Two disco bandoleros pioneering their own route through the great electronic wilderness – this year taking in Pikes, Glastonbury, Port Eliot and a trip West to the motherland on the cards.

With their boots firmly planted in dusty seventies sunsets, their panamerican productions take cosmic country funk to club and festival dancefloors via NYC latin disco and baggy acid house. Think the first summer of love meeting the second – Crosby, Stills and Nash at the Haçienda, The Doors at Shoom, The Orb at Woodstock.

At Spiritland Royal Festival Hall, they'll be carving a path between the country and latino forms of soul, funk and disco as part of our Meltdown programming while Despacio takes place upstairs.

Lost in music and neck deep in the world of records, Jeremy caught the bug during the late 90s in his native Wellington, NZ. Following a move to London in 2000, he spent the next ten years loitering in Soho’s record stores, DJing at East End parties and running with local music crews, this left an indelible mark.

A move to Melbourne in 2000 and a partnership with Jamie Bennett lead to the birth of Crown Ruler’s online record store. Showcasing his expansive musical knowledge and knack for trawling forgotten music from across the globe, the unearthing and celebration of music goes deep. It has lead him to consult on a number of acclaimed reissues, curate and source records for a wide variety of local and international clients and launch the Crown Ruler record label. This all culminated in 2017’s Crown Ruler SoundCompilation for London based label, Space Talk. In 2018 Jeremy’s hard work and keen ear saw him start work for Soundway records, working alongside label boss Miles Cleret curating and licensing releases for the esteemed London based label.

A former broadcaster for Melbourne’s PBS 106.7fm and playing events with the likes of Larry Heard, Theo Parrish, ESG, Greg Wilson, Horse Meat Disco, Idjut Boys, Awesome Tapes From Africa and more, Jeremy’s musical gauge is set directly to the heart, head and ears. Expect his genre bending sets to have no rules, you’ll hear the unheard and obscure right next to stone cold classics.

Funk loving good for nothing nerd making house music and the like.

A self-confessed nerd and 'slave to the funk', Harry was raised on a diet of 'Gang Starr, St Germain, all things Ninja Tune and drum & bass' and there aren't many styles of music that he hasn't dabbled with this past decade.

Having found his feet amongst the deeper echelons of house music, 2012 saw Harry's seminal remix of Ben Pearce's crossover hit 'What I Might Do' smashed out in clubs all over the world. DJ sets across the UK and mainland Europe ensued with remixes and EPs going out on the likes of Strictly Rhythm, Island Records, Dirt Crew and OUTPLAY

In recent times Harry's more sample-focused fusion of house music with his deeper seated influences in hip hop, jazz, soul and funk has found its way onto records for the likes of House of Disco and Dirt Crew Recordings... and into the record bags of Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia, Karizma, Seven Davis Jr and Jimpster to name but a few.
