Topman CTRL returns for 2012 with Huw Stephen’s back at the helm. Once again, the Radio 1 presenter will be joined by a guest controller each month to present the best in new music from around the globe. First up are The 2 Bears, AKA Raf Rundell and Joe Goddard, whose critically acclaimed debut album Be Strong is a heady brew of up-tempo, catchy house tunes and sparkling electro-pop songs.
In addition to The 2 Bears submitting their own videos, posts and updates, there’ll be CTRL live sessions, off the wall interview clips, blog recommendations and loads more to boot. You’ll find it all at the ‘feed’, so check out www.topman.com/ctrl to see what’s happening. And don’t forget to share what’s making you tick – if you like it, tell Huw. #TopmanCTRL
To celebrate hooking up with Huw Stephens to be the first Guest Controllers for 2012, The 2 Bears have given Topman CTRL an exclusive remix of their track ‘Heart Of The Congos’, by the groove master that is Grovesnor, available to download absolutely free from www.topman.com/ctrl. Grovesnor, AKA Rob Smoughton, a one-man band and veritable musical titan, takes one of the stand out tracks from the Bears Top 40 charting album Be Strong and warps it from melancholy, stuttering dub into a blinding deep house belter that’s destined to ignite any dance floor.
Huw loves it. And they hope you do too.
