Have you tried Altern8 (Jungle Set)?

image.png.8f9ea20deb02c0db95bead096e13f7d4.png

Altern8 are playing a none jungle set in the Spaceport so I will be defiantly be at that but I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of others who have a similar style. Mark XTC is another I know of.

Yep I got you @clitbang - you’re in luck, the sound Mark helped forge has probably not been this popular for decades.

My biggest tip for a modern update on  Mark’s sound would be Eris Drew. She’s closing The Temple on Sunday and is going to whip up a frenzy.

Zenker Brothers on IICON and will go pretty big on the breakbeats, hoovers and chunky kicks - a modern take on the less poppy side of Mark, not as techno-y as some others in the field, and the visual spectacle should carry it too.

Sports Banger’s all day rave spinoff at the Stonebridge bar by The Park will be pure carnage, probably more E-Vapor8 and Charly silliness (plus hardcore) than the other two I’ve mentioned too. Off Me Nut’s takeover will push that even further and harder. 

There’s dozens of lifers from the 90s on the bill all around the Unfairground and Glade but I can’t sure how many might be legitimately decent in this day and age tbh. Depends what side of Altern8 you’re after I suppose?

Only been in the Downlow a couple of times, and never on Fri/Sat/Sun. but I'd say that you would be fine to get in with those plans.

Park and JPT will have finished by then, so there will be a fair few already free and heading for the SEC, plus of course the hardcore who are down there already, but The Cure, CATQ and Janelle should give you a good enough head start. She'll be popular mind, and early enough for the tired to try for the Downlow for one last hurrah.

You can always join me at Genosys for Josh Wink The Master ;)

Brilliant thanks a lot for that Ben, hopefully with a bit of efficiency & luck we should be okay ! 

Josh Wink & Max Cooper are certainly on the clashfinder as strong back up options ? 

if we do manage to get in the Downlow the next challenge is pulling ourselves out to catch the last hour of Karenn ...

will have to try and leave enough in the tank for this which isn't going to be easy, especially with the big hitters across the site on Thursday night

Whilst I understand your anxiety about the batteries being low, if you like proper, intelligent techno, in this case much of it modular and created mostly live, do try to see Karenn. They are unreal!

Mark XTC was amazing last time, it was just a shame he was on after Altern8 in the space port I think, it was rammed for Altern8 when he finished Mark XTC came on proper old school, but everyone left. it was just about 12 of us a a ten year old boy raving at the front

 

great set like

I think I missed this info but what kind of sets is Carl Cox playing? Determined to catch him at least once this year.

And do we think it'll be possible to get anywhere near the Glade when he's playing on Saturday afternoon? I want to stop by after either Mattiel or Ezra Collective (depending on which I'm at).

Be a doddle Saturday afternoon I’d say, being on for that long space will open up. I plan on being there for the majority of it myself. Don’t think I’ll  bother seeing him at Arcadia or anyone else for that matter, it’s all a bit big and impersonal to me.

I think Carl is playing a blues, funk and soul set in the Glade (unless I have completely got that wrong, but it makes sense for the time slot). 

Yes, Coxy is funk, soul and house on Glade and presumably pretty much a techno set (it had better be!) on Pangea on Friday night with Jamie Jones. Now, what we haven’t established is if his announcing ‘two other techno sets’ is true. At the moment the lineup is conspicuous in listing only the two sets I mentioned. So, either that is it, or there’s a sneaky secret techno set somewhere over the weekend...

Many thanks all! That's what I wanted to hear. 

I should hopefully be able to catch quite a bit at the Glade then; grab a drink at the lounge then have a mid afternoon dance. Bliss. And whilst I want to do the Pangea set I don't think techno's up a lot of my mate's alley. 

Ben, after I posted I had a vague memory of him saying he was playing three sets. I assume it's a late night TBA somewhere...

I know this chat is full on Glasto mode right now (as should be)

I've got Junction2 tomorrow and it looks like I might be toying with the idea of bringing wellies... I'm hoping that if the weather gods make my Junction 2 a wet one, they'll be kinder to me at Glasto.

I'm taking one for the team! ??

Any chances Bicep would drop Rain during a massive downpour? ?️?️ would be very fitting. 

Anybody else going tomorrow? Think a few of you said you might be goin Saturday?

I am going to J2 tomorrow. Nice that they’ve separated out the tech housey stuff onto a separate day this year which should hopefully improve crowd and busyness and means that Friday artists are all killer! With the forecasting looking so bad plus it being a schoolday, I’m hoping it might scare a few people away making it a bit less packed and more space on the junction stage which is usually rammed. I’m temping fate here but I think you’ll be alright without wellies - ground will be pretty dry given lack of rain this week and don’t see there being enough people there to cut up the grass in the short time it is open. Lineup for me looking like Peach > Jobse > Mr G > Koze > MCDE > Ricky V

Have a brilliant time, @Acid Loafers - and any other E/D threaders heading to Junction 2.

And thanks in advance for letting the weather gods get all that wetness out of their system in order that Glastonbury will be glorious!

was dragged to Peach at Primavera a few days ago. didn't like a Boiler Room I saw from her at all, far too pop and disco for my liking, but the set at Primavera was brilliant, straight forward head-down techno. not as industrial or banging as I'd usually like, but pretty enjoyable nonetheless.  probably helped being on between Aisha Devi and Martyn, not really the time for 80s disco-pop :lol:

 

playing a few sets at G over the weekend and a few b2bs, but I'd say Wow on Sunday at 6pm would be one that will be more techno-oriented for those inclined. nice run after that too: Inner City live, Midland b2b Bruce, Leon Vynehall, Lone b2b Kettama, S_as.

Yeh I think she is great, saw her warm up for Hopkins ages ago at Phonox and hadn't heard her before and she really impressed. Keen to see her at glasto and that Sunday slot has potential but got a feeling it will be empty - that first slot at Wow after the outdoor boat party thing finishes always seems to have noone in as people haven't realised it is open yet! Hope to be proven wrong though...

Asked this very same question yesterday - you might like:

At Blind Tiger stage from Saturday, 1am:

1am-2am: Jim Bitch (Old Skool Rave, 100% Vinyl Set) 

2am-4am: Uncle Dugs (Early Nineties Set) 

Nice one, has anyone seen either of them before?

Roughly figured out evening movements over the festival.

Thursday - WOW tent for Hammer and Mella Dee. If that's rammed its over to the Beat Hotel for Seinfeld and Avalon Emerson then to the Rabbit Hole to see Henge.

Friday- Hype b2b Randal in Sonic followed by Carl Cox b2b Jamie Jones at Pangea. Then its either stay for De Whitte or up to Downlow for Erik Morillo if thats a nonstarter Zenker and finish with Stenny.

Saturday- Chems, Bicep in the Gas Tower followed by Haai or Hessle and finishing in the Temple for Monika Kruse.

Sunday - Will completely depend on my state of mind but i'm usually pretty flexible by this point and will go for pretty much anything with a view to getting to bed by 3am ish. Andy C, Dusky, Karenn, Mr Fingers, the Planet V Takeover or the Eats Everything, Eris Drew, Troxler triple header in the Temple if i'm going for it. :)

I'll have a listen to Eris Drew nice one. I've got Zenker brothers on my list I like them.

Not really into hardcore so the sports bangers might be abit heavy for my liking. Splitmatt is abit much for me I had a listen the other day as he is b2b with Altern8 at gas tower. I really want to catch a set at gas tower as visually looked good in 2017 but when I stumbled upon it the scene abit heavy so left to go the downlow.

Working on clothes stall again this year so have to work alternate day/evening shifts - I've made up 2 plans and I'm struggling to decide between them.

Plan 1
Thursday: Late nite tuff guy (prince set) in Spike - Shanti b2b Moxie b2b Peach b2b Saoirse in Stonebridge - Batu in IICON - 
Randomer and Partok to finish up on Genosys

Friday: Bands in the day, quite excited to see Acid Mothers Temple - then Craig Richards b2b Ben UFO in Wow - Four Tet also in Wow - If Wow has a shit vibe (which it pretty much always does) or is too packed (which it always is) then I'll slink off to Arcadia for Charlotte

Saturday: If I'm in the mood to have a stomp I'll see Jon Rundell to start off but if not I'll see Janet Jackson - Midland at Beat Hotel - if that's too rammed head over to Stonebridge for the sports banger mega rave - then I'll either see Four tet at Arcadia or head down SE corner early for Bruce's set in IICON - then I'll alternate between IICON and Genosys until 4am - Monika Kruse at temple - if I can't get in to that or if the crowd is a bit iffy after Patrick Topping's set before go see Rowland the Bastard in unfairground to end the night

Sunday: Bands in the day - then if my legs have turned to jelly or the mud has made walking impossible I'll finish at Stonebridge - Pearson sound b2b call super - Danielle - Dj Storm - then head in to the wormhole for some old school jungle thingy to end

Sunday night if my legs are up for a trek SE - Josh Wink or Lee Gamble - Karenn - Felix Dickinson

Plan 2
Thursday: Avalon Emerson and Job Jobse in Beat Hotel - if that's too rammed try Wow for Paranoid london - if that's too rammed Mall Grab on the Gully

Friday: Midland and prosumer in the downlow (get there nice and early as midlands opening so should have no problems getting in) - Zenker Brothers and Stenny in IICON to finish

Saturday: Four tet morning set at Stonebridge - Coxys funk set the rest of the day - then at night just have a bimble night as I can't really head SE as I'll have work at 9am the next day

Sunday: Exactly the same as plan 1 except no bands in the day but I'll be able to see The Streets who I absolutely love before heading on the night out

I'm anticipating a lot of techno heads finishing in The Temple on Saturday night,  so you should be in good company, matey!

If there are a lot of dickheads, just find me and we'll be alright...

Have tried to find some Jimmy Bitch but no luck online, can anyone link me up?

I'm looking for old skool rave types to add to my list but the Uncle Dugs sets I can find online seem to be DnB and Jungle sets?
