Groove Armada (DJ Set), Pete Tong and Danny Howard

De Montfort Hall are opening up their gardens for a series of large-scale outdoor events this August #gigsinthegardens...

Friday 23 August: Groove Armada (DJ Set), Pete Tong, Danny Howard

Groove Armada
Groove Armada have been one of the best loved and biggest selling dance acts for more than two decades.

Andy Cato and Tom Findlay began putting 12 inches together for London clubbers in the mid-90s before striking gold with downbeat anthem At The River.

Seven albums later, the duo continue to push their mellifluous beats and blazing live shows for the enchantment of dance fans the world over.  

Pete Tong
Few dance DJs can claim the influence that Pete Tong has commanded for the past 20 years.

As the scene’s global ambassador, Pete Tong’s Essential Mix continues to act as taste setter while the DJ, now resident in the US, continues to push boundaries – in the clubs and on the radio - for all denominations of electronic dance music.

Danny Howard
Dance music broadcaster, DJ and producer Danny Howard gets a million listeners tuning in to his Saturday afternoon Dance Anthems slot on Radio 1.

His work as a music producer has seen him garner a global audience and was helped in no small way when dance music legend Erick Prydz asked Danny to remix Break Down The Doors.

These days Danny is capitalising on the re-emergent electronic dance scene with summer dates across the UK and Europe.

Years & Years, Jax Jones and Nina Nesbitt

Synth-pop outfit Years & Years’ sound has been described as electropop mixing R&B and 90s house sounds. Their biggest single King from their debut record reached number one in the UK singles and made top 10 charts around the world.

With their second album PaloSanto, lead singer Olly Alexander’s creativeambition has found its pure physical pulse. Years and Years have crafted theirown special landmarks that feel intuitively connected to great British popclassicism while standing bolt upright on a world stage next to Drake, TheWeeknd and Rihanna.

The confidence that propels the full-blooded fantasia of Palo Santo connects to where we are as a country, as a world, at a stark moral cross roads, between left and right, old and young, hypocrisy and truth, rightand wrong. It is about pop music taking the reigns, steering us out of theterrestrial universe and rethinking everything from the outside. It’s about outlier pop as futurism, once more, about offering solutions when the world is failing you.

Ultimately, it is driven by a deeply personal and only occasionally otherworldly life force. “Now I’m not afraid of what people think of me,” says Olly Alexander. “That’s a new feeling for me.”

Jax Jones
brings a compellingly idiosyncratic approach to pop music, underpinned by a belief that pop — and house, and every other sort of music — is at its best when the rules are bent slightly out of shape. Peppered with London slang and pop culture references that didn’t always make sense to other writers who just wanted their songs to hit as many demographics as possible, Jax’ unique songs resonate with his thousands of fans.

“I try to make everything super real,” Jax says. “When youmake it colloquial and conversational it doesn’t sound like traditional writing.” And that, he says, is where the magic comes from. “I used to rein myself in,” he acknowledges. “When I was starting out in the music industry I’d be ashamed of how I spoke —  this Chinese Turkish boy from south east London who could solve the mysteries of quantum mechanics, but nobody would listen because of how he spoke. It felt like a real boys’ club for privately-educated people talking about Chelsea.” And now? “Now it feels like the music industry’s gone rogue,” he grins. “One of my favouritethings about success is that I can finally act like the person I truly am.”

Nina Nesbitt
Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has been taking the world by storm. It's been non-stop for Nina since signing her new deal with Cooking Vinyl, a tour of the US with Jake Bugg, sold-out UK and US headline tours, winning the Evolution Award at the SSE Scottish Music Awards, covers of tmrw magazine and Rollacoaster, BBC Breakfast, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. To top it off, she was asked to collaborate with emerging female artists, Sasha Sloan and Charlotte Lawrence on a new track ‘Psychopath’ for the launch of Spotify ‘Louder Together’ – Nina’s reach globally has also been illustrated by the reports of both Spotify and Apple promoting Nina’s single in New York’s Times Square on huge billboards.
