Voyeur [UK]

Benson Herbert and Leo Picking are a young duo making big moves. They broke through in February 2012 with a captivating remix of Bombay Bicycle Club’s “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep” and have since gone on to play live in the Boiler Room, offer a mix to established online mag Dummy and play in the booth alongside greats like Kerri Chandler, Frankie Knuckles and Cassy.

House legend Kerri Chandler was so impressed with the duo that he snapped them up for his Madtech imprint in November last year. Releasing the pair’s debut single ‘Blame It on the Youth’ with a remix of his own, Chandler launched Voyeurto the next level. Ensuing months have seen people clamour to be heard playing music by the pair, including Radio 1 stars like Heidi and Annie Mac who have given them national exposure.

As DJs this duo weave their own sonic tapestries, calling on smoky deep house, physical tech and plenty of shades in between at venues all across the UK. They have been enlisted to warm up for choice selectors like Disclosure and Julio Bashmore and so it makes sense that Mixmag named them as 2013 stars to watch alongside peers like Krystal Klear, Ben Pearce and Casino Times. Having remixed the likes of Foals, Azari& III and Santigold to great acclaim, the world now awaits more original missives from this fast rising UK house duo, because they are only just getting started.
