SATURDAY
The legendary R&S Records will be taking over the After Dark on the Saturday night of Green Man this year… R&S was founded in 1984 and came to be the label that defined the sound of European rave and techno, it built up an enviable catalogue of classic releases like Energy Flash, Plastic Dreams, Stella and Dominator. It was also the European label of choice for the Detroit Techno originators Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Sauderson and they also released one of the all time classic electronic albums in Aphex Twin’s ‘Selected Ambient Works’.

These days, based out of London, they are still flying the flag for brand new, cutting edge electronic music and have built up an amazing roster of brilliant young artists such as James Blake, Lone, Pariah and Space Dimension Controller.

Their After Dark show sees them introducing Vondelpark, a four piece band who will provide a hazy, soulful blend of guitar pop and electronics, Lone who is currently riding high with his ‘Galaxy Garden’ album, and dj sets from James Blake (his 3rd year at the festival), Airhead and The Chain.

James Blake – London based English electronic music producer and singer-songwriter from London returns to DJ following a triumphant set on the mainstage in 2010.

Vondelpark – Dark yet beautiful, the dubstep flecked rhythms Vondelpark evoke any number of different emotions in glorious sensations.

Lone – Heavy Chicago house/techno and early 90s London rave sound aimed at destorying parties, whilst simutaneously staying true to his brilliantly beautiful nostaligic melodies.

Airhead – The London producer creates spacious, abstract compositions that are reminiscent of James Blake’s earlier work.

The Chain – London based duo who have released two critically acclaimed EPs.

SUNDAY
The Time & Space Machine – psychedelic live project from legendary London producer Richard Norris, the brains behind Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve.

Psychemagik – Join them in their cosmos and see the world through their eyes. Allow yourself to be drawn into their enchanted escape, the vista that will forever be lost in space.

Richard Norris  – Balearic beats and cosmic grooves to classic psychedelic gems, when it comes to being a man of many talents, there are few to equal Richard Norris

If that wasn’t enough we also have a 24-hour bar licence and dusk til dawn bonfire! Wonderful things happen in the Black Mountains as the sun goes down – yet another great reason to make Green Man 2012 your get-away destination of the summer!
