It’s surely a sign of times that Lynx & Kemo had made three tracks together before they had even met in person. Nowadays this sort of thing is referred to as a “mySpace success story”: sending each other messages and file transfers over the net is par for the course nowadays. With neither of them hailing from what one might call clubbing Meccas – Portsmouth and Dusseldorf via Hawaii respectively – it’s easy to understand how their music isn’t overly influenced by the mainstream. 2007 and Lynx & Kemo’s first release Global Enemies saw its release on Soul:r to accolades by the scene’s top DJs. Closely followed by the equally impressive Carnivale later in 2007 it firmly cemented Lynx & Kemo as the most exciting and original D&B acts to surface in years.

As a producer, Lynx has established a reputation for his technical ability and his innovation. Soul:r, Creative Source, Digital Soundboy and Bingo are just some of the leading labels he’s released on and are proof that his sound is not only fresh but diverse. With massive tracks including Disco Dodo and Global Enemies already under his belt, Lynx has clearly demonstrated he’s not afraid to break the mould whilst staying true to his own style.

Kemo’s global upbringing has allowed him to absorb to a wide variety of cultures and experiences, a fact that is clearly reflected in his musical work: The last 2 years have seen Kemo releases on such diverse labels as Soul:r, Digital Soundboy, Unique, Combination Records, Edel, Etage noir and Lebensfreude. Douglas Greed and Kemo released their first Single Deadlines in 2008, which was championed by the likes of Laurent Garnier. Zed Bias also features Kemo on his infamous Biaspheres Series and the duo continue their experimentation in sound together.

Lynx & Kemo are innovators in the truest sense of the word, pioneering soulful club music through a mix of orchestral composition and innovative songwriting. The Raw Truth is an album resplendent with influences, combining Hip Hop, Soul, Dubstep and Downtempo, while staying undeniably rooted in its drum and bass roots. Each track possesses subtle detail that guarantees longevity, ensuring there is something new to discover on each re-listen; songs are reduced to their very essence, emphasizing as much the space in-between the music as the music itself.
