2014 Blew our tiny minds

bangface95_355

Phew 2014 has been a mad one!! We saw the New Year in at Fantazia and instantly started to tick off our bucket list for the forthcoming year. We soon ticked off playing at Fabric, Glasgow’s Sub Club, Ibiza, Boomtown Fair, Sea Sessions, the legendary Dreamscape and also had some dream gigs that just blew our minds – Dourfest in Belgium and Future Sound of Breaks in Orlando to name two. It still amazes us that people love Old Skool and hold 2 Bad Mice close to their hearts. This was shown with repeat bookings for Gottwood Festival, Penn Festival, Wilkestock and Bangface. To all of the promoters that booked us – thanks – we had a blast!

A phrase was famously coined many years ago – “Hardcore will never Die”…..it hasn’t and it is now exciting new generations of clubbers and ravers worldwide. This became even more evident when out of the blue we were asked to do a remix for man of the moment Breach. He had recorded a track with Kelis and being an Old Skool nut (and fellow Hertford resident – see the connection?) thought he might coax us out of our 20 year “studio retirement”. Well, he managed it and after the first beer settled the nerves in the studio, we pretty much nailed it. We have been humbled by the reaction to our first production in 20 years and a new EP is on the cards for 2015.

2014 really did blow our tiny little minds.

We’ll be updating with our personal highlights of the year soon.

The importance of choosing your artist name

fabriclive-spring-2014-TOP

Few young, aspiring artists realise the true importance of choosing the right artist name. Fortunately for us, we had the foresight to choose a name that begins with a number rather than a letter. That stroke of genius has now paid off as we find ourselves right at the very top of Fabric’s spring flyer.

P.S. WE’RE PLAYING AT FABRIC :)

Retrotrax 2013 – our review

Retro-Trax-8
Not only was May my birthday month but it also saw the return of the Retro Trax Festival. We were over the moon to be asked to play again, so thought we would drag the amazing DJ Faydz along for our mini PA too – just like the year before. Our journey was slightly tense as it was the maiden voyage for Rhodesy’s new camper van that had been receiving major mechanical treatment the week before but it was filled with camping equipment, beer, laptops, records, beer, sleeping bags, beer and fags, before we set off from Stevenage and Hertford…

The LOST track

Back in 1994, Simon and Sean recorded a track in Sean’s studio. It only ever got sent to a few people, Fabio GrooveRider, Randall….that’s it. Somewhere along the way the DATs got lost and the tune was lost forever. We have no recordings of it of any kind.

Until now.
