TEED + more in final wave line-up
With just under two weeks to go till Land of Kings takes over Dalston, we can excitedly release the final wave of artists…
Top of the list is kaleidoscopic electro wunderkind Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ set), returning to headline Land of Kings with his infectious dance-floor pop after playing its inaugural showcase way back in 2009 with Greco-Roman. T.E.E.D aka Orlando Higginbottom has remixed the likes of Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Professor Green as well as putting out critically acclaimed ‘Trouble’ album – an infectious slab of dance floor pop that earned its place onto pretty much every “Best of 2012” list worth mentioning.
Ninja Tune-signed post-dubstep producer Raffertie will be airing some new offerings, having already pricked the good ears of Mary Anne Hobbs, Simon Reynolds and Rob da Bank with his early slew of bass heavy productions. Also added to the bill for The Castle Stage – Land of Kings‘s new specially produced outdoor venue – is Landshapes (formerly Lulu & The Lampsades), opening the festival at 2pm.
Elsewhere, the eagerly awaited line-up for BUGGED OUT 10X10 is announced, which sees ten DJs play their ten all time favourite dance records. DJs include Croydon’s prodigal son Skream, the man from UNKLE James Lavelle, glitch-pop jock Riton, tech house purveyors Krankbrother, Dalston basement party pioneers Disco Bloodbath, History Clock honcho Nathan Gregory Wilkins, and previously announced acts Hannah Holland, Kiwi, Dan Beaumont, and Tayo.
Last (but never least), Hackney rave legends and proto-junglists Shut Up & Dance complete the 2013 line-up with a special “Heritage Set”.
