Love Saves The Day 2019 - Five key DJ sets to watch out forPosted on: 20 May 2019
Love Saves The Day is almost upon us, and with it comes yet another lineup jam-packed with some of the most exciting electronic and underground artists from across the UK and beyond. This year's programme is better than ever and there are bound to be some big-name clashes, so to save you some time and disappointment we've put together a quick list of five unmissable DJ sets to watch out for at LSTD 2019.
Palms Trax // Saturday, Brouhaha
Often overlooked in the discussion of the world's top DJs, London-born producer Palms Trax has quietly carved out a reputation as one of the most accomplished selectors on the scene right now. Yearly main stage appearances at the world-renowned Dekmantel festival in Amsterdam, as well as several well-received Boiler Room sets and back-to-backs with the likes of Midland, Hunee and Antal, have earned him serious acclaim among fellow artists and electronic music aficionados, and any chance to catch him in action should be jumped at. His all-encompassing world music set at Dekmantel Selectors 2017 in Sao Paolo should give you a good taste of what to expect at Eastville Park this weekend.
Artwork // Saturday, Lost Gardens
Formerly of eclectic electronic three-piece Magnetic Man and now a world-renowned DJ in his own right, Artwork's upbeat sets have endeared him to crowds up and down the UK and beyond over the last few years. Having played at pretty much all of the biggest clubs in the UK, as well as holding residencies at the infamous Pikes Hotel in Ibiza and hosting his renowned Art's House parties at home, Artwork knows how to get the vibes going and has a real knack for squeezing the very best out of his track selections. Headlining the Lost Gardens on Saturday, he'll be appearing alongside close friends and fellow disco connoisseurs Horse Meat Disco and Gideon.
Dave Harvey b2b Christophe // Saturday, Brouhaha
On one hand an internationally-renowned DJ and head of Team Love on the other, the Bristol party scene has a lot to thank Dave Harvey for. Love Saves The Day, The Downs Festival, The Love Inn and Futureboogie are all Bristol institutions at this point, and Harvey and co. have outdone themselves yet again in bringing this year's LSTD programme together. His b2b sets with fellow Futureboogie head Christophe have become a staple at any and all Team Love events, so don't miss out on this one as they kickstart a huge Saturday on the Brouhaha stage with their usual selection of upbeat house, Balearic, disco and more.
Denis Sulta // Sunday, Centre Stage
Glaswegian powerhouse Denis Sulta has a penchant for producing melodic, floor-filling house tunes with a decidedly underground flavour, and his DJing capabilities have launched him into the worldwide electronic music spotlight in the last couple of years. Adopting a keen interest in dance music from a young age after landing his first job at infamous Glasgow record shop Rubadub, Sulta has grown into a genuine force and is now used to selling out shows and festivals across the globe. His recent Cercle takeover has recorded well over half a million streams to date, and his infamous Sulta Selects brand has seen him host unforgettable parties all across the UK and Ireland. He'll be back at Eastville Park for the second year running this weekend, and is certain to provide one of the standout sets of this year's festival.
Josey Rebelle // Sunday, Centre Stage
Rinse FM and NTS radio resident Josey Rebelle has been dominating established dancefloors across the world in recent years, appearing at world-renowned venues and festivals like Panorama Bar, Fabric, De School, Dimensions, Primavera Sound, Bestival and many more. Her guest mixes for BBC Radio 1, Resident Advisor, The Fader, FACT magazine and, of course, Boiler Room have earned scores of fans across the world, recognised for an uncanny ability to span genres and borrow from a huge range of sounds and styles to get parties going. Don't miss her showcase the full spectrum of her musical expertise on the LSTD Centre Stage this weekend.
