This duo of Finnish architects launched their career in 2008 with Spraycan on Switch's Dubsided. They soon found eager champions in the tastemakers at Kitsuné, Sound Pellegrino, and the blogtelligensia over at Fluokids. By 2010, they were legitimate players, having remixed WhoMadeWho, Delphic, Crystal Fighters, Brodinski, Crookers, Health, and, most recently, Azari & III. A more refined, structural sound emerged on the Babbadabba EP on Made to Play. And the larger scope of their commitment to intelligent design comes to fruition on Turbo Recordings, erecting a post-tropical hermitage of dancing man's thought-funk. The music is highly detail-oriented, referencing everything from bass music to curry house, with eyes and ears trained on millennia of art and concept, with a special emphasis on the millennia when music actually existed. The first track and single, "...When You Do What You Do" is a who's-what-you-who of blazing critical house. Renaissance Man. Designing the box. Building the box. Thinking on top of the box. Features Tuomas Toivonen (Acid Kings, Giant Robot), Helsinki Bass Machine and K-X-P.
