  • "The guys at Music House are the best in the business.Their enthusiasm is addictive, their knowledge of front line club promotion has been honed over many many years and the coverage their campaigns afford our releases are an integral point to our successes. Every weekend we know someone new is hearing one of our tracks due to the care and attention they give".

  • I have used Euro Sulution exclusively for my bigger projects this year as I see a much better spread and activity than a normal DJs-only promo. Can definitely recommend them for top UK results and very detailed frequent reports on activity.

Home ft Aurora

Release date: TBC Label: FFRR



Bristol duo Icarus build upon the impact that they made with their first two FRRR releases – the ‘Don’t Cry Wolf’EP and ‘Ride This Train’ – with the release of the new track ‘Home’ which is out now. Their previous releases for the label sparked included blog love from Boiler RoomThump and Hunger, plus Radio 1 and 1Xtra plays from AnnieMacDanny HowardMonkiTarget,Pete TongPhil Taggart and Friction.

Featuring ethereal vocal atmospherics from Norwegian dream-pop artistAurora‘Home’ finds Icarus – brothersIan and Tom Griffiths – delivering a track that’s far more progressive than their recent releases. From its minimalist introduction to its doomy, synth-based breakdown to its climactic conclusion, Aurora’s vocals weave seamlessly into Icarus’s expansive soundscape.

In addition to their critical acclaim and radio support to date, Icarus concluded their debut UKtour last year with highlights including FabricThe Warehouse Project in Manchester and a homecoming set at Motion. Other stand-out sets included the Lovebox / SubSoul After Dark party and at Creamfields’ All Gone Pete Tong stage.

Having hit Ministry of Sound at the weekend for a Rinse bill headed by Kenny Dope, they’ll return to Fabric on March 4th in the SubSoul room.

Icarus’s continuing surfeit of ideas is unsurprising given their background. Both played in bands (Ian on guitar, and Tom on bass) prior to becoming enamoured with production and DJing whilst studying music. Tom’s musical interests evolved from alternative rock to a wide spectrum of dance music (DJ Zinc’s Bingo Beats to 31 Records). Ian, meanwhile, was consumed by his older brother’s mixtapes and drum ‘n’ bass auteur LTJ Bukem. Those early influences have evolved with further inspiration sourced from the soundtrack stylings of Cliff Martinez and Hans Zimmer.

On one hand, Icarus can create a pure dancefloor-orientated rush, but the core strength that’s innate throughout their emerging body of work is their ability to create songs with the immediacy to capture a wider audience without losing the essence of their grounding in club culture. With a far-reaching contemporary sound, their star is rising.
