About this item
Everyone to the rave cave! Speed For Lovers are here to make you dance! Originally from Sheffield, Liverpool & The Forest Of Dean, the three lovers met in the network of little mesters music studios on John Street in Sheffield. Initially engineering, producing and playing on each other's projects, they subsequently teamed up to form Speed For Lovers in 2010.
The past eight years have been spent wearing out rave trainers, building studios in their attics and sheds, geeking out with Sound on Sound articles and faffing with tech. With two members who came and stayed and one who couldn't leave, 'Hot Yoga Emoji' is the band's ode to Sheffield. Field recordings of late nights out and early stumblings home link tracks together and place their moments of creation in the city.
Spurred on by Sheffield's Kabal nights and trips to The Electric Chair in Mcr, 'Hot Yoga Emoji' mixes live drums and bass guitar with pocket sound generators, old synths and vocals to create an album of irresistible live dance music!
Patrick says: Somebody pinch me! I've darted back through some sort of temporal twister and found myself carefree and keyed up, losing my shit to a dance punk masterpiece. Recalling the best bits of golden era DFA, Gramme or Crazy P, this Sheffield crew are here to make you move.
