Kicking off our Mayfair Street Party on Sunday morning (from 11am) with Elektrical Sound System are these underground heroes of the UK festival circuit. The collective is made up of a rag tag bunch of street dancers, MC's, Flapper Girls and fronted by DJs - Kaptin and Matt The Hat.
Kaptin & Matt The Hat first started spinning a mixture of Vintage Swing and UK beats back in 2005 under the name The Chaps, and after a few year’s hiatus, they returned with the dawn of Electro Swing as Big Swing Sound.
Having tailored their sound to appeal to a wider audience, they have been tearing down stages at festivals across the world, from Iceland to Asia, Canada to across Europe. They are mostly at home on the UK festival circuit however, including right here at Boomtown where they have packed out The Ballroom on more than one occasion, plus have been recording official mixes for us over the past few years.
They are joined on stage by one of the UK’s finest young MC’s Hypeman Sage (Dutty Moonshine Big Band / Subculture Sage), who has been all over the radio, leading YouTube channels such as SBTV and Majestic Casual and music sites such as Noisey (Vice) with his tunes.
