Following their first single release ‘Matthew and Toby’ on Kieran Hebden’s ‘Text’ label in 2010, London-based brothers Ben (keyboards) and Tom Page (drums) aka Rocketnumbernine released their followup EP ‘The Lone Raver’ on Soul Jazz Records in November 2011.
Having toured and performed alongside Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) throughout 2010, Gilles Peterson gave the band wider recognition with a live session on his Radio One show, as well as a performance at Gilles’ Worldwide Awards.
More recently, after jaw-dropping performances in Fabric’s Room One, the duo took their intense electronic music to New York’s Roseland Ballroom to support the most recent fans of the group Radiohead in September 2011.
With a Floating Points-produced Four Tet collaboration set for release on Text in January, followed by a much-anticipated album on Smalltown Supersound in the Spring, 2013 is set to be a big year.
