Biography

Backini is the Marty McFly of the downtempo beat, his ever evolving sound distills a century of pop music into a seamless and satisfying whole. Building on the success of the debut “Threads”, Rob Quickenden now incorporates an energetic live extravaganza.

With his philosophy of anything goes, Backini has traded the well trodden route of sampling funk 45’s in favour of slipping between the sheets with the likes of the Andrews Sisters.

Weaving an elegant web of lush samples and sonics Backini manages to evoke images of 1940’s big bands, 50’s bebop and 70’s pop divas.The feelgood factor of his work is never far away, but there’s a distinctly ironic darkness to the overall vibe.

Backini has developed the sample-based sound of his debut album to incorporate rappers, guitarists, and the proverbial kitsch-in-sink, but keeps to his catchy, hummable manifesto.
