BACHELORS of SCIENCE
As long-time residents of the weird and always unexpected city of San Francisco, Bachelors Of Science are renowned for mixing up and making unique blends of laid back, tripped-out, soul drenched tracks that are designed to be listened to as well as just heard on the floor. Choosing quality over quantity, they are regarded as one of the most consistently innovative and sought-after remixers and producers of the area, working with everyone from dance music legends Groove Armada and Paradox to indie darlings Home Video and Silver Swans.
With their own productions, the Bachelors continue to defy those that try to categorize them into a genre. From the deep liquid drum n bass inspired by their hometown of London and the likes of High Contrast and LTJ Bukem to the minimal inspired Autonomic sounds of dBridge and sun-drenched 4/4 grooves inspired by fellow SF locals Dirtybird … the Bachelors have retained their quality and a large and loyal following throughout, garnering plays from Annie Mac, Basement Jaxx, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Loxy, Doc Scott, DJ Hype, Reid Speed, Alix Perez, Grooverider and DJ Marky.
Their debut album “Science Fiction” released in 2008 to critical and commercial acclaim, became one of the top selling drum n bass albums of all time, with “Song For Lovers” and “The Ice Dance” becoming liquid drum n bass anthems and the Apex remix of “Strings Track” eventually winning “Best Drum n Bass Track” at the 2009 Beatport Awards. More recent remixes of The XX, Home Video, Death Cab For Cutie, Groove Armada and Seasick Steve have won praise across the music blogoshpere, placing them atop the Hype Machine chart for weeks in a row.
On stage, the tales of the “full Bachelors Of Science set” are the stuff of legend. Having performed alongside acts as diverse as Pendulum, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Kode9, Photek and even Elvis Costello, the guys take a crowd on a journey with everything from BoS originals and bootlegs to custom edits of cutting edge tracks and past future classics … making d&b guys admit they’ve got a soft spot for 4/4, and house lovin girls admit they miss drum n bass.
