We hear how the Canadian duo rose to the top, and stayed there.
It felt like Art Department graduated from Toronto's club scene to the international stage overnight. Their swift rise can be attributed to their breakthrough single, "Without You," which was voted RA's number one track of 2010. Thanks to DJs like Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler, the tune was a certified hit even before it was officially released. A year later they dropped their debut album, The Drawing Board, which established Kenny Glasgow and Jonny White as one of the biggest acts in contemporary house music. The subsequent three years have flown by for the pair, who relocated from Canada to Europe to maintain their hectic touring schedule. Stopping by RA's London office, they were in a talkative mood, lifting the lid on the story behind "Without You," tracing their origins in the Toronto scene and discussing their upcoming second album, Natural Selection.
