Bicep Atlas Having been teased in numerous DJ sets over recent months—and predictably leading to much excited anticipation among their fans online—Bicep announce their new single ‘Atlas’, available today digitally and on 12” from 3rd April on Ninja Tune. Their first new music since 2018’s ‘Rain’ EP. “It would've been unthinkable to foresee the circumstances this track would be released in when we were making it. Our frame of mind was so positive then, fresh off the back of our live tour, full of excitement for the next phase. ‘Atlas’ was our attempt at summing up some of the euphoric moments we experienced on that tour across those two years. It feels like those moments are very far away for all of us right now, but we hope this serves as some form of distraction amidst all this chaos.” - Matt & Andy (Bicep) Ninja Tune 12" Out of Stock
Bicep / Four Tet Opal (Four Tet Remix) A white label remix of Bicep's track Opal that featured on their 2017 debut album. Remixed by the legend that is Four Tet. Flip for non album track 'Helix'. The results are predictably special. Working with an already blissful track, Four Tet maintains the high levels of feeling, but imbues his version with a melancholic tinge, stretching out layers and adding new textures.

Bicep Glue 12" single taken from Bicep's debut album. “Glue,” is a slice of tranquil breakbeat better suited for sunrise comedowns than peak-hours sets. They layer gently stuttering synths and sumptuous melodies until the song’s midway point, where they introduce a slightly melancholic vocal loop that feels like a long exhale of relief.

Bicep / Brassica / John Talabot Satisfy Remixes - Inc. Brassica / John Talabot Remixes Brassica and John Talabot remix Bicep's Satisfy. Very limited one off pressing, as with all the FMB releases... Ahead of Brassica’s debut LP coming in November on Civil Music he takes the original to flip Satisfy into a peak time teaser which grows, twists and mutates whilst keeping the details eloquent and the vibe most importantly fun. The Bicep boys have been closing sets with this all summer. John Talabot takes on the AA side with his RainMix reaching for his melodic sensibilities whilst slowly building a thumper. It creates tension on the dancefloor with the stabs of the original often prevalent before a spaced out dreamy breakdown. Feel My Bicep 12" Out of Stock
Bicep Circles EP Bicep's 'Circles' EP from 2014 gets a timely re-press... Killer combo here, the mighty Bicep back on Will Saul's Aus label once more with two more catchy deep house/techno outings. Very much on point! "This is techno that hasn’t forgotten where it came from, essentially. Using gritty, vintage-sounding rhythm sections as solid foundations, each track gradually builds up its own lush, melodic embellishments overtop - “Circles” stays true to its name with a cyclical main melody, shadowy bass and fuzzy house pads, whereas “NRG106″ sets spacey, dramatic chords and breathy vocals against the insistent, chittering machine percussion.

Bicep / Carl Craig Vision Of Love [Carl Craig c2 edits] The speed at which Bicep have risen through the ranks is staggering. Two years ago they were bedroom bloggers; now, they're among the most hyped producers around. Here, they pop up on Kevin Saunderson's KMS label with "Vision of Love", the typically tough and wide-eyed chunk of US house revivalism that originally surfaced on their eponymous label last year. It's devilishly simple, with a few key ingredients - big piano riffage, subtle strings and booming beats - being whisked together to produce a peak time delight whilst the cheeky usage Inner City vocal samples is what has lead to it being reissued through KMS. Carl Craig edits, delivering a version that expertly teases out the piano and vocal, via a few well-placed drops and effects. It's this version that hits home hardest, but we wouldn't expect anything less. KMS 12"
Bicep Satisfy New vinyl only release of three more (Feel My) Bicep belters. Full on 90's jackin' night music from the Irish duo. Limited one off pressing.Lead track "Satisfy" discards with the 90s house aesthetic in favour of a breakbeat lead groove that's a bit 80s freestyle and a bit Baltimore club, whilst "Snackbar" demonstrates Bicep are increasingly willing to take a tougher approach - as anyone whose seen their recent techno heavy sets will attest. Head to "The Final Trip" for a taste of that classic pairing of jackin' 909 and Juno 60 in full flight. Feel My Bicep 12"
