SPLORE 2015: a little taste of what’s to come
Written by Admin on August 20, 2014
Just seven months from another magical installment of your favourite summer festival, Splore 2015 is taking shape and they’re super stoked to be able to start telling you all about it.
The Splore team are working on a heady brew of eclectic artists for 2015. Their policy is to try and secure the acts that they know will deliver great live performances – not hype and attitude. All will be revealed over the coming months but in the meantime here’s a little taster:
1. THE CORRESPONDENTS promise to bring it.
Prepare to be amazed Splorers. This act is set to become everyone’s “festival highlight”.
The Correspondents are currently one of the UK’s best live acts earning their place on the Daily Telegraph’s “Top 10 acts at Glastonbury” two years in a row… and now it’s Splore’s turn… with not one but two performances over the weekend of 20-22 February 2015! The Correspondents are Mr. Bruce and Chucks. They take the multi-genre approach, with producer Chucks throwing down a solid history of dance music. From Jazz to Electro, 60’s beat to Hip Hop to Blues to Drum n Bass. Seasoned with Mr. Bruce’s vocals depicting the trials and tribulations of Love, Lust and Loss, they create a unique sound that avoids easy categorisation. On stage they take form as a DJ/MC duo with Chucks hurling tracks at the audience and a flamboyantly costumed Mr. Bruce whipping up a frenzy with high speed scatting and incredulous dance moves.

2, RODNEY P aka the RIDDIM KILLA
And oh yes! It’s the one and only Mr Riddim Killa himself.
Rodney P, will make his Splore debut this coming February. The godfather of UK hip hop will bring his distinctly London sound to have the Splore massive skanking by the seaside.
3. Swing to the beat of DR CAT
Electro swing and vintage remixes are taking clubland by storm and what better practicioner of this art than Dr Cat.
Italian born, London loving (now Sydney-based), DJ, composer, producer and Green Queen Music record label boss, , Dr Cat will bring two scintillating dance sets to Splore. Collaborating with the best in the business, Luca Gatti aka Dr Cat has worked in the underground electronic music scene with a particular affinity for all things Swing, Balkan, dub, Electro and vintage sounds. This includes the likes of Gaudi, Z Star, General Levy, Spacepolice, JStar, DJ Pony, 99 Posse, Bob Andy, Feel Good Productions and alongside Asian Dub Foundation and English National Opera.
