On Saturday 15th June FOUND christens summer in London with a unique one-day outdoor showcase. Cutting edge electronic sounds come to Shoreditch’s Haggerston Park. Born as a series of 15 underground club events almost two years ago, FOUND was amongst those pioneering the melting pot of sub genres that came to define the re-birth of house and techno in the capital and London’s love for all things electronic.
Pushing this ethos forward, Saturday 15th June see five of the most discerning club brands in the big smoke fuse their distinct musical roots. Joining forces to curate a cross-section of the finest talent from across the UK, Europe and further afield, these stellar promoters have programmed their own stages with a diverse pool of artists. Unified by a love of four-to-the-floor and influenced by musical movements forged in the likes of Berlin, Chicago, Detroit, in New York and here on our own doorstep, this selection of acts promises nothing more than a blend of some truly exciting DJs and producers. Whether making waves in their respective scenes or sitting at the top of their game, this program of artists celebrates genuinely talented craftsmen with a shared passion and devotion to sound. Accompanying this eclectic line-up offering will be a hand-picked list of mouth-watering foods – a nod to London’s street food revolution that alongside electronic music, has played a seminal role in the city’s cultural development in recent years.
Playing out the headline slot as the sun sets on FOUND will be woman of the moment Maya Jane Coles. Her meteoric rise to success has seen her become one of electronic musicʼs most sought after producers, with her hotly anticipated debut album about to drop later this year. Following on from a stomping set at last yearʼs Street Party, MK will return for 2013, bringing new production partner Lee Foss and some anticipated fresh material. Further summer sounds will come courtesy of garage-house aficionado and FOUND favourite Huxley, Leeds based production duo Audiojack and rising stars Shadow Child, Santé, Cyril Hahn and Voyeur. Along with these is a whole array of other artists so make sure you get your tickets quick.
