While Dan jams out to sequenced beats and collected samples on his retro analogue synthesizers, Em spends her time shooting and cutting visual material- everything from found footage to original celluloid shot in vintage cameras- scratched, manipulated and projected. With beats ranging from dub through to dancehall and drum n bass, the instrumental arrangements seek to inspire the imagination and create a timeless sound complemented by tightly edited visuals. Drawing from Dan’s roots in old-school funk and inspired by more recent luminaries such as LTJ Bukem, Adam F, DJ Shadow and London Elektricity, the Supermarket experience strives to be food for the soul and a feast for the senses.
