“If you take Iron Man, D’angelo and Karma Kid then put them in a soup it would taste how we’re feeling at the moment”.
So say Lancaster electronic duo Bondax, who are currently making huge waves on the dance music scene, both here in the UK and abroad.
Only last week Adam Kaye and George Townsend, both just 19-years-old and fresh out of Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale, recorded a Mixmag session alongside DJ legend Felix Da Housecat, and are supporting The Basement Jaxx for a sold out show in July.
They are also high up on the list at Beatherder and Kendal Calling Festival this year, and with 50,000 “likes” on their Facebook page and an album on the way, things look set to be exploding for these two musicians.
Bondax was born two years ago, after the duo met at school through mutual friends.
George had started producing by himself and Adam was playing in an indie/rock band with some school friends.
“We decided to start working together as we both had similar tastes in dance music,” they said.
“Initially we would say our influences have been artists like MJ Cole, now we listen to everything from older disco, soul and funk to new house music from labels like Dirtybird.
“The music is electronic and emotive and we like to think that it’s easy to enjoy without being obvious and it gets people dancing.
“Playing in Paris recently with our friend Karma Kid was great fun, big crowd and we really love the city. Also we took a couple of friends with us to Barcelona not long ago, which is also one of our favourite cities. America was also truly humbling and a real dream come true for both of us.”
Adam and George cited the Transmission Collective and Aquilo as local electronic acts to watch, and said they loved their recent performance at The Sugar House in Lancaster. They are currently recording an album at Red Bull Studios in London, and plan a “big party set with some fun surprises” at their Kendal Calling show.
