808 State – In Yer Face (Bicep Remix)

With the original track charting at number nine in the UK charts back in 1991, here’s the first of two forthcoming Bicep remixes of 808 State’s ‘In Yer face’.

This follows on from the success of their double remix release of Blaze’s ‘Lovelee Dae’ a few weeks back:

Bicep – Celeste

It’s time for your weekly dose of Bicep lovin’.

The Belfast boys withdraw from their trademark style for ‘Celeste’, replacing the stomping 4×4 with bongo drums and vocal hooks with drawn-out swoons.  The result is a transfixing piece of dance music unlike anything we’ve heard from them before, carried off like it was their signature sound.  Definitely one to miss-your-bus-stop to.

Catch them at their summer residency at XOYO throughout July, August & September.  Not one to miss.

Bicep – Just

Now this is something. ‘Just’ is the new one from Bicep, brought to you (and us) by the increasingly influential Boiler Room Debuts, and it’s a humdinger of a tune. Combining atmospheric builds with catchy riffs and busy percussion, it’s a multilayered beast that should probably soundtrack an esoteric sci-fi film that you say you love but, if you’re really honest, you don’t really understand. It’s out on May 25th anyway (the track, not the film).

Bicep – Essential Mix

Flexing their muscles again, Essential Mix called up Bicep a couple of weeks back and it’s just hit Soundcloud:

They’ve called it ‘club-focused’ and that serves nicely as an umbrella for their wide-ranging selections. Get stuck in.

And oh boy are we in for a treat this weekend:

Bicep – Poly Pineapple

Ladies and gentleman, a SUPER FUZZY ITALO INSPIRED PUMPER:

That’s how Bicep described the second track from their new FMB004, ‘Poly Pineapple’. It’s pretty much spot on, no further words required. It follows on from the lead track, ‘Lyk Lyk’, a very enjoyable breakbeat-infused house track with some chopped vocals on top:

All shaping up very nicely we reckon.

John Talabot – Bicep Remixes

JT’s producing bangers for fun right now…

You thought we meant Justin Timberlake didn’t you? Heathens. Anyway, John Talabot’s followed up his superb Pional remix with not one but two remixes for the latest Bicep release and they are both EXCELLENT. It’s rolling tech house of the kind JT (careful…) is world-beating at right now. We will be as ‘down the front’ as it’s possible to be on 8th November for his Hivern Discs showcase.

Bicep – Feel It

Back in early October, the New York radio show ‘Beats In Space‘ welcomed Bicep into the studio for a guest mix. Wanting to do something special for the legendary show, the Belfast boys played a load of unreleased material they’ve worked on over the years. Due to popular demand, they’ve decided to master this track from it, ‘Feel It’. As usual, it’s a whole heap of fun and serves up the typical toe-tapping infectious beats we’ve come to know and love from Bicep, all backed up with top 90s synth and vocal snippets.

Celebrating the fourth birthday of their excellent Feel My Bicep Blog, they’re giving this track away for FREE. They shouldn’t be the ones doing the giving surely?

If you want to hear the full mix they did for Beats In Space too check it out here, along with a ‘Night Trax’ mix they did for Night People Radio. Something they “wanted to take you into those late morning afterhours with.” All too kind. Enjoy.

Bicep – Vision Of Love

“If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.” This is what Napoleon famously said, at some stage during the French Revolution. It also seems to be the ethos for the rising stars that are Bicep, the Irish-raised and now London-based duo.

Famed for their Feel My Bicep blog (a tasty insight into what makes them tick musically), they’ve decided to start releasing records on their very own Feel My Bicep Records label. And excitingly enough the first release is brought to you from the lads themselves. It’s a vinyl-only 3-track EP entitled ‘Vision Of Love’ and here’s the title track from it, a ‘cheeky 90s piano houser’. Starting as they mean to go on, we hope they’ll have more luck conquering the UK than the aforementioned military leader. Too much? Just let the music do the talking.
