• It's been a massive summer for the Audio Bullys. The single "Shot You Down" featuring Nancy Sinatra spent 10 weeks riding high in the Top 10, peaked at Number 3, and has sold in excess of 175,000 copies. Now comes the follow up, "I'm In Love", which has all the hallmarks of another huge radio hit for the guys.
The Audio Bullys expertly mix up house and garage, beats and basslines, music and words to make a sound that could only occur from within London's metropolitan sprawl. Their sound is neither pure hip hop, nor uncut house or rudimentary garage, but all three - a uniquely young, British and energetic musical chemistry.
"I'm In Love" is one of the standout tracks from their second longplayer "Generation" which is currently being greedily digested by the media, and set to hit an eager audience on 10th October.
Playing on a radio near you very soon, "I'm In Love" effortlessly combines the dynamic sonics of Tom's backing with the ease of delivery of Simon's narratives. "I'm In Love" is, unsurprisingly, a song about love, but it's delivered Bullys style. Broken beats straddle building string harmonies and piano riffs.
The Bullys share an instinctive understanding of the dynamics of pop songwriting: the knack of locating the killer hooks, riffs, breakdowns and melodies that have consistently lifted their tracks out of the DJ underground and into the stratosphere of radio play and chart presence. This summer's undeniable chart hit (number 3) and club anthem 'Shot You Down' being a case in point, and "I'm In Love" is all set for a repeat performance.

The season 7 premiere guests featured some cast members we haven't seen much of for a while.
This year's Rotterdam event was definitely one to remember.
New album 'Flower Boy' comes later this summer.
