also perform alongside pioneering producer and godfather of UK Bass, Shy FX. Multi award winning Ms Dynamite and will also join the succession of artists on stage alongside rapidly emerging production duo The Prototypes.
Headlining the main stage is the UK’s ultimate showman Dizzee Rascal. Armed with an arsenal of hits, Dizzee is at the top of his game right now. Professor Green will take to the stage at Stanmer Park performing all the hits from his albums, Alive Till I’m Dead and ‘At Your Convenience’ whilst girl about town and queen of the underground Katy B showcases her mix of dub step, funky, house, garage and r n’ b to mesmerising effect.
Hotly tipped Stooshe are embracing mainstream success with their brash, bolshy and infectiously catchy brand of urban pop whilst Clement Marfo and The Frontline provide an endless supply of gargantuan pop hooks and sweet neo-soul vocals.
Hed Kandi, the most stylish name in house music have been confirmed to host the VIP Arena with a spectacular production and a host of DJ’s including Freemasons, Seamus Haji and Phil Faversham.
