7 ESSENTIAL CRUCAST ARTISTS YOU NEED TO SEE AT READING FESTIVAL

Published

on

The Crucast collective have been taking the scene by storm. They push a vital new strain of beats that include electro house, DnB, garage and more. If you’re not sure what to expect from their set at this year’s festival, we’re about to educate you. Be warned, if you’re listening to these tracks at work, you’re going to get the sudden urge to rave.

Skepsis

Skepsis BRINGS. THE. BASS. His gritty basslines and intricate rhythms have seen his rise to the top of the scene. Get a taste of what’s to come with ‘Hold It Down’.

Darksy

Check out this Darksy remix of ‘One Dance’ and make a disgusted look on your face when the beat drops – you know you’re going to want to.

Mr Virgo

Mr Virgo has been on the scene for a while, since the evolution began from 4×4. This remix is total filth and we’re loving it.

Bru-C

“Don’t try sesh with the crew if you’re an amateur.” Sorry, did someone watch us in the campsites last year? The vibes in this are unreal.

TS7

TS7 only produce bangers, and that’s a fact. Reading and Leeds is going to go OFF this year.

Lazcru

The trusted leader of the Crucast family, Lazcru has taken the iconic label from underground favourite to nationwide phenomenon and with a mix like this, are you even surprised?

Window Kid

Window Kid is the new big boy on the UK MC scene. If you need to get into his infectious style, start off with ‘BITS’ and you won’t be disappointed one little bit.

If you’re still not sure what to expect from Crucast’s set at this year’s Reading Festival, just know you’re going to have the time of your life listening to some seriously FILTHY drops. Make sure you catch them on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage on Saturday.

West Reading Window Wanderland 2020 | 29 Feb – 1 Mar 2020

Published

This will be the second Window Wanderland accross the whole of West Reading.

The idea is to cheer up otherwise dark and cold evenings with fun and light, in the form of decorated windows, and an opportunity for the community to come together. People can walk with neighbours and friends to follow the window trail and explore their neighbourhod in a new light.

Last year, over 40 houses decorated their windows and hundreds of school children decorated their school windows at Wilson Primary, Battle School and Oxford Road Community School. Over one thousand people downloaded the map to follow the magical trail with friends and neighbours.

2020 will be even bigger and brighter. If you would like to find out more, or get involved by decorating your windows at home, at work, at school, at a nursery, at a business or organisation please sign up here and encourage your neighbours to get involved. This works so well if a lots of people take part on a street and then get together to see eachother’s windows. See how one street had fun doing this last year here.

The organisers will again be holding free workshops where they’ll provide materials, tools and people can swap ideas, tips and skills.

West Reading Window Wanderland 2020 | 29 Feb – 1 Mar 2020 from 6pm to 9pm. Please register or sign in to make a window.
