“Warehouse Dayz” – Bachelors of Science (Horizons Music) [ALBUM] January 28, 2010Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
Hailing from San Francisco, California, Bachelors of Science are fast becoming one of the biggest acts in the electronica music scene. Their 2008 debut “Science Fiction” was released to critical and commercial acclaim, breaking into the iTunes dance chart and spending over 9 weeks in the DNBArena charts and won “Best Drum n Bass Track” at the 2009 Beatport Awards. The duo even featured on the soundtrack to the popular iPhone game “Tap Tap Revenge”.
Bachelors of Science are Phil “Rene” – a producer and classically trained musician born in New Zealand and raised in the UK – and Chris Doe – also from the UK, previously known for playing the hardcore and early jungle scene from 1991 – 1995. The duo met in California and soon set to work producing together, blending a unique mix of classical strings, rolling beats and soulful vocals. Their sound was soon hailed as “a refreshing musical approach to drum n bass and a return to the true sound of liquid funk”, and rapidly garnered airplay from the likes of LTJ Bukem, Basement Jaxx, Grooverider, Annie Mac, High Contrast, Doc Scott, Alix Perez, Makoto, State Of Mind, BigBud and L Double to name but a few.
“Warehouse Dayz” is Bachelors of Science’s second album, and a represents a significant direction change for the duo. For their sophomore outing they have raised the bar as an electronic music act, dipping into a wealth of seemingly disparate influences – from Lemon Jelly, Portishead, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Daft Punk, Mylo and the Prodigy to Debussy, Frank Sinatra and Hunter S. Thompson – and combining these various styles to edge outwards of the genre they’re best known for. The result is a record that delights both on the well worn boards of a smoky club or the dimly lit hues of your living room.
From the electro influenced “Lost Inside”, via the cheeky reggae vibes of “Red Stripe”, the drum and bass ballad “Can’t Let Go”, and the devastating “RipSaw” to the Burial tinged “Bombay Sapphire”, the Lindstrom inflected space-disco sounds of “Match Point” and the epic ‘amen break’ centred “The Rush”, the Bachelors of Science consistently surprise with a diverse palette of sounds, ensuring things never get stale.
