The Egg - Saturday 30th June 2012

The Egg

Headlining Saturday night, its the mighty egg...

Like New Order floating on a cloud’- The Observer.

The Egg play live house, rocktronic, funk and ambient influenced dance music, using electronic and live instruments, video triggering, samples and live and vocoded vocals. Their music is inspired by artists such as Pink Floyd, Groove Armada, The Beloved, New Order, Underworld, and the shoegazing/nu-gazing scene, and can be found rocking the club scene as well as chilled out festival vibes.

The band are well known on the UK festival circuit, but fit just as comfortably into DJ-led club environments and recently enjoyed a worldwide hit with Tocadisco’s electro-house remix of their Air-like ‘Walking Away’ (and with David Guetta’s bootleg of the same track). They have played throughout Europe, Australia and Brazil, and have just completed a three week US tour of the Mid-West and East Coast, as well as 2 nights including New York city’s Nokia Theater having been welcomed into the US Jam Band Scene where they play comfortably alongside the scene’s largest acts.

The band’s latest album ‘Forwards’ has recently been released in the USA by Spektacle Entertainment (Neurodisc),. They are working with/have worked with/ been remixed by: Mylo, Rollo (Faithless), Next Men, Decoder(Kosheen), Fila Brazillia, Monk & Canatella, Pentatonic, Grand National, Dusty Kid Pop, Tocadisco, Ulrich Schnauss, Camille Jones, Sophie Barker (zero 7), Oliver Koletski, Atomic Hooligan, Greg Hunter and then some….

They are currently working on a new album with producers Benji Vaughan (aka Younger Brother, producer of Forwards), Greg Hunter and Bruno Ellingham (producer of New Order, Goldfrapp, Mertz, and more…).
Members: Ned Scott (vocals, keyboards), Maff Scott (drums), Ben Cullum (bass), Matt White (guitar), Shaun Hunter (live sound + co-writing)
