BICEP

Next up on Bicep's Feel My Bicep imprint is a fresh single from fellow Irishman ​Cromby​​, featuring two remixes from Electro stalwart ​DeFeKT and the ever-dependable ​Shanti Celeste​​.
Having held down a 6-year residency at ​Shine​​ in his hometown of Belfast, Cromby now lives in Berlin where he has continued his ascent; having gone on to earn sets at ​Panorama Bar​​ and​ Robert Johnson ​​as well as a release on Denis Sulta’s Silver Service label.
Now - he slots neatly into the FMB catalogue with ​'Retribution'​​ - a single that draws from his experience spent on the floor and behind the booth at clubs in Berlin, with it's stirring chords and frazzled drums.
DeFeKT's offers up a buoyant, 808-heavy take on the original while Shanti's 'Chill' mix omits the kicks in favour of her signature sunny synth tones.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Not your typical Bicep tackle but... as good as you expect it to be. This one is a bit deeper but still grants you those climaxes your punters are salivating for. The Defekt remix goes all polished electro, whilst Shanti Celeste cool things right down to an almost trippy ambient number. Ace release for a top DJ like you!

Bicep return to their own Feel My Bicep imprint with a floor melting four tracker on one heavyweight slab, packaged in a sweet debossed sleeve. First up is the 'ardcore sampling "Lyk Lyk", a playful festival tune which pays its dues to early rave and breaks, taking you back to a simpler time of hastily assembled sound systems and countryside raves. The skipping rhythms (with the obligatory "whoop") play home to chip set synths and bubbling basslines. This is followed with the direct speaker assault of "Poly Pineapple", spawned out of the Belfast boys’ love of fuzzy Italo disco and techno. The sprawling sequences and urgent hats ramp up the intensity as the track's crescendo explodes into a sparkling climax. On the flip they collaborate with long term school friend and blog partner Rory Hamilton (aka Hammer) for the first time ever! "Ice Bowl" takes the B1 with broken drum patterns and melancholic chord progressions, reimagining Bmore freestyle through the futuristic gloom of capitalism. Last but not least "Day 3" fires the tempo back up as the crew summon the dawn with euphoric pads and driving percussion.

Bicep - the Belfast-born, London-based duo of Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson are mainstays in the current dance music climate. Fresh off the back of groundbreaking live performances across the globe (notably Dekmantel but also here at MCR's Parklife) they now present their debut album - as it its taken them this long! First coming onto our radar in 2010, the pair have come a long way since the initial 'NY house revival' that set their careers alight after running a tastemaking blog - Feel My Bicep. The perfect summation of the duo’s career to date - "Bicep" is a sonic tour of their history touching the cornerstones of underground club culture. Matt and Andy have pulled off the rarest of feats, to make a singularly unique electronic record founded on the blueprint of classic house, techno, electro and Italo disco, but flipped and morphed into a fresh design bearing the unique Bicep sonic signature. It’s a perfectly succinct album: loose, raw and energetic enough for the dancefloor, yet refined, artfully composed and contemplative enough for home listening.
