Croydon based ‘Amusement’ have come a long way in the past 12 months. They successfully built up a reputation as a bedroom production duo with a series of acclaimed remixes for the likes of Theme Park, Outfit and Disclosure.

Not content with remixing other people’s music founding duo Andrew Smith and Joe Sigee recruited Ulysses Alvarez (drums) and Holly Hardy (bass) to make Amusement a fully-fledged live tour de force. That decision has proved a smart one with initial demos garnering praise from Huw Stephens, NME, Rob Da Bank and The Line Of Best.
We stumbled across this track ‘King Of The World’ and were smitten. It’s a stunning slice of dreamy pop euphoria. One listen and we were transported to a desserted beach running arm-in-arm with a loved one, screaming with joy and care-free abandon. Bliss.

Expect a new single in Spring 2013. We look forward to hearing more.
