Climbers is the Mexicali duo, Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal, who, despite forming just over a year ago, have already been making serious waves around the world with a fresh-faced take on house music.
Their debut ‘Law Of Attraction’ EP on Culprit in early 2012, as well as the slew of buzz-worthy remixes for labels such as Lower East, Noir Music 2 and Electronique have already found their way into the crates of some of the hottest underground dance acts including Art Department, James Teej, My Favorite Robot Tanner Ross, Miguel Campbell, Catz n Dogz, Death on the Balcony and Richy Ahmed. ‘All Right’ from the Culprit EP has already been played on BBC Radio’s iconic Pete Tong show.
Though they come from different musical backgrounds, Blakk and Deal haven been friends since high school. Early last year they finally decided to join forces to make music, and they haven’t looked back. 2012 has been a big year for the boys, that of which helped them see their first UK / Europe tour from June – August, Top 10 charting tracks from their Get Physical release, and a remix for Warner UK. 2013 will up the ante as the boys return to Europe and many other parts of the world with a fresh arsenal of new original tracks and collaborations.
Climbers are fast developing a signature sound: set to classic house percussions, emphatic electronic bass lines, old school vocal sampling and atmospheric synth pads that are always pushing all the right buttons and are never less than memorable.
