Hip hop acts with contrast to Roskilde

Hocus Pocus, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and Sensational & Spectre add extra colouring to the music programme. Three strong acts with lots of flavour, power and hot temperatures have joined the music programme in the final phase. Hip hop, funk, soul and jazz twine in and out of each other like lianas with the following artists.

HOCUS POCUS (FR) is set with the biggest font sizes at French music festivals. Outside of France it is still only a hard core who knows of their organic electro-acoustic mix of hip hop, funk, soul and jazz. The strong-in-numbers ensemble charms the audience with equal parts elegance, humour and exuberant musicality.

HYPNOTIC BRASS ENSEMBLE (US) aspires to revive the brass-oriented jazz genre. They go at it with guerrilla-style fighting spirit by playing their hip hop-infected jazz brass in subways and on street corners. In the concert halls they have exchanged notes with figures such as Tony Allen, Maxwell and, not least, Gorillaz.

SENSATIONAL & SPECTRE (US) are two of hip hop's more intricate minds. Sensational is widely talked about and respected in the hash-hazy underground circles as one of New York hip hop's most original, babbling and darkly prophetic voices, and Spectre’s productions are equally recognised in the underground where he is also known as ’The Ill Saint’. With this double billing you can prepare yourself for a trip into a tangled jungle of bass-heavy beats, narcotic wavelengths and twisted rhymes.

Band schedule ready in mid-June
Large parts of this year's music programme are falling into place, but Roskilde Festival is still adjusting in an attempt to avoid genre clashes and the like. The final band schedule is expected to be online in mid-June.
