New Zealand brothers Ben and Louis Helliker-Hales have been working together for the past 8 years, producing and DJing informed house and techno under the name Chaos In The CBD. The duo works with motifs drawn from the historical continuum of house music, paying homage to the timeless classics of the dance music spectrum.

Their relocation to London in 2012 brought with it a string of well-received records through independent labels such as ClekClekBoom, Amadeus, Needwant and Hot Haus Recordings. Recently in 2015 the brothers had somewhat of an international breakthrough year after releasing stellar EPs for London labels Church and Rhythm Section International. Both releases demonstrated the pair’s penchant for starry-eyed, jazz-inflicted deep house, a sound they have been honing since 2011.

Early 2016 saw the release of their most recent record Digital Harmony on Mule Musiq further enhancing the pair’s ears for complex, organic sounding drums mixed with tonal elements helping to create warm, hazy dance floor excursions.

With their ever strengthening production credentials the brothers have been able to mark themselves out as one of the most eminent underground duos to emerge out of the South Pacific. The pair split their time between the studio and performing around Europe and the UK as well as closer to the their native home in New Zealand and Australia.
