Underhill Festival 2011

Posted on the 16 June 2011 by Pelski
Underhill Festival 2011
A new up-and-coming festival located slap-bang in between Bristol and Bournemouth is Underhill – two days and nights of the finest electronic and Balkan talent appearing from 29th July to 31st July, Ridgewood Park, East Knoyle, in Wiltshire.
Nestled in a natural amphitheater surrounded by dense woodland, Underhill offers an intimate crowd of 2500 people a diverse offering of music and art with local food and drink. Catch the brass bands, wobbly bellies and Rakia shots before burying yourself under one of their circus-style big-top blackout dance tents.
Underhill also happens to boast one of the best underground lineups of any of the more intimate festivals.
The man who needs no introduction (and yet I’m going to give him one anyway…that’s what we do here). To call the Turkish DJ a bit of deity amongst his followers is somewhat of an understatement. He ran the legendary London club Trash for years before its demise. His sets are renowned, informed by an impeccable and often obscure taste, they’re nothing short of epic.
The high-brow purveyor of all things deep and bassy, Martyn will be playing a very special - never seen before - new live set. Since his seminal album (a 2009 standout), Martyn has been further blurring the boundaries between dubstep and techno, brazenly refusing pidgeon-holing – he’s just as likely to be seen sharing a bill with Omar S or Marcel Dettmann as he is Skream or Kode9.
Having graced the Pelski decks, we’re big fans of the RTK boys here at YCCMP. AS well as an array of colourful house productions under their belts, RTK are also famed for their lively DJ sets, championed by Jesse Rose as the ‘best house DJs of the year’.
Julio Bashmore’s fame has been a steady ascent. It’s a truism to say that producers as prolific as Julio Bashmore tend to sacrifice quantity for quality. Not the case with Julio. The man has banged out a huge array of original productions and remixes in the past two year – and they’re all essential. Most recently Julio’s been turning heads with the huge 'Batak Groove' and 'Everyone Needs A Theme Tune' releases. Light and airy house music with a bounce that’s utterly distinctive..
One of the few electro producers we still love here at Pelski, his productions are clean, neat and sublimely produced dancefloor weapons.
ZDS’ booty-shaking brand of house music, is big, stripped-back and heavy on the congas. If they don’t get you dancing no one will.
Oliver $ has been making cheeky house music for a while now. We all knew him first as producing jumpy fidget and in the last year or so has progressed onto fun, bumpy house. More recently he’s won over a lot of head with the slow, nostalgic house groover ‘Doin’ Ya Thing’.
The acclaimed producer who’s recently joined the modish Hot Creations crew – notable for his contribution to Hot Waves Vol 1, ‘Suck It’.
An inventive and daring producer, Durr resident Stopmakingme crafts intruging and inventive music. Just as likely to be seen playing disco and electro as he is house and techno.
