The eyes of the world have turned to the UK in recent years and have found some of the most exciting, genre-defying young artists to emerge from electronic music. But while London’s scene can be fractious and hard to pin down, there seems to be something in the air in Bristol that unites its participants. Whether they’re creating dubstep, house, techno or something else entirely, the cross-pollination in Bristol is unique.
Underhill’s lineup illustrates this unique cross-pollination. Many of the faces featured in this video were hunted down before a lineup wish list was drafted. The festival’s decision to use the established promoters of Bristol as a platform to obtain an eclectic lineup are the same crews responsible for the city’s flourishing in recent years, leaving Bristol as a small metropolis – one of the most influential electronic music outposts in the world today.
