Considered one of the most important bands from Britain and one of the coolest and cutting edge electronic bands around, Hot Chip have played just about every major festival the world over since forming in 2000, including Glastonbury, Sonar, Ultra Miami, Coachella, Bonaroo, Reading, V Festival, and Electronic Picknic.
Vocalist and keyboardist Alexis Taylor, guitarist Al Doyle, and drummer Felix Martin have been DJing together for years at some of the world's most important clubs, including Space Ibiza, Berghain and Panoramabar, We Love.., and Plastic People; and alongside of the world's biggest underground artists, including M.A.N.D.Y, DJ T, Derrick May, and Loco Dice, to name but a few.
The tracks Felix and Al play out have a become a source of inspiration for Hot Chip's records over the years, best represented by their mix of one of the world's legendary DJ compilation series, DJ Kicks, in 2007. Here is a film about that mix:
