Codcast number three from Heaven 17’s nephews, Hiem aka Nick “Nico” Eastwood and David “Bozz” Boswell! I’ll let them rant this time ‘cos they’re big lads from up North.
…Rising from the ashes like a mechanical wasp, those two Sheffield musical adventurers have been once again tinkering their bleeps ,synths and buggering their old machines back to life, Bozzwell has been soloing and making records over in Germany with Firm records from Cologne, and to the boot scoring a superb debut long player from the label last year to a global critical acclaim.
Hiem have never been ones to play ball , whether its a strange tale of northern life, over a barrage of bleeping synths and breakneck drums or a disco groove
with Bozzwell’s falsetto Prince-ing over the top, ever the unpredictable seems to be their motto and stance, with a full length “Escape from Division Street “ on the way in April 2011, on which they collaborate with Roots Manuva and Phil Oakey. The first single from the forthcoming album is a Sparks influenced number called “Freaky Nights” which will also drop as a single with remixes from Darabi, Tim Paris and Kompakt’s Shumi!
