With a lineup that celebrates a huge list of genres that celebrates rave culture in all of it’s lovely, versatile glory, hitting the likes of DnB, jungle, grime, garage, hardcore and so much more, Tranzmission is well and truly spoiling festival goers for choice - luckily we’ve offered a helping hand. With old and new acts appearing over the day-long party and a range of genres and styles being offered, we’ve selected some of the acts we consider unmissable at this year’s edition.
The mainstream success of Chicago-raised Secondcity first came about in 2014 with the release of his chart-topping single, ‘I Wanna Feel’, which took the UK airwaves by storm and instantly shot the house DJs career into the ranks of the greats, with a revival to his name established with the release of numerous remixes and tracks for various labels in recent years. With the sounds of classic house and garage playing a huge influence in his live sets, you should expect nothing but the grooviest beats from Secondcity as he fronts the Audiowhore stage at Tranzmission this weekend.
When the reigning godfather of grime Wiley writes a song about his admiration of a rapper - it’s probably a pretty good indicator of the lyrical skill and artistry of an act, it’s an even greater indicator that you should witness this live if you get the chance. This is the case for P Money, who Wiley stated, “That's why I practice, so I stay on point like P Money”, over and over again in his 2017 Godfather track. Don’t take his word for it though, see his flow over cold, cold bars for yourself as the grime don is at London’s Tranzmission festival.
Starting from the young age of sixteen during the ‘80s, Slipmatt’s appreciation for dance music came as a result of being exposed to popular genres from that era in Britain such as punk, ska and dub, which went on to influence his later-in-life passion for bringing about the rise of hardcore techno in the early 1990s. With the rave explosion and underground music scene of dance styles like house, techno and drum ‘n’ bass playing a key part in his position as a leader of the growing happy hardcore nation, the Essex-born DJ, producer and United Dance label boss is ready to show off his skills as the don of happy hardcore.
Having recently released his debut full length album Novelist Guy, this young star on the rise has proved his namesake with the content of his incredible bars, as wordplay and lyrical genius seems to be a staple in this kid’s sound. Having also lent his flow to the likes of Chase & Status and Tom Misch, the talent of this emcee seems to know no bounds.
For fans of grime, DnB, hip hop and everything in between, this eclectic DJ will surely supply the goods. Often collaborating and offering his high standards of production to rap star Ghetts, his grime beats combined with cut up samples of nostalgic house is a mix that’ll make you move. Take your dancing shoes if you’re headed to see this guy, and get those gunfingers at the ready!
See all of these acts take to London’s Finsbury Park on Sunday 10th June for Tranzmission Festival.
