Spybar welcomes Calyx & Teebee with Mega Mike and Alcove.
646 N. Franklin St.
For two decades, Calyx & TeeBeehave forged an unprecedented path at the forefront of Drum and Bass. They had already amassed an astounding back-catalogue spanning all of the genre’s seminal labels, before they came together to form a duo 12 years ago.
After becoming a permanent duet, Calyx & TeeBee launched Momentum Music, which marked its first release with their debut long player. The ‘Anatomy’ LP proved to be one of the most highly anticipated albums in D&B for years, gaining massive support from the scene’s big players and topping sales charts for months. ‘Anatomy’ proved to be a game changer, and following its release Calyx & TeeBee embarked on several unrelenting tours across the globe, venturing into joint DJ sets featuring 6 decks and 3 mixers with both DJs in action simultaneously. Meanwhile the duo started to lay groundwork for their follow-up LP which they dedicated five years to complete.
In 2012, Calyx & TeeBee signed to Ram Records, arguably the biggest and most respected drum & bass label in the world and a leading light in the multi-genre bass music scene. Featuring stunning collaborations with Beardyman and Foreign Beggars and the first of many tracks featuring Calyx’s previously undiscovered voice, the pair released a succession of chart-topping singles that led up to the award winning LP ‘All Or Nothing’. The pair achieved unprecedented success with the album; sweeping awards for ‘Best Single’ with ‘Elevate This Sound’, ‘Best Video’ with ‘Pure Gold, ‘Best LP’ & ‘Best Producer’. A near-constant run of radio plays led to the duo being asked to do a BBC Essential Mix – a true hall-of-fame moment for any artist in any genre. To top off the year, their mix was then voted as one of the five nominees for ‘Essential Mix of the year’.
Despite a never-ending tour schedule, there was no let up in their productivity and musical output. When they weren’t working on their next LP, the pair were in constant demand from a glittering and eclectic array of artists outside the genre: all seeking the Calyx & TeeBeeremix treatment. From Rag ’n’ Bone Man to Rudimental, from Ed Sheeran to Example, Wizz Khalifa, DJ Shadow, Little Dragon; their sound and reputation had become truly far-reaching.
Another stunning run of number 1 singles throughout 2016 led to Calyx & TeeBee’s third LP: ‘1X1’. Covering a wide spectrum of styles, the duo continued to evolve their unique sound and maintain a constant presence at the top of the DnB charts. Whilst the club and festival tours continued unabated, Calyx & TeeBee never let up with their studio productions, building up yet another incredible body of work which is set to be unleashed through the Spring & Summer of 2019 with a run of singles leading up to their highly-anticipated 4th LP.
