Cloudcast 034: TrueNature

Category: , , By bassfaced

In advance of Reconstrvct V this Saturday in BKLYN, we enlisted the help of resident DJ TrueNature to provide a guestmix of some of the deep, mesmerizing, sub-bass laden tunes you can expect to experience over the Tsunami Bass soundsystem.  TrueNature will be kicking things off when doors open and if last month's 2-hour set was any indication, you'll want to get there early.  This month's event ushers in another set of USA debuts with London's Razor Rekta and Bristol's Kahn being flown in to mark the occasion.  Red Stripe crew, Saturday night is your time!!

OUTLOOK 2012 LINEUP ADDITIONS

Category: , By bassfaced


30TH AUGUST - 3RD SEPTEMBER
FORT PUNTA CHRISTO, PULA, CROATIA

After creating a buzz in the Bass Music community with a stellar initial lineup, it’s time to spill the beans and announce the second wave of acts joining the Outlook lineup. The festival's 2012 incarnation welcomes back some familiar faces along with newcomers, as well as the established headliners and classic pioneers you've come to expect.
Kicking off the proceedings is a name that has been around since the very beginning of Outlook: back for the 4th time  and who has played a massive part in the music we love. Skream is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in modern dance music and an artist that has been a regular feature on the Outlook lineup. Anyone that has attended previous years will be aware of the hype surrounding Skream and his high-energy performances. His incredible versatility ranges through many genres and finds a comfortable home across main stages, boat parties and more intimate surroundings. Back for the 4th time, Outlook Festival proudly announce, Skream.

Looking back to the foundations of Dub and Reggae, Outlook announce a very special duo. Founded by brothers Norman and Ralston Grant in Jamaica during the late 1960s, the Twinkle Brothers became an instant hit. Since then they have created their own Twinkle label and helped to build over 60 albums with collaborators. On stage the Twinkle Brothers have gained global recognition with Norman as the energetic front man along side Ralston driving their rich sound.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, Drum and Bass plays a massive role in the Outlook lineup and its time to add two of the genres finest. Easily one of Brazil’s finest musical exports and a global star, DJ Marky jets to Croatia this summer. Fusing the music of his Latin American upbringing with sounds from London is what gave this DJ a unique sound within the scene. In 2002 his single “LK” entered the UK charts making DJ Marky one of the most popular DJs at the time. This amazing talent oozes sunshine and will sound truly special in Croatia.

Another global super star Outlook will be welcoming is one of the most revered names in Drum and Bass. Descriptions like high-energy and excitement don’t even come close to the devastation Andy C is known for causing. When not travelling the globe tearing dancefloors apart Andy C takes time to pass on his knowledge at Oxford University. With nearly two decades of DJing behind him, who better to tear up the main stage at Outlook this summer?

Experience counts for a lot and for the second time Outlook Festival opens the fort to an extraordinary artist that has inspired listeners for two decades. Zinc began his musical journey back in the early 90’s in London when fusions of Hardcore and Ragga became known as Jungle. In this new genre Zinc built himself a solid reputation that has continued through to the present day. Not only prolific in the realms of DnB but also in the modern sounds of London’s underground scene. Now turning his focus to styles such as Garage, Breakbeat, and Bass, Zinc founded his own unique flex known as Crack House.


 

One of the biggest names in UK Funky will be joined on stage by a singer who has found a way to compliment the emerging British genre perfectly. No performance would be as better suited to sunshine when Roska & Jamie take to the stage at Outlook this year.


 

Another duo that Outlook are proud to announce have just finished touring with SBTRKT as his supporting act. Hailing from the creative source that is Croydon, Disclosure join the bill at Outlook Festival. Comprised of two young brothers, Disclosure have made an impressive entrance on to the Bass Music atlas with taste makers like Benji B and Mary Anne Hobbs backing releases. At the ages of 16 and 19 we can’t wait to see what the pair have in store for the future and for their debut performance at Outlook.

Outlook have always been firmly behind up and coming UK Hip Hop. This year Outlook presents one of the most exciting acts to have appeared in some time. The Four Owls make their debut appearance at Outlook alongside some of the Hip Hop greats already confirmed for this year. Fliptrix, Verb T, BVA and Leaf Dog make up the hottest new UK Hip Hop with more onstage energy than a Mediterranean thunderstorm.

With so many stages at Outlook it only seems fair to lend them to some friends for the night to take care of. Founded in 1994 Metalheadz is soon to release its 100th record and has brought through some of the best producers around. Label boss Goldie will see support from the likes of dBridge, Lenzman, Jubei, Calyx, Teebee and MC Lowqui. 

Our second takeover comes from London pirate radio institution Rinse FM. Gracing this stage will be some of its finest DJs that include N-Type, Oneman, Zinc, Marcus Nasty, Roska and P Money. Another highly subscribed takeover is always the Shogun Audio Stage brought to you by label boss DJ Friction. Joining him are a force of DJs that include Spectrasoul, Icicle, Alix Perez, Rockwell and SP:MC as your host.

Expect the best and remember to keep your eyes peeled for more information on our lineup as more news is released
