South West Four returns to London’s scenic Clapham Common this August, firmly established as one of the UK’s most important and influential electronic music festivals. After recently being awarded DJ Magazine’s coveted ‘Best British Festival’ at the Best of British Awards, this year’s offering will close what will be a truly monumental summer for the Capital.
For the first time in our nine year history, the Clapham carnage will cease at 10pm. That’s an extra hour to indulge in the scintillating sights and sounds of the UK’s premier inner city music event. So with an extra sixty minutes to play with, this year’s line-up will be our biggest ever, showcasing an array of prime international artists on a scale never before experienced at SW4. Inspirational talent synonymous with South West Four’s success, are joined by a host of DJ debuts and manic live acts. Furthermore with improved sound levels, a freeze on 2011 ticket prices and numerous other enhancements, SW4 2012 will bring to the English summer an even greater festival experience.
Skrillex has been awarded with the coveted closing slot for our main stage hosted by UKF Bass Culture in a London festival EXCLUSIVE. A real musical coup for SW4, expect the obligatory heart thumping bass lines and a mesmeric array of stutters and stops. Set to pummel Clapham Common into submission, this is a performance guaranteed to go down as one of the greatest in SW4 history. You have been warned.
Skream & Benga; two pioneers synonymous with quality bass music. From the initial embers of dubstep, Skream & Benga have ignited its progression into a now critically acclaimed genre. Hence a ground breaking BBC Radio 1 slot, as well as crafting self-titled events that regularly grace the likes of FABRICLIVE and The Warehouse Project. Along with regular front men and vocal "go-to" Sgt Pokes and Youngman, this is right up there with SW4's main attractions. Having transfixed mass crowds at the grandiose settings of O₂ Academy Brixton and Warehouse Project, Ram Records boss Andy C brings his audio visual arc outdoors - for what's set to be one almighty rave. An unrelenting enthusiasm and unquestionable skill means the Clapham stage is sharpened for the 'Executioner.' DJ Fresh is a stalwart of the British drum & bass scene. Having reached #1 in the UK singles chart with 'Louder' in 2011 as well as launch his massive live act, this summer sees Fresh go back to his roots at SW4 with two turntables and a mixer. Raw and in the flesh…
Nominated alongside the likes of Skrillex in the BBC Sound of 2012 poll, Flux Pavilion is a red hot talent taking the dubstep world by storm. Best known for his track 'Bass Cannon' and for running Circus Records alongside Doctor P, Flux's debut at South West Four is long overdue and one of the most eagerly anticipated. Borgore is making huge waves in electronic music having fronted mammoth sold out US and Australian tours. An incisive sound that made his UKF Bass Culture performance at Brixton Academy truly innovative, Borgore's own imprint 'Buygore' underpins his individual take on dubstep. We'll be hotly anticipating some trademark Israeli-step from the man, bringing his immersive take on all things dub.
Friction AKA 'The Shogun Warrior' has been smashing dancehalls worldwide over the last decade. His label Shogun Audio has released highly acclaimed EP's, LP's, and Singles from all drum & bass'
heavyweights producers. Ultimately his lightning quick three deck wizardry that gives Friction the edge. Expect a frenetic fusion of hard, jump up and soulful D&B. Doctor P is one of the brains behind the infamous Circus Records. Responsible for releasing great party sounding tracks like 'Sweet Shop' and 'Superbad', SW4 are more than pleased to invite him to the Common and get the crowd skanking! Since 2009 Redlight has helped create a new genre which today receives support from all over the globe. Bassline and party vibes have corrupted sound systems worldwide, thanks to Redlight and his extensive list of collaborations with the likes of Toddla T, Jenna G and Ms.Dynamite. Finally new kid on the block Dillon Francis, having first appeared on the radar after playing an exclusive Moombahton set on the Boiler Room. Recently he has been touring North America with Nero, plus delving in to other influences like dubstep. An eclectic showcase like no other.
So there you have it. A delectable deviant display of the world's finest bass music acts, which cements the billing of UKF's Bass Culture's presence. SW4 the only place to find this scorching alfresco playground with pupils schooled in dark debauchery, dirty beats and raging riffs. With many of the world's leading house, electro and techno artists to be announced alongside these in the coming weeks we can safely say that Sunday is no longer the day of rest...
