Melt! Festival First out 2014


First Out 2014

Portishead, Röyksopp & Robyn (Do It Again 2014), Moderat, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Haim, Metronomy and many more confirmed.

Preparations for this year’s Melt! Festival, which takes place from 18th to 20th July in Ferropolis, are well underway. But before we will reveal the first 40+ acts, we want to say thank you to all of you who helped us win the »Best Medium-Sized Festival« award in the Festival Awards Europe. Your votes were very much appreciated. So now for some exciting news for all of you who have been eagerly awaiting our first line-up announcement as we can reveal the first names to play beneath the impressive coal-mining diggers in the ›City of Iron‹.

We’re thrilled to confirm that Portishead will be honouring us with an exclusive performance under the Ferropolis night sky this year. Since the mid-90s, the legendary Bristolian three-piece has been shaping the musical landscape, capturing the zeitgeist with the distinguished sound of its debut »Dummy« and the self-titled sophomore album. In 2008, Portishead returned with »Third« and an exciting avant-garde approach, once more challenging the boundaries of contemporary music.

Once again, Röyksopp and Robyn joined forces and went back into the studio together. Merging the best of both worlds, Röyksopp & Robyn Do It Again 2014 will fortunately make its Germany exclusive stopover at Melt! this year. An energetic blast of Scandinavian electro pop is coming our way.

Last year, only a few weeks before the release of their second album, »Moderat II«, Moderat got behind the decks at our Melt!Selektor Stage. After having almost completely sold out their upcoming tour, you’ll get another chance to see them live in Ferropolis this summer. We’re also delighted to welcome Fritz Kalkbrenner back to the fold, one of the Melt! enthusiasts since day one. Dragging glittery 80s pop into the 21stcentury, Haim will be travelling all the way from sunny LA to the Melt! peninsula. Arriving from the UK, Metronomy will be presenting their fourth album, »Love Letters«. The Melt!Selektor Stage as well as residentEllen Allien and her Bpitch crew will join us once more while the directional house imprint, Innvervisions, will celebrate its first special with label bosses Âme (DJ-Set) and Dixon plus Mano Le Tough, Marcus Worgull, Recondite (live), Kim Ann Foxman (DJ-Set) and more.

DJ Double S // Al Centro Della Scena – Mixtape

Chi è il dj Al centro della Scena? Direttamente dalla Tempi Duri Records, l’etichetta indipendente di Fabrizio Tarducci, meglio noto come Fabri Fibra (mentre il boss è impegnato con il nuovo disco e intanto ne sforna uno con o contro i Crookers – L’Italiano Balla), Dj Double S passa alle macchine un mixtape torrido e rancido – dolce forse per un paio di tracce – dal titolo inconfondibile.

Al Centro della Scena’ chiama dentro tutti, freestyler, rapper, crew, solisti del genere a un hoster Amir (Red Carpet Music) che si è occupato di ‘invitare’ gli artisti a festeggiare i 20 anni di carriera del Dj al centro della scena. Con ringraziamenti direttamente in cover. Immancabili i nomi del  rap italiano sotto contratto Universal Fabri Fibra, Marracash, Dogo, Emis Killa, Clementino Iena White e Rocco Hunt, ENSI, Turi, Killa, Nays, Ghemon, i Tasters Stokka e Mad Buddy, Rancore, Lefty, Primo, Rapstar, Street fighters, MixUp, Baby K, Raige, Il Turco, LowLow, Nayt, Parix, E Green, Raise BeatBox, MauryB, Er Costa, per 31 tracce ‘e strofe inedite’ che fanno sudare.

‘Un mixtape che celebra i vent’anni di carriera di DJ Double S – spiegano da Muvimo Studio che ha fatto le presentazioni su Vimeo. Vent’anni di musica, tra serate e mixtapes, sempre al centro della scena. Un mixtape che celebra chi fa Rap da molti anni, coloro che si sono affermati con dedizione e tenacia ma anche chi è arrivato dopo e che si sta guadagnando del meritato spazio al centro della scena. Un mixtape che celebra lo stato attuale del Rap Italiano, oramai non più solo per pochi ma riconosciuto come un vero genere al centro della scena musicale. Un mixtape che celebra chi la musica la produce, economicamente si intende, cioè le major e le tantissime etichette indipendenti che hanno spinto e continuano a spingere i loro artisti al centro della scena’
