FICTION FRIDAYS : International Edition : Riktam & Bansi

This week Fiction Fridays unleashes another extra special line-up for Cape Town’s underground generation with international legends Riktam & Bansi [Spain] If past Fiction Fridays are anything to go by you’re in for one debaucherous night of melodic mayhem!!

♦♦♦ Riktam & Bansi [Holland] ♦♦♦

Riktam & Bansi have come to be known under a variety of monikers over the last decade, having achieved their greatest success so far under their Growling Mad Scientists [GMS] project, with a total of eight artist albums, tracks appearing on over 150 releases and more than 200,000 album sales, their studio wizardry is unquestionable.

Normally known for a more driving sound, the “Riktam & Bansi” project sees them embark in a different direction, towards a style which encompasses a slower more groove-oriented techno backbone. While retaining all of their flavor for the dancefloor, their productions as Riktam & Bansi show the breadth and diversity of their studio skills, without losing any of their unique take on melody or sound construction.

Beatport newcomers Riktam & Bansi seemingly have scored one of the biggest progressive house tracks of the year: GREEN SPACE!

Riktam & Bansi’s ‘Green Space’ was their debut release as this project and reaching number 2 in the Top Download charts at Beatport while simultaniously dominating the Beatport Prog House charts with 4 tracks in the Top Ten, including a number 1 placement held over months, and their releases are already receiving huge support from respected artists like Moguai, Nick Warren, Groove Armada, Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz, Amo & Navas and D-Nox to name only a few.

Each week a new illustration captures the essence of a character from fiction or popular culture in a few bold colours and basic strokes, with the Fiction logoshape integrated into the design. Some characters will be easy to identify, some not, depending on which of them you grew up with. These posters will form part of a collectable series and will later be offered as limited edition prints.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
