For those of you who haven’t managed to buy / blag tickets for Glastonbury yet. Have no fear, you may be missing out on a few incredible bands but you can still catch me and the CHROME KIDS before we head off there to rock it once again. We shall be doing a rare appearance this Friday and I’m really looking forwards to testing some killer tune on you all. If you’re still not familiar with what we do, have a little listen to this 20 minute mix we did for BBC Radio Wales. You can also check the blog at http://www.chromekids.com which has tons of great new music plus our BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra mixes also.
We have some guests coming to play as well. firstly is DR MEAKER, a true Bristolian legend who shall be doing a special DJ Set for us (we shall be bringing the full live experience later in the summer). His tracks have graced many a Radio 1 show from Pete Tong and Zane Lowe to Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens plus look out for some great remixes for the likes of The King Blues, Mr Fogg and William Orbit.
PLASTIC THUMBS first sent me one of their mixes from the Chrome Kids blog a while back and I was instantly impressed. A great selection of tunes from Dubstep to Glitch hop, Dancehall to D’n'B. Since then they have dropped yet another killer mix and a bunch of bootlegs that have been doing major danage across the blogosphere. When they said they were passing nearby to play at the Beachbreak Live festival I had to invite them over for a visit.
LEX UMBRA are possibly one of the liveliest Hip-hop crews in the city and it was really refreshing to hear them embrace the bass heavy Glitch-hop sound that lends itself almost as much to Dubstep as Hip-hop. These guys always bring alot of energy onstage too so they’re perfect to help tear the roof off our Friday nights.
Check their track on our Soundcloud. There’s a player just to your right.
