The name High Contrast needs no introduction anymore; though when a young Lincoln Barrett signed on the dotted line back in 2000 he was a complete unknown. Signed on the strength of his mini-disc demos, the Welsh wonder has smashed his way through the drum and bass scene in no time at all.
His debut longplayer True Colours was released on Hospital to massive critical acclaim, paving the way for a move onto the international DJ circuit and helping him become remixer of choice for so many labels inside and outside of the drum and bass community. It was the club sessions and mixing skills that dominated the year since True Colours – with Lincoln making a name for himself as one of the hottest D&B DJs around.
More recently after reaching Drum and Bass superstardom he has releaed mix albums for Fabric and Mixmag and seen his White Stripes remix all over Radio 1. Missy Elliot and Blaze have also come knocking for a Contrast remix and the Worlds dance floors have been blown apart by that Gold Digger booty.

On a rig like Pure Filth‘s, dubstep comes to life, lumbering at you like a mutant animal from a feral dream, with fur and horns and claws and big teeth and wild eyes and a crushing gate.
I can’t say enough good things about Kode 9. His set was in the “dome” area, which on this 2nd night of the festival was being hosted by the Pure Filth Sound System, who have one of the most incredible sound set ups I’ve ever seen.
PURE FILTH IS MY FAV SOUNDSYSTEM!!!!!!!!!! On this planet!!!! But yea pure filth is a gift and a curse its bless 2 have a sound man like Sam XL who overstands both the performer and dj aspect of wanting 2 mash up the party with the HEAVIEST SOUND but still being able 2 maintain that soundman watch the red 2 much high 2 much bass thing yea like the performer is the pilot and sam xl is like the perfect wingman. And the curse is 4 the other soundsystems and soundman cause im so used 2 pushing the sound that i usually blow up overheat and piss off other soundsystems cause im used 2 pure filth sound and sam xl on the boards haha – Ras G
A unique producer with a unique style, Goth-Trad (of Rebel Familia) has emerged from the Japanese electronic scene in the last few years as one of the most arresting artists from his generation. Freely playing samplers, keyboards and even self-made instruments, ‘The Sound Originator’ Goth-Trad creates remarkable dance music with an abstract approach.
From abstract electronica to noise, from dub and reggae to jungle and rave music, grime to dubstep, Goth-Trad has always experimented and in the process developed his own unique style: blending influences and delivering music that is constantly evolving.
Invited by Mala in 2007 to play at the now legendary DMZ night, Goth-Trad became the first artist to play a live show at the event, showcasing his own take on the sound pioneered by so many of the DJs and producers who have appeared on the bill in the past. His eclectic and varied live show received an exceptional reception from the crowd, showing how far his sound had travelled since he started more than ten years ago.
As Hyperdub label head Kode 9 put it ‘Goth-Trad is a one-man army’, relentlessly working on spreading his music as far and to as many people as possible.

Amongst the throng of beatboxers emerging today, there are few like Beardyman. A tirelessly innovative performer, Beardyman has always pushed the boundaries of what people expect from human beatbox, merging phenomenal beatbox skills with his left-field sense of humour and incredible musicality.
In his live shows, as well as baffllingly good solo human-beatbox, he utilzes cutting-edge sound-mangling technology to create dance-inducing layered rhythms, breath-taking soundscapes, fully produced songs and tunes, all improvised and created entirely from the human voice. No pre-recorded material is used, and everything is created live and in real time in front of the audience, who he takes on a mind-bending journey from dumbstruck to dancing and back again.
BEARDYMAN PLAYS THE PURE FILTH BASS OASIS AT COACHELLA 2011 ON FRIDAY, APRIL 15 FROM 9PM-10PM
