Twin Beam is a collaborative project between brothers Oscar and Athol Cassidy, working as a composition/ performance/ production team.
Twin Beam’s style is a blend of funk, electronica, rock and ambient as can be heard on their releases and remixes for other artists. An interest in video game and film soundtracks is quite evident in their sound.
Working on commissions, however, they are comfortable working in areas as distinct as soundscapes, orchestral compositions or rock band work.
Oscar and Athol have worked mainly as session musicians in the UK funk scene, having played with bands such as Smoove and Turrell and Nick Pride and The Pimptones. Between them, they have taken part in many radio appearances across Europe including BBC radio 2, 4 and 6. Over years of experience, they have worked with record labels such as Acid Jazz, Record Kicks and Jalepeno Records. They have played countless festivals such as Glastonbury and Big Chill and have had music featured on films for Cattleya/ Universal Pictures (with The Pimptones) and video game expos such as Evo 2011 and Capcom's 25th Anniversary Street Fighter Tournament (with Project Dolphin).
Two EPs were released in limited numbers to very positive reviews and now they are working with an expanded live line up featuring bassist John Pope and guest vocalists to commence new recordings and gigs.
