2011's been a busy one for Texas duo Tritonal - Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed to their respective mums. So tuned-in are the pair that they claim to “finish each other's musical sentences”.
The duo formed in 2007 whilst 1500 miles apart - Chad was in Austin, home of the annual SXSW music festival, whilst Dave was in Washington DC. But such was the musical chemistry between the two, Dave would eventually up sticks to go and join his new musical partner in Texas. It's been a fruitful collaboration - their schedules are jam-packed, and they've released stuff on labels like Armada, Anjunabeats and Alter Ego.
This year, the guys have largely been focusing on their debut long-player 'Piercing The Quiet', which featured a collaboration with fellow Austin resident Critina Soto. They also found time to launch their own label, Air Up There Recordings, which they say will deal exclusively in “emotional, melodic, forward-thinking dance music”. KRISTIAN DANDO
