Toxic hurricane sludge, endless war and the eternal question of what to do with one’s Saturday night when the world’s about to implode… Cubik and Origami mine these topics and more on Slept In On Doomsday, their forthcoming release on Dinner Party Records. Originally known for the slow-burning downtempo funk of their eponymous debut on Wide Hive Records, and an intricate beatbox/instrumental EP in 2007, the duo have since broadened their outlook, quilting electro, IDM and indie rock details into their earth-toned hip-hop tapestries. The resulting record, their most song-driven work to date, draws comparisons to such disparate acts as Four Tet, Danger Mouse and The Album Leaf.
Taking the material live, C&O employ turntables, vocals, drums, bass and electronics, bending the songs to their will and to the delight of dance floors and opium dens alike.
