He has also gone to great lengths to curate the line-up and has invited some of his peers both past and present to celebrate the momentous occasion with him.

Swindle’s fellow Deep Medi brethren Silkie & Quest will be joining forces for a back-to-back set whilst Von D will be laying down some of his new bits which are due to be release on Get Darker later this year.

FOUND: The Warehouse After Party (Saturday)

Taking place at the beloved Great Suffolk Street WarehouseFOUND will invade one of London’s most sought after nightspots to see the party through until the early hours. The warehouse event follows a precedent set by the carefully programmed late-night series that FOUND started with two years ago. The festival wouldn’t be complete without a late night offering and this one promises to be something special, as a select line-up is flanked by the grandeur and high production values of this London Bridge warehouse venue. The line-up takes a deeper turn to embrace a set of British and global talents fully focused on electronic music of the highest order. Evolving from the sunshine fuelled daytime programme at Haggerston Park, the After Party promises a harder, hedonistic run of house and techno with extended sets played by some of the finest purveyors on the underground circuit today. On the verge of releasing her anticipated solo album in July, daytime headliner Maya Jane Coles returns to rule the night. Armed with a wealth of new material Maya is ready to prove her versatility as one of the finest DJs in the world. The highly respected Swiss selector Deetron is also in check for a rare London appearance. Combining an old-school mentality with a fresh approach he has continued the legacy of Chicago house and Detroit techno with a prolific string or releases spanning over a decade, and 2013 set to be his biggest year to date. The rising sounds of Maayan Nidam has been sending waves through the industry following the 2012 release of her second LP ‘New Moon’ on Luciano’s coveted imprint Cadenza. Shaping sound to fit her own singular sensibilities, her deep, immersive sets fuse minimal structures with organic and traditional influences to create a truly unique sound, unerringly taking dancefloors to special, unexpected places. Joyce Muniz’ transatlantic upbringing is evident throughout her body of work. Pairing European club sounds from her hometown Vienna with tropical percussive influences from her Brazilian roots. Initiating proceedings will be international party starters, WildKats and home-grown East London talent Palace. One of London’s most discerning club brands will provide a second arch of sound, delivered by an equally exciting set of underground talents. Announced shortly. FOUND is ready to embrace the night in the vast arches of the Great Suffolk Street Warehouse. This is one after party not to be missed!
