Way back In January 1995, Ollie Teeba and Jake Wherry, a sample-based beatmaking duo from Twickenham, South West London, released their debut 12” single ‘The Real Killer’ on UK label Ninja Tune. The Herbaliser were deeply immersed in Hip Hop culture and heavily into digging around in dusty record bins looking for funky samples. As well as jazz and soul records, they had a particular taste in old movie soundtracks, which would become a particular characteristic of their production sound. Inspired by funk bands, the duo decided to tour with a full live band from 1999 onwards. On the spring tour, The Herbaliser will be playing music off Band Session 1 & 2, released in 2009. All but Kaidi Tatham and Jake Wherry from the original line-up wil be on the Moods stage.
