It’s that time of year once more. The college term has officially ended and Trinity students have one final chance to let off steam before the feeling of impending doom arrives and they all collectively shit themselves. This years Trinity Ball has a distinct electronic feel to it with some of the biggest hitters on the lineup already well established in the dance game. With this in mind we decided a little WWD preview was in order. Each of these acts belong to the electronic circle but their styles and sound vary drastically. There is undoubtedly something for everybody. From the poppy fresh sounds of AlunaGeorge to the powerful anthems of Above and Beyond this years ball promises much and we fully expect it to deliver. Keep reading for the full breakdown.
Recent collaboration with Disclosure for “White Noise” reaffirmed their presence in the bass scene, even if not being entirely typical of the genre, and garnered them a host of new fans. It will no doubt go down a storm! With an eventful summer just around the corner, including a Glastonbury appearance, there’s no better opportunity to catch these two than on Friday night.
A&B;’s style is so diverse and far-reaching that it’s almost undefinable. Operating at times as part of OceanLab with Justine Suissa in producing ground-breaking vocal trance, and also under the Tranquillity Base moniker to produce chill-out tracks, these guys stave off any efforts to pigeon-hole their style. However, an impeccable use of breakdowns, soaring builds and uplifting melodies are commonplace in their tracks.
Their appearance in Trinity comes amid a hectic schedule as part of their Group Therapy world tour, stretching back to mid-2011. The trio are accustomed to festival-headlining performances, with Ultra Music Festival a most recent example and an appointment at Creamfields set for August. So the black-tie (yet highly informal) affair of Trinity Ball’s dance tent might represent their most unique stop-off to date.
