You know, it’s a rare thing in 2012 when you find people who are flickering in the spotlight as a result of patience and passion without calling in any favors. About four years ago, two 20-something-year-old Irish guys with no ulterior motives other than sharing exciting dance music from the past and present started a blog called Feel My Bicep. Little did they know, a few years later, that the blog would become a name for their own music project and a platform that literally sends them out to enthrall sweaty dance floors around the world. From attending elementary school together to sneaking into Belfast’s nightclubs with fake IDs, Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar had already been successful partners in crime long before their fortuitous rising success as soldiers of authentic house music in a modern era. When the two briefly parted ways for University,they found themselves spending more time sending each other tracks over Skype than studying, which eventually lead to Matt moving to London to join Andy in perusing their full transformation from trusted taste-makers to legitimate producers. And soon enough their hardworking hobby started to get real, considering their recent 12’’ single “$tripper”was limited to only 500 copies but scored over 65,000 plays on SoundCloud. The days of jamming for hours on the bedroom turntables are a distant memory for them at this point,but Andy and Matt are still enthusiastic about it as ever.
