Bicep have appeared here before with their singular approach to house. Glue is their new one but sadly there’s only a clip to which to listen. This harks back to the late 80s with its use of The Funky Drummer beat pattern to open before the vocals slip straight into classic house sounds. That doesn’t last and it emerges, blinking into the light of a future house dimension.


“Glue” embodies the raw energy of UK rave culture, references skeletal UKG and could have emerged from the studio of Orbital or The Future Sound Of London at their trailblazing best. Annie Mac is set to debut it tonight on Radio 1 on her “Live From Ibiza” show.

Bicep’s debut album is the perfect summation of their career to date – a sonic tour of their history touching the cornerstones of underground club culture and sees the duo pull off the rarest of feats: to make a singularly unique electronic record founded on the blueprint of classic house, techno, electro and Italo disco, but flipped and morphed into a fresh design bearing the unique Bicep sonic signature.

Since its release, lead track “Aura” has collected hundreds of thousands of streams and surged to the top 5 on Spotify’s Viral Chart, until then simply having been tagged as ‘Unreleased Bicep’ on countless bootleg recordings from recent gigs, uploaded by fans trying desperately to ID and get their hands on the track.
