Creative head honchos, childhood friends, Belfast natives, and along with Rory Hamilton (Hammer) curators of easily one of the largest cult followed music repositories in club music history; to call the last few years of Matt McBriar and Andy Fergusson’s lives ‘strong’ would be nothing short of criminally underrated. In 2017 BICEP one of Ireland’s proudest contributions to the global music scene.
During the latter part of 2012, Bicep collaborated with Ejeca and Omar Odyssey for the You/Don’t EP on Will Saul and Fink’s Aus Records, and formed their own label, which shared the name of their blog, Feel My Bicep. The label’s first release, the duo’s “Vision of Love,” became a club hit, and was remixed by Detroit legend Carl Craig and released as a 12″ by Kevin Saunderson’s KMS label.
In 2017, Bicep signed to Ninja Tune and geared up for the release of their long-awaited debut full-length. Simply titled Bicep, it was preceded by the singles “Glue” and “Aura,” and arrived in September.
