8:30 - 10:00 - BONDAX
Barely two years ago, Bondax were trapped in limbo. Adam Kaye and George Townsend had shot from schoolmates to a worldwide touring act soon after signing their first record deal aged 17. Early singles ‘Gold’, ‘All I See’ and ‘Giving It All’ brought them radio hits, festival slots and tours in the UK and around the world. But soon after, they hit a hurdle. Locked into a major label deal, their heads buzzing with ideas they couldn’t bring to life, Bondax had thoughts of change, and even packing it all in, after too many nights on tour and half a lifetime of living in each other’s pockets.
Instead, they took a leap of faith and started all over again – and the result is Revolve, a radical makeover and a glittering calling card for two young producers who’ve truly hit their stride. Ambitious, eclectic and irresistibly tuneful, their debut album is a heartfelt homage to the music that made them and the world they’ve discovered since their breakout success.
Bringing their transformation full circle, Bondax have set up a their own record label to release Revolve. The freshly launched Recur Recordings will also release music from their circle of talented friends. Meanwhile, the Recur podcast continues to dig into the duo’s ever-expanding record collection, giving them a chance to play the records they love which don’t fit in their club sets.
Revolve is the 180-degree turn that has allowed Bondax to make music that’s true to their passions and their evolving songcraft. It’s also their graduation, as they drift away from the dance past and take a leap into the unknown. Looking back on the last six years, says George, “it was just a fight to grow up.”
