based collective have catapulted into the field of contemporary-classical
crossover music weaving breakbeat, D&B and electronica into layers
of strings and percussion. With an impressive list of sessions, collaborations
and concerts to their name, the ensemble were signed to DJ Gilles Peterson
label Brownswood following spectacular performances at London club Cargo

UNKLE and Bonobo.
