Mishka are back with the 33rd installment of their Keep Watch mix series, this time tapping the talents of London grime producer Royal-T. His '1 UP or Shatap' EP released on NoHatsNoHoods in 2009 was the first time he landed on our radar and his stock has continued to rise with the release of an EP on Butterz last year as well as a single on Rinse earlier this Spring. In addition to his Mishka mix, you can also snag a recording of his DJ set from the Butterz 2-year anniversary party at Cable in London HERE.

6-9TH SEPTEMBER 2012
FORT PUNTA CHRISTO, PULA, CROATIA
With just under five months left to go before the Fort at Punta Christo opens its gates, Dimensions clears the path and welcomes the final artists to add to its amazing line-up. For its maiden voyage, Dimensions will host the very best in the deeper end of the electronic spectrum.
Regarded by many from Detroit as one of the most driven artists in the genre, Carl Craig tops a bill of acts that have all been influenced by his sound. Known for releasing under a number of different names, Craig has always been one to keep the sound moving forward plotting roads across Jazz and Soul as his influence. Currently performing under the “Carl Craig Presents 69”, Craig brings live Techno to a whole new platform with a large array of equipment and a truly amazing show.
Set on the picturesque Adriatic coast, Dimensions hijacks the Fort at Punta Christo. Known around the world as a mecca for Bass music lovers, Dimensions makes use of the beautiful surroundings with an intimate capacity, creating the perfect place to enjoy the deeper end of the electronic spectrum through some of the best sound systems in Europe
Kieran Hebden is without a doubt one of the most diverse musicians London has produced and has played a huge role in some of the most memorable music the city has created. Known to many as Four Tet, Hebden has a career that dates back to the late 90’s with a string of impressive albums on Domino Records. Drawing elements from Folk, Jazz, Electronica and Hip Hop, Hebden has worked with a wide range of artists from MF Doom to Radiohead. Currently living in New York, Four Tet sets sail for Croatia for a highly anticipated live performance.
Embracing the raw energy from live music, Dimensions welcomes a Mercury prize nominated four-piece band. Formed in East London, Portico Quartet have a delicate and cinematic sound drawing influence from a wide rage of genres, encompassing both acoustic and electronic elements. Another great British act to perform this year have traveled the globe with their impressive live show and have certainly made their mark on the Bass music community. Signed to the prestigious Hotflush Recordings, Mount Kimbie bring the full live set up to Dimensions.
Tom Middleton is an artist who is no stranger to all things deep and wonderful. Prolific during the 90’s as an ambient producer, Middleton is also well versed in House and Electro. This September Middleton joins Dimensions as Sounds Of the Cosmos, his new label which showcases a variety of styles all of which fit in perfectly with the vibe of the festival.
Glasgow has always produced exceptional talent and Koreless is by far the city’s hottest new contributor. His break through moment was back in 2011 with his track “4D’ which saw appreciation from Benji B and numerous DJ’s on Rinse FM.
Alongside the live acts added, Dimensions boasts some of the greatest DJ’s from Europe and America. New York’s Morgan Geist of Metro Area joins Norwegian Disco prince Todd Treje, Swedish Deep House don Axel Boman and Spanish melancholic master, John Talabot.
Due to the capacity and scale of lineup at Dimensions not everyone will have the pleasure of attending. Boasting a cutting-edge line-up and intimate setting, Dimensions has quickly become one of the most anticipated events of the summer amongst dedicated underground music lovers. With tickets selling like Jungle records in the 90’s, those that enjoy the soulful, deeper end of music are advised to jump on this opportunity.
