With just a couple of months to go until Dimensions brings Fort Punta Christo in Croatia to life, Dimensions Festival recently announced some last minute additions. Originally from New York, Nicolas Jaar spent a few years growing up in Chile before retuning to his birthplace as a teenager. At the age 14 Jaar began making electronic music having been inspired by native Chilean music and the minimal sounds of Ricardo Villalobos. His unique take on music saw his first album reach critical acclaim and go on tour with a full band. Now regarded by many as one of the best up and coming minds in electronic music, Nicolas Jaar joins the Dimensions line-up.
The 808 is a sound synonymous with house and techno, this producer from the west country has found a way to twist the 808 into something very new. Fusing elements from dubstep with the Chicago Juke scene, Addison Groove has become known for his high energy, percussion fuelled performances with rap inspired vocal loops. Joining the duke of Juke is a French DJ with leagues of experience. Jean Marie K made his name on FG DJ Radio, a station popular throughout the suburbs of Paris and is known best for its electronic music programming. New to the scene and already picked up by London based label Swamp 81, this duo have caught the attention of many and are certainly on the rise. Dusky have had a very recent rise to fame and with their booking schedule taking them to Ibiza this year. Another last minute addition is Serbian DJ, Marko Nastic, whose radio shows are broadcast across the globe and has played at some of Eastern Europe’s largest festivals.
