For 6 years brother duo ROCKETNUMBERNINE have been honing their unique sound. Starting off as an improv duo for the first 4 years, they decided to cross the sound over and turned heads very quickly – including those of the legendary Kieran Hebden Aka Four Tet and Gilles Peterson. The last 12 months has seen them record a session for Gilles at Radio 1 and perform at The BBC Worldwide Awards Ceromony, tour with both Four Tet and Caribou and perform in collaboration with Four Tet at The Mutek Festival in Montreal. Their first single released on Kieran’s Text label – a 14 minute opus laid down in one take with no overdubs was greatly received.
Now to 2011, having already opened for Radiohead in NYC with Fourtet, at the request of Thom Yorke himself. November 7th sees them release their next single with Soul Jazz – 3 self produced tracks, again one takes with no overdubs…ready to cross over into the clubs. This is their drum heavy, electronic intensity in full flow and 2012 will no doubt see RocketNumberNine destined for bigger things
