EDITORS’ NOTES

Long before London-by-way-of-Belfast’s Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar released their first 12-inch as Bicep, they’d proven themselves curators of the highest order, plucking out crucial techno, house, and disco tracks for their Feel My Bicep blog. This self-titled debut LP is where their impeccable tastes and killer DJ instincts all come together. “Glue” wears the duo's classic dance influences on its sleeve: It starts like a breaks-driven UK garage tune, but slyly morphs into something resembling atmospheric, ‘90s downtempo. And their love of ethereal vibes and Balearic house lives in the moody, blissed-out “Drift” and “Ayaya."
