Snafu's 8th Birthday Weekender : Thursday
BICEP (Feel My Bicep)
Their mission? To adequately flex your cosmic muscle!!
Bicep are a duo that hail from Belfast, brought together through a common obsession with all things analog. Their blog, Feel My Bicep, has grown to be the first port of call for those searching for cutting-edge and hard-to-find disco (nu and old) / chicago-house / detroit techno / italo / edits and the like. Growing with an amalgamation of jazz, rock and funk helped Bicep form an obscure approach and understanding of music. After each picking up a pair of Technics turntables in their early teens, Andy and Matt set about collecting records and experimenting to find their own style. Skip forward several years and countless DJ gigs and they realized they needed to make their own brand - succumbing to, as Bicep describe it, â€œ80s inspired analog houseâ€œ
Their first 12" on Citizen Kane's Ghost town records sold out within a week gaining worldwide support, whilst their debut on New York's Throne of Blood records, was among the most downloaded tracks on xlr8r.com (currently still highest rated) topped the charts on boomkat.com, and also made Tim Sweeneyâ€™s Favorite LPâ€™s and Singles list over at Beats In Space!
This year with a residency at We Love Space... EP releases blowing up all over the world, remixing, and DJing around Europe, Asia, and the US, Bicep have turned into a global phenomenon.
