8 Tracks: Of Waking Life

A rundown of acts playing at what is quickly becoming a an annual landmark.

On only its second birthday, Portugal's own Waking Life festival has a lineup to offer that demonstrates a knack for curation well beyond its tender years. Providing some mid-August respite with the likes of Call Super, Andy Stott, Luke Abbot, Huerco S and swathes of talented others, it looks set to quickly become a match for the most canonical entries in the electronic music festival calendar. 

Here's our rundown of eight essential acts for this year's edition.

Djrum - Sex

Djrum - Now couldn’t be a more critical time in Djrum’s career. Portrait With Firewood, his second full-length album but his first for R&S, sees Felix Manuel writing and recording the most personal, intimate music of his career. Hear lead single Sex, which holds the dancer in close, breathy confidence whilst at once devastating them. The new album is released during Waking Life, so expect Djrum to be on top of his game.
