Forged in the nightclubs of Newcastle and now based around the marshes of Northeast London, SDF are Adam Parkinson (AKA Dane Law), Oliver Marchant (AKA RKB Vitesse, who runs the micro tape label Vitamin Concept together with Bas Jan’s Serafina Steer) and quantum physicist Lucy Whalley.
SDF are an experimental pop/wild disco project releasing on Lost Map Records. Songs feature everyday – or rather every night – stories around such subjects as the yellow vest protests, the fall of Caesar, future energy collapse and synthetic sugar substitutes, set to machine drums, lysergic synthesisers and sub heavy basslines, while Oliver and Lucy blend storytelling with dubbed-out mantras to the coming night.
SDF is friends playing their relationship to each other and to time. SDF is machine folk. SDF is a vision glimpsed in a mist. SDF is a state of mind. SDF is a way of life.
