The R3 Soundsystem, a mobile rig set to join the People's Vote demonstration in London on Saturday 19th October, has revealed new names for its line-up.
Ed from The Chemical Brothers, Bicep and Floating Points are amongst the latest acts to be added, which is described by organisers as a consortium of DJs, crews, festivals, clubs, and soundsystems pushing for a second referendum. Originally set for 12th October, it will now take place on the new date of 19th after the main People's Vote rally date was changed.
Jayda G, Caribou and Floating Points are among acts who have shared support for a new climate change initiative, Music Declares Emergency.
Coldcut, Mafalda, Jon Hopkins and countless other artists have also vocalised their support for Music Declares Emergency, an initiative that comprises "a group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations that stand together to declare a climate and ecological emergency and call for an immediate governmental response to protect all life on Earth."
Floating Points is locked for the next ‘Late Night Tales’ compilation.
The DJ and producer, AKA Sam Shepherd, will unveil his addition to the revered series next month, which spans global soul, ambient, jazz and folk.
"The music is a selection of the kind of records I play to set the tone when DJing all night long," he said of the idea behind the release. "I’ve learnt about a lot of incredible music from listening to 'Late Night Tales' over the years, so I jumped at the opportunity to compile one myself."

“This year’s been crazy and hectic but good too,” smiles Mafalda. “I’m happy.” And she should be: the London- based, Portuguese DJ has truly gone from in-the-know favourite to widely recognised name in the last 12 months. What makes it all the more remarkable is that the music she plays isn’t stuff you would normally associate with clubs. It flows freely between jazz, world music, soul and funk. It is often obscure and unknown, but still manages to connect with people and send them wild.
