Belfast-born DJ and production duo Bicep ran a popular music blog and staged eclectic DJ sets before gaining critical acclaim for their genre-blurring original music.
• Matt McBriar and Andrew Ferguson met while playing rugby when they were eight. They started Bicep in 2009 after McBriar and Ferguson had established successful careers in design and advertising, respectively.
• Before they got started DJing, they made their name by running the blog Feel My Bicep, which collected rare house, disco, and techno tunes.
• The duo released about 10 EPs between 2010 and 2017, but it was their self-titled 2017 debut album that catapulted them to stardom. Bicep peaked at No. 20 on the UK albums chart.
• Bicep’s 2021 sophomore album, Isles, charted in at least nine countries, including the UK, where it reached No. 2.
• The duo was nominated for Best British Group and Breakthrough Artist at the 2021 BRIT Awards.
• They host FeelMyBicep Radio on Apple Music 1.
