Riktam & Bansi
Label: Iboga Records
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 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. Riktam & Bansi's 'Green Space' was their debut release as this project and reached number 2 in the Top Download charts at Beatport, while simultaniously dominating the Prog House charts with 4 tracks in the Top Ten at the same time, including a number 1 placement which was held over many months. Riktam & Bansi scored one of the biggest progressive house tracks of that year and since then all of their releases are 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.
