The versatile beatsmith and BBC 6 Music Mix’s newest resident DJ has been quite busy crafting his first solo album to be released later this year.
A number of festival favorites will return this year, including Dirtybird label chief and Detroit native, Claude VonStroke as well as global dance sensation, John Digweed.
