C IS FOR CHICKEN LIPS (PT1)

Some dub breaks from Chicken Lips, formed at the turn of the Millennium from the ashes of Bizarre Inc.

 

Chicken Lips are Andrew Meecham, Dean Meredith and Steve Kotey. Founder Members Andy and Dean have a long musical history together having recorded as a pair for over a decade. As well as working under the Chicken Lips name, Andy also records as Sir Drew. Together they also made up the seminal early nineties dance act Bizarre Inc (see previous post here).

 

Since then Chicken Lips have become one of the most well respected acts in dance music. The Chicken Lips original approach to production is often a spartan approach to breaks and has led to remix work for the likes of Bentley Rhythm Ace, Underworld, Mo’Wax, FC Kahuna, Hooj Choons, Stereo MC’s, Playgroup, Maurice Fulton, Justin Robertson to name but a few.

 

Their recordings for Kingsize saw 3 early 12″ singles which have now become collectors items. Their debut album Echoman (1999) drew on eighties NYC influences. The second album ‘Extended Play’ continued the journey. 2003 saw the release of their debut mix album ‘Bodymusic’ as part of NRK’s Nitelife series and they also completed a DJ Kicks album for K7’s compilation series.

 

Here’s a track from the K7 compilation and some remixes from their time at Kingsize:
