On the bill at Mar­lay Park

EX­AM­PLE A Lon­don rap­per res­i­dent at the sharp end of the pop charts, Ex­am­ple has had hits such as Changed the Way You Kiss Me, Nat­u­ral Dis­as­ter and Stay Awake, as well as choice col­lab­o­ra­tions with Calvin Har­ris, Pro­fes­sor Green and AN21. Let’s just hope David Guetta doesn’t get around to read­ing last year’s Guardian in­ter­view where Ex­am­ple gen­tly dissed him.

BENNY BENNASSI

The Ital­ian DJ and pro­ducer’s Elec­tro­man al­bum from last year was brim­full of tech-tro hits and col­lab­o­ra­tions with Chris Brown (yeah, we know), Kelis and Black-Eyed Peas.

Also had a hand in pro­duc­ing Madonna’s MDNA al­bum, but please don’t hold that against him: work is work.

RIZ­ZLE KICKS

From Brighton via a spell at the Brit School, Harley Alexan­der-Sule and Jor­dan Stephens will win you over with their bright, breezy, ex­u­ber­ant hip-hop/pop jams. Check last year’s fine Stereo Typ­i­cal al­bum for ex­am­ples of their lik­able sound.

WOLF­GANG GART­NER

Amer­i­can elec­tro­house DJ and pro­ducer Joey Young­man has had hits aplenty, as his Week­end In

Amer­ica al­bum from last year shows. Mean­while, col­lab­o­ra­tions with Skrillex and Dead­mau5 plus ap­pear­ances at Coachella and Elec­tric Daisy Carnival have upped his ap­peal (and book­ing fee).

TOMMY TRASH This Aus­tralian DJ and pro­ducer is based in Los Angeles, from where he has re­leased tracks for the Dim Mak, Mau5trap, Sub­lim­i­nal and Tool­room la­bels.
