As if the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival lineup wasn’t exciting enough, the latest announcements are set to make it even bigger and better.

They recently added a staggering further 24 acts to the lineup. This means just under 40 artists will be taking to the various stages at the festival, over the three days, with genre bending and melding acts with roots in hip hop, house, techno, electronica.

New acts include: Detroit techno stalwart Rolando, French DJ/producer Chloé lauded for melding art and music, Berlin’s Ralf Kollmann, head honcho of powerhouse imprint Mobilee.

The local lineup is no less impressive with critically acclaimed artist Petite Noir returning to perform his first ever live show in South Africa, along with Sibot & Toyota and hip-hop quartet Driemanskap.

The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival will take place from 5 – 7 February 2016. It is one not to miss!

New Music: Astrid S

I recently stumbled upon the phenomenon that is Astrid S thanks to Finson’s incredible remix of her recently released single, ‘Hyde’.

On the remix, the Norwegian native’s ethereal and transient vocals soar over Finson’s delicately crafted pop beats and the result is something spectacular.

Astrid S rose to prominence last year, performing with Matoma and her singles, ‘Paper Thin’ and ‘Hyde’. She is currently signed to Universal and if last year is anything to go by, you can expect even bigger and better things from her.

Enjoy!
