James and Archie, both from London, met whilst DJing in Oxford back in 2011. Bonding over a shared love for a unique sound, they’ve since produced on various projects together, played around the world and released on some of dance music’s most respected labels.
Borne as a true passion project, My Friend hurtled onto the scene when their unsigned, unreleased tracks debuted on Danny Howard’s Radio 1 show as ‘Future Fire’ ones to watch in 2018. They have since brought their stimulating DJ sets to parties and festivals across the UK & Europe and performed live on Radio 1. 2021 has been an exciting start with releases on Anjunadeep, including their annual compilation Anjunadeep 12. Drawing inspiration from a juxtaposition of euphoric melodies and driving depth, their authentic sound blurs the lines of house, techno and progressive. With a solid upcoming release schedule & their debut release ’Solace’ surpassing 7 million plays on Spotify alone, the future looks bright for this dynamic duo.
