Despite growing up in the same picturesque village – Potten End (Herts) – Chris Davids and Liam Ivory aka Maribou State customarily ignored each other at school, but discovered their shared passion for music at university in Leeds and became firm friends.

Since then they have steadily built a glowing international reputation via a string of well-loved EPs and a fistful of remixes (including Kelis, Lana del Ray, Crookers, Kastle, Ultraísta) since 2011. Plaudits from the electronic press have flowed thick and fast alongside support from radio heavyweights: Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, B. Traits, Pete Tong and Gilles Peterson amongst others.

The past 18 months has been a glorious blur, with weekends dedicated to touring – the duo have zipped around UK, Europe, the US and Australia – whilst keeping a strict 9-to-5 work ethic in the studio during the week that has enabled them to record their finest work to date. It’s hard to pick out highlights, but Glastonbury, Warehouse Project and Bestival were particularly special milestones.

Intrigued by the dynamics of electronic music for the dancefloor as much as with the richness and human quality of live instrumentation and songcraft, they have worked tirelessly to evolve and forge a unique, compelling and deeply soulful marriage of the organic and the synthetic, showcased on their forthcoming debut album Portraits.
