- HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL.
Bicep return to their Feel My Bicep Records with 4 original tracks. 2 on each side of a 12” heavyweight slab, with the logo debossed on the sleeve.
First up is a LYK LYK, a playful festival tune giving a nod to early rave sounds, and breaks. This is followed with POLY PINEAPPLE which leans on the Belfast boys’ love of fuzzy Italo disco and techno.
On the flip they collaborate with long term school friend and blog partner Rory Hamilton (aka Hammer) for the first time. ICE BOWL takes the B1 with broken drum patterns and melancholic chord progressions…"We are big fans of freestyle and old Baltimore club tracks, starting off with a broken 808 we began jamming together chopping vocals and melodies live,
in our heads keeping it fun but rough."
Last but not least DAY 3 re-ups the tempo back up with a stripped out pad driven techno track. "This one was made after a few long days in the studio, being sick of drum machines at that stage we plugged in the vocoder and started making beats out of that. 'Day 3' was intended for that early morning feel when the sun is just about to break and the light begins to creep into the club"
