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 their Spiritland Royal Festival Hall brunch sessions, they'll be carving a path between the country and latino forms of soul, funk and disco – drawing on the original records that inform their dancefloor edits and remixes.
