This years FOUND Festival is fast approaching so we’re putting together a playlist of 5 acts you probably shouldn’t miss. Taking place at Haggerston Park in Shoreditch, the festival brings some of the finest house and techno producers out there. Here’s 5 artists you should probably go out of your way to see.
1. Damian Lazarus
Crosstown Rebels head-honcho headlines the FOUND curated stage. His latest EP with with The Ancient Moons is the most audacious offering of the year fusing Asian culture with electronic music culture.
BBC Radio 1 resident and curator of the coveted Jackathon parties, Heidi is the one DJ you need to see. Having caught one of her sets at the Warehouse Project in Manchester, I can tell you from first hand experience that she causes absolute mayhem in the best way possible.
3. Leftwing & Kody
Leftwing & Kody are one of house music’s most prominent producers. Low-slung swinging synths and floor quivering basslines aren’t anything revolutionary but their composition and downright attitude comes across incredibly well. I’ve yet to see them live so these guys are of particular note when planning your day at FOUND this year.
These northern Irish boys are the pinnacle of vintage house and techno at the moment. There really isn’t anyone doing it better. Drum sequences are their absolute forte and their technique is flawless. Again, you don’t want to miss out on a Bicep set – they’ll no doubt be one of the highlights of the day.
5. Darius Syrossian
The modern day Godfather of house music, this boy has been through it all calving his own career right from the beginning. That hard-work ethic is portrayed in his productions. Darius has been heralded as the modern day Armand Van Helden by Tribal Sessions and Sankeys founder David Vincent and you know what – that really isn’t far from the truth.
Tickets are still available for FOUND festival HERE, along with more info.
