No Artificial Colours

Fresh faced duo No Artificial Colours have been a dominant force on Londons underground house music scene ever since they teamed up several years ago, bringing their soulful, groove driven sound to virtually every notable club in the capital, including Ministry Of Sound, matter, Brixton Academy, Koko, Egg and Cable, and festivals including Glastonbury and SW4.

AKA Ryan Ellis (23) and Lewis Wright (26), the boys met when they kept finding themselves booked at the same gigs, and when they often got asked by promoters if they could play back-to-back, the pairing made perfect sense. They soon discovered a shared taste not just in musical style but also in making their sets varied and frenzied. “It’s taken a few years” says Lewis “but we’ve really found our sound now. Although the underlining feel is deep, groovy, hypnotic house, we always elaborate by incorporating acapellas, loops, sound shots and one hits.”

In terms of production, their work has quickly been noticed by the biggest names in the industry. No Artificial Colours’ debut EP, ’Welcome To The Jungle’, dropped in Spring 2011, and dance floor killer ‘Detroit Baby What’ gained instant support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Maya Jane Coles and Visionquest, and instantly shot to Beatport’s top 20 for Tech House. The anthem could be heard all summer on the worlds most iconic dance floors, including Ushuaia (Ibiza), DC10 (Ibiza), Space (Ibiza) and the Full Moon DJ Festival (Jesolo, Italy). Not bad for your first EP.

Above all, the boys quick rise through the ranks of the UK’s house music scene is probably down to the unique atmosphere they build in their technically accomplished DJ sets. These skills have seen them booked alongside some of the biggest names in the industry in recent months, including gigs with Nick Curly, Lee Foss, MANIK, Subb-an, Jordan Peak and Russ Yallop, in venues up and down the UK and across Europe.
