Glitch Festival 2019: 5 Mixes To Get You Rave-Ready

Glitch Festival 2019: 5 Mixes To Get You Rave-Ready

Glitch Festival 2019

If jetting off to a Mediterranean island to party to some of the best artists in house and techno is your kind of thing, then you need to know about Glitch Festival. Or maybe you already do.

Whichever camp you're in, the festival returns this August to its self-proclaimed House and Techno Fortress in Malta, alongside Ben Klock, Carl Cox, Bicep and Helena Hauff.

It may still be a few months away, but we decided to take a deeper look at its lineup and pick out five mixes from artists on this year's billing, because to be honest, we wanted an excuse to get these on the speakers. 


Ben Klock

One of techno's main men for years, the Berghain resident continues to stay as relevant as ever. Nowhere is that more evident than in his 2015 Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. Four years later it still feels as current as ever. 


Helena Hauff

Helena Hauff has stormed to the forefront of techno over the last year or so, taking the genre by the scruff of the neck with her ferocious sets of thrilling electro, pulsating acid and thumping techno.


Motor City Drum Ensemble

One of the kings of the groove, wherever MCDE plays, he brings the party. His sets span disco, soul, house and techno, but it's his constant eye on the dancefloor that has made him such a popular figure amongst dance fans.


Bicep

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, it's been pretty hard to ignore Bicep. You've no doubt seen the logo. The bloggers turned house music icons now produce some of the genre's most infectious music, with their debut self-titled album testament to how far the duo have come.

Their DJ sets are equally as infectious, crafted off the back of years of crate-digging in record shops and a love for bringing unearthed gems to new audiences. 


Peggy Gou

Peggy Gou is quite frankly everywhere right now. Having fought off misogyny in her own family, and a keen purveyor of fashion and style, it's little wonder her sets know no bounds.

Drawing from a diverse mix of house, techno, disco and acid, they're a true reflection of her as a person, and as a result, have made her one of our favourite selectors.


Glitch Festival will take place on 14-16 August 2019. Find out more on our guide, and book your trip to this summer's festival here.
