| knack for mixing exhilarating guitar riffs with stylish stabs of electronica. Tribal Gathering will see him create an impressive sound that crosses many musical genres, with tracks such as ‘Valley of the Dolls’ and ‘Sun Worshipper’. Given that he has worked with many big names already – remixing Elton John and touring with the Scissor Sisters - there will undoubtedly be a huge buzz on the day for his performance. |
Joining Mylo on the day will be arguably Canada’s finest DJ export Tiga, who will be taking time out from remixing singles for Scissor Sisters, Peaches and Soulwax to deliver a rousing DJ set of multi-faceted electronica and electro-sleaze. Possibly most famous for his remix of Nelly’s ‘Hot in Herre’ which eventually got licensed by Skint, his contributions on the uber-cool ‘Nag Nag Nag’ releases and Richard X’s debut album have given him an unrivalled reputation and his set will certainly be one of the highlights at Tribal Gathering.
Also appearing on the bill are garage renegades Stanton Warriors. The duo will be showing off their hyperactive mixing and energetic nu-breaks to the Tribal Gatherers.
Mylo., Tiga and Stanton Warriors will be joining an already exceptional line-up of DJs and live acts already announced. These are:
Groove Armada, Audio Bully’s, Frankie Knuckles, Danny Rampling, Mike Pickering, El Presidente, Infadels, Krysko, Layo and Bushwacka, Zero 7, Francois K, Plump DJs, Krafty Kuts, Victor Calderone, X-Press 2, Chicken Lips, Joey Negro, Norman Jay, Unabombers, Bugz in the Attic, DJ Yoda, Dave Beer and Bez, 20:20 Soundsystem.
