The 2 Bears (Joe from Hot Chip) released ‘The Night is Young,’ going on DJ tour this month (dates, streams)
by Bill Pearis
The 2 Bears, which is Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and mate Raf Rundell, released their second album, The Night Is Young, earlier this year and it’s more of their fun, ’90s-style Eurodance (with some dancehall as well), pure party music. There’s nothing quite as awesome as “Bear Hug” this time, but it’s still worth giving a spin — you can check out videos for singles “Not This Time” and “Money Man,” plus snippets of the rest of the album, below.
Joe and Raf will be going on a DJ tour later this month, starting with a NYC date at Verboten on November 19. Curses and Pixelife will be on the decks as well and tickets are on sale now.
West Coast dates of the tour also feature a Hot Chip DJ set as well. Speaking of Hot Chip, Al and Felix will be in NYC with their other band, New Build, in December.
