4-Track debut EP "Days Go On" from electronic dance trio Substatic
After months in the studio recording, programming and fine tuning, the long awaited debut by Substatic is finally ready for release.
Substatic, an alternative-electronic band hailing from Bristol, have built up a reputation as one of the most exciting, dynamic and engaging acts to come out of the city with their own unique take on today’s dance/electro scene.
Producers Steve Markovits and Alex Holmes have taken influences from electronic pioneers such as Orbital and Justice, to infuse gritty breaks with deep, resonating basses to ensure maximum impact on the dancefloor. Combined with the vibrant and sultry vocals of Colleen Quinn they deliver a bold and captivating performance, creating a buzz based on word of mouth gleaned from their electric live shows.
The last summer saw the bands’ UK festival debuts, playing The Isle of Wight and V Festivals and headlining in their hometown for Bristol Festival and The Harbourside Fringe.
They have seen remixes championed by the likes of Pete Tong, DJ Food & DK and the Ninja Tune Solid Steel Radio Show. Their EP has received airtime across Europe on several national radio stations, such as BBC Introducing and BBC 6Music with Tom Robinson, even before its actual release.
Substatic have performed with Kosheen, Dub Pistols, High Contrast, Handsome Furs, The Rumble Strips, Two Door Cinema Club, Micachu & Ninja tune's Daedelus.
