WWA 2016 // Introducing: Deft

November 25, 2015

As we continue to gear up for the Worldwide Awards on the 16th January, we’ve put together another intro profile to help y’all get a handle on the many bright and shining talents who are populating this year’s bill. You can buy tickets now at the final release price of £35.

Our next act to be profiled is genre-hopping producer Deft, whose releases draw on hip hop, house, jungle and have a particular affinity to Chicago footwork. He featured on the last Brownswood Electric compilation, is a well-established member of the WotNot family and has received support from the likes of Mark Pritchard and DJ Shadow.
