The 2 Bears debut album Be Strong has been a revelation. The hirsute duo made up of Joe Goddard of Hot Chip & Raf Rundell aka the Raf Daddy have made a record that has touched people from many a different musical and cultural background.
Their roots, of course lay in House music and it’s that genre that essentially defines The 2 Bears. So, brace yourself for four tantalizing mixes of one of The 2 Bears’ finest house cuts Take A Look Around.
The 2 Bears Vs House Of House opens the 12”. Raf & Joe teamed up with Liv & Saheer to produce one of the tightest reworks the bears have seen. Fellow House moguls The Wild Geese supply a techy, psychedelic rehash accompanied by a more dancefloor centric dub! Last, but certainly not least Caze Nove supply a straight up, four to the floor house remix.
The 2 Bears have a busy summer ahead, filled with festivals, Ibiza dates and UK shows. Joe, being the busiest man in pop music will also be touring with Hot Chip and promoting the bands fifth album, which will be released in the summer. 2012, the year of the bear!
