It somehow found its way from the bedroom to international acclaim, casually picking up a Mercury nomination along the way. Developing into a festival crushing live proposition, wowing fans and critics alike from Seoul to Sydney to Sao Paolo, and having over the course of their subsequent albums collaborated with the likes of Bethany Cosentino, Chuck D and Deerhoof.
The Go! Team have always been cheerleaders for a better world – an outpouring of collective joy in the face of small-mindedness and dismal careerism. They rejoice in the unifying urges and the chance encounters between cultures that lead to something new. They’re a band who still have faith in the power of music to make things better. Now more than ever, we need The Go! Team.
With brand new album Semicircle released earlier this year and picking up rave notices, The Go! Team are once again on the move. A guaranteed festival highlight.
The Correspondents consist of a singer Mr Bruce and a producer Chucks. Both growing up in South London, they formed in 2007 and within two years had taken their hi-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.
The show that quickly established the duo as one of the best live acts in the UK has Mr Bruce assuming the look of a monochrome matador, singing with force, scatting at speed and dancing like his life depends on it while Chucks takes the audience on a journey through a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to the nether regions of electro and drum ‘n’ bass.
