Phil and Bren of Splitloop admit to exploring other genres when writing 'Pleasure Machine', the broadening of their horizons has had a profound influence on the Splitloop sound. "You can't be looking only to one genre to get inspiration for your music," reckons Bren. "That would just be a ridiculous feedback loop".

"We're at a stage where we really just wanted to make music we thought was really good and moving our sound forward, not worrying about what anyone else would think."
Dipping their toes into other styles of electronic music has certainly paid off for the guys. 'Pleasure Machine' has a velvety sheen, touching on modern sexy D. Ramirez-type electro-house, juddery Justice riddims, old skool electro, Plumpy breaks, bleepy Trickyesque bizness, speak 'n' spell robotica and a hell of a lot more. There's a consistency to their sound that glazes the whole album - sexy electronic dance music that'll be rocking floors from Brighton to Beijing, quite simply 'Pleasure Machine' is bang on the money.
Accumulating all the tools to soundtrack a fantastic night out, the Splitloop guys have set the dials for pleasure. The touring that's going to be accompanying this album is going to bring them into contact with a whole new set of pleasure-seeking individuals.
Bren is philosophical about their early career. "Our first studio had a broken toilet, so everything smelled like piss," he remembers. "We could never afford monitors 'cos all our money went on pills and beer. As soon as we gave up pills, we bought monitors and got signed."
Naming themselves after one of their first productions together, the guys started making a name for themselves and in no time at all, were signed to Krafty Kuts' leading breaks label Against The Grain. With a artist roster that also boasts artists such as The Freestylers, Deekline & Wizard, Ed Solo & Skool Of Thought, the guys new they were seriously starting to make waves.
