UK veterans Posthuman are cousins Josh Doherty & Richard Bevan.
Writing music together as teenagers in the late 90s, their debut album ‘Uncertainty of the Monkey’ was named by Pitchfork as “one of the best electronic albums of 2001”. They made a name for themselves playing at Warp Records parties, then founding their own label Seed Records and hosting events with the likes of Aphex Twin and Goldfrapp in an abandoned tube station in London, before founding their own famous clubnight ‘I Love Acid’ in 2007
Now regarded as spearheads of the modern UK Acid House scene alongside the likes of Ceephax Acid Crew, Paranoid London, Luke Vibert and Jerome Hill. The duo remain DJ residents at ‘I Love Acid’ – well over a hundred events since 2007 in London, plus regular events (until Covid…) across the UK and in Europe, as well as their annual summer party in Malta, and guest stages at festivals like Bloc Weekend and Bangface. ‘I Love Acid’ won DJ Magazine’s Best British Club Event award in 2019. They also run a label of the same name, which has sold out 25 records in a row, often in less than an hour
On their own label they have released music and collaborated with acid legends like Hardfloor, LFO and DJ Pierre, while also releasing records by contemporary producers like Alinka, Black Girl / White Girl, Nightwave and Lauren Flax.
Their signature sound of raw acid house and slo-mo moody techno has been released on Lobster Theremin, X-Kalay, Tusk Wax, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, B12, Chiwax, Shipwrec, Craigie Knowes, Food Music, plus their own imprints Balkan Vinyl & I Love Acid. Posthuman’s shows are often live/DJ hybrid, varying from DJ sets to full on hardware shows with 101, 303, 606, 808, 909 action –mixing hardware jams spliced with acid house edits, sometimes featuring live vocals from singer Josh Caffe, and regular back to back DJ sets with Hacienda resident & acid house legend Jon Dasilva.
