Two Fingers
Two Fingers
Two Fingers began with Amon Tobin and Joe “Doubleclick” Chapman. The pair met when Tobin lived in Brighton and bonded over an interest in music that ran way beyond the boundaries of “electronica”. While Tobin was living in Montreal, they began bouncing beats back and forth, trying to apply production techniques associated with UK styles like drum & bass to the template of hip hop. When they had a few tunes together they sent them to Sway. He was so taken with what they were doing, he flew straight out to Montreal and recorded seven tracks with them. The remaining rhythms were voiced by sometime Missy protégé Ms Jade and dancehall legend Cecile.

2012 saw the release of "Stunt Rhythms", which is the first Two Fingers release to be produced solely by Amon Tobin, since the departure of Joe Chapman.
Sketchy Pete
DC native, Northern Virginia resident, Peter Nguyen brings bass a new flavor with original tracks and compiled mixes that combine hip hop, funk, and everything in between. He’s been inspired by music from age, being introduced to the school choir/band in the fifth grade. His music career started like many others in a best friend’s basement where he developed a love for electronic music, gaining his name from skateboarding where he rarely landed clean tricks, "sketchy”. He is inspired by old school hip hop, new school Bass, and anything else he is feeling, including The Jurassic 5, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Star, Lupe Fiasco, (Pre-Carter 3)Lil Wayne, Kanye West, J. DIlla, Nujabees, Dr. Dre, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Tipper, Rusko, Flamingosis, Gladkill, The Black Keys, Rage Against the Machine, and John Mayer. He is the illusive, imaginary and sometimes a little bit sketchy, Pete.
