Enter Shikari present Shikari Sound System
At this year's Reading Festival, SHIKARI SOUND SYSTEM will make its world debut headlining the Rock Stage on Sunday 25th August.
Shikari Sound System is the electronic alter-ego of the British band Enter Shikari, famous for blurring the lines between musical genres across three (thus far) UK chart top 5 albums since they hit the wider public consciousness in 2006. Having DJed and produced in various side projects over the years they finally decided to fully elope with live dance music, and so was born the Shikari Sound System.
For further explanation, let's hear it from the horse's mouth ; "Expect re-worked Enter Shikari tracks along with classic remixes and new surprises. Expect eerie live electronics and tent-peg-dislodging baselines. Expect a tour through many dance tempos and electronic genres that have been a constant inspiration to our band's sound.
Combining both live instruments and percussion with dub-plate wizardry, this is one for the skankers, the steppers, the movers and the shakers."
Enter Shikari have a deep history with the Reading Festival - attending as teenagers, and having played the festival five times in the past seven years - and so embraced the opportunity to return once again, albeit in 'disguise'. The band's latest single, a 1min16sec blast of a track, has this week been added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist.
