As long-time residents of the weird and always unexpected city of San Francisco, Bachelors Of Science are renowned for mixing up and making unique blends of laid back, tripped-out, soul drenched tracks that are designed to be listened to as well as just heard on the floor. Choosing quality over quantity, they are regarded as one of the most consistently innovative and sought-after remixers and producers of the area, working with everyone from dance music legends Groove Armada, Justin Martin and Paradox to indie darlings Home Video and Silver Swans.
With their own productions the Bachelors continue to defy those that try to categorize them into a single genre. From the deep liquid over to the harder dance floor sounds of DnB, to the more minimal inspired halfstep 170 vibes and even sun-drenched 4/4 grooves … the Bachelors have retained their quality and a large and loyal following throughout. Garnering DJ support from Annie Mac, Alix Perez, S.P.Y, T.E.E.D. (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs), DJ Marky, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Spectrasoul, Mutated Forms, Storm, Loxy, Doc Scott, DJ Hype, Grooverider, Basement Jaxx, Claude von Stroke, Skrillex and many more.
Their debut album “Science Fiction” released in 2008 to critical and commercial acclaim, became one of the top selling drum n bass albums of all time, with “Song For Lovers” and “The Ice Dance” becoming liquid drum n bass anthems and the Apex remix of “Strings Track” eventually winning “Best Drum n Bass Track” at the 2009 Beatport Awards. More recent remixes of The XX, Disclosure, Home Video, Death Cab For Cutie, Groove Armada and Seasick Steve have won praise across the music blogoshpere, placing them atop the Hype Machine chart for weeks in a row.
The Bachelors’ DnB remix of Justin Martin’s “Ghettos & Gardens” reached the top of the DnB charts and quickly became a DirtyBird summer anthem getting dropped all over the world and was later selected and played by Skrillex on his seminal BBC Essential mix as well as on the Diplo & Friends BBC 1xtra program.
On stage BoS bring an energy and vibe that is all their own and matched by none. Having performed across North America to Fabric and all over Europe alongside acts as diverse as Pendulum, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Kode9, Photek and even Elvis Costello, the guys take a crowd on a journey with everything from originals and bootlegs to custom edits of cutting edge tracks and past future classics.
