Big Chill Festival 2009

One of the highlights of the summer festival season is on the horizon and it’s looking mighty fine from where I’m standing. Orbital, Basement Jaxx, Spiritualized, Friendly Fires, Lindstrom, Alice Russell, Bonobo, Hexstatic, Dub Syndicate, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mulatu & The Heliocentrics, Telepathe, Erik Truffaz, Jazzsteppa, Quantic & His Combo Barbaro, The Field… DAMN SON! And that’s just a handful of the liver-than-live acts at Big Chill this year.

Among those taking care of DJ business will be: Norman Jay MBE, Metro Area, Greg Wilson, Tom Middleton, Congo Natty, Mr Scruff, Kode9 & SpaceApe, The Heatwave, Tim Goldsworthy, Paul White & Bullion, DJ Format, Ramadanman, Tomb Crew, The Nextmen, Bass Clef, Floating Points, MJ Cole and perhaps the man most-likely-to-smash-it-at-a-festival… Toddla T.

The Steel City’s digi-dancehall warrior has been slaying dancefloors for the past year as his reputation has expanded into Radio 1′s consciousness. Cue the haters moaning about fidgit house… SHUT YOUR NOISE! As far as I can make out, Toddla has always spun for the ladies first and foremost, so that means low on the man-music and high on the UK Funky, garage classics, dancehall retweaks and broken jams. Just check his forthcoming FabricLive CD…
