With a name that refers to the golden era of the fish-eye optic of the cyber R’n’B in the nineties and a small catalogue of publications that drag the listener through the quarry of pop culture with the tenacious vehemence of a good cough mixture trip, the duo Roy Blunt and Inga Copeland quickly became "micro-celebrities" of their own genre, somewhere in the digital sprawl between Shoreditch and Neukölln.
With a sampler full of disintegrating loops, mumbled dub poetry and somnambulant karaoke, supplemented by profound basic urban knowledge, a tendency towards weird voice samples and confused identities, the duo constructs tomorrow’s world from yesterday’s leftovers. Their track "The Throning" is a partial reworking of Sade's "Sweetest Taboo", and sounds like a karaoke rehearsal surreptitiously recorded on a stolen mobile phone.
They have recently signed to the Hippos in Tanks label, releasing the Dior
EP free for download, with a full-length slated for release in 2011.
