Million Way has gained a lot of momentum in a short space of time,
and this, we can only assume, must be because they’re doing something
very right, right now.
Could it be Jasper’s fluent and visionary interpretation of SYNTH? Might it be Jimbo’s encyclopedic understanding of what to HIT and exactly when to HIT it? Or maybe it’s other Jim’s bafflingly complimentary DANCE moves?
MILLION WAY are a live electro/house trio, for want of a better
summary. They don’t have choruses or a singer, but they know exactly
what comprises a full dancefloor wig-out and they excel at making it
happen… a high-energy performance of musically vibrant and expertly
produced live electro, house, fidget, techno, booty and acid!!
Gigs a-plenty, and the gigs are SIZELY. Regularly
headlining around Bristol with a steadily growing fan base, shows
feature extravagant shape-pulling (on and off stage), having-it crowds,
stacks of LEDs, buttons and dials, drums, bass, live production and a
band giving it 300%. Always smiles, high-fives (on and off stage) and
intermittent flash photography..
Nods go out to the electronic greats; Daft Punk, Kraftwerk, Orbital,
Luke Vibert, Plump DJs, Drexciya to name a few. But Million Way also
comes from the three member’s many years on the UK festival and gig
circuits under various guises. Prime slots at Glastonbury, Shambala,
Larmer Tree, Wychwood, Beautiful Days, Bloom, around London and the
South West in acts including Heritage Orchestra, Smerins Anti Social
Club, Burly Chassis, Contraband, Alchemy Quartet, Ratfinks, Beggar Joe…
in short, Jasper and the Jims have been gathering the tricks of the
trade for full Million Way MAXIMAZATION!
2011 has begun with BBC RADIO 1 and BBC Bristol
already featuring tracks ‘Daft Pop’ and ‘Fidge’ from the band’s
eponymous debut EP. A busy summer is already in the diary and exciting
collaborations are on the cards… Million Way’s remit is pretty simple –
to make the CHUNKIEST tunes to inspire the FATTEST
parties. And from seeing how good these parties have quickly become, it
doesn’t look like Million Way are about to drop the tempo any time
