Acquiring their inspiration and distinct imagery through the iconic 1977 docudrama Pumping Iron (having a very young and pumped Arnold Schwarzenegger), Bicep may be the musical brainchild of Belfast-raised duo Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar. DJing and collecting vinyl fabric since their past due teens, the set’s like of disco, Chicago home, Detroit techno, Italo-Disco, and everything analog in-between motivated them to make a music-based blog page entitled Feelmybicep.com. Performing as an shop for the duo’s eclectic and esoteric dance music preferences, as well simply because showcasing personal mixes and re-edits, they shifted to London and started DJing around the administrative centre. As the web site grew in stature and popularity (it featured visitor mixes from Simian Portable Disco, Ben Sunlight, and Ooft amongst numerous others), they begun to hone their very own production skills leading to their initial 12” discharge on Resident Kane’s Ghost City information (that was released in ’09 2009 under a re-edit known as “Strawberry”). It had been their 2010 12”, “Darwin,” around the Rapture’s co-owned label Throne of Bloodstream that got them wider acknowledgement; with the first support of Beats in Space sponsor and DFA cohort Tim Sweeney, it topped the Boomkat graph and became XLR8R’s most downloaded tabs on 2010. Bicep also released 313 on Traveller Information. This resulted in world-wide DJ gigs, another launch on Throne of Bloodstream — the Silk EP — and even more remix possibilities in 2011 with famous brands Bloodstream Orange, Tal M. Klein, Medlar, and Cosmic Children all obtaining the Bicep treatment. In this same 12 months, they began a regular monthly residency at Plastic material People in East London. In 2012, the set focused their devotion for ‘90s-created New Jersey home music on the vinyl-only 12” $tripper on Like Fever Information and offered well-received remixes for Blondes and Chamboche. Through the latter a part of 2012, Bicep collaborated with Will Saul’s Aus information and started arrangements for their personal label.
