Pig&Dan aka Igor Tchkouta and Dan Duncan met on a flight. They’ve no doubt told the story countless times by this point, nearly two decades on from that chance encounter. But it does bear repeating because from that initial meeting they’ve since formed a formidable partnership as Pig&Dan.
Their discography is as impressive as their honesty when it comes to talking about the problems that are prevalent in the world of electronic music. Having released on labels like Soma, Suara, Drumcode Records, Bedrock and Sven Vath’s, Cocoon as well as playing parties across the globe on a weekly basis the duo has done it all. The up’s down’s, parties and after-parties.
Ahead of a return to their own label, Elevate with a stunning 3-track EP of thunderous warehouse delights we dialled up the infamous duo for our Behind The Headphone feature, to talk about the labels 150th release & the current state of electronic music.
