Self-proclaimed all round music junkie, Kaptin aka AAA Badboy, is the Head Of Music for the UK’s fastest growing festival, Boomtown Fair. A musical wizard who has packed out festival stages worldwide and provided mixes for the likes of BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra.
Founding member of early Vintage Remix crew Big Swing Sound and Welsh electronic music stalwarts Chrome Kids, his latest alias (pron. Triple A Badboy) is a nod to his long term involvement with festivals, dating back to the days of manning the Glastonbury gates as a 5 year old (with his Dads supervision of course).
The term is used by festival crews for the famed Access All Areas pass, but Kaptin also wanted a project that allowed him to explore his wide ranging musical tastes, so don’t expect the same mix twice. He’ll drop any and all beats imaginable – Reggae, Soca, Bassline, House, Dancehall, Bashment, Drum N Bass, Jungle, Balkan, Grime, Hip-hop, Funk, Afrobeat, Kuduro, Baile Funk, Hillbilly, Folk, Highlife, Juke / Footwork, Soul, Jazz to name a few… Whatever you come craving, he’s got your rhythm.
Under many other pseudonyms and projects, Kaptin plays regularly at most major alternative UK festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Festival Number 6 and of course BoomTown. This year he’s excited to be making the journey all the way from Bristol to the World Ceilidh, so get your dancing shoes on and come join him!
