Having donated a generous sum to CALM, Electro duo STILLS are the winners of a charity Twitter auction for a Secret Garden Party 2013 DJ slot at Eddy Temple-Morris’ Temple Of Boom stage at 2pm on Friday . Here’s a little bit more about them…
STILLS got together in 2011 at a party at Saint Martins college of Art. Tired of the endless stream of guitar bands he had been playing in, Felix decided to form a hybrid of his influences. Free of the constraints of typical band line ups, and now free to concentrate on his array of analogue synths, STILLS became a mash up of different parts. Think: Hurts meets Bat For Lashes meets Massive Attack meets Deadmous5 meets Magnetic Man. That’s one hell of a party!
Andree had been studying at St Martins alongside Tom Vek and developed her song writing talents to fit Felix’s musicianship and production skills.
Starting as they meant to go on, so STILLS where fortunate enough to have their first track, UR Mine, remixed by non other than dance music dons Groove Armada.
Following this, Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay offered up a second remix of UR Mine.
This led to initial conversations with the Insanity group (who broke and managed DJ Fresh) which in turn led to STILLS next track RAIN featuring backing vocals by Saint Saviour (AEG / Groove Armada – Paper Romance).
