Climbers is the Mexicali duo, Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal, who, despite forming just a year ago, have already been making serious waves around the world with a fresh-faced take on house music.
Their debut ‘Law Of Attraction’ EP on Culprit, as well as the slew of buzzworthy remixes for labels such as Lower East, Noir Music 2 and Electronique have already found their way into the crates of some of the hottest underground dance acts including Art Department, James Teej, My Favorite Robot Tanner Ross, Miguel Campbell, Catz n Dogz, Death on the Balcony and Richy Ahmed. ‘All Right’ from the Culprit EP has already been played on BBC Radio’s iconic Pete Tong show.
Though they come from different musical backgrounds, Blakk and Deal haven been friends since high-school. Early last year they finally decided to join forces to make music, and they haven’t looked back. 2012 will see further releases for Culprit, an EP on Nervous Records’ newly launched Nurvous imprint, plus a debut European tour.
Climbers’ are fast developing a signature sound: set to classic house percussions, empahitic electronic baselines, old school vocal sampling and atmospheric synth pads that are always pushing all the right buttons and are never less than memorable.
In addition Jay Blakk is the co-founder of Mexa Records along with Louie Fresco.
