London based dub house and techno duo ‘Because of Art’ is the combination of two musical veterans who have pooled their sonic influences and backgrounds.
Individually they've been cutting their teeth in the music industry for over a decade, gaining a wealth of experience that has showed dividends in their combined project as 'Because of Art'.
Michael Frost worked his way from bedroom DJ, to raver, to respected Promoter, working with some of the countries leading nightlife entities such as Lock N Load and Motion Bristol, teaming up with hometown pal Alex Grover, a DJ that has more aliases than you and I hot dinners! Grover began DJ'ing and producing at the tender age of 14 and for the past 18 years has worked his way through this winding industry, with releases on Simma Black, Country Club Disco and Dusty grooves.
When interviewing the dub techno duo I soon realised the name "Because of Art" ran deeper than the two's admiration for "London legend" Artwork's sound. They are the combination of Artworks mischievous nature, music knowledge, hard work and love for the scene, drawing from their own independent journeys within the industry, coming together to make a great partnership.
The duo are the perfect example of working hard and being resourceful, "looking after the social media, advertisement and general marketing and promoting is all done by us, sitting on the train on the way home trying to get things done"
The guys expressed their huge excitement for the EvermixBOX4 with crowed capture, looking forward to relieving some of the moments in their sets.
These guys produced a three track EP, pressed 250 vinyl's, opened up for Dusky at Motion and sign external artist tracks to their label .... all this while holding down day jobs. This is why we've chosen Because of Art as our first Spotlight Session.
