Joe Goddard (GB)
As one-fifth of Hot Chip, half of 2 Bears and flying solo under his own name, Joe Goddard is one of the busiest men in British music. Working at the intersection between pop, indie rock and club music, the 33 year-old Londoner has been responsible for many distinctive musical triumphs, recently via his rambunctious house revivalism as 2 Bears and the lung-busting 2011 anthem "Gabriel." He also co-runs the Greco-Roman label, dabbles in remixing and choice side-projects, such as his involvement with burn studios' 2013 Residency. In May, Goddard and fellow artists Steve Lawler, Maceo Plex, Fatboy Slim and Solomun will decamp to Ibiza to mentor a group of young DJs for burn's now annual competition on the island.
