The Leeds duo are Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe. Tom reveals their record to get any dancefloor going - as well as the one that cleared it – ahead of playing the Warehouse Project, 3 Nov
How have you evolved as artists evolved over the years?
That’s a hard one! Generally you have to keep evolving to keep up in the scene. We probably listen, buy and collect a more diverse collection of music than ever. This has had a knock-on effect in the studio – we’ve been experimenting in all kinds of weird and wonderful sounds and styles!
What’s your record to get any dancefloor going?
PBR – THNKLV, which is out now on Skint.
Any record that unfortunately cleared it?
Playing Queeny by Ethol Meat Plough is always a risk – but fun!
What song do you wish you’d produced?
Alice Smith – Love Endeavor (Maurice Fulton Remix).
You’re playing an extended set at the Warehouse Project for WHP and Circus presents Knee Deep In Sound on 3 November. What is your favourite Warehouse Project memory?
We played NYE a few years ago – it was an absolute riot, all the rooms were packed, it was a great crowd and because it was NYE everyone was really up for it. We brought in midnight, which was a great moment.
What are you up to at the moment artistically?
I made a pie the other week – does that count? But seriously, as well as THNKLV – which has been supported by BBC 6 Music and Elton John on his Beats 1 show alike – we’re also about to announce full details of the deluxe edition of our debut album Late Night Party Line, which will feature some remixes you may know (Paul Woolford, Tuff City Kids) and a bunch you won’t (and that would be telling).
What’s on your rider?
Straight tequila and a gimp mask.
