Bio

The inimitable production/DJ duo Ming + FS return with their grab bag of genre-crushing beats and breaks. Never regarded as one-trick ponies, the Hells Kitchen residents push the boundaries of their hip-hop/drum & bass hybrid, peppering it with moody funk and atmospheric electronics. Blistering breakbeat workouts make way for hazy head-nodders and psychedelic jungle rollers, sometimes within the same track.

After meeting at a New York City party in 1996, the pair christened themselves Lead Foot and began creating their own breakbeat tracks, eventually establishing their own label and production studio, Madhattan Studios. Catching the ear of the underground community, they began producing tracks for a host of artists and labels, including DJ Spooky, Jungle Sky and Ubiquity. In addition, the two released the limited edition and now highly collectable Bar Mitzvah Breaks series of 12"s. Not only have these 12"s found love from mash-up kingpin Z-Trip and Beastie Boys DJ Mix Master Mike, but genius turntablist DJ Craze used them to win two DMC championships in 1999 and 2000. Soon, bookings were flooding in from around the world and Ming + FS hit the road with a four turntable circus. Combining turntable trickery with a penchant for straight ahead party rocking, the Ming + FS live experience includes live remixes of favorites like Black Sabbath, Missy Elliot, Ludacris, Michael Jackson and more. Eventually linking up with San Francisco indie Om Records and changing their name to Ming + FS, they released the classic Hells Kitchen album, which would be featured in URB's "Next 100" as well as in the pages of Spin, XLR8R and Mixer. Blazing records would follow: Sound Gizmo Audio: Applied Pressure, a classic drum n bass double 12", and two more albums for Om: The Human Condition, a foray into house and breaks and their rugged return to form, the Subway Series EP.

With their reputation established, Ming + FS have been invited to share the stage with some of the most adventurous names in music, such as Run DMC, Moby, Sting, Paul Oakenfold, Kruder & Dorfmeister and The Roots.
