Faze Action Are Coming To Mi-SoulThis coming Monday 19th May, Marcia Carr will have two special guests on her Mixed Bag Show. Disco/deep House duo Faze Action will be in the studio to talk about their EP ‘Body Of One’ and their new album project. A mainstay of the House and Disco scene, Faze Action’s career until now has been hugely successful so there will more than likely be some good stories for them to recount, as well as a deep discussion of all things music. Get locked in to hear Marcia and the boys get chatty.

BioFaze Action have spent over a decade refining their signature lyrical and musical style. Their devotion to delivering tracks with both depth and accessibility has earned them the love of loyal and new fans around the world.Despite their dexterous multi genre skills, the duo are best known for disco – the ever-evolving sound at the heart of everything they do. Added to that is a mixture of elements ranging from classical, Latin, jazz and house music – a combo which has kept the forward-thinking brothers ahead of the curve.Way before the rise to prominence of Hercules & Love Affair, Horse Meat Disco, Lindstrom, Todd Terje, Prins Thomas, Metro Area, LCD Soundsystem and DFA, Faze Action spearheaded the first disco revival and have remained hugely-respected figures on the worldwide scene ever since, for their productions, plus joyous live gigs and DJ sets.A staple of many A-list DJs set-list over the years, fans of Faze Action include Andy Weatherall, Gilles Peterson, DJ Harvey, Tim Sweeney, Horse Meat Disco, Todd Terje, Prins Thomas, Carl Craig, Psychemajik and Jarvis Cocker.They’ve released four critically-acclaimed albums and countless remixes for artists as varied as Femi Kuti, Francois Kevorkian, Odyssey, Metronomy, Crazy P, Bebel Gilberto, Kim Ann Foxman and Saint Etienne.During their tenure as flagship act on the feted Nuphonic label, it was Faze Action’s second release, the much-lauded classic ‘In the Trees’ that cemented their position as high-caliber dancefloor innovators. The track enjoyed a renaissance when reworked by one Carl Craig, who was specially commissioned to celebrate Juno records 10th anniversary, following a vote by Juno staff on which track they would most like to see remixed by the Detroit pioneer.And much like Mr. Craig, it’s their unique knack for taking special styles from the past and reinventing, rejuvenating and reworking them into fresh new forms for future generations, that has ensured their lasting appeal, continued relevance, and position at the forefront of the dance music pantheon – on stage, on the turntables and on record.
