7 essential Crucast artists you need to see at Reading Festival

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 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’.


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.


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


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.
