In the spring of 2009 we put on the debut London show of a then-unknown band called Egyptian Hip Hop. Barely out of high school at the time, it was seriously early days for the Mancunian four piece but there was no denying the ridiculous potential on display. Now just over a year on, they still have the best name in the game and have put out their debut single with our friends at Hit Club, collaborated with the likes of Late of the Pier and Hudson Mohawke, and are currently readying their debut EP Some Reptiles Developed Wings for release on Moshi Moshi, esteemed purveyors of the finest new music the world has to offer since the beginning of time. With Mohawke at the helm on production duties, it's all brassy 80's synths and thick basslines, the sound of one of the most ambitious new bands in England harnessing their boundless creative energy and channeling it into a 3-minute gem of precocious pop perfection.
