MJ COLE // SEROCEE // KRYSTAL KLEAR // NIGHTWAVE // TYPEWRITER
The unstoppable Red Bull Music Academy is teaming up with an icon of the UK’s garage scene, as they proudly announce a mini-tour with MJ Cole and friends across some of the UK’s best venues.
MJ Cole, one of the forefathers of the UKG sound and unapologetic lover of a bassline, will host five dates at the end of June, visiting Edinburgh, Dundee, Liverpool, Swindon and London. MJ is known for his productions including the top ten hit “Crazy Love”, the albums “Sincere” and “Cut To The Chase” plus a Mercury nomination and MOBO Best Producer Award. With a slew of low-end, clacky dance floor tracks recently uploaded to Soundcloud under the header “2012”, MJ Cole’s studio efforts hint at some big releases this year. MJ Cole is no stranger to Red Bull Music Academy, having played at various Academy events including the stages at Sónar and Bestival, as well as London’s The Nest.
Joining MJ Cole is the London-by-way-of-Slovenia bass queen and 2011 Academy participant Nightwave, whose innovative, shape-shifting productions have been reaching critical acclaim since her time at the Academy in Madrid last Autumn.
She joins fellow Madrid alumnus Krystal Klear, who has been working hard and picking up fans ever since he arrived in a blaze of boogie in 2010, with support and love coming from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs and Hudson Mohawke, then being selected to attend Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, Krystal Klear’s light has been shining bright over the last year.
Completing the line-up is Serocee, who has carved a name that is synonymous with the musical forefront of club culture. Whether it is on the mic or behind the decks, his ability to navigate seamlessly within hip hop, dancehall, and UK bass movements has made him a mainstay talent within the worldwide festival and club circuits.
