Dominic Maker and Kai Campos met at Southbank University in London where they started making music together at a home studio in Peckham. Arguably responsible for the term post-dubstep, the duo released their highly praised debut album Crooks & Lovers in 2010 as well as their 2013 record Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. The Guardian described the pair as ‘leading an exploratory breakaway from bass-heavy dubstep towards a lighter, hazier style of electronica rich with drowsy ambience and chopped-up found sounds.’ Wrestling with the complexities of living in London, the guys embrace their surroundings; ‘With all the good stuff that comes with being in a big city, there are also things that aren't so nice about it. I think it’s only right that the art that comes out is trying to have a conversation with that in some way.’ Our South London session of Home Recording, shot on a rooftop high above their corner of the Capital, is an upbeat performance combining the calming vocals of Campos with the dynamics of an electronic organ and subtle beat of the drums. Tune in and drift away.
