"Of all the electro pop artists lately , Dansette Junior seem the least contrived, and judging by â€˜Drums n Bassâ€˜, have the big songs too" - Steve Lamacq - Radio 1
The brainchild of singer/producer/songwriter Will Hunts alter ego Dansette Junior, was borne through a chance encounter on the â€™High Roadâ€˜, in the not so salubrious area of Kentish Town, North London, with like minded Johnny Mac(synth geekery n bass) and Graham Gaffney(drums n machines)
They seem to be three of Londonâ€™s hottest boys right now, - â€˜armed with synths and a cross between Damon Albarn and Calvin Harris style vocals (seriously)â€™ - London Lite, with their anarchic live shows, twisted comedy lyrics and sonic assault, that has since landed them with a recording deal with Columbia Records / Sony Music.
The record label was drawn to their unique sound through their first sonic offering 'Drums and Bass' which is fast becoming a cult classic, combining hypnotic comedy-sequence lyrics, analogue synths and computer geekery to create a unique blend of edgy electro pop.
This adventurous musical mix together with some highly-charged live shows across London, was noticed immediately by new fan and label-mate, dance pop superstar Calvin Harris, who invited Dansette Junior to support him on his arena tour during late 2009 in both UK and Europe.
Early 2010 has seen the trio holed up putting finishing touches to their debut album, with producers Dub n Segs(Chemical Bros/Alabama 3) taking charge, to make sense of this highly charged concoction, brewing for mass consumption later in 2010. realeditorbest profile toolsrealeditorbest profile tools
