ELITE FORCE COMES AS ONE

Elite Force

One DJ. One Room. All Night Long

THE NEXT GENERATION

Happa

The speed with which Leeds techno wunderkind Happa has risen to hype levels is almost frightening. Appearing as if from nowhere in 2012 with a debut 12 for Church — a label launched by the forward-thinking south London club of the same name — he's caught the ear of the bass and techno cognoscenti alike with a sound hewn from onyx synths, sepulchral, industrial clanking drums and a roughneck garage swing that keeps the dance bubbling.

SWEET HARMONY

Melody's Echo Chamber

It's a period of transition for Melody Prochet. The Aix-en-Provence-born, Parisian free spirit behind Melody's Echo Chamber, along with Kevin Parker of Perth, Australia space rock sensations Tame Impala, is poised to make an indelible impression on modern music. She's destined to be a big star.

Clouded Rainbow

Matt Walsh

Clouded Vision definitely doesn't refer to the clear path Matt Walsh has trodden in his rise up the quality electronic music rankings. Growing up in Clacton-On-Sea in Essex, he remembers hearing The Prodigy's 'Experience' album at an early age “and everyone drawing happy faces on their homework books. I had to find out what this was all about, and it started there.”

Plump DJs

Those Plump DJs, Andy Gardner and Lee Rous, have their latest comp — 'Dirty Weekend' — out this month on Grand Hotel Records. Their seventh mix album follows acclaimed sets on Global Underground, Fabric and Finger Lickin' over the past decade or so.
