Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
From humble beginnings with analog samplers, crates of vinyl and an addiction to early 90′s instrumental hip hop the musical duo of Blunt Instrument was born.
In 2012 their remix of DJ Shadow’s ‘Scale it Back’ gained huge support worldwide with DJ Shadow saying ”Bonkers stuff, an exhibition of skills so impressive that it made me laugh out loud on first listen. If you’re not nodding your head emphatically by the second drop, you might want to take up lawn bowling. Big, bad beats galore. It’s obvious that Blunt Instrument will be a force to be reckoned with on a large scale very, very soon.”
Blunt Instrument tracks are featured on countless mixtapes and dj sets, including Ninja Tunes’ Solid Steel podcast and have gained international support across the globe, from tiny Brisbane bars to large international festivals such as Burning Man, Shambhala and Coachella (check the vid of DJ Shadow rocking the main stage with The Pocket http://youtu.be/pnDVI_lJVLM?t=4m22s).
With a unique live show that combines hip hop and cutting edge original dance music into a bass heavy dancefloor sound the duo are constantly pushing forward in new directions. Searching for the most innovative techniques and unique sounds, Blunt Instrument explore new and adventurous ways to get the dancefloor moving.
