Over the years the pair have released a trail of mixes and EP’s including their highly acclaimed first EP Supermodel released on Voidcom. Since then, Chopstick & Johnjon have established their own successful label Suol, including artists such as Daniel Bortz, Till von Sein, Trickski, Tender Games, Meggy and Fritz Kalkbrenner.
Twelve incorporates the ever-changing winds of house music and Chopstick & Johnjon’s vibrant storytelling ability. Focusing on skilful productions over simply fixating on maximum floor effect, the album journeys through melodies to heavy beats.
The vocals are provided by Chris James, a London-based singer and musician, who often release music with his band Stateless on !K7 and Ninja Tune.
From the first single release Pining Moon, showcasing their instrumental music inclinations, it shows the pairs move to more organic, slower sounds. The album also features a co-production from Tanner Ross, a member of the Crew Love family, with the track Twisted.
The album beautifully underpins everything that Chopstick & Johnjon are all about.
