Ninja Tune / UK

Bicep's music consists of high doses of house and techno, both classic and contemporary, as well as electro, italodisco, garage, experimental and slightly psychedelic escapades. Their sights remain firmly fixed on the dance floor and if we study their "body of work" to date it is abundantly clear how incredibly consistent they are. There is also, of course, their first official LP, "Bicep", an album –released on Ninja Tune- that works perfectly in any format and situation: from casual laptop to attentive headphone listening and especially in the club.
To this list we must now add Sónar Istanbul. Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson form one of the strongest and most revered partnerships on the international scene. They have been releasing EPs, singles and remixes since 2010 (which saw them remix Spain's Aster, for example) as well as releasing material from other artists through their blog and label, Feel My Bicep. Over time they have earned an unequalled reputation for their productions that often oscillate between several genres and are characterized by a robust and penetrating muscular sound, without fissures and impervious to the passage of time.
