Climbers is the Mexicali duo, Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal, who,despite forming just a year ago, have already been making serious waves aroundthe world with a fresh-faced take on house music.
Their debut ‘Law Of Attraction’ EP on Culprit, as well as the slew ofbuzzworthy remixes for labels such as Lower East, Noir Music 2 and Electroniquehave already found their way into the crates of some of the
hottest underground dance acts including ArtDepartment, James Teej, My Favorite Robot Tanner Ross, Miguel Campbell, Catz nDogz, Death on the Balcony and Richy Ahmed. ‘All Right’ from the Culprit EP hasalready been played on BBC Radio’s iconic Pete Tong show.
Though they come from different musical backgrounds, Blakk and Deal haven beenfriends since high-school. Early last year they finally decided to join forcesto make music, and they haven’t looked back. 2012 will see further releases forCulprit, an EP on Nervous Records’ newly launched Nurvous imprint, plus a debutEuropean tour.
Climbers’ are fast developing a signature sound: set to classic housepercussions, empahitic electronic baselines, old school vocal sampling andatmospheric synth pads that are always pushing all the right buttons and arenever less than memorable.
In addition Jay Blakk is the co-founder of Mexa Records along with LouieFresco.
