Visual artist and actor Nathan Cochran, produces experimental folk, electronica and hip-hop under the alias, Spies On Bikes.
The Spies On Bikes project has been running just over 2 years now, and the dude has gone from creating hip-hop beats, to future garage, to electronica, to ‘folktronica’; his current style of beatmanship. Characterised by warm old school synths, hip-hop drum patterns, and folk vocals, Spies On Bikes productions make for laid back Sunday afternoon listening. The lo-fi nature of the beats allow the listener to unwind, and straight max and relax.
Dude’s latest release and debut album “Man Overboard” (2012), is an ambient, atmospheric, folktronica album with elements of hip-hop and future garage. Some personal favourite tracks off the release include, “Warm”, “Long Walks And Recorded Talks”, and “Love Like Hours”.
