The Best of Outlook Festival's 2018 Mix Series

Outlook Festival 2019

The time is nearly upon us once again for the unrivalled annual celebration of soundsystem culture and bass music's finest offerings. As summer comes to a close, Outlook Festival plays host to the biggest and best from the worlds of garage, grime, dubstep, drum & bass, jungle and more.

And each year, in the weeks and months running up to the event, the festival welcomes names from the lineup to record bespoke mixes in honour of their forthcoming appearance in Pula, Croatia.

This year the pickings were richer than ever, so we've selected a handful of our favourites to get everyone in the mood for another unforgettable few days in the sun.


Sir Hiss


The man behind one of the underground's most hyped tracks over the last year (the first 500 copies of 'Danny Uzi Vert' sold out in under half an hour). The Bristol newcomer packs his set full of variant styles, with plenty of refixes and classic samples thrown into the mix.


Sicaria Sound


One of the most exciting new names in dubstep at the moment, in a relatively short space of time the South London duo have made their way onto lineups across the city and beyond (Fabric, Deep Medi, Croydub, Keep Hush and a set at Lovebox Festival) as well as onto Radio 1, Rinse FM and more.


DJ Lag


Known to some as the 'King of Gqom', DJ Lag is a leading light in the South Africa born genre which marries house music with heavy percussion sounds and heightened bass.


El-B


There's a strong case to be argued that El-B is the man that created dubstep. By bringing a darker edge to his garage productions, he inspired a generation of new producers to explore even deeper and darker sounds.



The Heatwave


With their quick-fire mixing and feel-good dancehall selection, The Heatwave are here to remind you that bashment is for life, not just for carnival.


Barely Legal


Few things sum up Barely Legal as succinctly as a tweet she sent the other day showing her glee at having mixed Nina Kraviz into Mala at her Reading Festival set.


Zero T


In a celebration of soundsystem culture and its enduring legacy, it would be churlish not to include a plentiful supply of drum & bass, and fortunately Outlook do exactly that. Dublin native Zero T is joined by veteran DnB MC Visionobi for this one.


Compa


A lot of expectation was placed on the shoulders of Compa from a very young age, as the person tipped to 'save dubstep'. Now an established figure in the scene, he is undeniably one of the most respected names in the newer generation of producers and DJs.
