Artists


At Pangaea Festival we try and cater for all tastes, find out more about the lineup for Disco Apocalypse below.

  • Sister

    Sister Sledge

    One of the world's most legendary and successful female groups, their anthems have soared past the platinum mark and to the top of the charts. Sister Sledge performances have brought spirit to fans on all continents and earned awards, including Grammy's!

    Erol

    Erol Alkan

    Erol began in the 90s as an indie DJ/promoter pushing indie-dance sounds before his transition to electronic. With an impressive back catalogue of remixes, big hits with Boys Noize and a devoted following, "electro" really doesn't cover it…

    Simian

    Simian Mobile Disco

    For their new album, SMD started from the ground up and created an entirely new electronic system, recorded fully live. Their 2006 debut similarly tore apart UK music and turned a generation of indie kids to dance, we cannot wait for this closing set.

  • Boddika

    Boddika

    With a habit of reinventing himself and pushing boundaries, as half of Instra:Mental he built a diverse and unique sound, crossing styles within D&B / electronica. Boddika is his raw, driving persona that instantly garnered support from the underground.

    Digital

    Digital Mystikz

    Mala & Coki are dubstep's original pioneers out of Norwood and co-run DMZ - influential label and club night recently 10 years on the run. Perhaps the scene's most famous and influential producers, their hits have grown to be anthems, hear "Anti-War Dub".

    Floating

    Floating Points

    On the scene since his debut release on his own Eglo Records label and since has steadily built a catalogue of his & others' precision-engineered music. His production is deep, soulful & he is renowned as one of the UK's finest selectors & crate-diggers.

  • Late

    Late Nite Tuff Guy

    Late Nite Tuff Guy is a new breed of disco vigilante, prowling the neon streets on a mission to reclaim the clubs & peddle the most credible of disco edits. LNTG puts the acrimony in acronym, the oh in disco, the amp in camp and the dang in dangerous.

    Leon

    Leon Vynehall

    Leon Vynehall's off-kilter sounds are carefully crafted things, layered with musicality whilst never straying too far from a infectious groove. Something of a media recluse, all we really know about him we know from his music - so far it's fascinating.

    Levon

    Levon Vincent

    Describing himself as "a scientist working in the field of ass-shakery", Levon has become the face of anti-corporate techno - raw, punk & DIY - it flows through his 2015 debut album. He is New York's finest export, this performance is not to be missed.

  • Lone

    Lone

    Over 6 years, he's explored Hip Hop, House, Classic Rave and Detroit Techno whilst keeping a distinctive sound. Upbeat vibes, warm synths, hands-in-the-air moments, unbridled energy, glowing enthusiasm and melodies that show a musician doing it so right!

    Mungos

    Mungos Hifi

    Glaswegian dub outfit Mungo's Hi Fi continue to make quality forward-thinking dub, reggae and dance-hall music, whilst retaining their roots in traditional soundsystem culture. Their sound system is legendary and tours across the UK and worldwide.

    Space

    Space Dimension Controller

    Beyond the barrier into deep space where no radar can detect him, Mr. 8040 creates music using ancient earth technologies alone in his Electropod. Mr. 8040 doesn't really have much to say about his beats, the only way to describe it is... GALACTIC FUNK.

  • Submotion

    Submotion Orchestra

    A seven piece band influenced by dubstep, soul, ambient electronica, jazz and dub with three acclaimed albums. Their recent album sees the band in an expansive mood, the interplay between their electronic and acoustic sounds growing ever more natural.

    The

    The Mouse Outfit

    Live eight-piece eclectic hip hop act from Manchester who produce a slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats. Influenced by a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk, reggae and hip hop breaks, lyrics from the finest MCs. Hip Hop at its very best.

    Levelz

    Levelz

    Described as "Wu-Tang meets the Happy Mondays", this collective of MCs, DJs and producers is making waves across the UK and quickly becoming Manchester's biggest exporter of "bad-ass shit". Their stage is going to be wild, don't miss their full live band!

  • Benny

    Benny Page

    Heavily inspired by the bass lines of Dub, Ragga, Jungle and Hip-Hop. He has played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of UK drum and bass. His name is synonymous with tight production, heavyweight dance-floor tracks and clinical mixing skills.

    Ghost

    Ghost Culture

    Hailing from Erol's Phantasy label (home to Daniel Avery) GC's album is full of electronic experimentation and exploration which he will perform live. Free to explore raw eclecticism, it has been described as "delightfully woozy" and "jerky electro pop".

    Throwing

    Throwing Snow

    Drawing influence from a vast array of genres, his production possesses consistent and comforting warmth, but glistens with a 'serene kind of steely coldness'. He recently released his debut album on Houndstooth; it's an office favourite, get it heard.

  • Riot

    Riot Jazz Brass Band

    A twisted mix of funk, soul, hip hop and wild jazz makes up this brass outfit from Manchester. They navigate a minefield of original peace-lovin’ aggro jazz, hip-hop samples, funked-up favourites and re-interpreted dubstep, D&B and dance-floor bangers

    Extra

    Extra Love

    A ten-piece band from Manchester who throw a variety of spices into the Reggae/Dub pot; creating their own distinctive and danceable flavour. With big vibes, grooves to make you move your waist line and deep bass that rolls all the way down your spine.

    Chimpo

    Chimpo

    Chimpo is a fine example of how Manchester has managed to take a collision of influences and create its own sound and swagger. A connoisseur of garage, dancehall, rap, D&B and grime, his sets and beats traverse styles and tempos, but always join the dots.

  • Chunky

    Chunky

    Chunky's four track debut EP featured a take on underground dance music that echoed the individuality of his mic skills. Drawing influences from all corners of the shop, Chunky’s DJ sets deliver seriously weighty selections delivered with pure exuberance.

    Jenna and the Gs
