London house duo The 2 Bears new EP, Bear Hug, is out now on Southern Fried Records, along with their new single of the same name.
Raf Rundell and Joe Goddard - aka The 2 Bears - first began crossing paths while DJing. Both have a shared love of house and UK garage music. Their debut EP, called Follow the Bears, came out in April last year and since then they have received support from DJs such as Annie Mac, Rob da Bank and Giles Peterson.
When not DJing, the two spend their time doing solo projects - Goddard is one fifth of Hot Chip and Rundell hosts various radio shows in his native South London.
