Live at Sónar 2012
Recorded at Sónar in Barcelona Spain
London United Kingdom
Hot, hotter, Hot Chip! The UK’s smartest band in electronic dance music drop their postmodern pop live on stage at Sónar 2012.
Hailing from London, _(artist-name)Hot Chip_ entered the picture with the release of their 2000 debut _(album-title)Mexico_. Dubbed as the UK’s “most inventive band”, _(artist-name)Joe Goddard_, _(artist-name)Alexis Taylor_ and their bandmates construct their playful pop from excursions into sun-dapped folk, skewed hip hop, dreamy disco and mad, slow techno. Like an update to their kindred spirits _(artist-name)New Order_ and as unique as them, they have built a place in music over the course of their career. With releases on Moshi Moshi, DFA, EMI and Domino, their label history is as varied as their output, where a keen eye for what works on the dancefloor will never get in the way of a good hook. Add proven DJ skills by just about all members of the group, and side projects like Goddard’s _(artist-name)The 2 Bears_, and you have the picture of a gentle giant at the core of the musical universe.
