New Bears: John Wizards Remix, Rinse FM…

artistprofile_2bears

Ahead of proper 2 Bears album news in the New Year, Joe and Raf have been busying themselves with a bit of on air DJing and a couple of remixes. First up, they stepped back into the Rinse studio this week for a show on Tuesday night. There’s a podcast version of it online here. Remix wise, there are reworks of Tookah, the title track off the last Emiliana Torrini album and of
the brilliant new John Wizards’ single Muizenberg (if you’ve not heard the LP, it’s a blinder). More news coming soon.
