Bondax has such an eclectic, enigmatic sounds that it’s hard to shove it into a single category – they’re what you get if you fuse Disclosure and John Legend; hauntingly soulful and honest lyrics, strung along to a cacophony of rhythms. The group is comprised of George Townsend and Adam Kaye, a pair of wide eyed 18 year olds from Lancaster, England – but don’t let their age fool you: even though they’ve only been turning out the tunes since 2010, they’ve developed quite the mature sound for themselves. They meddling with elements of garage and 2-step basslines, and throw R&B infused vocals on top in beautiful dichotomy.
They first broke onto the scene with the sexy and vibrant remix to AlunaGeorge’s “You Know I Like It” and shortly after, released “It’s You” and “Baby I Got That”; the latter of which received remix duties from Dirtybird’s very own Justin Martin. “Gold”, their latest smash release, is heavily layered with the raspy, honest vocals over a downtempo garage beat; and it’s been garnering remixes and praise from every corner of the EDM world, from the sultry, subtle electro flavor of Shakehips to a deep, smooth and bouncy remix from MOON BOOTS. Hands down though, the grooviest remix comes from Manchester based DJ and producer Star Slinger. By raising the tempo and adding some kickin’ drum machines, he makes it near impossible to sit still.
