The Berlin based techno house specialist Claptone is a man of mystery. Backlit by a bright glow of iridescent light, the undecipherable form wore a dazzling golden mask. Years spending wandering medieval landscapes have informed Claptone’s view of the world, experiencing both magical mystery and muted melancholy he enchanted onlookers with occult instruments and beguiling sounds. Forever surrounded by a sense of intrigue, the world soon cottoned on to the elusive yet enchanting musical powers of this otherworldly beast. The results are that today his shamanistic sonic powers take him all around the world.
Dubstep pioneer and Magnetic Man member, Artwork, spent the late ’90s and early ’00s knocking out garage anthems like it was nothing (with D’n’D, Menta and under his own name), while running the studio above seminal Croydon record store Big Apple. It was at Big Apple where he met Skream and Benga – the three of them went on to form Magnetic Man, and become dubstep’s first major label-signed, chart-topping success story. He will be flying solo at Inside Out Festival with his moody rhythms that have seized global attention.
Jasper James, a DJ and producer with talent that stretches beyond his years, has crafted his own-brand of house and techno through DJ sets at some of the world’s most respected clubs. He continues to build ties with Europe’s wider electronic music scene and cement himself as one of the UK and Europe’s leading young selectors capable of working any crowd, at any time.
Arriving on the scene in 2015, Jody Barr has continued firmly on his ascent to the top. Demonstrating astute studio skills beyond his years and sporting a serious arsenal of hardware, Barr specialises in his own strain of ‘Technofied House Music’ - burly, rattling dance floor tracks that have seen airplay across a multitude of Radio 1 shows.
