Here’s one for the dancers! Relaxed beats that still have an energetic thrill is the spirit of Ross From Friends, who will bring his live set to Newcastle’s Boiler Shop on Friday 18th February. Armed with new album Tread, released in October, the DJ who has previously performed barn-storming sets at the likes of Glastonbury and Coachella is embarking on a UK tour.

The producer and DJ’s soundscapes are atmospheric, with a softness and a danceability that makes the music easy to listen to outside of a club setting. On newer tracks such as Love Divide the influence of garage music is heard in the beats, whilst older tracks, such as fan-favourite Talk To Me You’ll Understand, have an altogether more prosaic feel, managing to encapsulate productivity and remarkable style.

The British electronic producer is supported in his set by two friends, who provide sax, keys, and electronic guitar, elevating the tracks beyond a regular DJ set.
