Last updated: 06/09/2012 11:00:00 AM
Based either side of London but originally hailing from the same small town in Essex, the duo's immaculate conception was born in a half hour burst of creative alchemy and has since created enormous buzz, combining witty and shockingly spot-on decrees from the mind of vocalist Scroobius Pip with producer dan le sac's mesmeric electro blessed beats.
While only ever intended as a low-key limited edition 7", the duo's first single Thou Shalt Always Kill emerged victorious as the thinking man's 2007 summer anthem. The fuse was lit when the song quickly became the most publicly requested track in all eternity on XFM's Xposure show. Rave reviews followed, with The Guardian (London) endorsing it as "2007's first underground anthem" and NME enthusing "Scroobius Pip, you've written the Track Of The Year." Radio rotation rocketed with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe naming it the Hottest Track in The World Right Now, and later his Single Of The Week. With their low-fi video having clocked up nearly a colossal 2 million views on YouTube, le sac and Pip suddenly found themselves topping Best Of 2007 lists across the globe.
Not ones to rest on their laurels, le sac and Pip have spent the summer crafting their debut album, due out in the spring of 2008. In between recording, the duo have been wreaking havoc at live shows and are setting their sites on the US and beyond in 2008. Anyone yet to witness the pair's awesome prop-embellished live set is in for a real treat.
