The whole week we’ve been looking forward to this moment to announce four really stunning new names for this year’s Incubate. First of all we like to start that living legend Kenny Dixon Jr, better known as Moodymann, is coming to Incubate 2012. One of the creators of the Detroit techno/house-scene comes to Tilburg to let us hear why he is, after making music for 20 years, still relevant.
At the same night as Moodymann, Saturday September 15th, another big name will come to visit our festival; Nathan Fake. This English electronic musician just announced a new record: “Steam Days” is gonna be released again on the record label of James Holden at the end of August; Yes, exactly: just a few weeks before Incubate.
The last dance name of today is Ital. Daniel Martin-McCormick, who’s also part of earlier announced acts as Mi Ami and Sex Worker, is a typical cross-patch in the experimental house scene. His tracks are getting released by Planet Mu and Silk 100%, but the according to XLR8R one of the best new artists of 2011 is mostly known for his extraordinary live performances.
Incubate is a festival for everyone, so we’re also adding a non-eletronic name to this year’s line-up: Howlin’ Rain. This psychedelic rockband from San Fransico sounds like a modern-day answer to classic 70s rock acts and according to our dear ex-collegue Howlin’ Rain on of the best perfomances during this year’s SXSW.
We can also announce that the Early-Bird tickets are officially sold-out. Normal passepartout tickets are now for sale for €75-.
