They're hungry, they're reckless, they're taking the world by storm with their relentless love beats and fanatical siren songs, they are Azari & III and their medium is the message - free your spirit through raw ass dance music all night long!
The mysterious duo from the northern steppes of Canada started a fire burning with the brazen Hungry For The Power, a single released last fall that is continually blowing up with fans ranging from Annie Mac to Grizzly Bear, Boys Noize to Broken Social Scene. The follow up smash, Reckless (With Your Love), is currently serving up a dose of techno soul so addictively repeatable, you gotta be cautious or you'll get hooked.
With remixes for and by the likes of Health, Munk, Booka Shade, Le Le, Bot'ox, Ali Love, Sidwo? Nacho Lovers, Mano Le Tough, Runaway, Cosmo Vitelli and Mathias Aguayo, wait, lemme catch my breath...its only been 8 months but this outfit is outputting like a sweatshop in July! Let's hope they don't so quickly disappear into the strange abyss from which they came...but somehow I think there is a grander story unfolding here...
