Thunderheist - Nothing To Step To
(12"/Download) Big Dada BD129, 2009-05-15

Grahm and Isis began Thunderheist as a project to throw a wrench into static hip hop conventions and explore their love for the dancefloor. They are far more than an electrorap act grounded in rap, bass, and electro, but are also entrenched in disco, funk and R&B, crafting their own, brand new definition of future pop music. More than anything, there's something infectiously unpretentious and genuine about Thunderheist. They like going out and having a good time and have made the records to reflect this - party music for people who really like partying (and if you doubt it, check the YouTube footage of their guerrila gig outside Cargo when they were in the UK last December).

Press Release :
'Nothing2Step2' is a bonafide electronic pop anthem that vocalist Isis -her tongue only half in her cheek - refers to as her "Madonna moment." Over another chunk of hugely muscular, hugely emotive electronic dance music from producer Grahmzilla, Isis shows -having proved she can rap fast and slow, soft and loud -that she can really sing, too. As the bass lines swoop up and up, Isis delivers a classic love song -full of rejection and disappointment but also the strength to carry on. It's a superb performance which shows why Thunderheist are more than 'just' a club act (though this is going to work on the dancfloor, too)

Already being played by the likes of Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Annie Nightingale on Radio 1, huge on Myspace, loved by Pitchfork and Vice as well as Elton John (actually we made that shit up), 2009 is set to be a thunderous-ass year for them. Thunderheist is gaining speed and bandwidth, one byte per second, and heading straight for tera status. Get ready.

"A booty-electro party-rap machine of frightening efficiency." -Dazed & Confused
"A superb power pack of crunked-up, fidgety hip house. Best believe they'll be stealing everyone's thunder in '09" -DJ
