First wave of DJs announced for BPM | PRO 2017 line-up
Following the announcement of hip-hop icon DJ Jazzy Jeff as after-party headliner last month, BPM | PRO has made a number of additions to the line-up for its CHAUVET DJ Arena, including Jordan Suckley and Leftwing & Kody.
A series of electrifying performances, enhanced by stunning CHAUVET DJ lighting and a powerful Nexo soundsystem, will take place across both days of BPM | PRO.
Ranging from tech-house to hip-hop to hard-style to trance, the acts for 2017 have been carefully curated, showcasing emerging talent alongside established names for an electronic music experience like no other.
With more acts TBC soon, visitors can expect this year’s line-up to be bigger than ever… Check out the full day-by-day line-up (including competitions) or take a sneak peek at the latest acts below:
DJ JAZZY JEFF
The hip-hop icon and DMC champ will play a 90-minute set. Head to the CHAUVET DJ Arena after the show-floor closes and you’ll find this legend spinning everything from house to bassline (and hip-hop, of course). One of just a handful of UK appearances scheduled for 2017, this is one after party you don’t want to miss!
A star that seems to never stop rising, Jordan Suckley has gone from being one of the underground scene’s most promising newcomers to playing the world’s high-end clubs events and festivals. His trance tracks have been championed by the likes of Armin van Bururen and Aly & Filla, so you’re in for a real treat when he graces the stage at BPM | PRO.
LEFTWING & KODY
If you love bass-heavy tech house, Leftwing & Kody should top your must-see list. Since forming back in 2012, this London-based duo have been making waves in the world of house music, garnering support from Carl Cox, Pete Tong, James Zabiela and Adam Beyer.
Technical, diverse, and one of the hardest working DJs in the industry, Kutski has played just about every major electronic festival going – including Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Electric Daisy Carnival. At BPM | PRO, he’ll be spinning some of dance music’s harder styles – so don’t miss out!
Consistently cutting, scratching and blending new beats with classic riffs, Slipmatt is a “DJ’s DJ” who has continued to embrace new sounds while holding on to that classic rave-anthem tone that rocketed him to stardom in the 90s. BPM | PRO is your chance to catch this legend in action.
Founder of Manchester-based label Applique Music and resident DJ for Data Transmission, Lempo is fresh from remixing Snoop Dogg and General Levy earlier this year, as well as working with the voice of house music, Roland Clark. Catch him in the CHAUVET DJ Arena and in our LEARN Sessions.
If turntablism is your thing, then you’ll want to set aside some time to watch the DMC DJs battle it out on stage! The atmosphere is intense, the beats are funky, and the skills on display behind the decks are next level.
