CMD/CTRL is what CMD/CTRL does: a hybrid of hooks, beats and trashy basslines. Formed after a chance meeting at a party in 2015 in the seaside town of Brighton, they take the spin-the-bottle sensibility of the playlist generation and make music with no boundaries: with mosh pit worthy noise.
Soon after forming they signed to Ninja Tunes publishing arm Just Isn’t Music and started honing the CMD/CTRL sound! They found early success collaborating with ‘The Dirtyphonics’ for their ‘Write Your Future’ EP which came out on Steve Aioki’s Dimmak label in 2015, which later led to them to work with Bass Music heavyweight ‘Excison’ for the single ‘Again & Again’.
They soon built a makeshift studio in the front room of their flat and put it to good use: Writing and producing over 50 tracks over the next 4 years, designing the logo and living the big beat manifesto! "Big beats are the best get high all the time"
CMD/CTRL’s music continues to smash it in the sync world to with brands like Adidas, Nintendo and Playstation all featuring their songs while critically acclaimed TV Series such as Orange Is The New Black, House Of Cards and Orphan Black have all used there music. So far over a 100 different brands have used their music world wide!
