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.
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.
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.
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.
