London's forward-thinking electronic music night FOUND presents the next instalment of Trix, featuring headliner 2020 Vision's Simon Baker supported by Aus and Hotflush artists Midland, George Fitzgerald, Numbers' Deadboy, and Pedestrian. Arch Two will be hosted by Deadplate Records' Synamatix, with Randomer (Hemlock), James Fox and Artifact (check back tomorrow for his Dazed Digital mix).
Known for his catchy as hell Somethin' For The People-sampling release on Well Rounded Housing Project, South London-based DJ and producer James Fox, will be bringing down the deepest in groove-heavy house. Here we speak to him ahead of his set, alongside an exclusive new mix featuring the likes of Catz'n'Dogz, Wolf Music's Medlar, and Perseus...
