Flag Promotions are proud once again to bring a new sound and fusion line up together with the masked performer known as ZARDONIC from Venezuela, he meshes the worlds of Drum and Bass and Heavy Metal together in a pioneering new way! Federico Ágreda Álvarez, known to the world as DJ and producer Zardonic, has harnessed the power of the nexus between Drum & Bass and Heavy Metal to create the sound that is now known as Metal & Bass. Born and raised in Venezuela, inspired by America, and based in Germany with a passport book stamped into oblivion, he also represents a union of cultures. In his music, these elements charge forward on a collision course towards a future without creative or spiritual borders. Instead, the award-winning artist draws an inimitable energy from this confluence. Following a prolific string of releases, high-profile remixes and video game collaborations, packed shows on multiple continents, and 100 million-plus streams, he realizes the power and potential of his vision like never before on his 2023 full-length offering Superstars [MNRK HEAVY]. “It’s been a long road trying to find the perfect flashpoint between the metal and electronic worlds,” and his journey is only just getting started!
Joining him will be WITCH OF THE VALE who are Erin and Ryan, an unsettling electronic duo from the serene shores of Loch Lomond and the remote Outer Hebridean Isles. In December 2020, they released their debut album Commemorate with Cleopatra Records, available to stream and on CD and vinyl . They have also since been featured in the official movie soundtracks for Baphomet and Scavenger.
Erin and Ryan began creating music together after identifying a shared love of a particular style of dark, melodic and at times quite heavy industrial music which they felt was missing from the current scene. Having taught themselves how to record, mix and engineer their own unique sound, the first song they wrote together Trust the Pain would go on to be ranked one of the top electronic tracks of 2019 by The Electricity Club and amodelofcontrol and was later remixed by Leæther Strip and become a dancefloor favourite.
Their debut album released in December 2021 to critical acclaim, went on to reach number 1 both the gothic and the industrial music charts on BandCamp. Later they released more remixes and one of the most popular streamed tracks was Commemorate remixed by none other than Zardonic! And now they are very much looking forward to supporting him on his first UK Tour!
