Bristolian duo The Allergies is comprised of the fantastic DJ Moneyshot & Rackabeat who are on a mission to take vintage sounds and reshape them for the modern dance floor. Since forming in 2012 and prior to signing to Jalapeno, the Allergies have racked up two EPs, a handful of remixes, and won over crowds worldwide.
While Moneyshot is no stranger to Jalapeno, the release of slo-mo disco funker Be With You was the first time the duo have appeared on the label. It was one of the standout tunes from the flagship label compilation Jalapeno Funk Vol. 6 (for which they also provided a suitably dance worthy DJ mix) and hopefully heralds a new Allergies-rich era here at Jalapeno.
They’ve won over some heavyweight fans with their killer tune Heartbreaker picked as Tune of the Month in Mixmag and up-tempo stomper As We Do Our Thing being championed on radio by the BBC’s Craig Charles. In their live shows their DJ sets mash up their funk influences with hard-earned hip-hop skills.
If you think the fun (and funk) factor has been missing from the breaks lately, then The Allergies might just have the remedy. See what we did there….
