The 2 Bears

Cuddly house bandits

This two-man collaboration can be introduced, neatly as, a bear hug in sonic form. It's warm house music, with big soulful ideas that can leave you emotionally winded in the most pleasant of ways.


Working their native London scene since 2009 these two bears have been so busy they only found time to release their debut single in June this year, getting love from a spectrum of radio personalities: Fearne Cotton, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens to name just three.


Joe Goddard should be familiar to you as the fun face of Hot Chip, whilst his other furry half is Ministry of Sound radio host and promoter, DJ Raf Daddy, or Rundell to his friends.


It's a project born, from all accounts, by cheeky irreverence and mutual convenience. Their best sounds will feature on debut 'Be Strong' due in January 2012, sure to be stronger than strong.
