A Word With BICEP, Before They Fall Asleep

Written by
March 14, 2013


A couple years after coming together on the decks full-time and manning their popular Feel My Bicep blog, Andy Ferguson and Matthew McBriar sit in front of two steaming bowls of Phở talking of jet lag and sleepness nights turning into days turning into gigs and back into night again as their tasty sets have taken them around the world and back, but of course the tone overall says that they wouldn’t have it any other way. Tonight we get to be another notch in Bicep’s belt as their first ever visit to Seattle is happening right now, all 12 hours of it.

So before these boys fell asleep on me in preparation to sling records tonight at Q Nightclub with Karl Kamakahi and myself, I got to squeeze a couple of questions out of them.

Nark: Is there any Seattle things you wish you could do had you more time to spend here? Spit off the space needle? Be really passive aggressive?
Bicep: Hahahaha, erm, probably try and head to some of the parks near Mt. Rainier, maybe try an climb her and then take a bath in some iced coffee to cool off!

Nark: What’s the most exciting thing coming up for you two this year?
Bicep: Really looking forward to the next release on our own label and also to our next gig at our favourite club in Berlin, Panorama Bar.

Nark: What is the secret weapon track you plan to bring out tonight? Come on, dish.
Bicep: Probably our new track we did in collaboration with Simian Mobile Disco, you are gonna just have to come down if you wanna hear it.

Bicep deliver classic house, period. Here’s something to warm you up, unless you are taking their advice and taking a nap first.
