<post snipped, as very long>
Musically, Platform 12 has emerged from the breakbeat underground to
be known as one of the best genre-blurring electro discos around and
this NYE they are pulling together their biggest line-up to date.
Hybrid, global superstars, Sasha cohort and synonymous with
headlining massive events worldwide, will be making their long
awaited Platform 12 debut and what a time to do it. If ever there was
a dance act that conjured up the very feeling of heightened emotion
it would be Hybrid, so how very fitting they'll be down to play at
Platform 12 on NYE.
Joining Hybrid will be Cicada, where musically, references have been
made to the likes of Blondie, Can, New Order, The Sugarcubes, The
Cocteau Twins, Daft Punk and Quincy Jones, and have previously rocked
Platform 12 where they played live back in May. Cicada are a truly
unique proposition, melding their influences into a wholly original
sound has made them a unique prospect for the late noughties the
kind of band that the rock kids `get' just as much as club kids do.
The Rogue Element
The Rogue Element, winner of Breakspoll's best breakthrough producer
in 2005 then best producer & best remixer in 2006, has gone on to
have a series of club smashes including Fat Boy Slim's Star 69 remix
and has remixed just about everyone from The Crystal Method to Krafty
Kuts. Simply put, there is no more exciting talent emerging from
breaks than The Rogue Element and you can be sure that he'll be
showcasing all the new material from his highly anticipated 2nd
Size matters, and by any standard of measurement, Alex Metric's
talent is large, as made clear by the release of his new artist e.p.
Whatshewants. At just 26 years of age, Marine Parade's newest signing
has made a big splash as both DJ and producer. He's played gigs
spanning the globe from Fabric in London to Eastern European
festivals to Los Angeles clubs, and developed a significant rep for
his work in the studio assisting superstars ranging from Darren
Emerson to Adam Freeland - producing his next album.
