The bill for Belgium’s Dour festival continues to swell.
50Weapons brothers-in-arms Modeselektor will head up a label showcase. The German duo’s omnivorous beat music will likely be one of the biggest draws of the weekend. Techno/breakbeat specialist Shed will perform a live set, no doubt pulling from recent LP The Killer, and fellow 50Weapons signings Bambounou, Phon.o and Otto Von Schirach will also be stopping by.
Elsewhere, Carl Craig – let’s be frank, no introduction necessary – will be spinning records. The inimitable Rustie will be showcasing his synapse-frazzling maniac music, and Ben UFO will represent the Hessle Audio crew. Loefah will play a special retrospective dubstep set, and Pinch will appear alongside Adrian Sherwood. D’n’b young buck Rockwell, Young Echo’s Kahn and Dave Clarke are also on the bill. Further additions include Huxley, Dusky, Len Faki, Compuphonic, Loadstar, Downlink, Roni Size, High Contrast, Cyril Hahn and Surfing Leons.
They join the likes of Flying Lotus, JETS, Nathan Fake, Smashing Pumpkins, Amon Tobin, Trentemøller, Nina Kraviz and Karenn. Dour takes place from July 18-21 – for more information, head here.
