This year’s Playground Festival brings together many of the godfathers/ innovators of house, techno and electro music alongside those making a significant rise on current underground scene to create a truly retrospective festival experience. Headliners LEFTFIELD, SQUAREPUSHER, GARY NUMAN, DIGITALISM, VITALIC and UNKLE’s JAMES LAVELLE, will be joined by a whole host of upcoming and respected talent as they all play under one roof at Brixton Academy on the 7th – 8th June.
The techno imprint Tortured was established in 1997 by Billy Nasty and went on to considerable success and critical acclaim with releases from the likes of The Advent, Adam Beyer, Marco Carola, Dave Angel, Space DJz, Hertz and Umek. It was without doubt one of the UK’s leading Techno labels of its time, an era that many people now refer to as the golden age of banging techno.
Now in 2013 the label rises again with the first release from RadioNasty with their “Breakin Bad EP”, which includes two killerrr remixes from Ben Sims.
