Together & Disciples will present The Following on New Year’s Eve, Saturday 31 December 2016, with the line up for the event at Electric Brixton including Disciples, Camelphat, DJ S.K.T., KDA, plus very special guests Shadow Child B2B Friend Within. Following a big year for the breakthrough trio, Disciples have chosen to celebrate the New Year with the launch of a new collaborative project with Together called The Following. The past year has apparently witnessed several chart-topping releases, festival performances at Glastonbury, South West Four, Reading & Leeds, Exit and Made In America, plus they became the first artists to receive Pete Tong’s ‘Essential New Tune’, Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World Right Now’, and Danny Howards ‘Future Anthem’, within the same 24 hours. Their underground presence has also grown considerably over the summer thanks to a multi-date residency for Together at Amnesia Ibiza.
Shadow Child has apparently been at the forefront of house music both in Britain and internationally for over a decade. The past two years have been his busiest years to date: in addition to the collaborations with T Williams, Huxley, Ben Pearce, S.P.Y, Ashworth, and more on his ‘Connected’ album, he’s also dropped remixes for The Prodigy, The xx and Hot Natured, headed out on US, UK and European tours, and hosted his regular Rinse FM show. He runs Food Music and had releases from A1 Bassline, Boxia and NT89. He plays Together NYE back to back with Disclosure collaborator Friend Within, who has made strides since he burst onto the scene in 2013 with releases on Dirtybird and PETS and subsequent outings on Hypercolour, Disclosure’s Method Music, and Red Bull Music.
Supporting Disciples will be CamelPhat, aka Mike Di Scala and Dave Whelan, who have garnered support across the board for their house productions since launching their alliance in 2008. With tracks on Spinnin Deep, Suara, Axtone and Jeudi Records, the duo’s old school sampling house track ‘Make ‘Em Dance’, was apparently one of the big Ibiza tracks of 2016. Following his 2015 hit ‘Take Me Away’, DJ S.K.T has been busy with his weekly residency on Kiss FM, which is supported by Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Mistajam, DJ Target, MK, Roger Sanchez, Amine Edge & Dance and Idris Elba.
His latest single ‘All I Wanna Do’ (featuring London-based singer Taet), has been doing well in the UK garage scene. Outside of the studio, he appeared at Together (Ibiza), We Are FSTVL, Glastonbury, SW4, Reading Festival, Creamfields, Wireless, T In the Park and Exit Festival in 2016.
Also appearing will be KDA aka Kris Di Angelis, who scored with his debut single ‘Turn The Music Louder (Rumble)’ featuring Tinie Tempah and Katy B, topping the UK singles chart in 2015. KDA’s follow-up release, ‘Just Say’ feat. Tinashe, is currently a big crossover house track.
