Ever since AlunaGeorge came onto the scene with a tracks like 'Analyser' and 'We Are Chosen', BNC have been eager to tell everyone how good they really are. Now that their new single is fast approaching its release date we felt compelled to get in touch.

We would like to ask about your next release on the 29th, can you tell us a bit about the track and the remixes included?

The single 'You Know You Like It' came about from trying to make a song based around one "beat". Mainly inspired from the way hip hop producers seem to work and manage to produce complete songs that work around a single 8 bar loop. The remixes were sorted out by the guys at super, Raffertie was kind enough to offer to do a remix and it was ace to get the B-15 project one too.

 We would all like to know how you both work as a duo, is it 50/50? Do you both get involved with the vocal and production side of things? 

The writing is a real joint effort. We have our main roles but we're both keen to suggest ideas and pointers to the other. We're lucky to be able to approach the writing from a few different ways which helps us getting out of writing slumps.

Whats to come from you in the future? We would also like to know what your relationship with Super is like and why you chose raffertie to do a remix?

The guys at Super are awesome, real nice guys plus Raffertie is hands down one of the most talented people I've ever met. We're trying to get an album together right now. Also playing a few live shows at the moment, we might be looking to do another release before the end of the year too if all goes to plan.
