Flight Facilities, Hudson Mohawke and more join TheSoundYouNeed in Malta this August


In an age where the internet rules, YouTube is one of the key instruments in musical engagement, with online communities connecting the dots between creators and consumers to encourage exploration and provide more musical access points than ever before. YouTube subscription channel TheSoundYouNeed has demonstrated the power that comes with this new online reach, drawing millions of views since its birth in 2012 as it promotes the best in new music from all corners of the dancefloor.

Tickets for The Sound You Need go on sale Wednesday 23rd March 7pm

Taking its growing reputation and channelling it into events in France, America and the UK, TSYN has already begun its transition into a weighty actor in live events; now, the time has come for it to make the next natural step into the music world. And so begins TheSoundYouNeed Festival, which will hope to find a space for itself in the fiercely competitive summer festival market as it debuts in Malta this summer. Assisting with the task, Hudson Mohawke, Flight Facilities, Bondax and a good few more DJs lend their hands from August 26th to 29th.

Aussie duo Flight Facilities are top of the bill as it stands so far, adding a heaped spoonful of pop-sensibility disco and deep house to the hip hop and trap stylings of Hudson Mohawke, the Glaswegian producer whose huge sound has earned him production credits for Kanye and Drake to add to his impressive solo catalogue. HudMo’s performances as a DJ are infamously chaotic, combining his love of crossover RnB hooks, hip hop percussion and Irn Bru fizz to much the same effect as his energetic, manic and body breaking productions.

Well stocked in accessible deep house, TSYN also invite Karma Kid and Bondax, who’ll bring along their typical brand of feel good tracks from future garage, UK house and nu disco as they work alongside contemporaries like Maribou State. Also announced among the first wave of artists is electronic RnB duo Snakehips, whose recent work includes the help of Tinashe and Chance The Rapper on hit track All My Friends, and Jungle, who present their modern soul with a DJ set.

Artists will appear over the course of three days and three open air venues, soundtracking a perfect summer setting on the beaches of one of Europe’s best holiday islands. With warm weather guaranteed, TheSoundYouNeed will hope that their first festival has all of the ingredients for a killer summer event.
