2012 Roundup

December 31, 2012

The last year was a good year for us. Before we move on to bigger and better things in 2013 here’s a recap of our 2012…

Our first gig of the year was at the mighty !Kaboogie‘s 6th birthday bash in February. Also on the bill was Ms Dynamite, Champion and the !K Djs. We had the forethought to record our set so here it is:

April saw the release of the ‘Arc EP’ on Blueprint records, receiving support from Surgeon, Luke Slater, Silent Servant, Pfirter, Ben Sims and more. Check out reviews from Inverted Audio and Resident Advisor.

June we played our first UK date at Glade festival on the Overkill stage, alongside DJ Rashad, Boddika, Randomer and loads more. Much fun was had. Not as much fun was had at Bloc, which we all know what happened there, so our London debut had to wait til August at the Lightbox with Darkstar, Luke Vibert, Kryptic Minds, deBruit and more.

Mixmag gave away a free track of ours ‘Flunky’ to promote the gig. Get it here:

Also in August we did a mix for Rob Booth’s excellent Electronic Explorations series.

August was a busy month for us, playing also at the Krake festival in Berlin alongside Tim Exile and Ceephax Acid Crew. We finally got to debut our AV show to a Berlin crowd after technical difficulties last time we played. Some footage of it is here in this promo clip:

November saw the release of our second EP on Blueprint, the ‘Torann EP’. Reviews and feedback were good recieving support from Luke Slater, Rob Hall, Untold, and more.

Our final release of the year came in December on Love Love Records, entitled ‘Deathmask’. Read a review here. Support from Surgeon, Cassegrain, Darko Esser, King Cannibal…

Our final bit of output for 2012 was a podast for one of our favourite labels, Killekill. With this podcast we wanted to show the type of thing we may play in a DJ set, so it’s beat heavy, banging and for the ‘floor.

So that was our 2012. We’re looking forward to seeing what 2013 brings. First up is a remix on the wonderful Stroboscopic Artefacts label……

See you next year 🙂
