Sharp electronic acts to play Roskilde Festival 2012

Martyn, Shlohmo and The Toddla T Sound are added to the lineup.

Today's announcement contains three highly promising shooting stars of electronic music who in no way see their respective nationalities as a musical limitation.

MARTYN (NL) mixes dubstep, techno, UK funky and drum'n'bass in a transatlantic genre fusion where Detroit, London, Chicago and Berlin are just some of the electronic metropolises popping out. Martyn was originally regarded as a promising name in bass-heavy dubstep. Today, the Dutch producer and DJ sounds more like a type that will not put up with a single musical label.

SHLOHMO (US) is a child of the same Los Angeles that has delivered former Roskilde artists such as Gonjasufi and The Gaslamp Killer. The young beat smith cuts into a personal niche with his delicate, electronic music. The music is based on several thresholds, including abstract hip hop, nature programme soundtracks in the vein of Boards of Canada and post-London dubstep.

THE TODDLA T SOUND (UK) goes all the way with a show featuring a sonic vortex of dancehall, house, garage and countless other dance genres from both Great Britain and the Caribbean. Sheffield's own Toddla T has DJ’ed longer than he has been able to obtain a driver's licence. Today he is a well-established British DJ act, for instance at the hot London club Fabric and on BBC Radio 1. With The Toddla T Sound, the prodigy enters the stage.
