The Allergies (Goodgroove Records)
The Allergies is the throwback funk and boom bap production/DJ outfit from heavyweight disc jocks Rackabeat (Chai Wallahs) and DJ Moneyshot (Solid Steel).
Drawing on the sound of vintage samples, hip-hop and classic breaks, the pair have been getting heavy props since their debut Heartbreaker EP topped download charts at the start of 2013.
BBC radio legends like Rob Da Bank and Craig Charles are fans, and DJs like Yoda, Kenny Dope and Format joined the ranks of the great and good who’ve already caught the bug for The Allergies infectious beats.
DJs themselves first and foremost, The Allergies are guaranteed to bring that party-rocking vibe live on two turntables. Anyone who caught them at Bestival, Boomtown or Fusion Festival in Germany will testify to that.
2014 sees a shift to new home, Goodgroove Records. The Calling The Shots EP is out now, and features rappers Figure of Speech and Skunkadelic, as well as the KPS Horns and blues guitarist legend, John Fairhurst.
