High Definition festival 2014 confirm Carl Cox, Gorgon City and more

High Definition festival 2013 completely sold out all 15,000 tickets and having outgrown their original Essex venue, High Definition festival returns for its fourth year bigger and better than ever!

Building on their success and having listened closely to the fan’s feedback, High Definition will be relocating to the picturesque Eridge Park for a weekend that promises to deliver the highest quality medium size dance event that the UK has to offer. Located on the border of Kent and Sussex and just two miles south of Tunbridge Wells, the stunning Eridge Park is a mere 45 minutes from both London and Brighton, providing the best possible and certainly most scenic venue for High Definition 2014.

With bookings being done by Team Love (the team behind Love Saves The Day Festival in Bristol and the Wow! Dance Village at Glastonbury), there’s plenty to excite from this initial line-up announcement.

Heading the bill is a man who needs almost no introduction; High Definition is bringing you the one and only house techno connoisseur Carl Cox on the main stage. Voted as the favourite DJ in the world by fans and major music magazines, Carl has been a veteran of Britain’s dance and rave scene since the late 80’s. After setting up two record labels and numerous club nights his musical tastes have taken the global club scene through hip-hop, disco, acid house and techno. His now legendary twelve-year residency at super club Space in Ibiza plus shows with other house pioneers such as Paul Oakenfold, Danny Rampling, Digweed and Sasha place him as a true living legend. Known for his energetic, forward-thinking sets and state of the art production, High Definition is ecstatic to welcome Carl as headliner.

Consisting of producers James Tadgell and John Clare as well as singer Vanya Taylor, London trio All About She are bringing a whole new dynamic to the music scene. Having already worked with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Wookie and Wretch 32, All About She are a name to watch out for in 2014.

As one third of Magnetic Man alongside Skream and Benga, Artwork has carved a reputation as a true pioneer of the dubstep sound. His presence at the forefront of the bass heavy genre has seen him collaborate with the likes of Katy B, John Legend and Ms Dynamite.

High Definition Festival 2014 will also see a collaborative performance from Drum and  Bass DJ and MC duo, Brockie and MC Det. Brockie’s credentials stem back to the formative years of pirate radio whilst MC Det is a legend in his own right having a career that stems all the way back to the early days of jungle.

Canadian DJ, producer, remixer and radio presenter B. Traits brings her selection of forward thinking, high energy, future music not only to her BBC Radio 1 show, ‘The Late Night Chameleon Club’ but also festival slots encompassing Glastonbury, Love Saves The Day, Hideout, Global Gathering and now thankfully High Definition 2014.

Electro house producer and live DJ Charlie Hedges talents have seen her become the presenter of the 4.4 million weekly listener Kiss FM Breakfast Show as well as presenting the Saturday night House Mix Show. Expect a mix of old and new house cuts and the best in EDM.

One of the co-founders of influential Drum and Bass label Full Cycle Recordings and a member of Roni Size’s Mercury Prize winning group Reprazent, DJ Die is a true representative of the cultural hotbed and revolutionary dance capitol that Bristol has become over the last 20 years.

Comprising of London based producers, Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell, Dogmatik signees Dusky have been reigning the techno world in the underground club scene since 2011, and their debut LP ‘Stick by This’ was an instant hit. With the support of techno producers from Jamie Jones to Pete Tong and Joy Orbison and championing by the likes of Annie Mac, Diplo, Skream and Seth Troxler, their track ‘Flo Jam’ gained the unexpected accolade iTunes Dance Single of the Year.

The classically trained piano player-cum-house producer Filsonik creates tunes with feet in both the formal music and streetwise dance camps. Born from the culturally rich and iconic New York house scene, the DJ’s career has seen him work very closely with fellow High Definition performers and house legends The Martinez Brothers. From Ibiza residencies to extensive European tours, he is a performer of a world-class calibre.

Since his break into house music in 2010, George Fitzgerald has released a steady stream of house tracks featuring his notorious garage and randb infused bass lines. 2012 saw George’s track ‘Child’ become a club hit, and highlighted his sound among other similar producers such as Disclosure and Duke Dumont in a new wave of well-crafted garage hooks and club-ready tracks. He now resides in Berlin when he’s now playing sell out tours or deep house club sets.

Both respected for their individual pursuits, Matt and Kye now make up distinctive North London producers Gorgon City. They face another exciting year as the most hotly-tipped duo in house music after their enormous successes with last year’s collaborations ‘Real’ ft Yasmin, ‘Ready for Your Love’ with MNEK, and ‘Intentions’ with Clean Bandit. Their polished, club-savvy sounds caught the attention of Annie Mac, Eats Everything and Mistajam and Gorgon City quickly became the soundtrack to 2013’s best club nights and festivals.

With her star rapidly on the rise, self-taught Birmingham DJ Hannah Wants (aka Hannah Alicia Smith) mixes the best in house with her own distinctly bass heavy sound. Having appeared alongside the iikes of Annie Mac, Disclosure, SBTRKT and Magnetic Man High Definition welcomes the addition of this upcoming young DJ to this year’s festival.

Born out of Hip Hop and now with both feet firmly in the world of Drum and Bass, the Harry Shotta Show perfectly showcases the skills of who is clearly one of the most gifted and versatile MCs in the UK. His talents have seen him conquer festivals and radio alike and his live show is one that is sure to turn heads at this year’s festival.

Following a chance meeting and hitting it off in a Brighton club Jon Rundell was signed to headliner Carl Cox’s record label, Intec. Jon’s music and infamous remixes have won him support across the techno world from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, and Dubfire and across the years he has performed in huge venues all over the world including a residency at The End and headline shows in Ibiza. His set is sure to be utterly unmissable.

Special guest Joy Orbison, aka London based producer Peter O’Grady’s style is a sublime mixture of house, techno and dubstep. His debut single ‘Hyph Mngo’ made him an underground success, which translated into worldwide airplay and club spins. Peter credits his uncle drum n bass DJ Ray Keith for getting him into DJ’ing at the age of 13 and since then he has played numerous festivals and dance floors all over the world, formed his own label and club and has topped respected DJ magazine lists to the acclaim of his peers.

Dedicated Drum and Bass DJ and producer Logan-D’s career has seen him expand from not only a dance floor filler and razor-sharp selector to a label boss and party promoter. His Low Down Deep raves have continued to grow and placed both him and his parties as the stuff of genuine scene legend.
