MEET THE HEADLINERS
LF SYSTEM’s ‘Afraid To Feel’ is quickly becoming the sound of the summer. After spending three weeks in the UK Top 5, the track has now spent four weeks at #1 making it the first UK dance chart-topper since Joel Corry’s ‘Head & Heart’ in 2020. It has already exceeded 30 million streams and has been certified Silver, while Gold status is well within reach. The success of LF SYSTEM has played a significant part in the current resurgence of the Scottish music scene. ‘Afraid To Feel’ reached #1 on the same day that Paolo Nutini topped the album charts with ‘Last Night in The Bittersweet’ – a moment that Lewis Capaldi celebrated during his headline show at Glasgow’s TRNSMT. LF SYSTEM recently performed at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, played their first Boiler Room set at FLY Open Air and now have a big summer of shows ahead of them. Highlights include their first ever London headline show at Night Tales, an Amnesia show presented by Danny Howard, and a huge night at special guests at Gorgon City presents Realm in Liverpool.
Despite being a Kerry native, it’s fair to say that Shee made a name for himself while attending college in Limerick when he founded the Touch of Techno collective alongside Charlie Moloney. After quickly realising that his sound lay much further across the house than techno spectrum, their collective’s name is indeed a bit misleading however through bookings such as Baltra and Folamour the pair slowly changed their sound, with Shee excelling through his production’s online popularity over time. Headline shows have come all across the country as he quietly won the respect of fellow producers and punters as his output continued to increase. The scope of Shee’s popularity soon became apparent when promoters across Europe started pencilling him in for dates across France, Belgium and more, alongside fellow Soundcloud stars such as Niles Cooper, all while his name and sound became a staple of YouTube channels such as Houseum. ‘Am I Just Living’ is his latest hit taken from his Champagne and Guinness EP and yet again proves exactly why his name has been a staple on festival lineups such as Life, Higher Vision and Mass over the past few years.
