Jack Wyllie and Duncan Bellamy both play in the Mercury-nominated Portico Quartet and Circle Traps is the result of their collaboration with friend Will Ward whose East London studio is the focal point for the trio’s productions.
Wiring their own instrumental skills on drums, saxophone, bass, flute, keys and guitar to samplers and buoyed by a love of everything from minimalism to jungle, from Joy Division to World music, Circle Traps have arrived at a sound that marries the brittle romantic textures of Bjork’s Vespertine to the glacial atmospherics of Thomas Köner to more fluid jazz-like explorations of rhythm.
