Hertfordshire-based producers Ken Petalcorin and Andy Bowden, collectively known as Tibasko setting their sights to bring their grooves into dance floors across the UK. While still only in their early stages having formed in 2017, they have already carved their own mark into the music scene, finding their unique sound in complex melodic patterns, prolific sampling, twisted drums and underground beats.
Their notable style is also reflected within their DJ sets, where their love for African and Brazilian grooves keep the crowd alive. This is inspired by the pair’s affinity for crate digging, which results in the finest selection of disco, techno and deep house tracks. This ability to showcase the best of hidden gems across various genres showcases Ken and Andy’s venerable approach to their DJ sets, showing strong potential as party curators.
They have already secured an impressive number of big events and shows, such as El Dorado Festival, Percolate, Regression Sessions, Made Festival, Starworks Warehouse, Seedy Sonics, and Pro-ject Worcester, across the UK. This includes sharing the stage alongside a range of huge names within the industry: Solardo, Lauren Lo Sung, Laurence Guy, Waze & Odyssey, Honey Dijon, Denis Sulta, Latmun and more. They also hold a residency with eclectic groove and party makers, No Particular Order.
Their signature tribal sound is culminated by mixture of distorted worldly percussions and natural sounding synths together. They have a few original tracks released on notable record labels, including Smiley Fingers, Open House Records, No Particular Order and their own unique imprint, Omusaré Records. Their tracks have already received support from a range of prominent DJs in the electronic music scene, including Hammer, Loods, Krywald & Farrer and more. Their prowess to produce music is seen in the slew of successful releases, including their debut EP, ‘Alma’, garnering over 300,000 Spotify streams, peaking at number 11 in the Beatport Deep House charts and charted at 89 in the overall Beatport Top 100 Charts.
