Bicep (LIVE)

Touring the world over, curating and selling out a long list of Feel My Bicep parties (including Manchester’s Warehouse Project and a 12­week residency at London’s XOYO), their formidable DJ efforts snagged them the #8 ranking in Resident Advisor’s “Top 100 DJs” 2016 poll. Then in 2016 they built and tested a roof­raising live show ­ a powerful counterpoint to their much loved DJ sets that not only highlights the breadth and depth of the Bicep discography, brings to the fore both their skilful production and formidable engineering chops, but again reinforces their genius curatorial flair. They debuted it at Moogfest, with further live plays reviewed enthusiastically (including at London’s Village Underground which sold out in 3 minutes).

2017 sees them embarking on an extensive live world tour, including festival plays at Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera Sound, Melt, Dekmantel, Lovebox and Parklife, where they will run their own stage. As label heads, their Feel My Bicep imprint has served as an outlet for some of their most warmly received original productions and remixes (and further releases from hotly­tipped peers too). Beyond its musical output, the logo created by designer Matt ­ a reference to their love for Italo disco ­ has become one of the most iconic logos in underground music and is synonymous with the duo’s legendary annual “Italo Disco” parties.
