Are we not bears?

Housey housey housey - If 2012 is gonna be the year of 'house' (as Tim Jonze claimed in the Graniad late last year) it may also be the year of the bear. Make it the 2 Bears. The duo have emerged in January with their claws sharp and gnashers bared ready to do battle on the world's dancefloors and bring about maximum uplift.

Their album 'Be Strong' has pretty much every fucker in the universe yapping - including me. Check out what I had to say about it for Stool Pigeon - and check the Toddla T reworking below. It's a total boomer and has been ruling our kitchen on Friday evenings for the duration of 2012. Check it collective babes...

Never Too Much

Sheffield is the place - and if Sheffield is the place, then 'Never Too Much' is THE lo-fi dance night for the more discerning fan of all things raw, hype, disco and electronic.
