Goldie, MoStack, AJ Tracey and MS Banks are set to perform at Red Bull Music Odyssey on boats on the River Thames in London on June.
The 52-year-old drum and bass legend – who was awarded an MBE for his services to music in 2016 – will perform whilst sailing through the British capital, passing some of the most iconic landmarks – including a Tower Bridge opening display – before docking in Greenwich, on The Roller vessel on June 30.
There will be a total of six boats on the water at the same time and all performances will be broadcast live on Red Bull Radio.
Chal Ravens will be hosting a curated live broadcast featuring highlights from across the 50 plus artists involved in the unique event.
It has at fairly regular intervals over the last fifteen years or so attempted to float the idea of a CMU boat party. We’ve never done it, and now just sending one boat out on the water with a few DJs on it seems pretty boring. Because Red Bull has spoiled boat parties for everyone by putting together an event featuring six boats, each one captained by some of the UK’s finest underground electronic artists.
The Red Bull Music Odyssey will set sail down the Thames on 30 Jun, starting from Tower Bridge near the fizzy drink brand’s own Red Bull Studios. The boats will be captained – and more importantly curated – by Denis Sulta, Steel Banglez, Julie Adenuga, Henry Wu & Moses Boyd, Kyrist and Jubilee.
Acts joining them to splash out some tunes will include Goldie, Larry Heard, Jocelyn Brown, Mostack, Ms Banks, DJ Semtex, AJ Tracey, Slimzee, Flohio, Peven Everett, Bugz In the Attic and more.
Tickets go on sale this Friday for £25. For an extra tenner you can get into an afterparty on dry land.
Also performing across the six boats are AJ Tracey, MS Banks, MoStack and reggae star Kranium.
Each boat will be dedicated to a different genre of dance music from drum and bass to dancehall and have its own headline act, aptly named “the captain”.
The Forever Dancer will be headed up by Glasgow EDM star Denis Sulta, Goldie’s boat will be headlined by drum and bass producer-and-DJ Kyrist, whilst British radio presenter Julie Adenuga is running The Transmission with AJ Tracey.
Kamaal Williams and Moses Boyd will host the jazz invasion boat, The Boogie and US raver Jubilee is part of party.
