The Belfast duo have turned hard work and a fierce passion for great music into DJ stardom and now an incredible live act and debut album. Here the power pair take us through the tracks they've selected for their amazing cover mix.

Listen to the mix below and read Bicep's track-by-track underneath.

1. Raica ‘Makmba’

“Awesome beatless track that was originally roughly 80bpm. It’s always amazing when you pitch tracks up by 50 per cent and they work perfectly in key with something way faster!”

2. Supreems ‘Close Your Eyes (And Feel)’

“A fantastic cut from one of our favourite up-and-coming producers. Deep and vibey with great melodies and vocals”

3. DG Sound Project ‘Xabrax’ (Percussor mix)

“Beautiful deepness from ’92 that’s also pretty fun”

4. Dillon ‘A Matter Of Time’ (Monokle remix)

“We played this one on Rinse a few years ago and totally forgot about it until doing this mix – it just popped into our head as we were preparing and fitted well. Love the dusty crunchy drums”

5. Kaytronik ‘I Say’

“Raw, heavy MPC jam from Karizma under his Kaytronik alias”

6. Jill Scott ‘Love Of A Rainy Day’ (Bicep edit)

“We used to play this loads but always felt it needed a little bit of extra punch, so we did a quick edit for this mix, adding some new drums and changing the layout a little. This is how most of our edits come about – when we want to place a track in a mix or show but they maybe don’t quite fit”

7. Chip E ‘No Reason’ (Bicep edit)

“Fond memories of playing the original on Barcelona beach 13 years ago with old-skool friends. It was kind of our Sónar anthem! Here we’ve just readjusted the layout to tease the vocal in a bit more and play on the acid vibe”

8. Bushwacka! ‘Chorus’

“Shouts to Call Super for the heads up on this one! Amazing, raw, emotive house track”

9. Digital Justice ‘No Profit’ (Bicep edit)

“Love the beatless original – we’ve really just added some 909 and SH101 bass to make it work in our sets. We originally made this for our Warehouse Project set last year”

10. 2000 And One ‘Geometric Nature’

One of 2000 And One’s first releases back in 1992. Fantastic, emotive, Detroit-inspired techno”
