Cage & Aviary

Cage & Aviary

Part man, part machine, part cockatiel, Cage & Aviary take flights of fancy whenever they can. Jamie Paton is a DJ, a one-finger keyboardist, and a pot-tickler. Nigel of Bermondsey is a musician, South London’s finest oscillator, and a dedicated dabbler.

 

Having put out releases to much acclaim on the ltd editions that are Dissident Distribution, Cage & Aviary have since spread their wings with releases on DFA, Tiny Sticks, and Astro Lab. Their own label, The Walls Have Ears, is slowly carving out a reputation for quality dubbed-out dance music too – the Cage & Aviary remix series has met with great critical acclaim thus far, with the likes of Andy Blake, Gatto Fritto, Prins Thomas, Horse Meat Disco, Mock N toof, Bill Brewster, Soft Rocks, Tim Sweeney, James Murphy, Tiga, Erol Alkan and other such luminaries counted amongst fans of their work.

 

So what’s next for South-East London’s resident bird-fanciers? It’s heads down in the studio to produce some more of their own material, with a series of EPs in the pipeline and an album scheduled for the end of this year / beginning of next.
