This summer Moscow becomes the football capital of the world. However, it won’t be just about football: at the same time Moscow will hold ‘Music.
Football 2018’ festival. Super-stars of electronic music will make the tune of the most important football combats for the whole month. Giants of the EDM scene will be providing score for the biggest battles on the pitch through the month. 22nd of June the project will be joined by a new artist and one more club of Sogrado Corp. holding: classics of the modern d&b, Australians Pendulum will perform at Izvestia Hall with many-hours DJ-set.
In the middle of 00s Pendulum has entirely reviewed the rules of drum & bass. Following other preachers of the breaks, The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers, they started actively using hard guitar riffs in their tracks, uniting electronic music with alternative rock and even heavy metal. As a result of these experiments, their third studio album ‘Immersion’ became platinum in Great Britain, and Pendulum themselves turned to be one of the most demanded and titled teams of the United Kingdom. But a bit later the project was put on hold: Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen got addicted to the electro-house and were developing their side-band Knife Party.
Pendulum came back only in 2016, with a triumphal life on the main of Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Today, musicians are in a great creative shape and ready for active tours. Rumors of a new album release are confirmed, ‘The Reworks’ contains 13 remixes on classic Pendulum tracks. Among their authors - Moby, Skrillex, Knife Party and DJ Seinfeld. Announced release date is 29th of June. But very possible, that these tracks will be performed in Moscow even before the official premiere, during Pendulum DJ set in Izvestia Hall.
