How to make the sounds from Bicep 'Atlas' with DRC

Born in Belfast but launched in London, the electronic music duo ‘Bicep’ have been DJing and making music together since 2009.

A partnership of childhood friends Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson, Bicep’s online origin story has an oldskool element, in the form of the blog site 'Feel My Bicep', which was part of their early digital presence. It was here that Matt and Andy would share choice cuts of disco, house, techno, and other rarities that might otherwise go unnoticed or be forgotten and lost over time.

Alongside the blog (which is still active!), in 2010 they started to release tracks and EPs of their own music for a few different record labels, before creating their own, ‘Feel My Bicep’ in September 2012. This turned out to be a momentous couple of months for the pair, winning ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ at DJ Mag’s ‘Best of British Awards’, in the same year.

In 2017 they found a new home for their creative production talents, signing to the iconic Ninja Tune label, for the release of their eponymous debut album. This September release received rave reviews from both fans and critics, especially the popular lead single ‘Glue’, which achieved second place in Mixmag’s ‘100 Best Songs of 2017’.

Today we’re looking at the 2021 follow-up album ‘Isles’, as Lucas flexes his sound design muscles, armed with all the secrets to show you ‘How to make the sounds from Bicep - 'Atlas', with our one and only DRC - Polyphonic Synthesizer.
