"The idea of a good night of dance music being a secular, group experience that can make you feel good is a necessary thing when times are hard. We're not religious people, but as a DJ, you're always trying to create that sense of communion" - JOE GODDARD, THE 2 BEARS

The legendary Todd Terry is behind the latest EP and remix package from The 2 Bears available on Southern Fried from August 28th. A joyous amalgamation of Chicago tinged house and freestyle dub adventures, Terry further enforces The 2 Bears manifesto of late night hedonism and introduces warm and inviting undertones to his dub stylings of Get Together and Ghost & Zombies.

Taken from the much lauded debut album Be Strong, an album that delighted clubland and critics in equal measure, these remixes are a further tribute to Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell's shared passion for the communal, uniting forces of dance music.

A London record through and through, the album Be Strong took the myriad sounds of the city and its vibrant dance music scene, and re-connected the genre with the mainstream. Alongside tracks like Be Strong, Church and the mighty Bear Hug - a pummelling treatise on the benefits of the peak time dancefloor cuddle - Raf Daddy and Joe Goddard have mutated genres into previously unheard territories. 'Dancehall country' on the bouncing prison yard lament Time In Mind and garage reggae on Heart Of the Congos, a track that manages to simultaneously channel both Wookie and early '80s Madness before placing them each at a system in the heart of Notting Hill Carnival.
