Festival news all around but here’s one that actually excites me. Gottwood have just added even more names to the list!
Joining the Gottwood Family will be the Barcelona based Hivern Discs Label owner John Talabot, known for his slow moving and ebullient house. Alongside John Talabot, Gottwood welcomes the return of Rush Hour records (and York favorite) Hunee, a Gottwood favourite following an epic set in the Gottwood Forest during the 2015 event.
Gottwood are also excited to announce rising star John Dimas, who will bring his stripped back avante-garde house and techno sound to a Gottwood stage, whilst hotly tipped Manchester grime collective LEVELZ take over an intimate corner of the welsh woodland.
Ensuring all musical bases are covered jazz, funk and fusion band The Expansions, who are best known as Andrew Ashongs session band, will play Live on the Lawn Stage as will the enthused raw groove, funk and hip-hop sounds of The Max Graef Band and the afro edit sounds of Sheffield’s Al Zander aka Lodger.
Futureboogie’s Maxxi Soundsystem, twin duo The Menendez Brothers and One Records head honcho Subb-An will be bringing more up front party attitude to the forest, along with the well respected Leicester based club night and label collective City Fly. Manchester based crowd-loving crate-digger Neil Diablo will also be onboard, playing solo and also alongside Crazy P original member Jim Baron as their Ron & Neil collaboration.
