Electric Picnic Preview #1

Over the next two weeks we will be giving a brief introduction to some of the acts we will be checking out at this years EP. Not much room to go in to detail here so just a couple of tracks and videos of our main highlights really.

First up,
Modeselektor: Bodytonic Main Stage, Sunday.
A live set from the German duo, their show in the Tivoli earlier this year is still talked about with fondly. Expect everything from dub step to pounding techno and a sprinkle of champagne.
Listen: Modeselektor - The Dark Side Of The Sun feat. Puppetmastaz (Original Mix)

Diplo: Bodytonic Main Stage, Sunday.
No introduction needed for this fella.
Listen to Fuzzy Peach Mix and Top Ranking Mix Tape

Dan Deacon: Somewhere on Saturday.
After just a couple of years on the scene this Philly born producer has made a name for himself as one helluva live act, check out the vid for an idea.

Benga: Bodytonic Main Stage, Sunday.
One of the guys responsible for the massive surge in the popularity of dub step, now making it good stateside too. Check mac E's post for the lowdown and some tracks.

Jape: Somewhere on the Friday.
Local hero Richie Egan will no doubt draw a huge crowd. Played Glastonbury earlier this year and just released his Ritual album. DO NOT miss Floating sung to/by the large home crowd.

Jape - Floating (Prins Thomas Mix)

Lindstrom & Prins Thomas: Twisted Pepper Stage Saturday.
Well deserved 4 hour set for the Nordic twosome. Excellent move from Bodytonic to get them down for an extendo-set. Cosmic disco that will start easy and no doubt culminate in hedonistic twisted disco madness.
Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Essential Mix - One of the best essential mixes ever.

That's it for now, more over the next two weeks.
