Biography

There’s something dangerous threatening to come out from Bristol.

It starts with darkness; smoke fills the room, and drums start a hypnotic pulse. By the time you’ve heard those drums, it’s way too late. Six silhouettes emerge from the dim and from then on you’re in for the most exhilarating, chaotic session of your life. Thrashing percussion, filthy dub step, throbbing sub-bass, screaming guitars and mechanistic techno are comfortably united within the chant-laden songs of this genre defying and defining band. Their live show, sculptured into the form of an exhilarating DJ set but with the raucous energy of a band, burns into memory your initiation into The Other Tribe.

Don’t take it from me. Check it out for yourself. In a short space of time, the legend and hype surrounding The Other Tribe has grown. “It’s whispered…It’s almost dirty” purred the local student mag, Skint Magazine. “If you see one new band this year, make sure it’s the Other Tribe. I dare you not to dance.” Survive the Music blog adds: “Their live performances are nothing short of awe-inspiring”. When this band are put on in the second room in a club, the main room is mysteriously emptied whilst they go through their rituals; the converts only returning wide-eyed when the last echoed note has disappeared from the exhausted PA.

In their home City of Bristol they have supported touring acts such as Kissy Sellout, Hadouken! The Qemists, DJ Hype, Mystery Jets, and Chew Lips, and have added their tribal energy to Frankmusik, The Milk, and Pony Pony Run Run with their remixes. The guys of The Other Tribe are also no strangers to the DJ booth, providing the "sickest house and techno DJ set I seen to date" (Bass to the Face).

"I witnessed a perfect-for-festival’ set from an outfit called The Other Tribe. Cocky, rocky and deserving of the massive yell of the crowd that had thrown themselves around the dance floor." - Artful MTB Rocklands

The Other Tribe had a great 2011. At the start of Summer, they recorded their track Businessman On Diazepam with Mark Crew (Bastille) and released it out to blogs. My Bands Better, Niteversions, Boom Boom Chik along with 10 other blogs picked up on the track.

The band jumped in to the festival circuit and played Stokes Croft, We The People, Farr, Underhill, Hamswell, BeatHerder, Bristol Harbour Side, and Brisfest Festivals. Festivals are their natural environment and they picked up droves of fans at every one.

The Summer ended with a big show at the Electra End Of Summer Closing Party at Crucifix Lane, London Bridge. We had camera man Tom Kilburn on hand to record the night and the footage was used to make this video for Don’t Need No Melody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPeja9AAiHI
