| ADELINE |
Already scouted by the likes of Crosstown Rebels and Get Physical, Adeline is fast becoming one of the stars of the future on the international house music stage. Her music is laced with shimmering vocals and organic melodies whilst always remaining deep and hypnotic. With her first offering of the year dropping on Get Physical/Kindisch imprint in March, the Swedish producer, who also helped launch music website Soundcloud and presented Scandinavia’s biggest electronic music radio show, has recently relocated to London to focus her attentions on production. This turned out to be a wise move, with her tracks gaining support from house music’s key players such as Jamie Jones, M.A.N.D.Y, Anja Schnejder, Russ Yallop and David August. Labelled one to “keep an eye on” in 2012 by dance music institution Mixmag, Adeline is set to land herself in the collective consciousness of deep house connoisseurs and dance floor enthusiasts, and take the party scene by storm in the not so distance future.
| MATT FEAR |
Matt Fear is the latest Leeds born artist to make successful strides into the house music scene. His remix for Jamie Jones’ and Lee Foss’ Hot Waves label has been riding high in the Beatport house charts for months now, and 2012 has seen similar high profile releases unleashed left right and centre in addition to his debut artist album which drops on Louie Fresco’s MEXA Records later this year. With shows as far and wide as Oslo, Mexico, Cape Town, Moscow, Ibiza already under his belt, you can expect Matt to be rocking a club near you in the not so distant future.
| KREATURE |
Each of Kreature’s first 3 releases have waltzed their way into the Beatport nu-disco top 10 charts, and been spun by the likes of Solomun, Jamie Jones, David August, Kolombo, Ralph Lawson and more. His remix of 'Had Enough' climbed to number 2 in the charts, and typifies the nu-disco sound which has been so well received in 2012.
| IBELLINI |
