At 11pm on Saturday 20th August, I shall be DJing at the Folk East festival in Suffolk. The night will be called The Young’uns In The Mix. As well as debuting this unique project at Folk East, we’ll be releasing it on The Young’uns Podcast at the end of August. Here’s a little bit of bumf about it, and I’ve also put together a teaser introduction to wet your appetite.
Prepare to enter a world where folk music and pop music collide. Where Michael Jackson flirts with British traditional folk music, Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar join forces with Daft Punk, The Watersons share the stage with Van-halen, the Prodigy embrace sea shanties, and the Unthanks go through a bit of a death metal faze.
David Eagle from The Young’uns takes to the decks to DJ, exclusively for Folk East, as the two disparate worlds of folk and pop join together in unholy musical matrimony. Come and hear folk music like you’ve never heard it before. Come and dance the night away in the company of The Young’uns, armed with disco lights, samplers and DJ decks, and joined by the amazing MC Squared. All shall be revealed!
