LEN FAKI

LEN FAKI

Fresh from headlining Pressure's sell-out End of Year Party in December, in-demand Berlin-based DJ, producer and acclaimed label owner Len Faki will make a welcomed return to Glasgow headlining the South Stage on the opening day of this year's festival. One of the biggest artists in techno and known for his outstanding audio-visual adventurous sets, Len Faki has been a resident at Berlin's prime techno club Berghain since its opening in 2004. Len Faki's sound is constantly evolving; responsible for some of the biggest anthems in techno including his 2007 release of 'Rainbow Delta/ Mekong Delta', his addition to the 2015 Riverside Festival is helping shape one of the best electronic music line-ups Scotland will see this year.

JOY ORBISON

JOY ORBISON

Joy Orbison is renowned for his forward-thinking style, with his debut single 'Hyph Mngo' a celebrated dub/2-step track of the late noughties. Co-owner of the Doldrums label, Joy Orbison is sure to rock the stage at this year's Riverside Festival in Glasgow with his combination of house, dub and disco.

Optimo

Optimo

Optimo: is DJ duo Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes, whose legendary Optimo night in Glasgow (and around the world) mixes up techno, electro, rock and other assorted records out of leftfield. Optimo started in 1997, though Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes had each been DJing separately for ten years. Both had started out playing different music - Twitch - electro, noisy rock and the eighties New York punk funk of Liquid Liquid (from who they borrowed their name) and Wilkes reggae, funk and jazz. Optimo have been one of the corner stones of the Electric Frog shows and festival organisers are delighted they will be performing on 2015.

BEN UFO

BEN UFO

Ben UFO founded Hessle Audio with Ramadanman and Pangaea in 2007. He is one of the few DJs in the UK to make a name for himself solely as a DJ, without having entered the world of production. Ben is massively in demand and was voted as the 7th most important DJ of 2014 by Resident Advisor and holds down a weekly show on Rinse FM. Ben will be playing a completely unique back to back DJ set with Glasgow's Optimo.

JULIO BASHMORE

JULIO BASHMORE

Also playing the opening day of The Riverside Festival is Julio Bashmore; a producer in the one of the world's most thriving music scenes, Bashmore’s attack on house music throughout his impressive career has seen him cultivate a take on the genre unlike any other. Appearing to burst on the scene in 2009, the Julio Bashmore EP for Claude VonStroke's highly influential Dirtybird label was essentially a lifetime in the making. Influenced through old hip-hop cassettes, Julio's interest in electronic music began in earnest after hearing Daft Punk's 'Da Funk' record via an older sibling. Experimenting with synthesizers and guitars, playing in bands and finally taking to the desks, Bristol's Julio Bashmore has made a name for himself through his forward-thinking use of bass-indebted sounds of the Dirtybird label.

ROBERT HOOD

ROBERT HOOD

Robert Hood is one of the original innovators of minimal Techno music from Detroit. Now residing in Alabama with his family, Robert has time on his hands to devote himself to God and Techno. His Floorplan album, 'Paradise' earned numerous accolades in the media on its release and continues to receive mammoth support on the airwaves and in clubland. Floorplan sees Hood focuses his attention firmly on the dancefloor and has taken his name across the techno/house divide. In a world full of generic dancefloor music, Floorplan is Robert Hood's vision as seen through a house music prism. Floorplan is here to make you dance as can be witnessed on veritable club bombs like 'Phobia' and 'Glory B'.

Fresh from playing a rapturous set at Glasgow's Sub Club last year, the all-conquering techno duo Karenn (live) will play a live set not to be missed at this summer's Riverside Festival. The duo's high-strength tech-house sound has been causing a stir on the live circuit since they joined forces in 2011, and have since released a full 12 inch and toured cities around the world dropping their hardware heavy sound to the masses.

SLAM

SLAM

SLAM: 2014 is fast becoming one of the biggest years in the career of the dynamic Glaswegian duo, SLAM.

Their quarter century of exploits have seen them travel far and wide, leaving scorch marks on dance floors everywhere while taking their uncompromising vision of Techno around the world.

Closer to home, since 1997, SLAM have curated the Slam Tent at Scotland's biggest festival T in the Park, with some of the world's best known DJs and live acts playing alongside underground cutting edge talent on their monumental stage. Their firmly established monthly club events in Glasgow – 'Pressure' at the Arches and 'Return To Mono' at the Sub Club - are ranked amongst the best nights out on the planet. Over the last two years, the pair have also developed Slam Radio, delivering some of the best DJs and music that techno has to offer to a massive and loyal weekly following.
