ARTIST / BAND: Relation
Relation - Optimistic - Urban Torque® by Urban Torque®
FILE UNDER: Electro / Indie / Techno
LABEL: Urban Torque
INFO: Relation are Andy Leary and Oliver Keech. They first met through a mutual friend at their local sixth form college in Essex. Both played and sang in separate guitar bands, Oli in the popular beat combo The Wayfarers (then known as Crayola) and Andy in a band called Velcro. A couple of years later Andy headed to university in Sheffield and, possibly due to his increasing preference for techno and house music, Velcro called it a day shortly after he completed his course. Andy then moved to London, bought a second-hand computer and some synths. Inspired by Jeff Mills, Carl Craig and Orbital, he set about composing melodic techno pieces.
