Four Letter Word Pres.
The synth and drums duo of Danalogue [Dan Leavers] and Betamax [Max Hallett] transmit epic synth-scapes over poly-rhythmic drums and infectious dance grooves in a brutal cocktail of tight electronica and the spontaneous energy of improvisation.

International touring as two-thirds of The Comet is Coming [with Shabaka Hutchings] or experimenting in various studios such as Total Refreshment Centre means these two are constantly busy shaping and evolving their own sound as well as that of the current bubbling underground of UK, jazz-influenced musicianship.
