Siren Bristol: Hospitality On The Harbour x [SEQUENCES]
Tel: +44 (0)7951 408632
New for 2022, music event series Siren, has announced ‘Hospitality on the Harbour’ as it’s Saturday line-up.
The main stage will feature Hybrid Minds (+ Tempza); alongside support from Kings of the Rollers and Inja; a twenty-year celebratory set from High Contrast; with Grafix, Flava D, Etherwood and more also taking to the stage.
Curated by celebrated Bristol label Hospitality, these drum and bass heavyweights join dance legends Groove Armada, who take to the Siren stage on Friday as part of their last full live UK tour, with support from Radio 6 Music DJ and Fun Lovin Criminals frontman Huey Morgan and stellar female representation from label Saffron Records and Scarlett O’Malley.
Saturday’s headliners, Hybrid Minds, accompanied by regular MC, Tempza, are a phenomenon of soulful drum and bass music. With a history of trailblazing releases, including many on their own Hybrid Music label, they've established themselves as one of the most important acts on the D&B scene. After receiving plaudits for their debut “Mountains” album, their second, “Elements”, reveals the multiple facets to their sound. Garnering huge acclaim, they blend crate-dug classics, brand new material, and more leftfield selections to create unique moments.
Serum, Voltage, Bladerunner and Inja have become D&B figureheads individually but have come together as Kings Of The Rollers. As solo artists they’ve released music across the scene’s biggest labels including Hospital Records, 31, V Recordings, Metalheadz, Ram and Low Down Deep and collected multiple awards in the process. Their debut track “Burnt Ends” became a key catalyst for the “foghorn” bass trend which has dominated clubs and raves.
Having signed exclusively to Hospital Records, Kings Of The Rollers released their self-titled debut album in 2019 picking up “Best Album” at the national drum & bass awards. They followed this up in 2020 with their “Main Event EP” and remixes for Sigma and Shy FX. Their sets are as unpredictable as they are explosive, switching from the foundation to the cutting edge at breakneck speed. Inja’s lightning-fast reactions and uplifting lyrics provide the perfect accompaniment.
High Contrast has been at the leading edge of the drum and bass scene for 15 years. He curated music for the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony; he’s worked with everyone from Underworld to DJ Fresh; he did a timeless Fabric live mix; and he’s one of dance music’s elite remixers, achieving acclaim for reworks of Adele, Duke Dumont, White Stripes, Kanye West and, of course, London Grammar’s ‘Strong’. High Contrast co-produced Underworld’s latest album, the revitalized sounds of ‘Barbara, Barbara, We Have A Shining Future’. He also worked with DJ Fresh and Dizzee Rascal last year on the Radio 1 A-listed ‘How Love Begins’ single.
The second stage will be hosted by Bristol based label Born on Road and The Blast. Drawing from a range of up-and-coming D&B and jungle acts, it's a diverse line-up of well-known names and fresh talent, including the likes of Born on Road co-founders Aries and Kelvin 373, Gray and A Little Sound, and legendary Bristol MCs Carasel and Jakes.
