The Allergies Arrive in Swansea!

Since forming in 2012 The Allergies have made it their mission to reshape funky vintage sounds for the modern dancefloor.

Both skilled turntablists in their own right, and known for their 45 only vinyl sets, the duo of DJ Moneyshot & Rackabeat first bonded over their love of classic hip hop and beats, then decided to pool their knowledge and skills into making their own music.

“We like breaks, funky basslines, horns, and dancefloor grooves. We’re inspired by the golden eras of funk, soul, disco and hip hop, and we try and cram that into three and a half minutes”.

Along the way they’ve racked up two ‘Tune of the Month’ awards in Mixmag, topped download charts, and helped headline the BBC 6 Music festival in their native Bristol last year.

In 2015 they were snapped up by Jalapeno Records, and dropped their debut album, As We Do Our Thing, a year later. On release it gained ‘Album of the Day’ status on 6 Music, and became the bestselling hip hop album in the iTunes and Juno charts.
