1320 Records has become a pillar of America's electronic music industry, taking pride in packing their roster with high-caliber acts like Big Gigantic, Emancipator, Eliot Lipp, and the powerful and mightily talented soul-hop duo Archnemesis. Its members, Curt Heiny and Justin Aubuchon, are known for slapping old school blues licks and soul acapellas on top of fiery bass and cutting edge beats. Since signing with 1320 last year, Archnemesis released a 5 track EP, Diamonds and Glass, and more recently distributed People’s Radio, their debut full-length album this past fall. “Sugar” is the quintessential Archnemesis composition, featuring deep vocals, booming bass, and a grinding beat that doesn't fall into the trappings of today's flash-in-the-pan soundscapes. The cut is a mature production, showing off the strides Aubuchon and Heiny have made in the relatively short time they've been working together. Archnemesis caps off 2011--a year which catapulted the pair to new heights, and major tours with Zoogma, Kraddy, Mochipet, and STS9--at the big NYE bash Lights All Night in Dallas alongside some of the biggest acts in the business. Let's see what 2012 has in store for your favorite supervillains.
