Faded #012 at Detonate Festival

Monday 14th April 2014

Nottingham collective Faded occupy the twilight zone of the underground music scene, that point where the colours of genre labels start to run and bleed into each other, all in the name of deep and progressive low-end vibes. Having organised a string of knockout parties, featuring names like Dusky, Justin Martin, Breach and many more, we are excited to be handing over the reigns of an arena at Detonate Festival to Faded, for what looks to be their biggest line up to date…

BONOBO (DJ Set)

The celebrated producer, DJ and all-round musical being which is Bonobo never fails to provide an immersive musical experience when he takes to the decks. Allowing his live show to inform his sets, he works track selection like an instrument - check out his Radio 1 Essential Mix HERE for a taste of what's to come.

MACHINEDRUM PRESENTS VAPOR CITY LIVE

Ninja Tune labelmate of Bonobo, Machinedrum caused jaws to hit the deck the world over when he dropped his debut album for the imprint last year, the mesmeric 'Vapor City'. That rarest of beasts, a concept album without any hint of pretension, it is phenomenal - see it come to life with his dynamic live interpretation.

BODDIKA

Rendering genre boundaries as useful as a chocolate kettle, the London-based producer draws on underground influences from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, whipping them up into a heady and hard-hitting brew which gave the UK scene one hell of shock when it first arrived, and has continued to do so ever since.

MIDLAND

As you might expect from a producer from Leeds who calls himself Midland, there's a short shrift given to conventional naming practices, a philosophy which continues into his diverse musical output. Bringing a refreshing sense of exploration and discovery to his unification of underground sounds, this is certainly no common or garden house/garage mash-up - this is progress. 

LEVON VINCENT

One of the toppest of dogs in the NYC house scene - no mean feat, I think you'll agree - Levon Vincent means business. He's been manning the decks since the 1980s, and has forgotten more about house than us mere mortals will ever know.

DIGITAL MYSTIKZ

Dubstep without the earth-shaking sounds of Mala and Coki would barely be worth mentioning. Genuine pioneers of the bass-heavy sound at its inception, they embraced the dubwise roots with open arms and defined a sound with the mighty 'Anti-War Dub'. Certified legends and inspiration to more than a few, this is the sound of dubstep as it was always supposed to be.

TESSELA 

Geographically, Tessela's pedigree is second-to-none, having moved between bass music capital Bristol and Leeds when it was in the grip of the dubstep revolution. Luckily, he has the musical chops to match, growing into the 4/4 sounds of house, techno, garage and beyond.

CATCHING FLIES (DJ Set)

Young London talent Catching Flies has struck straight at the heart of the underground music scene with his beautiful productions, which are intelligent enough to come from the mind of someone twice his age. This set could be one for the history books.

LORCA

Chiming brilliantly with the current 2-step scene, Lorca has been there or thereabouts since his entrance in 2011 with 'Moments', which instantly gained wide support. A lover of the soulful vocal, his tunes make blissful listening.

 

Support comes from BruisesMculo and Stefan Molinaro.
