Beacons Festival 2013

Beacons

Greetings. From Beacons.

That’s what we’ll be saying August 16th-18th when HD decamps to the Funkirk Estate (come on…) in glamorous Skipton for Beacons Festival 2013. As ever, there are too many people we’re excited to see. RBMA, Resident Advisor and Noisey are all hosting stages and here are some things from some people that are playing:

Exciting huh?

The take-home message from all of this is COME ALONG. We’ll bring an iPod dock, play some tunes and call it a Human Drizzle stage. Deal?

Pazes – Sleeping Dolls EP

Would you believe it, another RBMA graduate making waves.

Pazes, otherwise known as Lucas Febraro, has put together a gem of an EP. ‘Sleeping Dolls’ is a spaced-out, slightly disconcerting selection of tracks, humanised by Biblo’s vocals.

You know it’s good because Kompakt-affiliated label Time No Place are putting out. A credible stamp of approval, if ever there was one.

H∆SHTAG$

Hello lunchtime viewing…

Red Bull Music Academy are expanding their output yet again, this time with a web-documentary series, H∆SHTAG$. We’ll excuse the slightly (very) silly name as Episode 1, which deals with the burst of recent contemporary R&B, is actually pretty interesting. How To Dress Well, Miguel and The Weeknd producer Zodiac all offer their thoughts on this renaissance and its roots and implications. Zodiac has also donated a track to the cause, and it’s lovely listening. All stuttering beats and twisted vocals.

Future episodes are said to include interviews with TNGHT, Mount Kimbie, Flying Lotus and Main Attrakionz so we’ll certainly be watching this particular space.

What a multi-media post.
