2014 was a big year for Bearcubs as the success of his single, ‘Touch’, was picked up by some of the biggest names in the scene and garnered over 750,000 plays on YouTube, catapulting this young producer into the limelight. As the Spring months are now upon us and 2015 moves towards the festival season, Bearcubs has released another single that promises true progression as an artist already.
‘Paper Walls’ is another chilled affair with the vocals taking centre stage but with a far more experimental feel. To celebrate this release and his headline show at the Waiting Room on 15th April in Stoke Newington, we thought we’d go on a tour with Bearcubs to a city that shaped his musical career, Brighton. A city of music, individualism and stunning scenery, there’s no doubt it has had huge influence on the music Bearcubs delivers, so let’s step into it.
Where’s the best place for a first date?
Meet at the giant bronze donut and take a stroll down the beach front, maybe grab a drink at Ohso bar on the way back if things have gone well.
Where’s your favourite place to chill and clear your head?
Cycling along the under-cliff pass between Brighton and Rottingdean, it’s like being in a different country in summer.
Where can you get the best breakfast to cure your hangover?
Probably Kensingtons, in the North Laines, you can eat on the balcony there, sea air is good for hangovers.
Where’s your favourite place to party?
The live funk band playing covers of Wu-Tang Clan at Casablanca Jazz Club is always a ridiculous night.
Where’s your favourite place to drink?
The Reservoir was my local, always a nice place for a drink, good food too, damn this is making me want to go back to Brighton.
